Driving along turquoise waters, through a hilly landscape, past medieval towns and across modern bridges.
Experiencing the most beautiful sights of Croatia, while enjoying the rich gastronomy of the different regions.
That is, what the contestants of the Nikola Tesla EV Rally Croatia 2023 will encounter on this 10th anniversary of a luxurious rally exclusively for Electric Vehicles.
Dalmatian cuisine. Any foodie ever been to this part of Croatia will think of black risotto; lobsters and shrimps on a buzara; grilled toothfish, gnats, and squid; grilled octopus; grouper and eel brudet; pašticada with gnocchi and roasted lamb. Rožada, rafioli, kroštula and carob cake. Homemade red wine, prosecco and brandy.
If you’re fortunate enough to visit Split in the summertime, you can try all these delicacies, but if you want a true Dalmatian gastronomic experience, visit Split in October for the eno-gastro event Štorije o’ Spize: Food Stories.
Split is without any doubt one of the most magical cities we’ve visited. No wonder they chose the UNESCO World Heritage classed Diocletian’s Palace – the historical nucleus of Split – as filming location for Game of Thrones. The Roman and medieval ambiance is evident everywhere you turn.
Here are the best places to discover the Game of Thrones sites in Split and beyond – and where you can learn more about its fascinating history.
Motovun is a picture perfect hilltown, nestled in the Tuscany-looking landscape of northern Istria.
While Central Istria took us by surprise with its many picturesque hilltowns adorning the beautiful, undulating hills, the hilltop village of Motovun is no stranger to fame.
Many consider Motovun the most beautiful of the Istria hill towns, and we’re inclined to agree with them. Here’s why:
Many of the hill towns of Istria are the prettiest when approaching them. They crown the hills with their medieval walls and pencil shaped clock towers, looking like a finger stating: “Here we are. We conquered this hilltop.”
Grožnjan is more than pretty on the outside, it’s an artist colony inside as well. Despite its relatively small size, you can both get lost in its labyrinthical cobbled streets and enjoy gorgeous views of the hilly landscape of Central Istria.
Majestic, Victorian buildings. A luxurious promenade that meanders along the rugged coastline. Parks, that just as well could be found in Vienna. Opatija looks like no other town on the Istria, or even Croatia.
Once the preferred summer resort of the aristocrats of Austria, this enchanting seaside city has an elegant air to it, and invites you to stroll along the Lungomare for hours.
Discover with us Opatija: Queen of Kvarner Bay.
