There are many wonderful places to see in Croatia, and luxury yacht charters are a fantastic way to see more than one of them over the course of your holiday. Some of the best and most unmissable places to see in Croatia include:

Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik is one of the most characterful cities in the world, and the air is also thick with history. With its distinctive architectural style and a number of historic buildings and museums, the city still retains much of its medieval character. It is also a wonderfully scenic city, and has inspired generations of artists. It features in the popular TV show Game of Thrones as the great fictional city of King’s Landing.

Stari Grad
Like Dubrovnik, Stari Grad is heavy with history. In fact, it is one of the oldest towns to be found anywhere in Europe. The streets are often visibly historic and a pleasure to simply wander around. Architectural charms include the monastery and the clock tower, and there are plenty of traditional craft shops and eateries to enjoy.

Vis
Vis is home to some truly unique charms. Some of Croatia’s best wineries – a claim not to be sniffed at – can be found there, as well as some utterly spectacular natural scenery. However, this island also has a strong military past. In stark contrast to the other attractions (but no less fascinating) are the nuclear bunkers and other such structures scattered among the island’s pretty hills.
