City Essentials

Blessed with a Mediterranean climate on the coast and a continental climate inland, Croatia is a delightful travel destination all year round. If sun-soaked beaches, vibrant nightlife, and bustling street markets are your idea of a holiday, plan for a visit between June and August. For those seeking a peaceful escape complete with leisurely strolls through national parks and city sightseeing without the crowds, the shoulder seasons of May and September offer warmer temperatures and fewer tourists. Culture aficionados will find the Winter months ideal to explore Zagreb’s iconic Christmas markets and outstanding old town attractions at attractively off-season prices.


Croatian nightlife is vibrant and varied, mirroring the country's cultural richness and diversity. From trendy nightspots in the bustling city of Zagreb and high-energy beach clubs on the Dalmatian coast, to intimate wineries in Istria and live music venues in Rijeka, night-owls of every persuasion will find something to their taste. For a truly Croatian experience, spend an evening at a 'konoba,' enjoying traditional music, known as 'Klapa.' For those in the coastal cities like Split or Dubrovnik during summer, open-air festivals and concerts are a must.
