Secret Wonders of Croatia

Combine the cultural heritage and natural beauty of the islands and coast of less-visited central Croatia on a cruise, ideal for nature lovers and for the second time visitor

Combine four UNESCO heritage sites with three national parks on a private Jules Verne cruise. Visit Split with its abundance of Roman architecture, the medieval coastal gem of Zadar the ancient Dalmatian capital, Šibenik and the coastal towns of Primošten, Skradin and Sali.

Kornati National Park is composed of uninhabited islands, islets and reefs, the largest and most dense archipelago in the Adriatic, whose caves, grottoes and rugged cliffs create an ethereal stark whiteness against the deep blue Adriatic.

Plitvice Lakes are Croatia’s oldest National Park, established in 1949, a wonderland of karst rock formations with a chain of 16 terraced lakes, joined by waterfalls that extend into a limestone canyons creating vibrant colours.
