Day 1Saturday: - Arrival - Poreč

7.00 a.m. departure – Munich – Poreč 6 h, 563 km, arrival 3.00 p.m. (incl. 2 hour break)
5.00 departure – Stuttgart – Poreč 8 h 30 min, 804 km, arrival 15.00 (including a 1.5 hour break)
6.00 a.m. departure – Nuremberg – PoreČ 7. h 30 min, 735 km arrival 3.00 p.m. (incl. 1.5 hour break)

After a long drive and sitting, what’s better than walking and exploring a new destination.
Arrived in Poreč we embark on a short tour of the city and the Euphrasian Basilica.

The Euphrasian Basilica, the most valuable cultural asset of Poreč, was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1997. The early Christian complex is the only completely preserved monument from this period in the world.
Poreč, which is almost two thousand years old. Walking through the old town of Poreč, we discover that the layout of the streets is a legacy of the ancient Roman castrum, countless monuments from Roman times confirm this.

Hotel accommodation, dinner, overnight.

Day 2Sunday: Poreč – Zadar

Breakfast, Poreč – Zadar 4 sat 10 min, 390 km

We leave the region of Istria and head towards northern Dalmatia to the city of Zadar.

Unterkunft im Hotel, kurze Pause, frühes Abendessen und wir machen uns auf zu einer abendlichen Tour durch die Stadt Zadar.

Zadar: In May 1964, the famous director Alfred Hitchcock uttered a sentence that is still remembered today. “Zadar has the most beautiful sunsets in the world, more beautiful than the one in Key West, in Florida, applauded at every evening”
Today we have “two” suns in Zadar, let’s discover them…
The urbanized area of Zadar is two thousand years old, all eras have left visible traces on the old peninsula, let’s discover them.

The defence system (walls) of the city of Zadar and the Land Gate are protected by UNESCO. They are part of a group of six defensive walls built by the Republic of Venice between the 15th and 17th centuries along the Adriatic coast.

Day 3Monday: Zadar - Šibenik - Split

Breakfast, Zadar – Šibenik 1h 30 min, 90 km

The city of Šibenik is located in central Dalmatia, where the Krka River flows into the Adriatic Sea. Šibenik was mentioned in 1066 (under its most important name) in a charter of Croatian king Petar Kresimir IV.
For this reason the city is also “Krešimirov grad” (Kresimir City).

Šibenik is the only city in Croatia with two UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the Cathedral of St. James and the Feast of St. Nicholas.
Cathedral of Saint James – an important combination of Gothic & Renaissance
It is the only church in Europe built in stone, without any material whatsoever. It is also fascinating for the series of 71 realistic sculptural portraits surrounding the apse.

Free time for lunch and rest – if you wish, you can go to St. Anne’s Fortress individually.

The Fortress of St. Nicholas is at the entrance to the port of Sibenik and was built in the 16th century to prevent Turkish ships from entering the port. Today it is one of the most valuable and best preserved examples of defensive architecture in Dalmatia and part of the UNESCO list since 2017.

Šibenik – Split 1h 15min, 95km

Hotel accommodation, free time, dinner, overnight.

Day 4Tuesday: Split - Trogir - Split

Breakfast, Split – Trogir 40 min, 30 km

Trogir, just thirty kilometers from Split, is another wonder of ancient Roman architecture. The entire city was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1997. We visit the Cathedral of St. Lovre, the main church of the city, which is one of the best architectural examples in Croatia. It is known for its Romanesque portal created by Master Radovan. That
Probably the most important symbol of Trogir is the Kamerlengo Tower (at the end of the town’s waterfront), which was built after the establishment of the Venetian rule in the 15th

Back to Split. Diocletian’s Palace is one of the best preserved monuments of Roman architecture in the world. The name “Palace” can be confusing because when you really come to Split you will not feel like you are in the palace but in a fortified part of the old town. It is interesting to note that during the reign of Emperor Diocletian there was nothing around the palace. At that time Split did not even exist – only the palace and its inhabitants.
In 1979 it was included in the UNESCO list.

Free afternoon, dinner, overnight stay.

Day 5Wednesday: Split - Cista Velika - Dubrovnik

Breakfast, Split – Cista Velika 45 min 50 km.

Stećci (medieval tombstones) in Cista Velika. Protected by UNESCO, these monuments were created in the 12th century and were in use until the late 15th century. They were common among Catholics and Orthodox and were often written in Old Bosnian Cyrillic. There are two necropolises in Croatia – in Cista Velika and in Konavle, and they are written in the Glagolitic language.

Cista Velika – Dubrovnik 2 h 40 min, 192 km

Hotel accommodation, free time, dinner, overnight.

Day 6Thursday: Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik’s Old Town is the reason why the famous English poet Lord Byron gave this city the nickname “Pearl of the Adriatic”. The old town was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979 and since then it has attracted more than a million visitors every year. The historic city centre is actually a fortress thanks to the 2 km long city walls, which served as protection against invaders in the past. The main street in the old town is called Stradun and it is a popular meeting place for locals and tourists. At the end of Stradun you can see the beautiful Gothic-Renaissance Sponza Palace and the Rector’s Palace, featured in the world-famous TV series Game of Thrones.

Free afternoon, dinner, overnight stay.

Day 7Friday: Dubrovnik, Plitvice Lakes National Park

Breakfast, Dubrovnik – Plitvice Lakes National Park 5 hours, 432 km.

Hotel accommodation and immediate departure to visit the national park.

Plitvice Lakes National Park is the largest, oldest and most visited national park in Croatia. And on top of that, it’s the only one to have made it onto the UNESCO World Heritage List. Why? Mainly because of its rich flora and fauna and sixteen magical turquoise lakes with numerous cascades. The beauty of this national park is truly unique and that is why more than a million people from all over the world visit Plitvice.

Dinner, overnight stay.
