The capital city of Croatia, Zagreb, will soon be celebrating its millennial anniversary. It is a typical Central European town comfortable, full of history, charming coffee places, fine restaurants and green parks. In Zagreb there are 30 museums, 20 theatres, 45 galleries and 13 art collections. There are also almost a million hospitable inhabitants that give this city a truly lively and fun atmosphere. This is even more evident during special events like Zagreb Film festival, European Theatre Night, a magical Advent or be active during Zagreb Marathon or Zagreb night run.
Roman Empire was enormous and today Croatia was a big part of it. While travelling through Croatia you can still see many remains under the water if diving to sunken Roman galleons. Or above water – the Roman amphitheater in Pula is the only one with all 3 Roman architectural orders entirely preserved and one of the 6 largest Roman arenas in the world. Just imagine experiencing a concert inside with the perfect “Roman acoustic”.
King’s Landing, Red Keep Gardens, Essos – in Croatia they are closer than you might think… You can see these sights and get first hand stories about the filming, Danny and John Snow (*). And did you know that Mamma Mia 2 wasn’t shot in Greece but on the island of Vis? But that’s far from it. Even way back, Lord Byron has said that Dubrovnik is “The Pearl of the Adriatic”, Alfred Hitchcock confirmed that “Zadar has the most beautiful sunset in the world” and Jules Verne simply set his entire novel Mathias Sandorf in Croatian Pazin.
The croatian coast is straight from the paradise and the charming coastal towns of Croatia add a lot to this charm. The towns date back centuries and have experienced all the turbulent European history from ancient times on. A walk through is like a walk through history. No wonder many are also in the UNESCO world heritage sites list.

There are some fascinating historical sites, also from the more modern times. Croatia was part of the ex-Yugoslavia – the only country located on both sides of the iron curtain. Its passport was for a while the best passport in the world and its leader – Tito is a person full of controversies. Be as it is there is definitely no better place to learn about this recent past then from the people who lived it. We can arrange you a Tito Tour and an all in all Yugoslavian experience.
