Not just a cruise stop on the Adriatic, but a beautiful country throughout.

Plitvice Lakes

Plitvice Lakes area of Croatia...something I have always wanted to see and it did not disappoint! More beautiful teal/aqua colored water. The park has trails that you can walk and hike for miles, and miles.

The capital of Croatia, in the north of the country just a half hour form the Slovenian border.  One of the things I enjoyed most about Zagreb was the colorful architecture.  Throughout old town, you will see buildings especially in yellow, but also other light pastel colors. 

Lotrščak Tower

you can climb up here for views of the city.  But, not during the time they still use the cannon for a daily blast. 

Stone Gate

Medieval stone gate that contains a very popular shrine to the Virgin Mary. 


 King Tomislav Square

open park and a great place to sit and relax and have lunch.

Contains the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts and the Library of Croatian Academy of Arts and Sciences

Cathedral of Zagreb

Gothic cathedral built in the 13th century and restored in the 1990's. 

and damaged again in 2020 in an earthquake.

Colorful homes in Zagreb

One thing I love about the buildings in Zagreb is the various  colors throughout the city.

Croatia's second largest city, and the largest one on the coast, with a history back to the 4th century.

Diocletian's Palace

huge fortress and palace for the Roman Emperor

Saint Domnius Cathedral

a 4th century cathedral dedicated to the city's patron saint.  Climb the bell tower for an amazing view

Jupiter's Temple

small but interesting temple built in the 3rd century 



Come for The Game of Thrones, and stay for the history.

wander around the city inside the walls, or walk the walls themselves.  It is a gorgeous city!  Prepare for crowds year round, but in the summer...oh, my!

Inside the walls, you will see a number of highlights like The Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, and 18th century Baroque church and Sponza Palace, a 16th century palace now serving as an archive, and Onofrio's Fountain, a 15th century ornate fountain.

and, of course, there is a lot of Game of Thrones tourism here.
