A must-stop in Dubrovnik

When visiting Croatia, the steps of perhaps all history lovers lead to Dubrovnik. After all, the ancient fortified historic core, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is breathtaking. Its stone walls, narrow streets and squares reflect the city's rich past as an important trading centre during the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

The main street, Stradun, and historic properties such as the Prince's Court and Rector's Palace are among its biggest attractions. A walk along the ramparts is also magical. Panoramic views of the azure sea, the orange rooftops of the city and the surrounding islands await you there.

Zadar - the heart of Dalmatia

But you shouldn't forget other places in Croatia that are definitely worth a visit. One of them is Zadar. The historic port city in Dalmatia offers its visitors a combination of rich cultural heritage and modern life.

Among the most interesting attractions is the sea mound known as "Morske orgulje" or Sea Organ. This unique musical instrument made of rocks and shells that create holes in the wall of the promenade allows the waves to create pleasant sounds. A walk along the seafront is a real treat when listening to a natural concert.

Another unique feature of Zadar is the famous "Salute to the Sun". This is an art installation consisting of large glass panels that react to sunlight and create a hypnotizing light show. During the evening hours, you can immerse yourself in a magical atmosphere as the coastline is transformed into a colourful palette of light.

In addition, Zadar is home to many monuments, such as the Romanesque Church of Saint Donatus, which is considered one of the most beautiful of its kind. The fortified gate of Porta Terraferma is also an interesting sight.

For those who are truly captivated by Zadar, we offer an exclusive sale of a 4 bedroom apartment in a newly built development project. This luxurious property with a total area of 240 m2 is located on the second floor of the building and includes three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a spacious dressing room and an open living area with kitchen and dining room, which leads to a terrace with spectacular sea views.

Lukoran as "Zadar in small"

If you want to enjoy a peaceful stay away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist centres, your destination should be the village of Lukoran on the island of Ugljan. This idyllic village is surrounded by beautiful nature, green olive groves, vineyards and blue sea. For lovers of nature and active relaxation, Lukoran is an ideal location to explore the surrounding beaches, cliffs and breathtaking views of the coast. The local harbour brings a sense of authenticity and is an important place for fishermen who return daily with a fresh catch. The Church of St Peter and Paul, an important monument of the village, should not be missed.

One of the greatest advantages of Lukoran is its peaceful atmosphere and the hospitality of the locals. Here you can enjoy traditional Croatian cuisine and excellent local wine, which give this place its unique character. At the same time, Lukoran is close enough to Zadar to allow you to explore the other sights of this stunning region.

The most beautiful sunsets are over Privlaka

Among the lesser-known locations is Privlaka, located in northern Dalmatia, also near Zadar. This pleasant seaside town attracts visitors especially with its beautiful landscape and peaceful atmosphere. The coast is surrounded by azure sea and there are several beaches suitable for sunbathing, swimming and water sports. They are often covered with fine sand, making them ideal for families with children.

The historic city centre is also worth exploring, where you can find monuments such as the 12th-century St. Vid Church. Privlaka is also a great base for exploring the surrounding natural beauty. The Kornati and Krka National Parks are nearby and offer breathtaking scenery.

Privlaka is famous for its stunning sunsets, which can be admired from the promenade or from one of the cosy restaurants along the coast.
