Hvar is Croatia’s response to Greece’s Santorini & Mykonos, and to the French riviera. It is a super fun destination, which is best experienced during the weekends, which livens up, as the streets bustle with the upbeat energized crowd.
A day in Split
Split, is a fortified city with the Diocletian Palace being its nucleus. What was once a grand retirement palace of a Roman Emperor, has now translated into lanes of make-shift ice-cream shops, residential quarters, boutiques and cafes. Yet the walk within the fortified palace satiates the intrigue and reflects the old world charm.
As the bus approached the gorgeous border of Istria, the very sight of the endless rows of sun-kissed grapevine, the big blue burst of cotton balls floating in the sky and the sultry smell of the sea, filled us with excitement. The five and a half hour bus journey from Ljubljana was soon forgotten, as we docked into the beautiful country of Croatia.
A gem in the Adriatic, with sapphires and emeralds crafted in waves, crimson roof tops and the valleys singing the lavender lull. Croatia is a symbiotic experience of succulent delicacies and sunny pebble beaches. Small dreamy towns in Croatia feel like entries from a fairy tale. The pictures don’t justify its beauty, words don’t either. This is just an attempt to come close.
