Discover Croatia - home to crumbling castles, medieval cities, thundering waterfalls and enchanting islands.
Whether you want to walk the marble streets of Dubrovnik, dip your toe in the azure waters of the Adriatic Sea, tuck into a hearty plate of Dalmatian brodetto in Split or marvel at tumbling waterfalls in Plitvice Lakes National Park, your DK Eyewitness travel guide to Croatia makes sure you experience all that the country has to offer.
Evidence of Croatia's ancient past is easy to find. Ancient mythology permeates the country, nowhere more so than across the constellation of islands that pepper the Dalmatian coastline. The country is also home to vibrant cosmopolitan cities like Zagreb, which features an array of unique museums and modern art galleries. All the while, sparkling waves lap sultry, sun-drenched beaches where turquoise waters beckon.
