Oryx looks ahead to some of the best places to visit in June. Go on a cruise, visit Chicago’s public spaces, or explore Croatia’s historic sites.


Cruise west, north, and east

A cruise is the ideal way to visit several destinations. June’s summer sun warms the shores of the Mediterranean, but the full heat of summer is still some weeks away, making the shore excursions easier to enjoy, while cafés and restaurants have embraced al fresco dining. The west Mediterranean routes take in the ‘big three’: Italy, France, and Spain, but your trip could also take in an Atlantic foray to Morocco, or the islands of Greece. Heading much farther north, June embraces the midnight sun along the Scandinavian coastline, visiting the beautiful fjords, taking in the coastal regions of Russia and Germany along the way. Alternatively, experience the Far East on a cruise adventure that gets you up close with the exotic and fascinating coastal cities of Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand.


Summer in the Windy City

With Qatar Airways commencing flights to Chicago in April, plan a visit for June when the weather’s perfect and events are aplenty. Visit Chicago’s public spaces such as Grant Park, which features the Agora sculptural installation, the Christopher Columbus Monument, and one of the largest fountains in the world – Buckingham Fountain. Millennium Park hosts a collection of architecture, landscape design, and art, such as Cloud Gate, Anish Kapoor’s polished stainless steel elliptical sculpture, that provides the backdrop for concerts, exhibitions, tours, and family activities. Or head for the rides, attractions, and events at Navy Pier, including the Children’s Museum.

Croatian culture

Croatia has a stunning coastline and myriad historic attractions, whether you want to relax in the long, sunny days the country enjoys in June, or soak up some culture. Zagreb is its capital and largest city and a great base from which to explore the country. Visit the many UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the Old City of Dubrovnik on Croatia’s Adriatic Sea coast, and the historic city of Trogir, situated on a small island between the Croatian mainland and the island of Ciovo. Attractions in Zagreb itself include Zagreb Cathedral – the tallest building in Croatia – and the many museums and art galleries.
