Croatia “must see” list

After visiting Croatia to experience the destination for your wedding, we suggest you prolong your vacation with at least a few more days to experience the country a little bit.

The fact that it is smaller when comparing to the rest of the world, goes in our favor because the whole country can be explored easily.  It’s pretty unique that one country can offer you the mountains, the sea, the hills, cities with a rich history, lakes, waterfalls and many more.

One of the first stops when visiting Croatia should definitely be Zagreb, the capital city.


Croatia’s northwestern capital is distinguished by its 18th- and 19th-century Austro-Hungarian architecture. At its center, Upper Town is the site of the Gothic, twin-spired Zagreb Cathedral and 13th-century St. Mark’s Church, with a colorfully tiled roof. Nearby is pedestrian-friendly Tkalčićeva Street, lined with outdoor cafes. Lower Town has the main square, Ban Jelačić, plus shops, museums and parks. (https://www.zagreb.hr/en).

Besides Zagreb, there is one more city that is quite famous because of Game of Thrones, it’s some series, Google it if you don’t know it.


and it’s a great tourist spot. Be careful because it gets packed during high season.

Apart from sightseeing the cities, if you are more of a nature lover here are a few suggestions to check it out:
