Getaway Compass

CROATIA

Croatia has incredible national parks, islands, coastline and medieval cities. The medieval cities take you back in time with their stone walls and tiled red roofs. Walk along the wall in Dubrovnik for views of the old city or stand beside a 78 meter tall waterfall in Plitvice Lakes National Park. Visit one of the many islands for a chance to relax before you go back to another busy week of work in the office.

BEST TIME TO GO

Early fall (September-October) and late spring (April-May) offer good weather in most of the country and less crowds than the summer

Transportation

Rental Car: This is the best option if you are planning to visit the national parks and multiple cities. Croatia is a perfect country for a road trip. Note that an automatic car is significantly more expensive than a manual car, so opt for a manual car if you can.

Busses: There are busses that run throughout the country. This is a cheaper option if you have plenty of time, because you are dependent on the bus schedules.

Airplane: The airline that flies within the country is Croatia Airlines. If you road trip from Dubrovnik to Zagreb, you can then fly back from Zagreb to Dubrovnik with Croatia Airlines for $60-$100 one way.
