Destinations | Croatian Coast & Istrian Islands

Beautiful coastlines dotted with unspoilt towns and fishing villages steeped in history and tradition, combined with the mountains and breathtaking national parks, makes Croatia an area of stunning natural beauty, which is quite unique to this corner of Europe.

One of our new 2016 coach tours takes us to Opatija, a stylish resort which has been welcoming tourists for over 150 years and is one of Croatia’s most popular holiday destinations.

Brijuni Islands
Only 6km from Pula, off the Istrian Coast, the Brujuni Islands National Park comprises of 14 beautiful iislands and islets,  the two main being Mali Brijun and Veli Brijun, all filled with rich history and culture.

During our visit we enjoy sightseeing on a land train which includes a visit to a Safari Park, the habitat of many exotic herbovires including Indian Elephants, the Meditteranen Gardens where you can learn about the valuable Brijuni vegetation, and a Venetian castle, full of archelogical wonders and dating from the 16th century.

The Town of Pula
Situated near the base of the Istrian peninsula and host to a wealth of Roman architecture, the town of Pula, is home to the well preserved Roman ampitheatre, one of the most famous sights in the whole of Croatia.

Pula is a busy commercial city on the sea that has managed to retain a friendly small-town appeal. Although marred with residential and holiday developments, the coast is dotted with fragrant pine groves, seaside cafes and a clutch of good restaurants.

Rovinj and Porec
Heading to the west coast of the Istrian Peninsula, we visit the resort of Rovinj. Originally an Island, the historic town in one of the Meditterranean’s few remaining true fishing ports.

Later, we visit Porec, a lively resort that is also full of cultural sites and streets that were built during Roman times.

Krk Island

With good transport connections and infrastructure, Krk is an easy place to visit.
