1. Zagreb
Stay
About the city: Often forgotten by tourist seeking the sun and coastline, Zagreb is an alluring destination on its own. The capital city of Croatia is a perfect mixture of Western and Eastern Europe. The sober Austro-Hungarian buildings are surrounded by chic restaurants and boutiques that contrast with the seedy pubs and loud beer halls. Zagreb offers a wide choice for visitors. From trendy art galleries to more traditional music halls and museums, and outdoor leisure, a lot of outdoor leisure. Maksimir Park, in the east, is filled with joggers, bikers and strollers. In the southeast of the city, we find Jarun Lake, where locals and tourists alike go to swim or sail and to, afterwards, dance the night away in a lakeside disco. Just a ride away on the shine new trams, we find Mt Medvednica that offers hiking, skiing and great views over the city. Either you are looking for a city break or a break from your lazy beach holidays, Zagreb won’t disappoint visitors in the slightest.

2. Rovinj
Stay
About the city: Rovinj is a beautiful and picturesque small town situated on the western coast of the Istria peninsula. Because of its mild climate, sunny days, warm sea, attractive scenery as well as its historical monuments and old town, it is popular destination throughout the whole year. The islands of Rovinj archipelago, make for a pleasant afternoon away; the most popular islands are Sveta Katarina and Crveni Otok (Red Island), also known as Sveti Andrija. The Old Town is lovely with beautiful cobble-stone paths and Mediterranean-style old houses adorn the streets. Grisia is the lifeblood of the town, the main street of the old core, a street with a vast array of art galleries and a place no visitor of Rovinj should miss. This winding street of irregular shape rises up to the cathedral. The street is paved with the same white Istrian stone that was used to build many prestigious palaces and churches in Venice. The cathedral of St Euphemia dominates the skyline of Rovinj. The church originated in early Christian times. It was rebuilt in 1736 with its facade added in the middle of the 20th century in Venetian-baroque style. At the top of the 60 m. high bell tower, there is a copper statue of St. Euphemia, the patron saint of the town, that turns as the wind changes. Zavicajni muzej, the Local Museum, has an archaeological and an ethnographic collection, a gallery of paintings made by old and contemporary masters, a library and an archive. The museum is housed in the 17th century Baroque palace which once belonged to Califfi counts. Besides being museum the palace serves also as an important exhibition space. Red roofs, yellow walls, blue sea and a constant flow of boats, cosy up together in picturesque perfection. To state the obvious, Rovinj is very beautiful, probably one of the most beautiful places in Europe.

3. Dubrovnik
Stay
About the city: George Bernard Shaw called Dubrovnik “the pearl of the Adriatic, a paradise on earth”, and, indeed, it may be one of the most beautiful cities you’ll ever see. Largely built and long inhabited by Venetians, Dubrovnik possesses a stately charm and striking architectural unity that draw thousands of visitors every summer. Founded in 7th century, Dubrovnik stood amid a great forest of oak trees, from which it took its name. Take a walk atop the old city walls for vistas of the old town and the surrounding coast. Just before exiting the old town through the western gate, turn right to visit the Franciscan Monastery and peaceful cloisters. Just inside the entrance is the oldest European pharmacy, founded in 1371. In the northern corner of the old city is the Dominican Cloister and Museum, with a polyptych by Titian. The impressive Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary stands in the centre of Poljana Marin Držić and its treasury can be visited; look for the work by Raphael. Dubrovnik has warm, crystalline waters; don’t just admire it from a distance and take a dive. The intrepid can dive and sunbathe along the rocks or swim around the walls of the city while others gawk above. Dubrovnik’s impressive battlements gleam in the early morning light, but by early afternoon, the sea’s clear blue waters beckon you away from the city and its tourist din. If you can stand the crunch, you, too, may find a piece of heaven.
