Independent, democratic Croatia welcomes visitors eager to absorb its remarkable history, culture, and unspoiled Dalmatian coastline. As your small group of 24 guests travels from Zagreb to beloved Dubrovnik on a captivating 15-day journey, see why this cherished region lays such a claim on the hearts of all who visit. A tour of Croatia's capital, Zagreb, reveals a gracious city of culture and hospitality, taking in the historic Old Town and the colorful Dolac market. Spend two nights in the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana, a friendly mid-sized city boasting romantic bridges and abundant parkland. Take an excursion to lovely Bled for a castle tour and boat ride around its namesake fairytale lake.

Journey by train into Postojna Cave's depths then discover charming Opatija, once royalty's seaside escape. Fascinating history and a distinctly Mediterranean atmosphere prevail along the alluring Istrian Peninsula, a daylong tour divulges. See Plitvice Lakes National Park's famed string of 16 turquoise-colored lakes, a UNESCO site. Visit the picturesque city of Split, and tour the imposing ruins of 3rd-century Diocletian's Palace, another UNESCO site. Continue on to spend two nights in Venetian-tinged Hvar, situated on Hvar, "queen" of the Dalmatian islands. Your travels conclude with a three-night stay in treasured Dubrovnik, "Pearl of the Adriatic." Take a walking tour of this medieval gem's ancient walls and Old Town, and enjoy a small group highlight as dinner guests in a local family's home.
