    Dubrovnik Things to Do

    The (mandatory) walk on the walls of Dubrovnik has two different sides: the ocean side and the land side. Most people cover only the ocean side, from where its possible to see the most beautiful points of the city. It's the easiest section with not much to go up and down. To avoid the long lines, our guide made us enter in the southern...

  • Diocletian's Palace

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Split Things to Do

    The upper side of the palace is... a fabulous mess. A whole town has grown inside it, with some original remains, as the peristyle and Jupiter's temple, side by side with posterior constructions, some classified, as the cathedral built upon Diocletian's mausoleum. To complete the scene, the town lives there, in bars, shops and crowds wandering...

  • Beautiful Beaches and Coastline

    Hvar Things to Do

    Having no real beaches (at least at our sight), and with inviting waters, the artificial building of diving spots is the solution. Hvar seems to have good solutions, inviting lots of swimmers and embellishing the coastline, but we didn't see much.

  • Roman Amphitheater

    Pula Things to Do

    Promoted as the most complete Roman amphitheater, that may only apply to its external walls. The interior suffered the common transformations of most Croatian monuments, and shows almost nothing of its original structure. Much smaller than its brother, in Rome, it is a magnificent building, deserving the quick mandatory visit.

    One (good) idea to promote some monuments is their use in cultural or ludic events. The magnificence of the ambiance enhances the quality of the show, if well integrated in it. However, all events have their backdoor stage, and the mix of modern stuff with history, when seen out of the desired context, is sometimes unwelcome. I wished I had...

    Even if the castle itself is closed (and the museum within) you can still wander through its courtyard, and around its walls and grounds. Although the walls mostly date from the 16th-17th century the gateway through which one walks to/from the town square seemed to me to be older than the rest. Perhaps it dates from the earlier castle (13th...
