Group accommodation in Croatia at HI group hostels
Shaped like a croissant and with an alphabet made up of 30 letters, Croatia manages to combine a rich and varied heritage with some of the best beaches in the Med. It is bordered by Slovenia to the northwest, Hungary to the north, Bosnia and Herzegovina to the southeast, Serbia in the east, and Montenegro to the south. So whether you are a history group looking to discover the hidden past of this diverse Central European destination or a sports group ready to island hop and make the most of the crystal clear waters, Croatia will have something to offer you. Not only that there are national parks ready for hikers and walkers, caves and cliffs for adventure seekers and cobbled streets lined with cafes and restaurants which will keep people spotters and foodies happy for hours. Add to that the fact that there are 24 professional orchestras, 117 cinemas and 175 museums contained within the country, and you can see why Croatia is a great place for any group to visit!
Croatia is a country of stunning contrasts making it the ideal destination for all kinds of group trips.

Choose from the following locations to view our group hostels in Croatia:
Zagreb – The capital city of Croatia, Zagreb is split into two distinct sections - the upper and lower part of town. Both offer group visitors a host of attractions which are mostly accessible on foot. The Upper Town is full of history with, churches, monuments, restaurants, theatres and cinemas whereas the Lower Town is home to museums, parks, monuments and shopping. And of course there is also Jarun Lake which is a haven for water sports in the summer and skating in the winter. With a city zoo and a tram for those more difficult to reach sights, Zagreb is a great city to discover whether you are a large or small group.
Zadar - Perfect for sampling the Dalmatian Coast without the crowds, Zadar is a city which is becoming a firm favourite for those looking to immerse themselves in history and culture. Combining the best of both worlds, the city boasts 12th century churches as well as the more modern Monument to the Sun, a large disc of solar-powered cells that becomes a multi-coloured disco ball as the sun sets. Don't miss the exhibitions on Zadar's gold and silver or if you enjoy music, then why not head down to the harbour to experience the free festivals which take place throughout the summer. And if you enjoy swimming or walking, then the Krka National Park would be perfect for your group looking to soak up Zadar's natural beauty.
Rijeka – One of Croatia's best kept secrets, Rijeka is starting to attract more and more visitors looking to discover the real Croatia. With an historic background, the best way to see the sights is on foot by following the well-signposted tourist path. Rijeka also attracts divers from around the world who like to experience the underwater cliffs and then see the ship wrecks in the clear waters surrounding the city. And don't miss the market - it's a great place to see the locals selling the freshest fish and fruit. Or what about visiting the 'Peek and Poke' museum - the largest exhibition of looking at the history of Croatian computers in the country!
Dubrovnik - A must-do is to walk the city walls with an audio guide - the 2km trail provides you with a history lesson as well as a reprieve from the crowds below. Don't miss the Franciscan Monastery with the Old Pharmacy Museum with jars of pickled pieces on show dating back to the 15th century. Locals still use the pharmacy today to go and pick up their prescriptions. Don't miss the cable car to the Srdj or the market in the main square. All the pigeons are fed at 12noon signalling the end of market day. And of course Dubrovnik is known for its summer festival when groups of theatre goers and music lovers gather for the concerts which span 47 days and nights in the city.
