Zagreb and Northeastern Croatia
Zagreb was voted number one European destination in 2017. Magical and medieval, castles mix and mingle with Renaissance and Baroque charm.
- Our winter tours based in Zagreb coincide with the epic Zagreb winter festival, winner of the best Christmas Festival for 3 years – festive charm, street food, and wonderful ambience!
- Slavonia, the rural heartland with strong ties to traditions of fine wines and artisanal cheeses—and the most lauded cured meats in the country.
- Wines, wines, and more wines! A cellar in Kutjevo dates back to 1232— WOW!
- The land of paprika! This is where they spice it up! From the sensational Kulen sausages to the wonderfully piquant fish stews, Slavonian cuisine is hearty, fresh and fiery with a strong Hungarian influence.
- For nature lovers, there’s Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia’s natural wonder and most famous park. It’s a breathtaking chain of emerald green lakes and waterfalls that amaze in every season.
