We have finally planned our first trip to Croatia with our 11yo son, arriving on July9. We will have 7full days on the ground, flights have been booked into and out of Zagreb.
Straight from the airport in the evening of our arrival we will drive to Plitvice and sleep in one of the hotels in the park for 2nights.
Then drive to Kuterevo and visit the Bear Sanctuary.
Drive to Istria, sleep in Rovinj for 5nights from where we consider daytrips to: Pula, Motovun (truffle hunting) and the hilltop villages, Dekleva lavender farm, Kanfanar (concert in the wee church), medieval festival, beaches.
Please advise on the itinerary, local food restaurants and attractions that I missed.
Thanks in advance!
