I recently returned from Croatia. What an incredible country! I began in Split and stayed at the park Hotel. The hotel is in a perfect location close to the Adriatic Sea and within walking distance of Palace of Diocletian. There are wonderful restaurants and amazing areas to explore. I also explored the beautiful islands of Croatia. The ferry system is more than adequate and worked very well. First stop, the island of Brac where I stayed in Bol. Bol is a quaint village that has a lot to offer. It has one of the most beautiful beaches in the country and many people travel here to enjoy all types of water & land sports. Not to mention their museums, galleries, and traditional architecture. Next stop, Hvar where I stayed at the centrally located Adriana Hotel. Hvar is very popular with the jetsetters, and many young people. You also have the opportunity to hire a boat and explore the many islands off shore. A must visit is the Blue Caves! Next on the itinerary was Korcula, the birth place of Marco Polo. it was about an hour ferry ride from Hvar. Here I stayed in the Hotel Korcula which was wonderful! The rooms, and the service are incredible as well as it's central location. A must is to visit the vineyards, olive groves, and the many small villages that make up this island. Lastly, I ended my trip in Croatia in Dubrovnik! This is the most prominent and well known location in Croatia. Especially, due to the popularity with the Games of Thrones series. I stayed at the beautiful Hotel Excelsior. This hotel is centrally located and close to many restaurants, shops, and beautiful cobblestoned streets to explore.Croatia was everything I had hoped it would be, and much more! It is still very affordable and the locals appreciate having people visit their country. it should be a must on everyone's travel list! If you have any questions, or would like to book a trip to Croatia then please contact me! It would be my pleasure to assist with the arrangements!
