Since then, we recommend the Balkans to anyone we meet because this region has the advantage of bringing together everything you need for a perfect holiday : fortified ancient cities, small cobbled streets, the sun, […]

Dubrovnik is fairly known as “the pearl of the Adriatic“. The city is surrounded by crystaline turquoise blue water and the old town and its buildings are absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately the city is crowded with tourists during the day and even at night during the high season. This is definitely not a destination for broke […]

We enjoyed the Croatian food, which is typically Mediterranean with lots of pasta, pizza and risotto as in Italy, as well as olive oil, garlic, herbs and fish. The pizzas are also very cheap in Croatia compared to Western Europe, and are delicious! As in Italy, you’ll also find delicious ice creams, nicely decorated. Try […]

We stayed only a few hours in the Croatian capital. The coastal towns of Split, Zadar and Dubrovnik are more worth exploring than the capital. The renovated downtown has no charm, but there is some historical monuments to discover. The city center is relatively small and there are many pedestrian streets. How to get to […]

We arrived on September 12th! Before or after it is completely dead! The nightlife in Novalja (Pag island) The clubs […]

You can also enjoy the many shops in a beautiful setting in the city center (the main street that leads to the church of St. Donat and Cathedral of St. Anastasia).The city […]
