Croatia continues to top the European summer holiday lists for US travelers but currently, it requires a minimum of two flights to get there.
American Airlines will launch the first direct route between the US and Croatia in almost thirty years. The route will operate from June 7 between Philadelphia and Dubrovnik and will run three times a week until September 27. The last time a nonstop route operated between the US and Croatia was with a Pan Am four-weekly service from New York to Zagreb, which ceased in 1991.
Another nonstop service from North America is an Air Transat flight from Toronto to Zagreb beginning on May 14, flying once a week on Tuesdays, before flying twice weekly, Tuesdays and Sundays, from June 2 to October 8.

Had a Blast
This tour was fantastic. We had a group of six for Tom's Game of Thrones tour of Dubrovnik. Tom is very knowledgeable and personable. If you are a GoT fan and you are in Dubrovnik, do not miss this tour. But even if you just want the normal tour of Dubrovnik, Tom is your man. We learned plenty about Dubrovnik and Croatia that had nothing to do with GoT--the GoT element just adds another element of fun. Just a great tour all around. Everyone in our group had a blast.
