    Hi Sarah-Jane,
    I’m so excited to have found your website and blog. I lived in Croatia for a year a looooonnnnnggg time ago (1986-1987), and I have just recently made plans to go back this coming January 2017. I am beyond excited. I look forward to reading through everything on your site and re-familiarizing myself with all things Croatian. 🙂

    Great website!! I was wondering if anyone knows a beach in Pula that has a cafe…

    Thank You!

    Hello! Your website is a treasure for a traveler! I just started to explore it, but it already feels like a one-stop shop 🙂 We already booked our flight to Croatia in October for 2 weeks. The purpose in two words is hiking and nature. On what e-mail may I connect you for more specific details ?
    Thanks, Anna

    What is the best way to get from Dubrovnik to Vis? We are staying in Dubrovnik for 5 nights and Vis for 5 nights, but now it looks like it will be tricky to get to Vis from Dubrovnik. Do we need to take the bus to Split? Can we catch a ferry midday, or will it be too late?

    • says

      There are no ferries from Dubrovnik to Vis thatI know of. You have to take the bus to Split and go via ferry to Vis from there. Happy travels.

    We will be travelling to Croatia in June and would like to know which local restaurants in Dubrovnik, Hvar, Korcula and Split can you suggest? Our accommodation is booked but we would like to go to interesting hubs to eat.

I do want to visit the Plitvice national park.Hvar and Dubrovnik but would it be possible?How do i go about planning my travel and stay? Would love to hear your thoughts and advise!

    Thanks heaps for this amazing site. I love the recipes and actually, all the information. I live in Melbourne and have referred the site to a number of people interested in visiting Croatia (my country of birth) and seeing the sights and wonders of the most beautiful country in the world. Seriously contemplating making the move over and making it home again. Once again, thanks
