Thanks to HBO’s series Game of Thrones, Dubrovnik may be the most famous city on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast — but it’s not the only one with clear, ink-blue water, centuries-old walls, cathedrals, and a sunny Mediterranean climate. Dubrovnik offers top-quality Michelin restaurants with the most amazing views.
Zadar is very famous for Saharun, one of the country’s best beaches. Its white sand -unusual for Croatia – and gently deepening turquoise shallows have led some to compare it to the Caribbean.
