I’ve seen a lot of beautiful places in my time – oceans, mountains, jungles, and also lakes. However, the Plitvice National Park is one of the most beautiful sceneries I’ve ever laid eyes on. So come on, let me guide you through the National Park of Plitvice and awe at lakes and pools in their dreamlike colors.
Since Zagreb is located in the northern center of the country and quite far from the coast, the city is not only geographically off the tourist tracks. Many visitors simply skip the city and head straight to Croatia’s gorgeous shores and islands. Yet, it is precisely the opportunity to experience real Croatian city life that makes a visit to Zagreb, Croatia’s capital, so interesting – in contrast and as a cultural complement to the beautiful places alongside the Istrian and Dalmatian coast.This Way to the Whole Story ->
Hence, I was looking forward to going to Poreč.
It has this Italian history and a very cute, atmospheric little town with incredibly beautiful architecture. Most importantly, it’s on the coast and has beaches.This Way to the Whole Story ->
Let me guide you to Cres, a truly magical island in the Adriatic Sea.
Just an hour from the Croatian mainland, you’ll find unspoiled nature, coastal towns, and clear waters.This Way to the Whole Story ->
Krka, green paradise nestled between the hills and mountains of Central Dalmatia. Here, even the way can be the goal, since a picturesque trail connects the National Park with the idyllic small coastal town of Skradin. So let me guide you through impressively rich habitats full of endemic bushes, trees, grasses, and wallflowers.This Way to the Whole Story ->
Let me guide you to Split, another one of these many Croatian cities that seem to have it all: Rich history presented in a well-preserved, breathtakingly beautiful old town. Colorful farmers’ markets sell fresh produce to restaurants that prepare the most delish meals. Lush woods as well as nice beaches – and all that within the city limits. And a posh harbor – the gateway to splendid destinations beyond the sea.
Nevertheless, visiting Split, I had to check it out in a….split second.This Way to the Whole Story ->
Guide to Dubrovnik, the Lustrous Pearl of Dalmatia. It was the grand finale of my bus road trip along the Adriatic coast.
Despite the large crowds and the flaws that come with tourist sellouts that overshadowed my stay a bit.This Way to the Whole Story ->
Everybody who has been to Croatia is just raving – about the food in general and the special treats such as extra virgin olive oil and big, aromatic truffles in particular.
About the beautiful sceneries and the clear waters that are one of Europe’s last dolphin refuges. But I was stubborn. When everybody tries to talk me in one direction, I turn my head and walk the other way. My mental age is 13.
And then, I had to face a very stressful Autumn and therefore, I needed a destination somewhere in Europe. A place that would save me from culture shock. Hence, I renounced my plans on going around half the globe to Japan and decided to spend September in Croatia.
Since it’s much closer. Since it’s much cheaper. And a teeny tiny bit since everybody who has been there being just raving about it.This Way to the Whole Story ->
The other day at a party, I overheard a conversation. Two people were talking about travelling, and the girl said: “You know, when travelling, I also enjoy just being in a place”. She could have been talking about Rijeka, a place where the visitor can indeed just enjoy the Istrian lifestyle.
Actually, I’ve found that great – just being. No racing through cute alleys full of historic buildings. No waiting in line at museums. No pushing on boats and squeezing in vans. Just being in a place.This Way to the Whole Story ->
