48 Hours in Croatia
Share This Article:
As well as recently rising to fame for getting a certain hopelessly-optimistic song out of our heads (sorry, England), Croatia has also been a rising star in travel recently, as more people seek the individual adventure away from the beaten path and pre-planned plastic-beach holidays. Then again, it’s not just an appeal to hipster individuality that’s drawing more self-driven adventurers to Croatia, it’s also beautiful national parks, historic cultural sites, great clubbing scenes and Adriatic beaches to outshine Thompson Holidays’
Magaluf Del Sol.
So here I’m going to make a pre-packaged-plan for an off-the-beaten-track holiday for you so we can enjoy irony as well as sunshine – how about that?
Split is Croatia’s second city – think Birmingham but on the Mediterranean, less grey, and far warmer. We’re here for the great beaches, and also the nightlife: Split has a great clubbing scene. Of course, there’s also a UNESCO World Heritage site here, the palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, but… I mean have you seen the beach?
Speaking of the beach, though based in Split for the first 24 hours you don’t actually have to stay there. You could, of course, do Split day and night, there’s plenty of variety, but if you can bear to tear yourself away, you could head over to Love Island.
