Five ideas for guided tours in Croatia
The Croatian capital will charm you from the get-go. It is divided into two parts. The lower part of town offers “art nouveau” architecture around its lush parks. There, you can discover palaces, hotels, theaters and museums. For example, the Museum of Broken Hearts, which exhibits testimonies and memories of love stories from all around the world. The upper part of Zagreb, or Gorjni Grad, is the historical heart. The neighborhood is perched on top of a hill, and the only way to access it is by climbing numerous stairs. If you walk along the lovely paved roads, you will find the old romantic squares.
Located along the coast of the Adriatic sea, Zadar is an ancient roman town with multiple remnants but it also has the same energy as a student town. You can stroll through charming white cobblestoned lanes. Especially Wide street (Kalelarga or Široka ulica), the oldest road in the town, which is still to this day, the main meet-up place for the locals. From the People’s Square (Narodni trg), you can admire the Renaissance influences, with its beautiful balconies and palaces. A must-see along the docks of “Riva” is a very unique piece of art : Sea organ. It is a kind of huge music instrument that is activated by the turmoil of the sea, which enters the tubes making harmonious sounds. The melody is completely random and plays eternally thanks to mother nature.

The region of Plitvice lakes is a UNESCO world heritage site of humanity. The site is located 150 kilometres south of Zagreb. It is a series of sixteen lakes that spill into one another through waterfalls.

One main road goes through the three major towns : Pomena with its bay and its lush islands, Polace with its remnant of the Vth century and Saplunara with its white sanded beach.
