Croatia Holidays

Croatia Holidays have been on the up for the last decade as people have realised that Croatia offers some wonderfully unspoilt Mediterranean coastline, charming villages and a great blend of food from Italy and the Balkan countries.

During the 1990’s, Croatia found itself waging a war for independence during a time when the politics of the entire region were in the midst of change. The war was against a Serbian group called the Republic of Serb Krajina and later against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia war lasted through 1995 and led to significant economic trouble in the area.

Balkan Holidays are a specialist in holidays to Croatia. For more options please check our beach breaks page for the best sites to book Croatia beach holidays and our city breaks page for the best short breaks to Croatia such as Dubrovnik.

Today, Croatia is in the process of joining the EU and NATO. The only travel warning that still exists here is that de-mining of the war-torn area continues to this day so it’s necessary to read signage carefully and to be aware of the issue. For the most part, Croatia is a beautiful country with cities rich in history, lush countryside and a truly stunning coastline with popular tourist spots such as the party island of Hvar located on the Adriatic coast. The most popular resorts to visit in Croatia are Dubrovnik, Porec and Cavtat. Holidays to Croatia are offered as summer only destinations by both Thomson and Thomas Cook.
