Known as the Republic of Croatia, this country in the Balkans is full of life. You can explore it by land (which is what we did) or by sea i.e private yacht or river cruise. Regardless, you’ll never be too far away from a mesmerizing view. The recommended arrival airport for North Americans would be either Dubrovnik, Split or Zagreb.
Coastal Croatia offers a pleasant Mediterranean temperature with the highest number of beautiful sunshine days. Summers here are hot and dry while winter is cool and moist. Inland, temperatures tend to be continental and moderate with lower lows than the coast. Once above 1200 m (3900 ft), the temperatures in the mountain kick in with 55F (13 degree C) during the summer months.
Make sure you review the travel requirements ahead of your departure.
Based on the duration of your vacation, you could do Dubrovnik, Split, Hvar and Zagreb with a few stops on the way. When in Dubrovnik, do spend 2-3 nights and explore the old town, the fort as well as the gorgeous views of the harbor at sunrise and sunset.
