1. Walk Dubrovnik’s Old Town Walls
Known to Game of Thrones fans as Kings Landing, this ancient walled city is a must-see for every lover of the hit HBO series. Even those who know absolutely nothing about George R.R Martin’s fictional world will fall in love with the beauty of the terracotta rooftops and sparkling blue waters of the Adriatic Sea from up above.

Located about 130km from the capital, Zagreb, Plitvice is an ensemble of 16 natural lakes that cascade into one another, forming the most stunning waterfall.

3. Enjoy a beach day at Zlatni Rat Beach
Often referred to as the Golden Cape or Golden Horn, Zlatni Rat is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Situated less than 2km from the town of Bol, the stunning 500-metre long pebble beach has a unique shape and can comfortably accommodate over 10,000 people.
