Welcome to the first part of Croatia for children in 2020 series!

Due to the outbreak of Coronavirus in Croatia and Europe, most of the attractions in the article are temporarily closed as of March 2020. There is no change regarding the events in the summertime. I will keep you posted on any updates.

Let’s start by saying that Croatia is an excellent destination for traveling with children altogether. The air is fresh, you can enjoy the numerous national parks, the beaches are safe and clean (and a lot), and there is entertainment all across the country. Still, some destinations deliver more in terms of family vacations and fun for the little ones. Let’s check them out in Croatia for children in 2020 series!

Dalmatia is the perfect place to visit in the summertime. With beautiful beaches and national parks, sunny islands, medieval history and cool modern museums, Dalmatia offers plenty of fun for kids and is an excellent choice for travel with babies, toddlers, kids, or teenagers.

Here are the best cities and events for children (and why not grown-ups too).


Sea organ and the monument to the sun

Zadar has two unique monuments that fascinate kids and adults alike. The sea organ makes similar to whale sounds when the waves reach the tubes installed underwater at the coast. The Monument to the Sun is a large disc that collects the sun’s rays and creates a very cool light show at dark. Kids would love to dance and run around. It is also one of the best spots for taking pictures.

Locals and tourists equally love to hang around and sit around the two monuments, enjoying the lights, while listening to the one-of-a-kind sea music.

Museum of Illusions

The Museum of Illusions franchise started in Croatia and the country has two such museums – one in the capital Zagreb, and one in Zadar. These are among the most visited museums in Croatia, so don’t even think of skipping them! The experience at the museum is suitable and interesting for all ages, even babies and toddlers. Teenagers would love it for sure!
