...these were the stops of my journey through Croatia! Croatia has a lot to offer - there are very interesting sights, well preserved old city centres, crystal clear water and picturesque towns. Actually it has almost everything I need when I am on holiday :)!
The Old Town of Dubrovnik is simply breathtaking! It was declared as an Unesco world heritage sight. I hardly saw a modern building in the city centre - it is full of lovely stone houses with those round, red coloured roof tiles, which are typical for the south of Europe.

Actually you see a lot of very big yachts there in the harbour. Hvar town is beautiful, again with a lot of stone houses, venetian loggie, fine small shops, beautiful people, a decent nightlife- and crystal clear water. It is great for snorkelling as well! Be aware that there is no sandy beach, but rocks - and that you could meet the one or the other nudist colony on the small offshore islands :)). I also noticed, that prices in Hvar were higher than elsewhere in Croatia.
According to a 10 year old article of Condé Nast traveller´s magazine Hvar is one of the 10 most beautiful islands worldwide!
- Pros:Unesco world heritage sights, crystal clear sea

- In a nutshell:Just beautiful!
If you do not want to squat the cliffs :), I found Banje Beach as the closest beach to Dubrovnik Old Town. It is a small... more travel advice
