Zagreb, Croatia

Arrive into Zagreb and private transfer will bring you to your hotel. Get settled in, relax and then join an expert guide for a tour of this 3,000-year-old city in the afternoon. You’ll be able to walk the cobbled streets, filled with history and an impressive mix of classical Viennese secessionist architecture and Austro-Hungarian heritage. In the center of the ancient Upper Town is the iconic 13th-century St. Mark’s Church with its colorfully tiled roof and the gothic, twin-spired Zagreb Cathedral. In the Lower Town, there are parks, museums, shops, cafes and the main square.

    Day 2 Plitvice Lakes

    Take private transfer this morning to one of the most popular attractions in Croatia, Plitvice Lakes National Park. This remarkable natural wonder and UNESCO-protected site spread over 73,000 acres. It’s filled with forested landscapes, caves, 16 interconnected lakes and nearly 100 waterfalls. You’ll hop on a boat where you can stroll the wooden walkways for a closeup look at the surreal turquoise and emerald waters in this park that truly looks as if it’s a fantasy come to life, before ending with a train ride that provides a panoramic vista.

      Day 3 Split

      Split at night

      In the morning, be ready for a private transfer to glorious Split with its 4th-century Roman Emperor Diocletian’s Palace that covers nearly half of its historic center. You’ll be amazed at the well-preserved buildings from the Roman era that can be discovered along the cobbled streets. But first, you make a stop in Zadar to marvel at the world-famous art installation known as the Sea Organ. Created by artist Nikola Bašić, it’s made up of about three dozen pipes, fitted into the pavement, and makes music by using the power of the waves.

        Day 4 Split

        Split, Croatia

        You will have the morning to explore the beautiful town of Split.
