So you have some ideas of places you’d like to visit in Croatia but no idea how to organise them into a workable itinerary that will add up to a holiday? Croatia Traveller is here to help!

The celebrated cathedral has been fully restored and maybe even over-restored. Parts of the facade looked just too new. I was also surprised at the 15HRK fee to enter but shouldn’t have been; it’s a bargain at twice the price. The large parking lot outside the Old Town was nearly full even though parking is a steep 15HRK/hour, the most expensive on … Continue reading →
