it tells of the sea life in the waters in the Adriatic sea that surrounds Dubrovnik also of the local plant & tree species as well it has some whale bones & a hippo's skull plus some interesting dioramas & photo's & a good movie presentation about Shark species
In Zagreb one of the popular beers is Ozujsko.
At an outdoor restaurant a half-liter bottle (big bottle) of beer was 15hrk (or about 2€ as of June '13, cheap, cheap!).
Lovely, light crispy taste, assertive without being pushy, what a delight!
there are plenty of interesting things to see & plenty to learn at this small but excellent museum that is Dubrovnik's Maritime museum from charts & models to information from ancient times up to present in regards merchant & steam ships to the faith of Dubrovnik registered ships that were caught up in WWI & WWII .also some good sea faring paintings , instruments & equipment on show ..well worth a visit...
Accessible from several points, this fantastic island is a must see, forbidden to miss.
Korcula is a place to visit and to go, or a place to stay and...to rest.
The second biggest town of Croatia is in a privileged situation to work as a hub of the visitors of central Croatia.
Sibenik, Krka, Trogir, Makarska and Hvar are less than one hour distant, and the town of Split itself has plenty of reasons to attract visitors, but I must confess that we had only a couple of hours to it.
No, unless I missed something, Orebic is not very important and beautiful.
It only shares with Ston the circumstance of being the towns of the Peljesac peninsula, where I caught some of the most beautiful views of all the trip.
Located in the wonderful Peljesac peninsula, this small town of Ston surprises by its long and strange walls, from where the sights spread over the salt mines.
Makarska is referred as the Croatian Riviera and it is beautiful, but we just rushed across it.
It was enough, anyway, to see its landscape and seashore (not so pretty as Peljesac, in my opinion!).
One of the favorite spots for youngsters, Hvar it's a pleasant place, with good conditions for bathing.
We only saw the main city, but my sons and friends spent a couple of days in the opposite side of the island, in a cheap and very nice place (So far, I couldn't convince them to write in VT!)
Almost a miniature of Dubrovnik, Trogir is a wonder.
Easy to visit, it's another mandatory point in Central Croatia. The best of all are the views from the sea.
This ocean resort near Sibenik makes me confuse.
The thousands of people enjoying the night showed the popularity of Vodice, but in front of my hotel, swimming was a nightmare.
I couldn't check the beach, but I don't believe it would be possible to attract so many people if it didn't have the necessary conditions. Anyway, I must confess that Vodice was my worst experience in Croatia.
Travelling is always a pleasure, but it is better when things work well with all the group.
We were the only Portuguese in a Spanish group, but quickly there were no strangers, and joy was the law.
Nice fellows! Though my Spanish is awful, my experience says tha Spanish are the most joyful people in the world, nd we cannot get bored travelling with them.
Sibenik merges the advantage of being a very beautiful town, with its situation by the National Park of Krka, another absolutely must see.
We didn't have much more time in Sibenik then the expressly needed to visit St Jakob church, Unesco heritage, but I think that we saw the essential of the city.
One of the highlights of Central Croatia, Zadar is a must see, halfway from Rijeka and Split.
Standing in an island, if you are not travelling by boat as we did, you may book a ferry in several places, but... don't miss it.
When you are in Croatia....Go Sailing!!
I think it's the best way to get around, bu be carefull - it's addictive:)
You can charter a boat with or without skipper, but my advice - even if you do sail yourself - is to book a skipper. The Skippers in Croatia are very proffessional and really good to show the best places wether you want to party, experience the amazing nature, learn to sail gourmet eating etc.
Croatia is absolutely amazing - I was there by coensidence the first time - and go back now to sail every year in September.
I think It's perfect to go there "out of season", ex. May or September - the weather is usually pretty warm..
So if you havent been in Croatia - go!
