Everybody knows Croatia, thanks to famous pictures of Croatian national parks and Dubrovnik, this fortified coastal city that was used as a set for (several) movies and series… However, Croatia is not only about that! In addition to great national parks, Croatia has nearly a thousand islands and islets but also historical cities such as Osijek or Slunj… Do you want us to make you discover?
A land full of amazing national parks and exceptional waterfalls, charming coastal towns and beautiful islands?
Yes, but not only… Welcome to Croatia!
Hitchhiking levelQuite ok
Wild campingForbidden on the coastline
There are so many islands and islets in Croatia: say in a simple way, choice for visiting are endless! And to have visited some of them, we have to say that Croatian islands are all appealing… Choice is going to be difficult! For us, the opportunity to put our bags down in Orebic led us to visit the Peljesac peninsula and Korcula island. This small detour in our route plan was well worth it: a quieter destination, but just as fantastic!
During our Croatian journey, it was impossible for us to miss the Dalmatian coast and its beautiful cities such as Zadar, Sibenik, Split, Ston (and Mali Ston) nor to avoid the must-see Dubrovnik, made famous thanks to the cinematic art. If we didn’t have the opportunity to visit Zadar and its famous sea organ, we could really enjoy our trip along the Adriatic Sea!
On the menu of traditional Balkan recipes, you will find a lot of meat – cooked, marinated in sauce, barbecued… It took a lot of effort to adapt traditional recipes with vegetarian alternatives – but most of all, to allow us to enjoy the Balkan food, where cooking skills are perfectly combined with good, locally grown products!
