Culture

Marvel at over 3000 years of history. Climb the protective medieval city walls. Stay in the palace of a Roman Emperor. Catch a gig in the most well-preserved amphitheatre in the world. Party the night away in a fortress. Have a cooking class in an abandoned town. Go to the opera in a neo-baroque masterpiece. Croatia’s rich history and culture set the scene for truly unique experiences.

Croatia has a long and varied past, resulting in a rich history and vibrant culture. Croatia is a blend of East meets West. Of Roman and Venetian, Ottoman, Hungarian and Austrian influences. Monuments, landmarks and cities are steeped in culture, with remarkable examples of urban continuity, preserved architecture and colourful stories. Witness grand Austro-Hungarian buildings in Croatia’s capital, Zagreb. Enjoy Italian Mediterranean chic in Istria’s coastal towns and explore Roman historical sites throughout the country.
