Croatia Favorites: 209 reviews and 195 photos
Favorite thing: Slavonija ans Baranja comprise the bread basket of Croatia, and so white bread, flat cakes and many other cakes filed with walnuts, with poppy seeds or plum jam, have been baked here since ancient times, made from the most representative pastry made from green wheat.
Pasta, potato, beans, dairy dishes and fat meat dishes (cottage cheese with sour cream, dried cheese). Such types of food were once cooked to provide the energy required for heavy work, although these days their preparation is considered too time consuming and requiring too much effort.
Favorite thing: Visit TROGIR, an historical town on a small island; a cathedral from the 13th century with the famous portal of the master Radovan, part of UNESCO's World Heritage.
Fondest memory: The town of Trogir is situated 30 km north of Split, don't miss it when around.
Plitvicka jezera pod ledom
Favorite thing: Plitvicka Jezera National Park is one of the most beautiful natural wonders in Europe. In a valley between high forested mountains lies, one bellow another, a string of sixteen beautiful lakes of a crystal blue-green colour. They are fed by many small streams and brooks and spill over into each other in foaming cascades and thundering waterfalls. Over the millennia, the waters of these lakes have dissolved the limestone rock and carved out the valleyin which they now lie.
Fondest memory: To see more about this wonder, visit my traveloques and the Plitvicka Jezera page.
Favorite thing: Visit the pearl of Croatia, DUBROVNIK and its surroundings. The medieval town of Dubrovnik, which is surrounded by the high and well preserved city walls, is a must see when visiting Croatia.
Fondest memory: Dubrovnik is one of the best preserved medieval fortified cities on the Mediterranean; the Old Town is a part of UNESCO's World Heritage.
Favorite thing: There are over one thousand of islands in the Adriatic, most of them completely deserted today. The bigger islands, except for the island of Vis, are located only a few milles away from the mainland and very well connected by the frequent ferry-lines.
Fondest memory: During the year, the life on the islands isn't very easy. Sometimes, under the strong wind called "bura", most of the islands might be isolated for days. It is advisable to avoid traveling to the islands during the winter season.
On the other hand, spending your summer holidays there is strongly recommended.
Favorite thing: There are hundreds of lighthouses along the Adriatic coast like this one called Mulo.
On some of this lighthouses, located deep into the Adriatic Sea, you can spend your summer holidays far away from the bussy towns and enjoying in endless tranquility.
Fondest memory: There are 1185 islands, islets and cliffs on the Adriatic coast, at the same time there are thousands of small and big lighthouses.
Favorite thing: Visit KRKA National park near town of Šibenik. Deep canyons cut into calciferous plateaus; lakes; among the multitude of waterfalls, Skradinski Buk and Roški Slap are the most prominent. Between them is the islet of Visovac, with a Franciscan monastery, situated at the spot where the river widens into a lake.
Favorite thing: Zagreb is the capital town of Croatia, at the same time it is the biggest town with almost one million of inhabitants.
The name Zagreb is used for the land behind Medvedgrad Mountain in 1094.&cr
Fondest memory: Zagreb has a thousand faces, it is professional yet relaxed, modern with a dash of a thousands years of longevity, cultural and economic, urban and adventurous, it is the city you just have to know better.
