Croatia & Istanbul Combo

The core of Zagreb consists of the Gornji Grad (Upper Town) as well as Donji Grad (Lower Town). The Upper Town is home to the well-preserved medieval city; known as Gradec and Kaptol, while the residential area covers the southern slopes of the Medvednica Mountains. Since the 1950s the city has grown appreciably to the south of the Sava River; as well as the main industrial area is in the southeast.

The Plitvice Lakes are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the national park that encloses them is the oldest in Southeast Europe. It is the natural beauty of the 16 green and turquoise lakes; linked by waterfalls and also surrounded by forests, that attracts thousands of visitors every year. Wooden walkways meander over, around and across the magical watery setting that was formed by mineral deposits in the water creating travertine barriers within the constantly changing limestone landscape.

The pretty city of Split has a rich history.  Diocletian’s Palace still stands in the very heart of the old part of Split; which charms visitors with its cobbled streets and classical architecture. The greater Split area is famous for its lush vegetation and green areas; particularly Marjan Hill on the west of the peninsula with its ancient indigenous forest. The city makes an ideal base from which to explore the islands, beauty spots, and historic villages in central Dalmatia.

Known for its fine accommodation, excellent cuisine, beautiful surroundings and recreational opportunities. George Bernard Shaw is quoted as describing Dubrovnik as ‘heaven on earth’. Over the last few years, the establishment of a stable and prosperous peace in Croatia has ensured Dubrovnik is a booming travel destination once more.

The old town, dating from the 7th century, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enclosed by city walls built in the 13th century, the buildings represent a cross-section of medieval architectural styles and remain well preserved. Onofrio’s Fountain, situated just inside the main entrance to the old city at Pile Gate, is one of Dubrovnik’s most famous landmarks and a popular meeting place.

The centre of the old town is the Stradun; its main street, which was originally a channel separating an island from the mainland, and was filled in to join two towns into the merged city of Dubrovnik. There are numerous churches, monasteries and museums to explore; the old town boasts plenty of restaurants, bars and shops; and the coastal belt is awash with pretty marinas, coves and promenades. Most of the hotels and the best beaches are northwest of the old town; at Lapad; or in Ploce to the northeast.

Istanbul is the only city in the world reaching across two continents; with its old city in Europe and modern Istanbul situated in Asia, separated by the Bosphorus Strait.

Its fascinating history has bequeathed the city a vivid inheritance of Byzantine ruins, splendid palaces, ancient mosques as well as churches; hamams (bath-houses) as well as exotic bazaars. Modern Istanbul also exudes a thriving nightlife scene with trendy bars and nightclubs; alongside western boutiques, office blocks, as well as elegant suburbs.
