Traveling through Croatia - My Photos
Where to go in Croatia?
For those of you that have never been you have to go. Here is an itinerary that I promise you will love. (Keep in mind you can flip the itinerary around as well)
#1 Fly into Split, spend time visiting:
Diocletian's Palace Old Town (general); Around the Center Cathedral & Bell Tower; Grgur Ninski statue; Riva & Harbour area Surroundings (mainland); Surrounding Islands Museums & Galleries; Pjaca (Narodni Trg / Square)
#2 Take a ferry out to the islands: (Brac, Vis, Hvar, etc)
Beautiful Beaches and Coastline Venetian Streets, Houses, and Architecture Amazing Views St. Stephen's Cathedral The Fortress (Citadel) Just outside Hvar town Hvar Harbour Trg sv. Stjepana (Main Square) Franciscan Monastery Day Trip to Blue Grotto and Vis Island
#3 Ferry back to Split and drive to Dubrovnik. (Incredible drive, very safe and beautiful places to stop along the way)
#4 Arrive in Dubrovnik:
City walls; Old City; The Stradun Beaches Gates of Pile; Big Onofrije's Fountain; Fort Lovrijenac; Walking; exploring; Clock Tower; Rector's Palace; Day trips to Korcula; Mljet:
I would advise everyone to get a lonely planet book and follow some of the top things to do in each place. Also, keep in mind that if you need to take a short trip you can just fly into dubrovnik, drive to the surrounding islands, venture off to montenegro and just take up as much of the scenery, beaches and history as you can.
As far as places to stay I would open a travel book and stay somewhere that is within your budget. (You'll want to spend money elsewhere) However, if at all possible you should stay as close as you can to the old town city walls in Dubrovnik. (That way you can walk almost everywhere)
I have attached a map of Croatia to give everyone an idea.
Have fun and safe travels!
