Nestled by the Adriatic Sea, Croatia in Central Europe is a painting come alive and the perfect fantasy honeymoon destination. The beaches are white, the water azure, while cities like Dubrovnik, and their cobblestoned streets, lead you on a journey through the past. Regardless of where you are, the country of Croatia is pure eye candy.
Croatia is the filming location of the television series, Games of Thrones, with the Adriatic Sea turning into Blackwater Bay. If you are a fan, many tours will take you to all the show’s favorite sites. Put the fun in your honeymoon!
Dubrovnik, located by the Sea, is a city rich with history. It is truly the pearl of the Balkans. The city was walled-in as protection against enemies in the 9th century. Now, a walk along the top of the wall provides you with a spectacular and unforgettable view. Stroll around the city itself for a closer look at its baroque architecture.
When you are finished walking, take the cable car up Mt. Srdj. Enjoy a meal while being surrounded by one of the world’s most panoramic vistas of the city, including the many beaches.
For the ideal beach honeymoon experience, visit the island of Hvar, which has been named one of the ten greatest islands. Exciting entertainment, olive orchards, vineyards, and unsurpassed watersports await you. As for the olive gardens, Croatia might have the best selection of olive oil in the world, so this is the place to learn about the different varieties and perhaps stock up.
Another can’t-miss destination in Croatia is the city of Split. As scenic as Dubrovnik, it is easily accessible by plane, bus, or ferry and makes a good base for exploring the rest of Croatia. Split was meant to be explored on foot as you stroll to the Diocletian Palace, the Cathedral’s Bell Tower, and Jupiter’s Temple. Take a walk alongside the Mediterranean promenade and revel in the view.
