Croatia Coast Cruises from CroisiEurope

Our specially designed coastal cruise ship MS Belle de l'Adriatique sails unique itineraries to the highlights of the Croatian coast and islands. Carrying just 200 passengers, the ship is able to call at Croatian ports and islands that larger ships cannot reach.

Starting in the World Heritage Site of Dubrovnik, with its old port and city walls, the cruise visits the beautiful islands of Mljet and Korkula, the latter the birthplace of the explorer Marco Polo. From the ancient settlement of Sibenik reach the Krka Falls before cruising to the World Heritage Site island of Trogir and on to the preserved Roman centre of Split.

The westernmost Croatian island of Vis remains an unspoilt gem, and togther with the sailing port at Hvar offers a glimpse of the "Mediterranean as it used to be". From Hvar the cruise sails into the Montenegro port of Kotor along a fjord reminiscent of Norway past islands with historic churches. The old walled town of Kotor is notable for its medieval buildings, including the 9th century cathedral of St Tryphon.

Hvar is a picturesque island on the Dalmatian Riviera, with good bathing beaches and a harbour backed by a hillside of terracotta-tiled houses. There are views of the sea and surrounding islets from the Fortica fortress, and the Franciscan monastery houses a museum exhibiting 16th-century paintings.

The first view of Rovinj from the sea is the much-photographed Riva waterfront and its brightly-painted houses, and the bell-tower of Saint Eufemia's Church which can be climbed for wonderful views of the town and the picturesque islands along the coast. Narrow cobbled streets lead up to the old town from the harbour, where three ancient defensive gates survive. Red Island and its beaches can be reached in 15 minutes by boat from Rovinj.

Split

The World Heritage Site of Split is a bustling city and the second largest in Croatia. It gradually developed around the palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, built more than 1700 years ago and incorporating columns and sphinxes from Egypt. Remarkably it still thrives today, housing restaurants, shops and markets. Within the palace is the Peristile, a colonnaded square, and the cathedral. Split's Archaeological Museum exhibits Roman artefacts including coins, and reliefs of mythical figures.
