Jun 10, Sunday
Dubrovnik, Croatia »   10 pm
 
Though it has only recently re-emerged as an independent nation, Croatia is by no means a new country. There were settlements along the Dalmatian Coast before recorded time. When Slavic people migrated here in the 6th century, they converted to Catholicism and adopted the local Latin alphabet. The region eventually became part of the powerful Kingdom of Croatia. Medieval Dubrovnik, formerly the Republic of Ragusa, was one of several walled cities established in the 7th century to guard the coastal approaches. Its fortification was completed in the 13th century and has remained relatively unchanged. The city walls are in excellent condition and today prevent invasion by automobiles. Within the walls, the lovely sleek lines of Venetian-style buildings complement a wealth of ancient stone architecture. Nearby islands feature beautiful beaches as well as intriguing ancient ruins.

Hvar, Croatia » 9 am 11 pm
 
This small island located in the center of the Mediterranean is a nature-lover’s delight. The arrival of Croatians to Hvar in the Middle Ages turned this temperate island into the center of Croatian arts and literature, thus ensuing the production of extraordinary works in sculpture, paintings and music. Greeks founded their first colony here in 358 BC, and since then Hvar has survived frequent changes of occupancy throughout the Middle Ages and into modern times. The impact of the long period of Venetian rule is most evident in the town of Hvar, where there are numerous reminders of the glorious Renaissance Movement. Today, Hvar offers stretches of beaches that melt into the azure waters of the Mediterranean—a paradise to tourists and locals alike. Year round, the sun shines brightly on the splendid island of Hvar, making its limestone towns sparkle amid the fertile green hills, rocky terrain, and the surrounding sea of clear cobalt blue. Situated between the islands of Brač, Vis and Korcula, Hvar is the longest island in the Adriatic Sea, and it boasts one of the most beautiful landscapes nature has created. The climate is unmatched, and the clear, fresh air will refresh your soul. The magic of Hvar is eternal, its beauty is unforgettable.
 
Jun 13, Wednesday
Vis, Croatia » 9 am 7 pm
 

Farthest from the mainland and until 1989 a military base for the Yugoslav National Army, the tiny isle of Vis has mostly escaped modern development, making it an appealing place to find a bit of Mediterranean authenticity. Fishing and wine are longstanding traditions, still alive and well in maritime villages, homey cafes and vineyard expanses. While relatively distant from its own Croatian mainland, Vis is culturally close to Venice, as Vis was once under the rule of the Republic of Venice. This rich history can be seen in the island’s architecture, humble and rustic with a Venetian flair. For the nature lover, there is much to make the heart flutter, from pretty pebble beaches and rugged shoreline to secluded coves and the ever-present blue waters of the Adriatic.

 
Jun 14, Thursday
Trogir, Croatia » 9 am 10 pm
 

In a region where the words "Baroque," "medieval" and "Renaissance" - not to mention "beautiful" and "charming" - describe virtually every sight, one might think it would be difficult to find any one town that is a standout. Yet Trogir, Croatia, may just be that place. Located on a small island between the Croatian mainland and the island of Ciovo, the city of Trogir has a history that reaches back to the 3rd century BC, when it was founded by the Greeks. Later influenced by the Romans and Venetians, Trogir is nothing short of an open-air museum, sprinkled liberally with churches, palaces, towers and fortifications. Its Romanesque-Gothic quarter is one of the best-preserved not only in the Adriatic, but in all of Central Europe. UNESCO has recognized Trogir as the special place that it is, designating the historic center as a World Heritage Site.

 
Jun 15, Friday
Sibenik, Croatia » 9 am 7 pm
 

Sibenik is a unique place. First, unlike many other cities on the Adriatic coast, Sibenik was founded by Croats and not by Romans, producing an interesting regional story and a collection of remarkable architecture. One example is Sibenik’s central church, the Cathedral of St. James, built completely in stone between 1431 and 1536 and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000. Second, Sibenik might be compared to Stockholm, as like the Swedish capital, the city unfolds over an archipelago. Yet Sibenik’s Mediterranean climate and volleyed possession among Venice, Byzantium, Hungary and Bosnia give it a sun-glow warmth and distinct heritage. Then there is Sibenik’s appearance. The city rises up in layers from the harbor, fanning out from St. Anne’s Fortress and into a maze of narrow alleys and squares. It’s all quite charming, a medieval gift to unwrap and discover. If the attractions—and attractiveness—of the town center are not enough, then visit one of the area’s two national parks, Kornati, an archipelago of about 150 small islands, and Krka, famous for waterfalls and archaeological treasures.

 
Jun 16, Saturday
Rovinj, Croatia » 9 am 10 pm
 

Tucked up under the arm of the Adriatic where Croatia meets Italy, Rovinj reflects a cross-section of cultures, not just of neighboring Italy but also of Greece, Austria and the Slavic nations. Empires have been competing over this wooded and strategically located region for centuries, contributing to Croatia’s rich tapestry of history along the way. The resulting complex and vibrant fabric, ever-evolving as time weaves, is yours to discover with your visit. One of the most striking of Rovinj’s buildings is the Church of St. Euphemia, with its bell tower rising above the city. Around every corner seems a grand gesture of architecture or quaint cafe. If you aren’t careful, you may begin to think you are wandering the cobbled lanes of Venice, as Rovinj’s colorful facades and charming piazzas are not far from the once-governing canal city, just two hours away by ferry across the gulf.
