The old harbour at Dubrovnik, Croatia

Game of Thrones fans will already know Dubrovnik even if they don’t realise it. Because despite hundreds of years of colourful – and at times, tragic – history, Dubrovnik is known to many people only as a well-used location for the HBO series. This new notoriety has only increased Dubrovnik’s allure, and the historic port is enjoying a renewed surge of visitors. Meanwhile, well-worn travellers and lovers of history are still attracted to Dubrovnik for more traditional reasons.


Split, Croatia

Croatia has become an incredibly popular travel destination in the last couple of decades, and few cities have embraced the change with as much gusto as the beautiful harbour-side city of Split. With its old Roman buildings, incredible scenery and stunning facilities, if you enjoy history, luxury and natural beauty, then Split should certainly be on your wishlist.
