Program putovanja

Welcome to Dubrovnik, the "Pearl of the Adriatic!" Schedule your flight to arrive no later than 4:00pm. Should you arrive early in the day, relax or take a stroll along the beautiful old tow. We will gather this evening at 6:00pm in the hotel lobby for our Welcome Meeting to get better acquainted. Overnight Dubrovnik.
This morning we go for a walking tour of Dubrovnik’s Old Town, which became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979. This city, situated on the Dalmatian coast, became an important Mediterranean sea power from the 13th century onward. Although severely damaged by an earthquake in 1667, Dubrovnik managed to preserve its beautiful Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains. We'll enjoy a guided walking tour of the charming, pedestrian-only Old Town and ascend Mount Srdj—a Napoleonic fort that provided a frontier against the Turks—by cable car for stunning views of the islands dotting the crystal clear Adriatic Sea. Free afternoon. Group welcome dinner.

 
Today we travel to the Republic of Montenegro, a small yet diverse country blessed with a mild climate and natural beauty. We head to the mouth of the beautiful Bay of Kotor, the longest and deepest fjord in southern Europe, to visit the city of Kotor, a dramatically beautiful town wedged between mountain and sea. Within its sturdy walls lie labyrinthine lanes that are home to churches, shops, cafes and other surprises. We'll take a boat ride to Our Lady of the Rocks, one of two islets off the coast of Perast. The Roman Catholic Church is the largest building on the islet. We will stop in Perast, an old, charming coastal town before returning to Dubrovnik.

 
We head to Croatia's second-largest city, the seaside city of Split, which is a great place to see Dalmation life as it's really lived. This exuberant place has just the right balance of tradition and modernity. Life in Split has continued for thousands of years and the city has been under Roman, Venetian, Austrian, French, Italian and Yugoslav control. Sites such as Diocletian's Palace and Mausoleum, one of the world’s most impressive Roman monuments, the Grgur Ninski Statue and the Cathedral and Bell Tower of St. Domnius justify its position as a UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site. Dinner. Overnight Split.

 

Today we head to a town with 2300 years of tradition: Trogir. Trogir is one of the oldest cities on the Adriatic coast and is beautifully situated within medieval walls. It’s fronted by a wide seaside promenade lined with cafes. This tiny town is a center of artistic activities in Croatia. Its rich culture was created under the influence of Greeks, Romans and Venetians. This abundance of Roman and Renaissance architecture, combined with a magnificent cathedral, earned Trogir UNESCO World Heritage status in 1997.


 
This morning we're off to Krka National Park, named after the Krka River that flows through it. The top attraction is the magnificent waterfalls, including the famous Skradinski Buk Falls, which is one of Croatia’s most famous sights. We'll take time to walk the wooden pathways throughout and enjoy this lovely setting. Since we're in wine country, we'll stop for lunch at Bibich Winery, located in the hills near Skradin across the Adriatic from Italy and roughly in line with the wine region of Tuscany. The winemaker learned his craft from his grandfather and is striving to bring the wines of Skradin to international prominence. We'll enjoy a leisurely light lunch of tapas and wine tastings and then head on to Opatija

With a mild climate year-round and frequent sunny skies, Opatija is sometimes referred to as “Croatian Monte Carlo”. In the 19th century, Austro-Hungarian noblemen built spacious villas and spent their winters here. A totally charming seaside town, there is much to see and do here. Your Tour Leader will have suggestions for the day. Consider walking the sea path that offers stunning views and then pop into a local coffee shop or boutique store. Group Dinner. O/N in Opatija.

Our full day excursion to the Istrian Peninsula begins in beautiful Motovun. This small town is one of the best preserved Istrian medieval towns and is the centre of truffle production. We will visit one family that has been in truffle business for decades and of course have a taste of that culinary delicacy. We continue to Rovinj, one of the most photographed cities in Croatia. We stroll through Rovinj’s Old Town and appreciate its unique architectural and cultural heritage. Before traveling back to Opatija, we visit St. Euphemia Basilica, a massive three-nave Baroque church dominating the town from its hilltop location.

We depart this morning for Slovenia - to the Postojna Cave, which is perhaps the best-known cave in the world. We'll enjoy a unique and adventurous ride aboard a small electric train that shepherds us through this amazing underground world and its vast web of galleries, tunnels and magnificent halls. From here, we continue on to Bled, a Slovenian resort town well-known for its immense natural beauty and picturesque mountains, emerald-green lakes, and the longest swimming season of any alpine resort. On a cliff overlooking the lake is the 11th-century Bled Castle and atop an islet in the lake's center is the Pilgrimage Church of the Assumption of Maria with its steep staircase and bell tower. Overnight in Bled

Today we are driving to the charming capital Ljubljana for our walking tour. The old city centre has a unique architectural appearance, particularly due a felicitous combination of Baroque and Art Nouveau architecture and masterful creations by the 20th century architect Jože Plečnik. We continue to Zagreb where we will arrive in the afternoon.

After breakfast we will go for a walk around Zagreb. Find out why people in Zagreb hear Gric cannon each day at noon and discover the hidden courtyards of old town. Enliven the stories from ancient times such as the struggle of Gradec and the Capitol, or the story of the Golden Bull. Feel everyday Zagreb on Dolac market while you sense a scent of more than one hundred kinds of fresh fruits and vegetables. When you are staying in Zagreb, you don't want to miss this opportunity to visit the beautiful and charming small town of Samobor. Walk along its beautiful streets and check out it most popular sites and learn about its history. Rest of the day is free. Farewell dinner in a local restaurant.

Sadly our visit to the Adriatic wonderland of Croatia, Montenegro and Slovenia is over. Schedule your return flight at your convenience. Your Tour Leader will assist in arranging ride-sharing to the airport based on flight departure times.
