“Croatia never fails to wow intrepid explorers thanks to the plethora of attractions and landmarks it offers.” This is how the latest in a series of articles on Croatia’s tourism offer starts. It has been published by Mirror on its website, listing the best things to see in Croatia.

“We are talking historic old towns, breathtaking islands with a vibrant nightlife, epic national parks filled with lakes and waterfalls, and plenty of jaw-dropping natural highlights. Cities such as Dubrovnik and Split have enjoyed a surge of popularity after serving as Game of Thrones filming locations, shining a spotlight on just what this spectacular country has to offer,” writes Mirror.

Mirror decided to select seven of the best thing that tourists should not miss when they come to Croatia.

Dubrovnik’s Old Town
Of course, it is unavoidable that Dubrovnik would be featured on this list, with a special emphasis on its UNESCO World Heritage Site status and the fact that the Games of Thrones TV series was filmed there. The only downside – it can get pretty overcrowded when cruise ships dock in the area.

Plitvice Lakes
The Plitvice Lakes National Park is also a regular feature of lists such as this. “Plitvice Lakes national park boasts terraced lakes linked together by waterfalls, making for quite the picture-perfect setting from the turquoise waters to the lush green landscapes. There are plenty of walkways and hiking trails for those who want to go exploring in search of highlights such as the Veliki Slap, a 78m high waterfall,” writes Mirror.

The only bad news for travellers? You cannot swim in the lakes.

Krka National Park
Another national park which is regularly presented in lists such as the Mirror’s is the Krka National Park, with its waterfalls and dense greenery. “You can actually swim in the waters right by the falls and there’s very much a relaxed atmosphere if you want to stop off and soak up the sun. For those who want a bit more adventure, there are wooden walkways throughout the park with trails leading you through some of the prettiest spots. Oh, and history fans will want to visit the Krka Monastery, built above some ancient Roman catacombs,” writes Mirror.

Hvar has been well-known for years as a party town, and in recent years it has become especially popular by the Made in Chelsea reality TV show broadcast on British television. “By day, the luxurious hotels and the picturesque harbour make for a pretty backdrop as you soak up the sunshine. By night, the marina comes alive with plenty of restaurants and bars where you’ll find revellers until the early hours of the morning,” writes Mirror.

Other destinations featured in the article are Split, Zagreb and the Blue Cave on the island of Biševo. The whole list of the best things to see in Croatia can be found here.
