Jewels of Croatia, Mostar, and Kotor explores lands of turquoise waters and forested hills that share a rich Roman, Venetian, Habsburg, and Ottoman heritage.  Stunning landscapes reflect the Mediterranean as it was long ago.  For twelve days you explore this magnificent part of the world.  You enjoy natural beauty as well as art, architecture, and cuisine that includes superb sea food from the Adriatic. 

You spend three days in Croatia’s capital, Zagreb, with its medieval Old City and lovely Habsburg architecture.  On the third day, you enjoy a day trip to the glorious lakes and waterfalls of Plitvice Lakes National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site.  In Croatia, ten percent of the country is set aside as protected natural areas, a very high number for a relatively small country.  The sixteen lakes of Plitvice are linked by nearly one hundred tumbling cascades.  This National Park is a haven for wildlife including a great variety of bird species.

Over the next two days, you travel south along the dramatic Adriatic coastline of Istria.  You visit the Roman, Medieval, and Venetian towns of Rovinj, Porec, and Pula.  The Roman Empire and the Republic of Venice dominated this peninsula for centuries.  Throughout most of Istria, you feel their influence.  Many here still speak Italian.  When it was part of the Republic of Venice, Rovinj was one of the most important towns of Istria.  In Pula, you visit the monumental Roman amphitheater and the elegant Temple of Augustus.  Picturesque Porec has a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Euphrasian Basilica, one of the finest intact examples of Byzantine architecture.

You continue down the coast to the ancient ports of Trogir, and Split, with its spectacular Palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian.  After leaving Split,  you view a mosaic of islands dotting this beautiful stretch of the Adriatic. You enjoy dining in Ston, famous for its oysters, and spend four days in Dubrovnik, one of the world’s most beautiful walled cities.  From Dubrovnik, you travel for one day to historic Mostar and its famous bridge, and on a second day to see Kotor with its peaceful squares and graceful old buildings on the stunning Bay.

You will enjoy very much the Esplanade in Zagreb and the Monte Mulini in Rovinj, elegant five star hotels.  In Split you will be at the charming boutique hotel, Judita Palace, and in Dubrovnik, the centrally located five star Pucic Palace.
