Travelling through time

A trip to Croatia does not only mean geographical travel, but it also takes you back through time, as you discover centuries-old traditions and the remnants of the civilisations that have passed through and taken root in this remarkable land.

Built at the heart of the

Roman Empire, 

the Diocletian Palace of Split is a perfect example of the evolution of late classical architecture, with its shapes and embellishments exemplifying not just the development of early Christian art, but also the prelude to the Byzantine and early medieval architectural styles. 

 

  • The history of Diocletian’s Palace dates back to 305 AD

Staying indoors is all well and good, but Croatian culture likes to take things outside! The Dubrovnik Summer Festival is Croatia’s oldest cultural festival and a spectacular event sure to remain imprinted on your memory for years to come. It not only showcasestheatre, ballet, opera and the world’s leading classical orchestras, but all of this against the perfect backdrop of its magnificent city walls!

And there’s something for fans of folklore too in the form of Croatia’s most popular legacy. Traditional lace has been handed down through the generations in countryside towns, such as on the island of Pag and in the town of Lepoglava in northern Croatia. Lepoglava also keeps this legacy alive with a fantastic annual festival dedicated to the art.
