In pictures: the best destinations in Croatia this autumn

Embrace the golden season with this gallery of the best destinations in Croatia this autumn

Thanks to its gloriously sunny weather, beautiful beaches and pristine seas, Croatia is among the most popular countries in Europe to visit in summer. But there's more to Croatia beyond its beaches. Its oldest towns contain world-famous, protected architecture but are deluged with tourists in the high season. These historic cities lose none of their appeal in autumn when you can enjoy them unfettered by swarms of tourists. Similarly, some areas of inland Croatia, such as Zagreb and the regions of Lika and Gorski Kotor, really come into their own in this season; the forested foothills offering a riot of autumnal colours and a completely different experience to off-season visitors.
