Croatia and the Dalmatian Coast

Observe Plitvice Lakes National Park’s breathtaking waterfalls

Experience Croatia—a country of breathtaking beauty situated on the Adriatic Sea— alongside Curt Simic, president emeritus of the IU Foundation.

Your land adventure begins in Zagreb, a city tucked between the sparkling Sava River and the forested slopes of Mount Medvednica. See St. Mark’s Church, whose roof is decked with the city’s coat of arms, and savor Licitars—a Croatian cookie made from sweet honey dough.

Next, spend the day traversing Plitvice Lakes National Park’s wooden walkways. Home to nearly 160 bird species and 16 terraced lakes, this natural wonder is nothing short of magical.

In Split, enjoy a walking tour. Visit the Diocletian’s Palace—said to be one of the best-preserved monuments of Roman architecture—and roam the passageways, courtyards, and underground chambers of Saint Domnius Cathedral.

A scenic drive along the southern Dalmatian Coast brings you to Dubrovnik—your final stop. Walk the halls of the Franciscan Monastery, take in the city from the crest of Mount Srđ, or browse the maritime museum and aquarium housed inside Fort St. John.
