4 Star Hotels in Croatia: The most important things at a glance
Croatian Islands: A piece of paradise
Almost all holiday dreams come true on the islands off the coast, and on many of them Croatia’s 4-star hotels with exclusive comfort contribute their part. On Rab in the Kvarner Bay, beach holidaymakers are in the right place. On the long, mostly flat sandy beaches of the mountainous, wooded island, families with children can splash around carefree, for example on the beach Paradiso near Lopar. The car-free island of Lopud offers pure relaxation: the northwest of the green island, which is characterised by subtropical vegetation, is lined with steep cliffs and rocky coasts, while the fine white sandy beach of Sunj Bay stretches along the east coast. The party crowd, on the other hand, meets all summer on Murter, where one festival follows the next. Nevertheless, there are still unspoilt, quiet bathing bays with often pebbly, but also sandy and gently sloping beaches, such as the main beach in Slanica Bay or the white-sand beach of Podvrske. Off the southern Dalmatian mainland, the Adriatic island of Korcula with its countless bays, lively and quiet beaches and around 40 islands off the coast offers a holiday paradise.
Croatian coastal towns: holiday between town and beach
If you want to combine bathing fun with cultural enjoyment on the Adriatic, you can choose from the range of 4-star hotels in Croatia’s old seaport towns facing the sea and modern beach resorts. With a UNESCO World Heritage Site and vibrant nightlife, Split welcomes visitors to the southern Croatian coast. After a stroll through the historic centre and Diocletian’s Palace, you can sunbathe on the beaches in Marjan Park before heading to the bars and clubs in the old town and on the waterfront or the party mile on Barvice Beach. Close to Split, the coastal town of Trogir with its beach life and World Heritage Site also attracts visitors; during the day you can relax on the beaches of Medena or Pantan, and in the evening you can stroll through the romantic alleys of the historic city centre. For island vacationers, Korcula is recommended on the island of the same name: the old town with its medieval buildings and the famous St. Mark’s Cathedral is located directly on the sea.
Croatian national parks: Diverse nature
Nature lovers are fascinated by the original landscapes of the eight national parks and eleven nature parks in Croatia, including the Krka National Park with its waterfalls, the countless Kornati Islands, the Mljet National Park, which is almost entirely made up of forests, or the mountain world of the Paklenica National Park. Once you have visited the turquoise Plitvice Lakes, surrounded by lush vegetation, you will never forget the unique magic of this landscape formed by karst and water: Waterfalls connect the terraced lakes, where once the adventures of Winnetou and Old Shatterhand were filmed.
