    I am in love with that crystal water of Brela Beach.
    I am new to that place and I have never heard of it before!

    I want to wear that fish head as a hat. I don’t know why…

    I’ve heard enough about Croatia, but never wanted to visit it. Is there any essential difference between Croatia and Spain (or Italy)?

      Hi John – You bet, the real beauty of Europe is that every country is so vastly different. In fact even cities (especially around Italy) have different foods and cultures to explore. In my opinion, there is a huge difference between pretty much all the countries in Europe.

    When I think that Croatia is not that far from Italy, after all, and I’ve never visited… I must definitely include it in my future trips to discover new places in Europe.

      It’s definitely a nice spot to visit, we really enjoyed it! Although I must admit, it wasn’t as budget friendly as I had hoped.

        I’m always surprised when I read this as am from Australia and have visited Croatia a number of times as love the country. Hotels maybe priced similarly to other parts of Europe but B&B accommodation is huge in Croatia and cheap. Also food and drinks are three times cheaper than Australia as long as your not eating in old town Dubrovnik. I think people expect eastern European prices in Croatia. They are but Croatia is not Romania or Serbia , it is the 15th most visited country in the world.Not bad for a country of 4.3 Million people.

    Hey Tom, did you take the Jadrolinija car ferry when you were island hopping? Were there other islands you would recommend to stop by?

    P/S: I love all your articles! And this particular one has definitely inspired and changed my Eastern Europe backpacking plan to spend more time in Croatia!! Thanks so much for sharing!

    Nice photos of Split! Luckily, the fish market is still there, just the way it looks on your photos. We agree with you that Split feels much more real than Dubrovnik. Although pretty, Dubrovnik is definitely too touristy, and way overcrowded.

      Dubrovnik is great in may, June or September when not tourist season peak of July and August. However Venice is also very touristy but cities like this and Dubrovnik are busy because they are special and for me the crowds become irrelevant. I’m part of the crowd and I’m there because cities like Venice and Dubrovnik are one of a kind
