Zagreb, Plitvice, Split, Dubrovnik, extension to Rome

Since declaring its independence in 1991, Croatia has emerged as a hidden jewel of Southeastern Europe.

This is especially true at Plitvice Lakes National Park, where waterfalls cascade from emerald cliffs into azure pools below, creating a surprising paradise. History abounds in the cities of Zagreb and Split, while Dubrovnik reveals a jet-setting, seaside delight.
