Advantagesmost beautiful little towns in the world

Disadvantagestourism is not on the topest level

"*** Istria is the largest peninsula on the Adriatic Coast, it belongs to Croatia, ex Yugoslavia. It is the westernmost region of Croatia. Istria was that* gorgeous place that James Joyce wrote from, to his brother Stanislaus in Dublin. The average annual hours of sunshine on the Istrian Peninsula are 2,380. When it rains everywhere, some part of Istria remains dry and untouched. The largest town is Pula (82,000 inhabitants). Istria is the place with ..." Read review

One Hundred and One Dalmatians Diamond review Review with images

AdvantagesCroatia Wants Tourists

DisadvantagesTourism Could Spoil Croatia

"The Croatians say that if you count the number of spots on a Dalmatian dog you will find that there are over two thousand of them – as many spots as there are islands along the Dalmatian coast of Croatia. Our ship, the M/S Dalmacija, was to take us from the Port of Venice, across the Adriatic and then we were to cruise through the islands, isles and reefs of Dalmatia docking and disembarking at several historic towns and cities such as Split and Dubrovnik, ..."

It's not all guns and emotional Gorans

AdvantagesEasily accessible by car from Europe, still value for money, lovely beaches

Disadvantageseverytime you tell your friends you've been there you'll have to answer the 'but what about the war?' question :-)

"No, it's not a dangerous place and there aren't snipers waiting in the bushes! Phew, I'm glad I've gotten that out of the way before I launch into this review! As part of a recent European driving holiday my Significant Other and I headed to the coast of Croatia, to the seaside town of Porec. We drove down from Munich through Ljubljana in Slovenia and then on to Porec in Croatia, a trip of around 5 hours, so not too far to travel. To say we didn't ..." Read review

"I had long wanted to visit Croatia after hearing stories of how beautiful and varied the country is, all I can say is the stories I'd heard really underated Croatia - the phrase stuning springs to mind. I set off with two friends for our annual get-a-way on the cheap, you know the type, bufget flights to an airport in the middle of nowhere and a long hike to the final destination. This year wasn't much different. We got flights to Venice, arriving ..." Read review

Hvar - My favourite place

AdvantagesBeautiful, cheap, friendly, sunny....

DisadvantagesMore tourists each year

"I first went to Croatia a little over a year ago, not really knowing what to expect. I have since returned 6 times. Predominantly, I have visited Hvar, an island off the Dalmatian coast. It is famous for the amount of sunshine it gets each year, and it has the most beautiful, clear water I have ever seen. The island is small, so the sea is never far away, and there are mountains all over. The main town is (slightly confusingly) also called Hvar. ..." Read review
