Modern art, Renaissance palaces, Roman ruins. Welcome to Croatia—Italy's less-trodden neighbor on the Adriatic Sea. This Mediterranean marvel is more than the crystalline waters of its pristine shores. Join in this journey focused on art and architecture.
Our expert guides will show us tucked-away corners of famous sites—such as Diocletian's Palace in Split—and far-flung towns on Brač, the island where the stone used to build the ancient palace came from. But even more impressive is the insider's perspective on modern Adriatic art our guides will share with us. In Zagreb, we'll learn about an intriguing yet little-known 1960s art movement. The group, New Tendencies, was the first to turn to the computer in anticipation of new media and digital art.
Although our focus is on all things art, Croatian hospitality is irrepressible. Along the way, we’ll stay in atmospheric accommodations—replete with visually arresting architectural details—and meet local artisans as we savor Croatian cheese, olive oil, and wine. More than a visually inspiring journey, these ten days will prove that Croatia has it all.
