Dubrovnik! Restaurants, bars and port. The old town is UNESCO Cultural Heritage

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 night life up in the hill! Get ready to walk up and down but mostly to having 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 teach 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 reserved but beautiful people in Croatia.

  1. I am probably going on this road trip across the Balkans in 2 or 3 months from now, and Dubrovnik and Split are in my bucket list. I thought about spending a few days in those cities and when in Split visiting one or two islands, I googled about many of them and I was quite interested in Mljet and Drvenik Mali. I have checked the prices for the ferries online, and the prices are interesting. If you have any more suggestions for what to visit in these two cities or islands, let me know.

    1. Split is a must! From there I took the night bus to Dubrovnik and stayed with locals. Spend some time here. There’s a lot to see and do. I absolutely recommend Hvar. You’ll never regret.
