5 beautiful historical towns to explore in Croatia

Sailing the high seas of the Adriatic is an unforgettable experience for itself, however, don't forget that Croatia has an abundance of spectacular historical towns and gorgeous atmospherical alley-ways that will take you back in time. Check out some of the beauties you can roam through on route The Yacht Week.

 

1. TROGIR

Trogir is a charming mix of Renaissance, baroque and Romanesque buildings set on a tiny island connected by a small bridge. How cute does that sound? Get lost in the alley-ways and randomly find a romantic table for one, and let the atmosphere sink in with your fav book and a macchiato. Dream!

2. VIS

Enjoy a stroll down the coastal promenade of this 17th-century gem and indulge in its dreamy laid back vibe. Narrow alley-ways will lead you to old stone houses decorated with lush Meditteranean vegetation and dark green doors and shutters. A cherry on the top is Fort George, a gorgeous 19-century fortress where we host some of our best parties. We love Vis!

3. HVAR

Hvar is so much more than a party hub that it has a reputation for. You'd be crazy not to explore fortress Spanjola and check out the spectacular view of Pakleni islands from its ancient walls. The alley-ways of Hvar town offer so many delights in forms of gorgeous traditional cake shops, yummy restaurants, and souvenir shops. Get lost and enjoy!

4. BOL

We have to say it, Bol is just Un-Bol-ievable. Zlatni Rat beach takes the spotlight for sure, but behind the glitzy beach, lies a little old town that will steal your heart with its small stone houses and winding streets. Do not forget to taste the wine and mingle with the locals!

5. SPLIT

With a neverending source of history, GOT sights, cobblestone alley-ways, and petite restaurants, there's no way Split won't light a spark in your heart. Dating back to the Roman empire, you'll be traveling back in time as you follow the steps of Diocletian, who made Split his retirement home. And who wouldn't? Roam, discover and play your way around.
