It is as if the Croatian coast was specially created for yachting. Whether you’re looking for a reason to take up sailing or looking for the perfect spot to express your sailing prowess, Croatia welcomes you with plenty of emerald green islands, rocks artfully stretching out of the water, sandy and pebble beaches, and the cleanest water of the Adriatic Sea, the shades of which range from gentle turquoise color to dark sapphire. Add numerous historic towns and cities, which have survived ups and downs of civilizations from Ancient Rome and Byzantium to the Austro-Hungarian Empire and Yugoslavia, and you’ve got yourself an all-star vacation.

Each era has left its unique mark on the landscape of Croatia. Explore these treasured sights at the Arena in Pula, the Palace of Emperor Diocletian in Split, the Euphrasian Basilica in Poreč, the Old Town in Dubrovnik and Trogir, and many more. Like admiring a fresco in a museum, a sea cruise allows you to view all the richness and splendor of the local coast from a perfect distance. Take advantage of this ideal vantage point.

Popular sights

The most famous, the most popular, the most splendid city of Croatia is certainly Dubrovnik, it’s not without reason that UNESCO included it in the three most beautiful places in Europe together with Venice and Amsterdam. The stonewalls of the Old Town, numerous architectural monuments, museums, palaces, cathedrals, and residential houses under orange tiled roofs rise above the turquoise-coloured waves of the Adriatic Sea. The coast here is full of comfortable beaches and cozy bays, and snow-white yachts slightly roll in a dignified manner by the piers. If you find yourself in Dubrovnik, you should definitely walk along Stradun, which is the main pedestrian street, the Luža Square, and along the old harbor. Pay a visit to the Prince’s Palace, the Cathedral of the Assumption of Virgin Mary, the Franciscan Monastery, and the Sponza Palace. After sightseeing, you can enjoy a meal in local restaurants where you should definitely try home-made wines and seafood dishes like oysters and mussels from the bay in the town of Ston.
Pula is nearly always the starting point of trips over the Istria peninsular. Here you can start familiarizing yourself with natural, cultural, and gastronomic sights of Croatia. The beauty of this city lies in its contrasts. Today’s buildings alternate with Ancient Roman monuments; Venetian architecture is added to the industrial port landscape. There are no high mountains here, but there is a quiet bay; no long sandy beaches, but a resort city status. Pula gives tourists a unique opportunity to be transferred several centuries back “here and now.” The best route by which to familiarize yourself with all Pula sights starts from the Triumphal Arch of Sergius. It then sprawls along Sergijevaca Street and leads to the Forum – the main square of the Old Town. The Roman Temple of August, the City Hall, and the Cvajner Gallery, a very popular place where the cultural life of the city is concentrated, are located here. Now we turn to the right and practically in one hundred meters find ourselves by the Pula Cathedral built in place of the Temple of Jupiter. After that, you can go to the top of the hill and see the Venetian Fortress. A fine view of the city and bay opens from there, and you’ll also see the main gem of Pula, which we left for the “dessert” – the wonderfully preserved Ancient Roman amphitheater. The Arena built in the 1st century A.D. saw gladiator combats and knight tournaments; today it’s a concert and festival venue. After the extensive walk over the city, leave some strength for the gastronomic part of the route. They serve well-known Croatian specialties in local restaurants: truffles, wine, and rakija. If you want fresh seafood, it’s better to turn back to the port in order to accompany dinner with a wonderful view of the sea and yacht harbour.
Brac Island
There are two things to know about the island of Brać: the first, involves white limestone and the second, regards a rather peculiar beach. The white limestone, known as Brać limestone, is mined in local quarries. It was used to build the Palace of Diocletian in Split as well as to face the White House in Washington D.C.. Zlatni Rat is the name of the most unusual beach on the Croatian seacoast. It is located in the small fishermen’s village of Bol and has a unique feature – its southern end can change shape depending on the waves and wind. The beach stretches out into the sea for 300 meters, welcoming bathers from both sides. If vacation time on the beach is not included in your program, you should at least drop into the town of Supetar and buy a bottle of famous local wine Bolski Plavac.
