    Korcula

    by solopes Updated Mar 9, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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 Island of Hvar.

    by Maurizioago Updated Mar 1, 2015

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Several years ago I spent some days on Hvar island. I stayed in Hvar-town; the main town. I went there from Split by hydrofoil. The journey took about one hour and half.

    Hvar-town has a large main square with some shops and a lot of cafes. In the square there is the Cathedral of Saint Stjepan. It was built in stages during XVI and XVII centuries. The arsenal, with a theatre built in 1612 on the upper floor. A fortress; perched on a hill overlooks the square. It was built in the XVI century and restored in 1579 after a gun powder explosion. Now it houses a cafe and a small museum with a collection of amphorae.

    I also visited two nice villages on Hvar Island; Jelsa and Starigrad.

    Split

    by solopes Updated Dec 10, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Orebic

    by solopes Updated Dec 10, 2014

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Ston

    by solopes Updated Dec 10, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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 Region

    by solopes Updated Dec 10, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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!).

    Hvar

    by solopes Updated Dec 10, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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!)

    Trogir

    by solopes Updated Dec 10, 2014

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Vodice

    by solopes Updated Dec 10, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Make friends

    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 that Spanish are the most joyful people in the world, and we cannot get bored travelling with them.

    Sibenik

    by solopes Updated Dec 10, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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 than the expressly needed to visit St Jakob church, Unesco heritage, but I think that we saw the essential of the city.

    Zadar

    by solopes Updated Jun 20, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    The most beautiful town in Europe, they say.

    Dubrovnik.

    One of the most beautiful towns in Europe, I say.

    Either as a mandatory stop in a circuit, or as final or exclusive destination, this is one the European cities that no one should miss. You're invited to my Dubrovnik page.

    The wonders of peace

    by solopes Updated Dec 12, 2013

    The signs of war are still present in Croatia, even in Dubrovnik, but this precious city is important enough to justify the rush in cleaning and reconstructing.

    The historic buildings are back to their beauty, and only the new tiles in the roofs remember that, a few years ago, the beast of war almost smashed everything.

    The colourful roofs are a hymn to peace.
