Lovers of luxury flock here for walks through medieval towns and fairytale forests, for a sumptuous getaway of wine and truffles.

Croatia is fast becoming Europe’s darling haven and it’s no wonder why. The café culture and galleries of Zagreb seem almost endless, and the churches, forts and old towns of the countryside are in no short supply. To pick out Diocletian’s Palace in Split or the Roman fort of Zadar would be unfair, and to highlight the beauty of the Dalmatian islands would be leaving so much out.  Plitvice Lakes National Park is yet another draw card to the place, with its collection of blue-green lakes strung together like pearls.
