10 reasons why you have to spend your next holiday in Croatia

Villa Ana Bol, Brac, Croatia
  1. Food

Try burek with cheese or meat at a bakery or get it from the supermarket. If you like octopus, have a black risotto. A more savoury dish is cevapcici with chips and ajvar.

  1. Small islands

I mentioned already in one of my articles before that Croatia’s islands can also be called the European Maledives. Visit Brač, Hvar or any other island. Every city has beautiful islands around.

  1. Nature

Don’t miss one of the two famous national parks, Plitvice Lake or Krka, when you are in Zadar or Split. Adriatic4You offers great trips to both parks.

  1. Prices

Croatia is not as expensive as other summer destinations in Europe. Restaurants are much cheaper as well as supermarkets.

  1. Uber

Croatia has Uber since a few months, which is totally awesome!! Heading from one place to the other costs almost the same as taking the bus. A ride, which takes about 10 minutes costs about 5€. So don’t forget to download the app before your trip.

  1. People

Croatians are very nice. You do not have to be afraid if you travel alone. I have been on my own and I always felt safe!

Sailing Croatia Split

  1. Sunsets

You must have seen at least one sunset in Croatia. Zadar’s sunset at the sea organs is very famous but you could also enjoy it on a sunset sailing trip or even just at the beach.

I promise you that you will never get bored in Croatia. There are so many activities offered such as hiking, biking, riding, sailing, water sports, day trips and many more.

  1. Game of Thrones

All Game of Thrones fans have the opportunity to see where their favourite TV show was taken. Walk through King’s Landing and think yourself back in the time of the show.

  1. Lovely family-run apartments

My last stop was in Mlini, which is a 10 min drive away from Dubrovnik. Villa Mlini has lovely apartments and double rooms next to the beach. I really loved the little and comfortable balcony with sea view.

My room was very clean and I slept well in the big bed. The owners are very nice and will always help you if you need anything.

In addition, Mlini is not overloaded with tourists and you have so many little beaches close to Villa Mlini. Although, Mlini is a much smaller place at the coast than Dubrovnik, you will find many places to eat and a supermarket. I recommend to take the ferry to Dubrovnik instead of taking the bus. It takes about 15 minutes longer but you will have a wonderful time on the boat with a stunning view. At the beaches in Mlini, you will find many places to rent a boat, kayak, paddleboat or to do any water activities.

Do you wanna see MORE than the others in Dubrovnik?

Hotel More Dubrovnik Lapad

Dubrovnik, the place of old history, narrow alleys, beautiful panorama and Games of Thrones fans.  During the summer, most of the places in Dubrovnik are very crowded and you can only move slowly through the city. Therefore, I have the following tips for you!

  1. Stay a bit outside the centre

Hotel More is situated in Lapad, which is just 3.5 km away from Dubrovnik’s downtown. The five-star hotel has plenty opportunities to relax in it and in the surrounding area.

You will not starve if you spend one day at the hotel’s beach. The private beach is located at the Cave bar, which serves great cocktails and food. In the evening, the Cave bar looks fascinating with its decorative stone wall and lounge furniture.

For those who prefer to stay at the pool, you will find a pool at the fifth floor with a whirlpool bath.

Restaurant More offers not just a delicious breakfast in the morning but also lunch and dinner.

I could have stayed in my comfortable bed the whole day if the breakfast would not have been so tasty.

As I like doing sports during my holidays, I was glad about the gym in the hotel and the wellness area for chilling out afterwards.

  1. Swim against the stream

Visit Dubrovnik’s old town early in the morning so that you can enjoy it and avoid the crowds. If you cannot make it that early try not to go to the main attractions such as the city wall. If you walk to the cable railway around the city walls, you will have a great view above it, too. Additionally, you do not have to pay around 15€ for walking on the city wall.

  1. Make a reservation for dinner

It is hard to get a place at the good places in the evening. So make a reservation to avoid seeking for a good spot.

  1. Take a cruise to the islands around

Don’t miss the beautiful islands around Dubrovnik. You can book a tour almost everywhere in the centre.

  1. Take a picture with the lovely parrots

It only costs 3 Euro, which is definitely worth it to take a picture with the parrots in the city centre. You will find the parrots around 200m after the main entrance.
