What you'll do

Cutting-edge artwork, traditional stonemasonry, hilltop fortresses, tucked-away monasteries, Roman ruins, and Renaissance palaces––Croatia has it all. On this visually inspiring journey, we’ll discover Croatia’s rich history and culture through its eclectic and innovative art and architecture. Traveling from Zagreb to the Dalmatian Coast, we’ll meet local artists and artisans, revel in haunting melodies created by the Sea Organ, explore the tucked-away corners of Diocletian’s Palace, visit the former seaside home of sculptor Ivan Meštrović, and stay in a Renaissance-era palace or two. We’ll also taste delicious local cheeses, olive oils, and other delicacies as we experience island life on the Adriatic. Each night, we’ll retire to atmospheric accommodations replete with architectural details that hint at a bygone era. This trip is offered by Atlas Obscura. Once you've reserved your spot, our team will be in touch to help you prepare for the trip. This trip is limited to 12 travelers.

I'm your Atlas Obscura Trip Coordinator. Since 2016, Atlas Obscura has been offering unusual trips to the world’s most extraordinary places. Our itineraries are developed in close collaboration with the locals and insiders who host them—our global community of explorers, artists, researchers, and experts who grant us access to unique places and amazing experiences. Elaine Ritchel will be leading your trip. Elaine is a museum geek and aesthete who fell in love with Croatia while couchsurfing across the country. After completing thesis research on Croatian sculptor Ivan Meštrović, she moved to Zagreb and spent years visiting studios, writing about Croatian artists, and secretly baking cookies for a local cafe. Though Elaine now lives in Santa Fe where she runs art tours, she regularly returns to her favorite seaside villages of Croatia.
