Adriatic Sea, Croatia
save place
Sunset over the Adriatic sea in Croatia...
Although more and more tourists are getting to discover the beauties of this picturesque country, it succeeded to avoid mass tourism so far. Croatia was a popular holiday spot for the tourists of the former East European socialist block's countries (with that little difference that back in those decades it was part of Yugoslavia), but its reputation in tourism is much older than that. It reaches back to the Austro-Hungarian Empire's golden days, that lasted until World War 1, and had a renaissance in the 1920's-1930's, and continued even while World War 2 was already devastating the continent. Like many others, my grandparents also spent their honeymoon there. No matter what season it is, my boyfriend and I drive down to Croatia 4-5 times a year, mostly to spend short weekends in one of their beautiful towns, and sometimes to rent a house on a tiny island for a week, and just to get away from the 21st century... Fascinating landscapes, medieval villages, elegant towns of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, remnants of the Roman Empire, great seafood, countless lovely restaurants, lots of vineyards and good wine...
