Its location is in the center (Izmedjuu polaca 11) and I really advice any tourist to stay away from it.

    Korcula Things to Do

    One of the highlights of the island is the house where Marco Polo seems to have lived. For the moment it is only a ruin, with the recuperation works disturbed by the flocks of tourists that constantly invade the place. So far, nothing in particular to see, just a detail in the walk across the small city.

    Mljet National Park Sports & Outdoors

    Another next thing you will absolutely enjoy doing is cycling - and since you're not allowed to enter lake areas by car or motorbike unless you're guest somewhere within its vicinity, it is great way to cover the distances. If you like doing it faster than walking, of course. Those paved roads only allow to take mini buses from NP office (beside...

    Lokrum has some places to sit down and buy a drink. However, prices are comparable to those on Dubrovnik's city walls. It is therefore recommended to buy most drinks in Dubrovnik and only buy those drinks at Lokrum which you want to consume in a café or bar.

    Ston Things to Do

    Distracted by the beauties of Peljesac coast, we suddenly arrive to a small town, with a long wall perched in the hills.

I passed the test, climbing to the top, where the award is... good views, and the pleasure to fell in good condition.

  • Orasac's Profile Photo

    by Orasac Updated Jun 26, 2007

    Because Zaton is located on a narrow bay, the water almost stands still.
    Now the government is working on a better drainage, but before some time and also now the dirty water of the households in Zaton dump their water in the bay. Because of the water is standing still, the sea can't wash everything clear.

    But no worries, you can't see it, it doesn't smell bad and it's not unhealthy. The dirty water is not dumped on the coastline, but deeper in the bay.
    Government authorities frequently check the waterquality.

    It's still of moderate quality, but it's less than the other areas around Dubrovnik.
    So don't think it's a real threat or danger.
