Discover Croatia, from the winding streets of Zagreb, to the sparkling Dalmatian Coast, and magnificent Dubrovnik, the epic walled city featured in countless films. Croatia’s complex history comes to life as you explore landmark sites including Zagreb’s 13th-century St. Mark’s church decked in medieval coat of arms.  Rejuvenate your soul in a wonderland of misty waterfalls in Plitvice National Park, and linger in Diocletian’s palace before finding your way to Split’s lively town center, located inside palace walls. Meet master craftsmen on the island of Brac and explore charming Trogir with its 5th-century palace, landmark church, and the archeological ruins of Salonas nearby.  Lose yourself along the ancient passageways of Dubrovnik, tour its Franciscan Monastery, and visit Europe’s oldest pharmacy. Expert lectures shed light on Croatia’s nautical history, Yugoslav Wars, modern life and more. This 10-night journey also includes first-class accommodations and an extensive meal plan, featuring wine with dinner.
