Voyages Jules Verne

Uncover Croatia and her islands

Crescent-shaped Croatia, with one side pointing eastwards and the other reaching down along the magnificent Dalmatian coast, is littered with small islands, each offering visitors something special. And of course there’s mainland Croatia, with its rich Mediterranean beauty and unique attractions.

Croatia’s islands give visitors something new to discover every day. Hvar reveals palaces, monasteries and churches and is wonderfully free of cars; Mljet’s 12th-century monastery of St. Mary lies on a striking salt lake in the Mljet National Park and Korcula is home to the 13th-century cathedral of St. Mark, an architectural triumph with Gothic and Renaissance elements.

Croatia offers so much in the way of nature and culture that it has seven recognised UNESCO World Heritage sites, four of which you can explore with us. Trogir, one of these UNESCO sites, is a jewel of the Dalmatia, with its narrow, intertwining streets. Another highlight on the Croatian coast is Split, which was first settled when the Roman Emperor, Diocletian, built a palace which now forms an old town area like no other.

Dubrovnik is a real treat for culture enthusiasts. In its golden years, Dubrovnik was a significant economic and cultural centre, rivalling Venice for supremacy. Its fortified walls now host an array of museums, galleries, treasuries, churches and fine palaces.

Weather & Climate

Croatia has a varied climate, with continental climate conditions inland and Mediterranean influence on the Adriatic coast.

When to go

Peak season is July to August with temperatures in the high 20s or 30s in places like Split, but you can expect plenty of sunshine from roughly May to October on the coast, and the shoulder seasons (May-June and September) are among the best times to visit.
