Home to seven World Heritage sites and a diverse landscape—including pristine Adriatic coastlines—Croatia has something in store for the history buff, luxury-seeker, and every traveler in between. National Geographic Traveler: Croatia leads you through the country's hot-spots and lesser-know, but nonetheless enticing, destinations. You will discover the castles of Central Croatia, beaches and islands along the Dalmatian coast, and mouth-watering food markets and small boutiques along the way.


This guide, written by former Zagreb resident and hiking enthusiast Rudolf Abraham, includes special sidebar features detailing experiences throughout the country to help you delve further into the culture. Learn the Croatian language, or take in a soccer match. Study falconry near Sibenik, or volunteer to help the endangered griffon falcons on the island of Cres. Insider tips, in addition, provided by an array of National Geographic experts—photographers, writers, and grantees who have spent significant time in Croatia—direct you to favorite restaurants, festivals, and other information that only locals know.


Guided walks and drives are always a popular feature in our guides, and in National Geographic Traveler: Croatia, these include strolls through the always-popular Plitvice National Park and the World Heritage city of Dubrovnik. A hike on Velebit and a drive through inland Istria's hill towns are also featured.

Immerse yourself in active, in-country "Experiences" and "Off-the-Beaten-Path Excursions" you won't find anywhere else.


Other new features, such as "Insider Tips" from National Geographic photographers, writers, and experts, and "Not-To-Be-Missed" lists ensure that each visit will be memorable.


The guides' design has been simplified, opened up, and enhanced with easy-to-read tinted sections. Gorgeous color photographs, high-quality maps, and the popular walking and driving tours are still highlights of our crisp, new look.
