Croatia is bursting with alluring destinations, beautiful islands, spectacular raw natural beauty, beaches, great nightlife, and wonderful people. Moreover, Game of Thrones did an abundance of filming here! Croatia’s mainland Adriatic coastline is over 1,000 miles long. Its islands emcompass another 2,500 miles. It is among the most beautiful coastlines in the Mediterranean.

I just visited Split and Dubrovnik for the first time and it was definitely worth the trip. I plan to go back to both again, and then see more of Croatia. Indeed, I must make a point of visiting the islands, especially Hvar. I heard that it is unquestionably a beautiful place.

Is Split or Dubrovnik better?

Split and Dubrovnik are absolutely worth a visit. Split is centrally located, has a terrific nightlife and is perfect for taking day trips. Dubrovnik’s historic Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It positively lives up to its moniker, Pearl of the Adriatic. In fact, it is one of the most beautiful walled cities in the world. Both destinations are great for outdoor activities, history, and culture. But, if you are looking for beaches on your vacation, Dubrovnik’s beaches are better.

In my opinion, the best time to visit Croatia is during the summer months. The is weather is warm with lots of sunshine, ideal for swimming, boating, watersports and sightseeing.
