Honeymoon in Croatia: discover which places you should not miss

When we talk about Croatia, we are talking about one of the best honeymoon destinations not only in Europe, but in the world.

This Mediterranean country offers a diversity rarely seen in much larger countries.

The enchanting coastline, Roman and Austro-Hungarian historical influences, beautiful rivers and lakes and superb gastronomy are just some of the trump cards.

If we add to that lower prices than the most popular destinations and good transport connections, it’s no wonder that this country is currently the most searched honeymoon destination in the world on Pinterest.

In this article, we present the best places that you must visit on your honeymoon in Croatia.

One of the most romantic cities in the world: beautiful Rovinj

Rovinj is the most visited destination in Croatia, recording a higher number of overnight stays than even Dubrovnik.

The appearance and bright colors of this city remind us of the French Riviera and the Italian Ligurian coast.

Newlyweds can enjoy walks along the sea, visit the enchanting old town and numerous galleries, and be inspired by the view from St. Euphemia’s basilica.

The tour can be spiced up with a boat trip around the Rovinj archipelago and a visit to the island of Sv. Andrew.

Istrian gastronomy is one of the things that real food lovers must explore. Rovinj is home to two restaurants with a Michelin star: Monte and Agli Amici. If you want to try original local food, the road should take you to taverns, local restaurants with Istrian cuisine. Fish, squid, homemade pasta, Istrian Boškarin ox beef, truffles, wine – the choice is quite large.

Dubrovnik: a place that many fall in love with

It is one of the rare places that is on everyone’s list as the most beautiful in Croatia. This comes with a price and the fact that during the full season, in July and August, it is so congested that it is very difficult to visit its walls.

The old town, the pearl of the Adriatic Sea, is included in the UNESCO list of world cultural heritage. Dubrovnik also has beautiful beaches, which many say are among the most beautiful in Croatia.

You will experience numerous romantic moments on the islands surrounding Dubrovnik, which are called the Elaphite Islands. Inhabited among them are Koločep, Lopud and Šipan. Peaceful islets, without crowds, with beautiful nature are a lure for many who decide to visit them.

For breathtaking views of Dubrovnik take a cable car ride to mount Srđ. The trip itself and the view of the city from the top are a guarantee of unforgettable moments for a lifetime.

Opatija: a touch of romantic aristocracy

Opatija is the cradle of croatian tourism. The beginning of the development of tourism can be traced back to the 19th century, when this place was still a small fishing village.

Over time, Opatija became a favorite destination of the rich, famous and crowned people from all over the world, so it hosted Ban Josip Jelačić, Empress Maria Anna and Austro-Hungarian Emperor Franz Joseph. A lot of effort was put into creating the image of Opatija as a world health resort, and people at the time compared it to Nice.

You will also feel a touch of that glamor on your honeymoon.

Apart from the church of St. Jakov and its monastery, after which this summer resort got its name, the most famous part is certainly the beautiful 10-kilometer Lungomare promenade along the sea itself.

Each of the small towns on the Opatija Riviera has its own story that is worth exploring, regardless of whether it is Ika, Lovran, Mošćenička Draga or Volosko.

You can jump to nearby Rijeka or take a boat trip to Cres and Lošinj.

Also, from the royal Opatija through the medieval fortified towns to the nature park, the Učka mountain is only half an hour’s hilly drive away.

On your honeymoon in Opatija, don’t forget about gastronomy. Enjoy seafood, fish, famous Kvarner shrimp with local olive oil and wine.
