Book holidays to the Dubrovnik area of Croatia and arrive at a destination named as the "jewel of the Adriatic". Filled with remarkable history Dubrovnik holidays can be a wonderful blend of relaxing by the beach and exploring the sights.
Dubrovnik's old town was built in the 13th century and remains virtually untouched by tourism and 20th century development giving a true idea of what Croatia used to be like.

The country's excellent bus network is far-reaching and reasonably priced. Trains are cheaper and more comfortable than the bus, but also slower except for the new high-speed train between Zagreb and Split.
All the usual car rental chains are represented in Zagreb, Split, Dubrovnik and most Istrian towns. Drive on the right side of the road. The spectacular Adriatic highway from Italy to Albania runs along the steep slopes of Croatia's coastal range, and is one of the most exciting drives in the world.
If you can get where you're going by ferry, then do it - cruising among the islands of the Adriatic certainly beats sitting on a bus, no matter how cheap or fast it is. Jadrolinija coastal ferries ply the waters between Dubrovnik and Rijeka, stopping at Split and Korcula.
