Day 1: Welcome to Zagreb!

Today is all about starting your adventure in Zagreb, the capital of Croatia. Zagreb is not just the biggest city, but it is also the centre for culture, economy, movies, sports, and government in the country. After arriving, check in at your hotel. Later, join other visitors for the Zagreb Evening Tour. The meeting point is at the Tourist Information Centre on Ban Josip Jelačić Square 11. The tour lasts around 2.5 to 3 hours.

During the tour, explore Zagreb with an English-speaking guide. Discover its famous historical sights and monuments. Listen to interesting stories about how two mediaeval cities came together to form the Zagreb we know today, the capital of Croatia. After an exciting day of exploration, spend the night at your hotel in Zagreb.

Day 2: Explore Plitvice Lakes National Park

Start your day with a delicious breakfast before checking out. Head to the Zagreb bus terminal, where you will catch a coach to Plitvice, one of Croatia's stunning national parks. Plitvice Lakes is like a precious gem in Croatia's natural beauty collection, boasting sixteen interconnected lakes and 92 breathtaking waterfalls.

Take some free time to immerse yourself in the park's wonders, featuring diverse plant and animal life. The main attractions include the Upper Lakes, a group of 12 lakes separated by travertine barriers. Kozjak Lake, the largest and deepest lake in the park, is must-see. It is unique because nature fused two smaller lakes into one, creating the only navigable lake in Plitvice. Do not miss Stephanie's Island on Kozjak Lake, named after an Austrian princess who visited in 1888.

Explore the Lower Lakes, known for idyllic scenes of small waterfalls, turquoise water, and lush greenery. Nearby, you will find the Šupljara underground cave. The highlight of the Lower Lakes is the Great Waterfall, standing at an impressive 78 metres, making it the tallest waterfall in Croatia. After an exciting day of exploration, check into your hotel in Plitvice for a well-deserved overnight stay.

Day 3: Explore Zadar with a Guided Evening Tour

Start your day with breakfast and hop on a coach from Plitvice to Zadar in the morning. After checking out, head to the bus terminal for your journey to Zadar.

Dubrovnik is a beautiful city in southern Croatia by the Adriatic Sea. It's famous for its charming Old Town, surrounded by strong stone walls built in the 16th century. The city boasts well-preserved buildings like the baroque St. Blaise Church, the Renaissance Sponza Palace, and the Gothic Rector’s Palace (now a history museum).

You will start by sailing between Hvar and the small islands of Ravnik and Biševo. Your first stop is the Green Cave, where you can swim inside and enjoy the beautiful emerald light. Next, you will head to a hidden spot called Stiniva for a refreshing swim or some relaxation in the sun.

After Stiniva, you will visit the famous Blue Cave. The magical silvery blue colour inside the cave is created by the sunlight entering through an opening in the roof and reflecting off the sandy surface below.

Your journey continues to the legendary island of Vis. You will have an hour of free time to explore this charming seaside village before you set off for the Paklinski Islands.
