Join Istria by the costal road

Karlobag, Croatia

You will leave Zadar with a heavy heart, but do not worry, you will discover new wonders ! The road to Opatija is a beautiful road. Once you are out of Zadar, stop near Maslenica bridge to admire the incredible scenery. Throughout this beautiful winding road you can stop in small villages and refresh with a dip in the sea. As the saying goes: the important is not the destination but the journey! An incredible moment of freedom!

Discover Istria

Rovinj Croatia

White, grey and red, Istria is a land whose diversity is almost unique in the Mediterranean. This heart-shaped piece of land deeply immersed into the blue waters of the Adriatic, is a secluded garden of nature and extraordinary beauty. So do not hesitate – enter this hidden garden of nature and meet its wonderful, intact landscape. As your lungs fill with sharp scents of the aromatic plants or sleepy stone pines and sweet Spanish broom, you will become aware of the perfect harmony of the Mediterranean and middle Europe.

Plan your stay in Croatia

Getting there :

Many airlines from European capitals fly to Zagreb, Pula, Dubrovnik. Renting a car is the best way to travel throughout Croatia.


Although the train is  a very nice means of transport, it is less developed than in other European countries. If you stay in Zagreb, there is no need to rent a car, but it would be a shame to go to such a beautiful country without visiting other places. Croatia is a wonderful country for road trips and rental cars are much cheaper than in any other European countries.

Where to stay?

Moving around :

The country is not so big and yet it offers a wide variety of landscapes. It would be a shame to be limited to a city or a destination.


Plan your trip in advance or follow your desires. You can  start your journey in Zagreb and explore the lakes of Plitvice, Zadar, Dubrovnik, Split, Opatija and take your plane back from the airport of Pula or Dubrovnik.


Anyway, travelling by car is the most comfortable way to enjoy your trip.


When to go in Zagreb and Croatia?

The best time to visit Croatia is between April and October. You have 7 beautiful months to discover this wonderful country and enjoy its climate. That being said, Zagreb is a very romantic city in autumn and  in winter with great winter events such as a very large and beautiful Christmas market. Few people know it, but you can also ski in Zagreb in December, January and February! In short, Croatia is a country made for holidays throughout the year.
