SAILING MLJET ISLAND – CROATIA

Mljet Simply put, Mljet Island is 100 square kilometres of unspoiled dreamy gorgeousness.

And there were others who

TOUR OF CROATIA – THE NEW KID ON THE BLOCK

Ranked just below Tour de France and Giro d'Italia, the success of 2015 Tour of Croatia was a triumph of will and determination for its spiritus movens Vladimir Miholjević and his business partner Ivan Crnić. In one swift move they steered Croatia into the arena of top world cycling events and showcased some of its

LIVE IT UP IN OPATIJA’S WELLNESS CENTRES

Sitting pretty at the border of Istria and Kvarner regions, Opatija is deemed something of a grand dame of the Croatian tourism. Its allure was much-admired in the 19th century when it was the premier Austro Hungarian winter resort destination. It still comprises all its former Hapsburg charm, full of dainty floral neo gothic residences,
