Croatia is simply one of Europe’s best kept secrets, however, with the scars of its recent history very much healed, this interesting country with its Mediterranean ambience and truly stunning natural beauty is on the discerning traveller’s map once again.
Dubrovnik is a delight, almost a living museum, medieval in character with numerous baroque churches and where life spills spontaneously onto its pedestrianised marble streets. The Dalmatian coastline is legendary: one of the most dramatic in Europe and extending for hundreds of miles. Whilst this is a unique country, the Croatians appear very much Mediterranean in character: effervescent, friendly and open. The cuisine really is superb too, heavily influenced by nearby Greece and Italy; you will find exquisite fish like fresh sea bass, tuna and bream, excellent meats and Mediterranean vegetables. Then we visit Montenegro, one of the world’s newest countries yet reminiscent of the Mediterranean 30 years ago: stunning coastline and centuries old fishing villages with tiny streets, Byzantine churches and market squares with stalls creaking from the weight of colourful local produce. Still so wonderfully undiscovered, it is a journey back in time.
