About the Holiday

Day 1 Zagreb(D):
Individual arrival in Zagreb, transfer to the hotel (driving time 20 to 45 min). Welcome drink and group get together. Acquaint yourself with your tour manager and others over a plate of trukli, a local specialty in the Zagreb area.

Day 2 Zagreb Opatija (B, D):
After breakfast, enjoy a walking tour of Zagreb with an English speaking guide. In the fortified, medieval Upper Town, you will visit St. Mark's church, with its multicolour tiled roof, Parliament, the government palace, and many fine old buildings. After the sightseeing we proceed to Opatija (driving time 2:30h), situated on the picturesque Kvarner Bay, which used to be the favourite spa resort of the Habsburgs and the European aristocracy including famous personalities such as Mahler, Chekhov and Isadora Duncan. Dinner and overnight in Opatija.

Day 3 Istria Excursion (B, T):
Today it's time to get to know the Istrian peninsula and visit the 2000 year old roman Colosseum located in Pula. Afterwards we will relax in Rovinj, perhaps the most beautiful city in Istria and the inspiration of many artists. Time at leisure in Rovinj and departure towards Livade for a sample of one the Istrian tastiest treasures, the truffle. Dinner and overnight in Opatija. (Departure at 9:00h, return around 18:00h)

Day 4 Opatija - Plitvice Lakes (B,D):
The most beautiful and oldest national park in Croatia under UNESCO protection - consisted of 16 lakes connected by magnificent waterfalls. The park is located in Lika mountain region and visited mostly on foot - however the entrance includes a boat ride across the Emerald Green Lake "Kozjak" and a train ride back to the main entrance. The visit of the park grounds takes approximately 3 hours. Dinner at the hotel restaurant and overnight in Plitvice area. Driving time approximately 3:00h.

Day 5 Plitvice Lakes - sibenik - Split (B, T):
After breakfast at the hotel, we drive down from the mountain region of Lika via the coast towards the city of Sibenik. The historic town of Sibenik is rich in cultural and historical monuments. The most representative among them is the famous Cathedral of Sibenik (St. Jacobs), one of the most original architectural projects of the late Middle Ages, primarily linked to the local master Juraj Matejev Dalmatinac (George of Dalmatia). From Sibenik we continue to the Bibich Winery for a gourmet experience that is more than a simple wine tasting. The winery burnt to the ground during the war is now producing rewarded wines and exporting 80 percent of their production to USA & Scandinavia. We will taste the dalmatian Debit white wine and Cuvee of Shiraz & Merlot, accompanied with delicious Croatian style Tapas. Departure towards Split for overnight. Total driving time 4 to 5h.

Day 6 Split and Trogir Sightseeing (B, L):
Today's Split is the handiwork of seventeen centuries of men and women building and remodelling, adding, tearing down and touching up, so that 18th century houses intersect with ancient Roman walls and fourth century chambers house twentieth century apartments. At the core of this sprawling cityscape is the palace the Emperor Diocletian built for his golden years at the turn of the fourth century. Today's lunch will be the traditional Dalmatian dish - Pasticada which we will taste at the Tragos restaurant in Trogir. The town of Trogir, a UNESCO site, has a fascinating 2300 years of continuous urban tradition. Its rich culture was created under the influence of old Greeks, Romans, and Venetians. Trogir has a high concentration of palaces, churches, and towers, as well as fortresses on a small island. Sometimes referred to as the floating museum town.

Day 7 Split - Ston - Dubrovnik (B, T, D):
On our way to Dubrovnik we will stop near the town of Ston, where we visit a local winery and taste the famous "Plavac Mali" wine, a very close relative to the Zinfandel. In this winery the traditional wine making business has been passed on for generations, offering a unique story everyone wants to hear. The wine tasting includes a wine presentation on all the specifics of the wine-making process, wine tasting and snack. Arrival in Dubrovnik and overnight. Driving time 5 hours.

Day 8 Duborvnik (B):
Completed in the thirteen century, the old city Dubrovnik has remained basically unchanged since. Its medieval ramparts encircle the city which pedestrians can enter through one of two gates - either way, they cross a stone bridge under the watchful gaze of the city's patron Saint Blaise (Vlaho), to find themselves joining the evening promenade down the broad, stone-paved avenue known as Stradun. After the sightseeing free time to explore the city on your own. Overnight in Dubrovnik.

Zagreb is the capital and the largest city of Croatia.

The city was founded in the Middle Ages as two separate but neighboring settlements, Kaptol and Gradec, which today make up Gornji Grad (Upper Town). Kaptol was a religious center, built around the cathedral, while Gradec was the home to craftsmen and merchants who supplied the needs of the Kaptol clergy. Although relations between the two were strained, outsiders saw them as a single town, which they referred to as Zagreb (meaning �behind the hill�). In 1557, the settlement became Croatia�s capital, with the parliament meeting alternately in Gradec and Kaptol. It was not until 1850 that the two parts were united to become the city of Zagreb.

The climate of Zagreb is continental, with four separate seasons. Summers are hot and dry, and winters are cold. Snowfall is common in the winter months, from December to March, and rain and fog are common in fall (October to December).

The city centre lies in two parts: Gornji Grad (Upper Town) and Donji Grad (Lower Town) which meets at Trg Bana Jelacica, the main square. Picturesque Gornji Grad is made up of higgledy-piggledy cobbled streets and buildings dating from medieval times up to the 19th century. Donji Grad follows a geometrical grid-plan, with a series of green squares rimmed by Austro-Hungarian buildings erected from the late-19th century onwards.

Zagreb nightlife is primarily student-orientated, with the highest concentration of small bars and cafes lining the pretty street of Tkalciceva in Gornji Grad.
