One of Europe's most popular mediterranean destinations, Croatia's pristine beaches, ancient coastal towns and national parks make for an invigorating holiday. Head south to Dubrovnik, a beautiful walled city on the Dalmatian coast famous for its narrow streets and quaint cafes. After a day spent getting lost in Dubrovnik, pause to admire the views of the azure waters beyond its walls. Slightly north of Dubrovnik is Split, Croatia's second largest city that has a charm of its own. At the heart of the city is Diocletan Palace. Named after Roman emperor Diocletian, the palace is a great place to learn about the city's history whilst enjoying the many cafes and shops it offers.
