The Most Magical Croatian Cities To Explore This Summer

It’s no secret that Croatia is one of the prettiest countries in the world. I was lucky enough to spend most of my childhood summer vacations in this beautiful place. Back then, Croatia was still a hidden gem, and most of the tourists were from neighboring countries. The country itself was still recovering from the war that happened in the 1990s, and the prices of food and hotels were unbelievably low. Today, Croatia is a tourist hotspot. Many A-list celebrities, such as Beyonce, Dua Lipa, and Owen Wilson, love to vacation here. The prices aren’t as affordable as they once were, but I still believe that Croatia is still worth a visit. So, if you are looking for a list of the most magical Croatian cities to explore this summer, then keep on reading.

Pula

Pula is known for its Roman amphitheater, one of the best-preserved ones in Europe. It was built in the 1st century BC, while Romans still had power over this charming city. Pula is rich in history, beautiful beaches, amazing seafood, and breathtaking nature. Another Roman monument that you should visit while in Pula is the Arch of the Sergii. Once upon a time, this was the city gate leading up from the naval port.

Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is one of the most beautiful cities in Croatia and has a long and rich history. It was first mentioned in the 10th century, but it’s believed that it was founded in the 7th century by ancient Greeks. And you can feel a certain Greek touch in the architecture in Dubrovnik. In terms of culture and lifestyle, this city offers many opportunities. You can visit beautiful beaches, but also stunning museums such as the Red History Museum, or the Cultural Historical Museum. The nightlife in Dubrovnik is colorful as well, with many amazing nightclubs and bars. If you’re a wine lover, make sure to visit the D’Vino Wine Bar, it’s a charming small place that offers some of Croatia’s best wines.

Famed for its rich history, stunning architecture, and crystal-clear waters, Dubrovnik provides a picturesque setting for a remarkable sailing experience. Imagine gliding past the majestic city walls, as you navigate the azure Adriatic Sea, soaking in the breathtaking views of this UNESCO World Heritage city.

Trogir

Trogir is known for its medieval center with cobblestone streets and beautiful buildings. The city is also known for its Renaissance architecture. If you’re a museum lover, there are plenty of them that you can visit in Trogir. One of them is the Museum of Trogir, which displays art from the Middle Ages and Baroque eras as well as many other paintings by Italian artists like Tiziano Vecelli. This magical city also has some gorgeous beaches. Some of them are Okrug Marina Beach, Slatine Plaza Beach, and Mavarstica.

Split

Split is the second-largest city in Croatia, and I have to warn you that this is an absolute tourist hotspot. The streets of Split are constantly overcrowded, but there is also an endless list of things that you could do while in Split. The nightlife is absolutely crazy—even a bit too crazy, if you ask me. Nightclubs are overcrowded, with both locals and tourists. But there are also plenty of bars, cafes, and restaurants if you prefer to spend your nights out in a more low-key fashion. But make sure to also make some time to visit the numerous historic sites within the Palace of Diocletian.

Kanita is a wanderlust-fueled traveler with an inclination for unraveling the mysteries of history, the paranormal, and the bizarre world of medicine. As a true crime buff, Kanita's nights are often spent delving into the depths of chilling mysteries. Yet, it's not just the paranormal that captivates her—her background in medicine fuels a fascination with the weird and wonderful world of medical oddities, from twisted historical practices to the myths and legends that shroud the field. From exploring haunted locales to uncovering the strange and morbid tales of medical history, Kanita is your guide to the unconventional, the unexplained, and the downright eerie.
