EuroVelo 8 takes you through the most beautiful parts of the Croatian Mediterranean coast and hinterland. You will meet a rich cultural and historical heritage that dates back the ancient era, enjoy the natural beauties and visit many locations listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites, such as Dubrovnik and Split. Croatia’s long and uneven coastline is punctuated by islands of notorious beauty. Nature is everywhere and the colours bring together the beautiful landscapes. Large parts of the route pass directly along the coast, and the most attractive parts in the hinterland through the virgin areas of the most beautiful Croatian mountain and UNESCO biosphere reserve Velebit.
