Are you a nature lover looking to make the most of your Croatia city break? With such a wide range of natural beauty spots on offer in this country, it can be tough to decide where to go first. However, by reading this article you’ll discover some of the truly unmissable destinations that can take their places at the top of your holiday bucket list.

Mljet National Park

Located in the southernmost part of Croatia, the island of Mljet is well worth the journey thanks to its wonderful national park. If you’re looking for greenery, this place provides more than enough, with its dense pine forests stretching over several miles. During your visit, you can kayak on the sparkling blue waters, explore spooky caves or simply hike through the forests with your travel companions.


Of course, if you’re heading off on a Croatia city break, chances are high that you’ll be planning to visit the country’s capital in any case. While you’re there, don’t miss the botanical garden and the famous public park if you’re looking to get in touch with nature. There are plenty of cultural and historical attractions available in this area, but the little corners of greenery are not to be forgotten about.

Peljesac Peninsula

Head to Peljesac Peninsula (the country’s largest peninsula), to enjoy some astonishing views of the surrounding landscape while sampling local wines and fresh seafood at one of the nearby restaurants. With the stunning mountain backdrop, lush green vineyards and the turquoise sea surrounding you, you’ll feel as if you’re in another world.

Plitvice Lakes National Park

You can’t go on a Croatia city break without visiting this well-known gem – the park attracts millions of tourists every year, and it’s easy to see why once you pay it a visit. While hiking around the beautiful natural wilderness, you might be lucky enough to spot some of the local wildlife. Brown bears, boars and lynxes have been spotted in the park, and those with a keen eye may notice smaller mammals too.

Zagorje Region

If you’re looking to relax on your Croatia city break, head over to the Zagorje region and make the most of the area’s peace and quiet. Complete with pretty hilltop vineyards, thermal springs and a quaint Old Town, this is the perfect place to spend the day. Add a little culture to your trip and visit the thirteenth-century Trakošćan Castle – this spot provides some fabulous panoramic views, so don’t forget your camera.

A Croatia city break is the perfect holiday for nature loving travellers, especially those who have plenty of time to discover various areas of the country. With stunning scenery around every corner and plenty of opportunities for exploration, you really can’t go wrong!
