Croatia’s bustling capital city, with its magnificent combination of old history and a stylish lineup of restaurants, festivals, and shops, attracts a growing number of travellers. Zagreb is a terrific year-round vacation, with lovely colours in the city’s many prominent parks in the spring and autumn, Ideal for visiting a variety of museums and galleries, including the ever-popular Museum of Broken Relationships.

Slovenia is the only country in Europe that straddles the Alps, the Mediterranean, the Pannonia Plain, and the Karst.
Its little seaside settlements are charming and well worth the visit. The Slovenian Julian Alps steal the show in this little country, with stunning lake communities, crystal clear rivers, and grassy plains transformed into an exciting paradise.

The lively Rovinj is the primary lure on Istria’s shore. Rovinj is a vibrant coastal city with some of Croatia’s best restaurants and beaches. Venice, often known as the “City of Canals,” “The Floating City,” and “Serenissima,” is one of Italy’s most beautiful cities.
