THE FESTIVAL SCENE IN CROATIA

Croatian music festivals are now firmly established on the European circuit spread over three idyllic regions.

The Adriatic

 

Parties take place all along Croatia's Dalmatian coast during the summer. Well established brands like The Yacht Week and Ultra Festival have been combing sailing with festivals for over ten years. The original party route departed from Dubrovnik and ended in Hvar. Nowadays both can be found around the world.

The Garden Tisno

 

The Garden Tisno venue feels like the beginning of Ibiza’s early rave scene. Mixing open-air stages, beaches and boat parties all create a vibe perfectly suited for a memorable summertime holiday. SuncéBeat, Dekmantel Selectors, Love International and the newly relocated Dimensions are all residents here.

Zrcé Beach

 

Zrce beach to the North of the country is garnering a reputation as the party town of Croatia with events like Outlook and Hideout, combining daytime boat parties on the Adriatic and club nights at Papaya, Kalypso, and Noa. Typically at the cutting edge of underground electronic music.

CROATIA AS A DESTINATION

Croatia is uniquely positioned as one of the few places where you can combine your summer holiday with your summer festival experience.

Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast consists of an archipelago of more than 1000 islands and crystal clear blue water joined by cloudless blue skies. Many of its cities are steeped in history and retain their medieval charm.

Its’ limestone caste scattered coastline, pristine lakes, and the melting pot of architecture are just some of the attractions Croatia offers. Croatia’s watercolour has become synonymous with its’ tourism appeal.

With so much variety on offer travellers of all types can holiday in Croatia, regardless of the size of their budgets. One can easily get involved in touring filming locations for Game of Thrones, partying on a boat, or even finding your zen amongst natural wonders.

UNIQUE EXPERIENCES OF CROATIA

Explore the filming sets of Game Of Thrones, swim in crystal clears waters or muse around medieval streets and alleys.

Game Of Thrones Tour

Wander the cellars where the Meereenese slaves lived, walk the streets where they ran, come into view where Daenerys kept her dragons, see into the corridor where the Sons of the Harpy waited for the Unsullied and walk through the streets where the Unsullied Army patrolled.

Klis Fortress

Visit one of the most important medieval structures in all of Dalmatia – the Klis Fortress.

 

As much as it captivates with its exciting history, it thrills with breathtaking views of Split and the islands of Brač, Hvar and Vis.

Krka Waterfalls

Nestled in the very heart of Dalmatia and only an hour from Split. Krka National Park is a perfect getaway for all true nature lovers and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Awe-inspiring waterfalls and crystal clear waters to swim make for a perfect festival detox.
