I have visited Dubrovnik and absolutely loved wandering around the old walls and the hidden side streets. One evening I came across a quaint hidden walkway which took me through to a cliff side bar (Buza Bar Dubrovnik) which has the most fantastic views across the Adriatic Sea and its also a very peaceful setting for enjoying a glass of wine.
Being a bit of a history enthusiast, I just loved the feel of how old the buildings were, it really felt like I was stepping back in time and the walls had so many stories to tell. I also really enjoyed getting the cable car to Syd Hill for a meal and to enjoy the views of Dubrovnik during sunset- just Beautiful. Another wonderful experience during my visit was enjoying a glass of wine with a fresh fish plater overlooking the harbour watching the fishing boats.
Being a fan of Game of Thrones, I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to take a tour to some of the filming locations used in the series which was an absolute must-do experience.
My favourite hotel in Croatia has got to be the Splendida Palace. Its located within steps of a the Unesco Palace of Diocletian's Palace and is a lovely boutique hotel with a unique feel to it! I can’t wait to return to Croatia visit some of its beautiful islands such as split and Hvar.
Croatia is a beautiful country and has so much to offer, from the amazing cities on the mainland to the harbour towns on the incredible islands as well as some areas of outstanding natural beauty in the national parks.
My favourite place is the stunning island of losinj in the Kvarner region (known as the island of Vitality), for some this Island may seem a little out the way but once you cross over to Cres from the mainland it’s only about an hour and a half to Mali losinj (one of the two main towns). Here there are two amazing hotels in Čikat bay, the Bellevue (which is more modern) and then the Boutique Hotel Alhambra (made up of 2 villas and a modern wing) these hotels allow you to relax in beautiful surrounds whilst being still close by to the town and harbour which boasts a nice selection of bars and restaurants.
