Croatia

Croatia is Italy without the hype (and costs). 21st century travelers are in search for new utopias—think Paris in the 20s, Bali in the 70s, and Prague circa 1990. Amazing Croatia may be that next happening generational destination.

Capital Split is a port on the Adriatic Sea in the Republic of Croatia. It is the cultural and economic center of Dalmatia. In Split, the harbor front promenade called the Riva has been completely overhauled. The cafe umbrellas, concrete, and patchwork landscaping were replaced by a broad, sleek, bright-white public space. While some people enjoy this snazzy and slick people zone, many locals think it clashes with the Old Town.

Croatia’s top destination, Dubrovnik, is being re-discovered, including by cruise ship crowds. On a very busy day in summer, as many as 30,000 passengers — seven giant ships’ worth — inundate the little Old Town. Non-cruise travelers should do their sightseeing, especially walking around the City Wall, early or late to avoid the midday crush and heat. Dubrovnik is the  most magnificent and well preserved fortified city in the world, its history dates back to the 6th century.  The old city is fully encapsulated by its fortified walls stretching 1940 meter’s. The walls are at their highest are 25 meters and up to 6 meters thick, these impregnable walls have help maintain this cities history, culture and beauty.

The Nona Ana catamaran, which swiftly connects Dubrovnik to Mljet Island (with its national park), has extended its run. In the summer, it now also continues four times each week to the ever-popular island town of Korcula. Korcula is the birthplace of Marco Polo, that alone provides enough history to make this Island a unique destination.
