Croatia Family Holidays
Croatia is a great family holiday destination. It is relatively close to the UK – a flight from London to Zagreb Croatia will take you just two and a half hours, which is a similar journey to a flight to other popular summer holiday destinations such as Spain, Portugal and Greece.
Whether you choose to stay in one of the country’s fantastic city centres resorts, or relax by the seaside, Croatia really has got something for type of family.
If you are looking for a beach holiday, there are some great resorts to choose from. The 1,000 miles of coastline is literally covered with excellent safe, sandy, family-friendly beaches. For more information on Croatia’s beaches, please have a look at our beaches page within the activities section.
For city-lovers and active holidays, here are a few gems that families and children of all ages will love:
Kids will love exploring this vast Gothic castle, particularly the dungeon! The building dates back to the 1200s and, after falling into a bad state of disrepair during the late 18th century, was adopted by the government just fifty years ago, restored to its former glory, and launched as a fantastic ‘living’ museum, complete with surrounding parklands…perfect for a picnic after your tour.

Terme Tuhelj is an underground thermal spa located less than thirty miles outside of Zagreb Croatia. It is great for children and grown-ups. Adults can enjoy the mud baths, massage and sauna facilities, while the kids immerse themselves in the excellent activities programme which includes a variety of sports from mini golf to basketball.
Neretva River Rafting
This is great for active families who don’t mind getting a little wet! Up to eight people can share a raft, and will be fully trained and supervised by experienced guides as they make their way along the 10 miles stretch of the Neretva River from Mostar to Biletic. The rafting is very safe and is suitable for adults and children of all ages. The river is extremely clear and calm, especially during the summer, however full safety equipment is provided.

This is the oldest museum in Croatia, dating back to the 1820s. Whilst it is ultimately an educational attraction, children will love looking at the artefacts and finding out about the different historical periods, from the Jurassic Age to the Greek, Roman and Medieval times. More on Split.......
