“Easily one of my favorite views in Europe can be found by walking around the walls of Dubrovnik”

By | About Croatia | No Comments

Easily one of my favourite views in Europe can be found by walking around the walls of Dubrovnik in southern Croatia. This picturesque city has become a very popular tourist destination in recent years and no doubt much of the credit can go to photographs of the jumbled red roofs of the Old Town with the sea in the background. It’s an easy matter to take a walk along the walls and snap several dozen photographs!

“The Croatian coast is becoming more and more an ideal place to spend a summer holiday.”

By | About Croatia | No Comments

The Croatian coast is well less know then the Spanish, French or Italian Riviera, but has nothing to envy its neighbours and is becoming more and more an ideal place to spend a summer holiday. Indeed the Makarska Riviera is the picture perfect place to enjoy a relaxing holiday, succumbing to the warm and crystal clear waters of the amazing Mediterranean sea, or going on excursions to admire the stunning scenery of hidden coves and hillside greenery. Croatia is also the perfect place to enjoy a more cultural experience, with numerous UNESCO listed treasures including the most famous places of Dubrovnik, Zagreb and Split.

By | About Croatia | No Comments

The pristine coastline of Croatia is one of the most beautiful in the world – and one of the most unspoilt in Europe. Either stay in one of the beautiful resorts that dot the coastline. The historic city of Dubrovnik has been beautifully restored in recent years. Originally built by the Venetians, the Pearl of the Adriatic has some great food and is a wonderful base from which to take the ferry to surrounding islands.

By | About Croatia | No Comments

There is a distinct buzz about Dubrovnik. Just ask American actress Ashley Judd, who was spotted here only last month filming for her new TV series, Missing, or Jay-Z and Beyonce, who avoided the traditional showbiz haunts of St Tropez and Portofino last year to spend their summer soaking up the sun on a yacht moored off the city’s coast. The charming Croatian port has certainly found its place on the map of A-list European holiday destinations.

“Croatia is one of Europe’s most unspoilt and timeless places to take a holiday.”

By | About Croatia | No Comments

Croatia has come a long way from its unsettled past and is now considered a safe and welcoming country. It’s also a much-loved and much-hyped holiday destination. Rapid development has been kept to a minimum here and Croatia with it’s bustling fishing ports, stone-built villages, quiet coves and historical towns is one of Europe’s most unspoilt and timeless places to take a holiday. Part of its appeal is its renowned dramatic and lengthy rugged coastline often known as the New Riviera. Dubrovnik, Lord Byron’s ‘pearl of the Adriatic’ deserves a special mention, it’s a unique city that has pristinely preserved its Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches, palaces and monuments.

According to A-list publications the likes of GQ, National Geographic and the New York Times, they are right on the mark. Not long ago, each heralded Croatia “the new Riviera.” The latest edition of the Lonely Planet guide to the country goes further, calling it the world’s hottest vacation destination. So, what’s the appeal? To begin, consider its landscape.

Southern Croatia has a stunning coastline  that spans 1,778 kilometres along the Adriatic and thousands of sun-drenched islands. Ancient towns offer a diversity of attractions including rich examples of Greek, Roman, Venetian and Slavic architecture. Croatia’s superb cuisine and increasingly renowned wines compare favourably to those of other Mediterranean locations. Finally, and perhaps most importantly for the young traveller, it’s relatively affordable.
