Cruises in Croatia

Edit This

Croatia is a country rich in history and culture, and over the last few years it has become a popular stop for cruise ships. There are now more than 300 Croatia cruises available, offering a variety of activities in its 2 most popular port cities, Dubrovnik and Split.

Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik, located in southern Croatia, sits at the edge of the Adriatic Sea. Its beaches, cliffs and forests have created a beautifully unique landscape, dotted with impressive Renaissance architecture and historic landmarks. The citizens of Dubrovnik have worked hard to rebuild parts of the city and make it the beautiful city it is today–there is no sign of the damage sustained in the attack by the Serbs and Montenegrins less than 20 years ago.

One of the most popular sights is the old walled city of Dubrovnik, which has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A walk along the famous main street, the Stradun, provides breathtaking views of the city. In the walled city you will find Onofrio's Fountain, built in the 15th century to supply drinking water to the city. It also supplied water to the city after the attack in 1991. Today visitors still enjoy water from one of the 16 spouts around the fountain.

Another popular sight in Dubrovnik is the Rectors' Palace, former home the city's Republic government. Today, the Palace is a museum, showcasing paintings and historical exhibits designed to portray how the city's ruling class used to live.

Split

Located on a small peninsula in the Adriatic Sea, Split is Croatia's second-largest city. Known for its beaches, museums and historic monuments, there is plenty to do while in port. Diocletian's Palace is one of the most famous sights in Croatia. Built by the Roman emperor Diocletian as a palace and military camp, today it has spread out to become a small town full of shops and squares. The site of Diocletian's former mausoleum is now the famous St. Dominius' Cathedral.

Mestrovic's Gallery houses the largest collection of sculptor Ivan Mestrovic's works. The Gallery, comprised of a villa and garden, contain the artist's works in wood, marble, stone and bronze, as well as oil paintings and drawings.

Other popular sights in Split include the Archaeological Museum, the stunning view of the Adriatic from the top of Mount Marjan and shopping on Marmontova Ulica.
