Honeymoons in Croatia
Your honeymoon in Croatia will reveal to you a country composed of historic cities, a lively cultural life and picturesque landscapes. There are fascinating Medieval and Roman remains to be explored, alongside modern cafés, restaurants and boutiques in the cities.
The capital, Zagreb, has countless museums, including the Museum Mimara, which is one of the best art galleries in Europe. The most impressive sight in the city is undoubtedly the neo-gothic St Stephen's Cathedral, which incorporates some elements of the original Medieval structure.
Founded over 13 centuries ago, Dubrovnik is enclosed by intact city walls which are arguably the finest in the world. The highlight of the city is undoubtedly a visit to the old town. Stari Grad features cobbled streets, marble-paved squares, musems, churches, palaces and convents all built with light-coloured stone. From Dubrovnik it is a short ferry trip to Lokrum Island, a beautiful national park.
Split, on the Adriatic coast, is an exuberant city with much to see and do. The massive Diocletian Palace is one of the finest Roman ruins in the world.
Your honeymoon in Croatia will offer you the opportunity to discover the work of Croatia's best-known sculptor, Ivan Mestrovic, a national hero. He has designed some of the country's most imposing buildings, such as the Croatian History Museum in Zagreb, and there is a gallery dedicated to his works in Split.
For a relaxed time in picturesque surroundings, head to the town of Rovinj in the northwest of the country. Surrounded by wooded hills, Rovinj has an archipelago of 13 verdant islands and its excellent aquarium is over a century old. The town is dominated by its Baroque cathedral.
Croatia is facing the future confident that the many attractions of the country will seduce visitors far and wide. It is certainly an unforgettable place to spend your honeymoon.
