Attractions from Croatia

Ban Jelacic Square (Croatia)
Zagreb's great square and gathering place is named after Count Ban Jelacic, who ruled the city in the latter half of the 19th Century. The square is surrounded by great palatial buildings and in its centre is the fountain that, according to local lore, lent Zagreb its name. In the summertime, the square is full of life and festivities due to the large crowds of people that gather here.
Porec (Croatia)
The Romans also left their mark on the city of Porec - along with the 6th Century Byzantines, who built the famous basilica with its unique mosaics. The Middle Ages can be found in Porec in the form of towers, walls and palaces in both Gothic and Baroque styles.
Split (Croatia)
The main city on the Dalmatian Coast is going on 1700 years, and is still very much alive. Fascinating museums abound in Split; the city's Roman history alone is the subject of two of them. In addition, there are several interesting art galleries.
The Mimara Museum (Croatia)
The Mimara is a huge building - impressive inside and out. The museum is home to a vast collection of European art from the last several hundred years, as well as a prehistoric collection.
The Three Rivieras (Croatia)
Opatija, Crikvenica, and Novi Vinodolski grace the Kvarner Coast like three pearls on a string. The largest, Opatija, has welcomed visitors since the 1800s, when the royal family of Austria-Hungary first fell in love with its natural beauty. To this day, tourism is very important to the region. Among the essential attractions are the fabulous botanical gardens.
Trogir (Dalmatian Coast)
On the strength of its medieval town centre, this idyllic town has been given the prestigious designation 'part of World Cultural Heritage' by the United Nations organization UNESCO. And it is truly a remarkable sight. Among the highlights of Trogir are the Kamerlengo citadel, the Tower of St. Marc, and the many Christian shrines.
The Placa (Dubrovnik)
A walk along the pedestrian promenade known as the Placa showcases all the best Dubrovnik has to offer. Stop on the way at the Franciscan monastery, which holds Europe's oldest pharmacy, dating back over 600 years. The Placa also takes you to the Baroque church of St. Blaise and the Gothic Rector's Palace from 1441, which serves as a museum today.
The ancient city of Pula (Istria)
Of course, the ancient Romans also turned up at their near neighbours, a fact that is beautifully manifested in the 3000 year old city of Pula. As was their habit, the Romans left behind a great amphitheatre. It is still in use today and looks just like the Colosseum in Rome.
The Rovinj peninsula (Istria)
The centre of the Rovinj peninsula in Istria is dominated by the 57 metre tall cathedral of St. Eophemia. But Rovinj is also a good place to go for the tranquillity of a small fishing village after the bustle of the touristy region.
Cres (Kvarner Coast)
The island of Cres is the centre of hiking on the Kvarner Coast. You'll find the best trails in the region here, but there is also plenty to see for visitors who just want to admire the astonishing landscape with a minimum of effort.
