Like heaven on Earth with its rich architectural heritage, stone palaces and medieval monasteries, Dubrovnik has once again become a holiday destination as well as UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Take the chance and visit the island of Mljet, not far from Dubrovnik. A third of its territory is protected as a national park and is an extraordinary place to find peace and tranquility. Its beauty attracts hikers, divers, bike-tourists and lovers of quietness and nature. Also, if you can go visit Lastovo island. Life is to short to miss out on the wide range of experienced it has to offer. There are plenty of free activities awaiting and Croatia will certainly provide you with the funniest and live life to the full. It’s not always easy to keep track of what’s possible around the world and probably better to keep it simple because we can miss out on things and either run out of time if not well planned due to lack of time to research.Croatia has more than 1000 islands, plenty ferries allow you a great holiday. In Hvar I found great luxury sailing opportunities, amazing cozy restaurants and terraces, night life up in the hill! Get ready to walk up and down but I assure great fun! In Split there is the Festival Ultra-Europe in Summer time. I did enjoy and plan to spend holiday around Croatia and the neighbor countries are also in the list to re-visit. If you’re in Italy is easy to get to the port in Ancona coming from Rome. Italians usually are in good mood on their holiday and you’ll meet good people and laugh all the way. From Portugal is still not the easist country to reach but is possible with Ryanair and it’s worth the way. As soon as possible I’ll update the blog with some alternatives. You’ll find introverted but beautiful and generous people in Croatia.
