17 things not to miss in Croatia





Split is the main transport hub for Croatia - the best jumping off point when planning to visit the many beautiful islands in the Adriatic Sea.

You can take a bus or taxi from the Airport to the Split Port (the bus is more economical but involves a bit of waiting while it fills up before leaving).

Split Old Town is easy to access from the Port and there are some really stunning streets that one can explore in the Old Town. We had a couple of hours to explore the Old Town before getting our ferry to the island of Hvar.

Things you would like to explore if you are short of time:
The Riva: This is the main Waterfront of Split, and it is the first thing you will see as you approach the Old Town. Split's waterfront runs the length of the Old Town area.
It is one of the most attractive and interesting public places in the city of Split. It stands in front of the Diocletian's Palace, which is another stunning place to explore.
Views from the Riva across the Split harbor are simply magnificent. So when you are in Split take a walk across the Riva, and if you have time, do enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.

Alleyways of Split Old Town:
Old Town in Split is a jumble of little streets and cobblestone lanes. You will love to get lost around these lanes and explore hidden nooks and crannies filled with history and charm.

The Diocletian Palace:
The Old Town of Split resides within the walls of this Roman Palace.This palace is one of the most well-preserved and impressive monuments of Roman Architecture still existing in the world. It was built in the 4th century from White stone transported from the island of Brâc. The old city is a UNESCO Heritage site, and is also famous as a setting for the popular series 'Game of Thrones'.

Terrace Vidilica : Restaurant Teraca Vidilica has one of the best locations in town due to its unique location that overlooks the entire city. Located on Marijan Hill, this place is only a 10- min walk from the center of town. You can easily visit this place even if you are short of time.

Never Do This In Croatia ???????? 5 Things You DON'T DO In Hrvatska

In today's Croatia travel vlog, I discuss this topic: Never Do This In Croatia / Don't Do This in Hrvatska. Hrvatska is another name for Croatia in case you're wondering.

This is not a Croatia travel guide but a list of things not to do in Croatia. Most of the footage in this video is from Split Croatia, the island of Hvar and Dubrovnik Croatia. However, I spent most of my time in Split Croatia. I did have a couple Croatians help me come up with this list!

Croatia is one of the best places to visit in my opinion. You have beaches, cities, mountains, and lots of castles and old world charm. When you visit Croatia there are certain things that you probably shouldn't do. I got some input from my Croatia friends to make this list.

Never leave trash on the beach. Croatia is a beautiful country with amazing beaches. Croatians have done a really good job keeping their beaches very clean compared to many other places. There are public trash cans every where and they are are picked up regularly. There is no excuse for littering, when there is always a trashcan within walking distance at Croatian beaches.

Never talk about politics. There are lots of sensitive topics around the war with Serbia and the break up of Yugoslavia. Most families were impacted by the war in some way, so these are very personal subjects. It’s better not to get into these discussions.

Never forget to tip. I was so accustomed to not tipping in Asia that I didn’t tip at the first Croatian place I ate. I later learned that 10% is customary and you can bump that up to 15% for exceptional service. This is a great travel tip Croatia!

In most cases, never take the train in Croatia. Take the bus instead. Unlike a lot of Europe, Croatia’s train system isn’t the best. They don’t run very often. For instance there are only two train times to go from Zagreb to Split (or Dubrovnik Croatia). And they take a long time. The train ride from Zagreb to Split takes almost 6 hours when you can just drive it in 4 of even better take a 45 min flight that’ll only cost around $50 US dollars. But don’t fret - the busses are great!

Never call Croatia Yugoslavia or the former Yugoslavia. Similar to discussing politics, this is a sensitive subject. This would be like calling the US, the former England. Yes, we were a part of England before, but we are not the former England. Same thing. Croatia is Croatia….Yugoslavia was another country that doesn’t exist any longer.

#croatia #hrvatska #splitcroatia

This is HVAR. Croatia's hilltop fortress town.

We visit the incredibly beautiful Croatian Island of Hvar- and explore Hvar Town. We spend the day walking around and exploring the streets and waterfront. We come across the Hvar Cathedral, or Cathedral of St. Stephen. We then make the long trek up to the Fortress of Hvar that looks over the entire town. We finish our day with locally made sandwiches while on the waterfront.


City of Hvar:
The city of Hvar is a unique fusion of luxurious Mediterranean nature, rich cultural and historical heritage, and mundane, tourist present.It is situated in picturesque nature, facing the southern, side of the world that has given it all Mediterranean attraction and cheerfulness; facing sea, that gave it splendid and repeatable history, Hvar is an inexhaustible treasury of the scenery, atmosphere and adventure.Its name derives from the Greek name for island and town, that stood where today Stari Grad (Hvar became an island’s centre in 13th century) stands - PHAROS.

Hvar gained glory and power during middle ages being an important port within the Venetian, naval empire. Today, it is centre of island’s tourism and one of the favourite destinations in Dalmatian riviera - a town of smiling and courteous people, who are almost only dedicated to tourism.

Featured in this video:

St. Stephen’s Catedral: The Cathedral is dedicated to St. Stephen, a pope and martyr, the protector of the Diocese and the city of Hvar. The renaissance bell-tower of the Cathedral and Hvar’s other bell towers (St. Mark, Franciscan and the ruined one of St. Venerande) are considered to be the nicest ones in Dalmatia. Hvar’s Cathedral preserves many valuable items and paintings of famous painters like Stefano Celesti, Palma Junior and the Spanish painter Juan Boschettus, but the most renowned painting is definitely Madonna, an example of the proto-Venetian art and one of the oldest in Dalmatia originating back in 1220.

Hvarska Pjaca (Square of St. Stephen), Cathedral of St. Stephen and episcopal palace, Hvar. If you visit Hvar, all the streets will lead you to Hvarska pjaca (Hvar’s square), the centre of city’s public and social life and the largest square in Dalmatia. The eastern side of the square is surrounded by the Cathedral of St. Stephen that was built on the foundations of an early-Christian church from the 6th century and that acquired its present appearance in the 16th and 17thcentury.

Fortress in Hvar Town: Looming high above the town and lit with a golden glow at night, this medieval castle occupies the site of an ancient Illyrian settlement dating from before 500BC. The views looking down over Hvar and the Pakleni Islands are magnificent, and well worth the trudge up through the old-town streets. Once you clear the town walls it's a gently sloping meander up the tree-shaded hillside to the fortress – or you can drive to the very top.

Traveling To Croatia, The 40 Hour Commute

Watch my exhausting 40 plus hour commute from Sicily, Italy to Dubrovnik Croatia. We had to take a train that boarded a ferry and then continued on to Rome. Then we caught another train from Rome to Ancona. At that point we boarded a Ferry and crossed the Adriatic Sea and made port in Split Croatia. Finally, we took a four hour bus ride to the beautiful city of Dubrovnik. Was it worth it? Yes! Would I do it again? Probably. But only because I am a glutton for punishment.
