Secret Dalmatia

I had come to Dalmatia at age 4. I remember swimming in the Mediterranean, getting stung by a bee, and seeing an almond tree for the first time. I'm glad I had the chance to get back and make new, grown up memories. Unbelievable food, check. Amazing wines, check. Old rocks and more history that you'll ever retain, check. Lovely locals, check. Lakes with the most intense shades of blue, turquoise and green, check. I could go on and on ...but you'll just have to see for yourself!

Ul. Antuna Mihanovića 1, 10000, Zagreb, Croatia
Traveling through Europe, the past is always present. I love staying in those Old World grand hotels that are so steeped in history, that you're traveling back in time the minute you step inside. Esplanade Zagreb is just such a luxurious grande...

Ul. Turanjski Poloj 4, 47106, Karlovac, Croatia
On our way from Zagreb to Plitviče Lakes National Park, we made a worthwhile detour to visit the Croatian War of Independence Museum in Turanj, Karlovac.

I wouldn't give it points for the most cheerful experience, but it is important to understand...

Not that Zadar's alleys and walkways are impossible to figure out, but it's fun to see the city's grid and coastline from above. The 360 views are gorgeous. The wind up there can be quite strong, so hold on to your camera, or iphone.

Narodni trg 6, 23000, Zadar, Croatia
The lines between historical monuments and living spaces are often blurred in Croatia. It's not uncommon to walk into a bar that puts pillows out on the ancient steps of a roman palace, or a restaurant that uses sarcophagi as space dividers. And...

Figurica 22/A, 23251, Kolan, Croatia
Pag is known for Paški sir, a cheese that has been produced from sheep milk for hundreds of years. The winds that blow hard over the hills of the island carry with them a strong content of salt from the ocean. The salt gets deposited on the...

Zapadna Ulica 63, 22222, Plastovo, Croatia
I loved eating my way through Croatia and must have put on 10 pounds in 6 days. One of the most memorable culinary highlights was eating and drinking at Bibich Winery.

Driving to Bibich is already a treat, as it is located in the picturesque...

You can find one of the continent's oldest bookstores right in the center of Split's old town. Housed in the same Venetian palace since it's opening in 1860, it has a mandate that stipulates that the facade can't change and that the bookstore may...

Ul. Fausta Vrančića 18, 22000, Šibenik, Croatia
One of Dalmatia’s most underrated cities, Šibenik is finally being recognized as an exciting coastal destination. Its medieval heart is a stone maze of steep alleyways dotted with charming squares and hidden cul-de-sacs, not to...

A local's suggestion landed me on Maazgoon's terrace, a vibrant spot right next door to the Diocletian Palace in Split.

The crew at the restaurant is passionate about modern takes on Mediterranean dishes; food that is all about the best...
