Zagreb, Croatia

Places of Interest

Zagreb

The capital of the Republic of Croatia is the country’s political, economic, commercial, cultural, sports and diplomatic center. Easily accessible due to its international airport and its rail and road links, providing a range of hotel accommodations, congress halls and exceptionally attractive historic venues for meeting and receptions. Zagreb plays host to numerous international gatherings of all shapes and sizes every year.

Opatija

A small fishing village with a Benedictine Abbey, after which the town was named (abbey = opatija). Visitors will be delighted by the sumptuous beauty of the buildings and by parks providing home to plants from all over the world.

Split

Split’s history dates back a little less than 1,700 years. This is probably why this site has been on the UNESCO list of world heritage since 1979, being regarded as containing some of the best preserved examples of imperial palace architecture from Antiquity. Split is the largest town in Dalmatia and its cultural, economic and tourist center, with six museums, three picture galleries and a theater.

Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is the synonym for Croatia, the city on the UNESCO list of world heritage. Standing on the massive walls that embrace the entire city, one can enjoy a truly singular view of the town which is a tourist attraction of prime importance and fully accessible to visitors. Each house in the Old Town is a historic monument, but highlights include the main street, known as Stradun, the Sponza Palace, the Pillar of Orlando, the Ducal Palace, and the Baroque church of St. Blasius, the patron saint of Dubrovnik.

National Parks

Regarded by many as Europe’s most beautiful garden, Croatia is a natural haven, through the beauty of its landscapes, ecological awareness and eight national parks: the Brijuni Islands, Kornati, Krka, Mljet, Paklenica, The Plitvice Lakes, Risnjak, and Northern Velebit.

UNESCO list of World Heritage

We have opted to name only seven monuments: Diocletian’s Palace in Split, the cities of Dubrovnik and Trogir, St. Euphrasius’ Basilica in Porec, St. Jacob’s Cathedral in Šibenik, Plitvice Lakes and the Starigrad Range on the island of Hvar.
