Croatia has a rich history that reflects its location at the crossroads of Europe. City destinations such as Dubrovnik and Split are Unesco world heritage sites, as are the cathedrals in Trogir and Sibenik and the basilica in Porec.
Croatia enjoys a Mediterranean climate on the coast, with warm summers making July and August the peak season on the Adriatic. If you enjoy sightseeing, choose June or September, when temperatures are cooler. Autumn is a good time to enjoy inland Istria and national park areas.
Croatia is a country of dramatic mountainous landscapes and a long and lovely coastline. Falkensteiner Iadera Hotel is particularly stunning with a beautiful beachfront overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, surrounded by cooling pine forests.
