What to Expect in Croatia for First Time Travelers?
There is much to see for first time travelers. A visit to the small Rastoke village and the UNESCO world natural heritage site, Plitvice Lakes National Park, is highly recommended to enjoy your family time on weekends. If you get one more free day, take your time by wandering in the Zagreb's Tkalča street and the scenic Trakošćan Castle to find out the fun of living in vibrant urban area and tranquil countryside. Those who would like a 5-day vacation could spend 2 days to explore three or four towns in romantic Istrian peninsula, like Motovun, Rovinj, Opatija and Pula. If you intend to stay for more than one week, plan a 3-day holiday to see the Dalmatian cultural highlights, like Historical Complex of Split with the Palace of Diocletian, Dubrovnik and Trogir old town area, Zadar Sea Organ and St. James Cathedral in Šibenik, and enjoy a 3-day boat tour in Blue Cave, islands of Hvar, Brač, and Korčula. If you are a fan of Game of Thrones, Dubrovnik is a must-go place where you will be taken to the King's Landing.
