For some reason, the Croatian city name, P u l a, is bleeped by City-Data's language filter. That is why MyTarge was unable to post his photo of the Roman amphitheater at P u l a (the city name is bleeped in the URL for the photo). So I thought I'd post one of my photos of the same place, sans the bleeped word!





OP, I highly recommend Croatia to anyone who loves to travel in Europe. The people are very friendly and speak excellent English. (They are taught English from an early age.) The scenery is breathtaking; the food is fabulous; wine and spirits are divine. You get a lot of bang for your buck in Croatia. (Croatia does not use Euros; its currency is the Kuna.) I can't say enough good things about this country.


Walking "The Wall" at Dubrovnik was a real highlight for me. We walked The Wall when we visited in September 2015 and then walked it again when we were there in April 2017. Everywhere we went in Croatia was wonderful. The capital city, Zagreb, has a population of 1 million, yet it still manages to be friendly and welcoming. It's a lovely city. We only had one day there, and I'd like to go back when we'd have time to visit the museums and explore much more.


I think it would be so cool to go to Croatia and rent an apartment for a few weeks and take side trips from there. I can't imagine ever tiring of this beautiful country, it's fascinating historical places, scrumptious food and marvelous people.

We went to Split and had a great time. The scenery was amazing even though it rained most of the time we were there. Split offered some of the best food we had on our trip, we will definitely be back someday.

I was in Croatia in March as part of a journey from Albania to Slovenia. I thoroughly enjoyed visiting all of the mentioned places. However, by far my favorite was the Plitvice Lakes area. The sheer numbers of waterfalls and their widths and heights was a unique experience for me. All the waterfalls are near each other and provide a stunning hike.
I stayed for two nights at the major onsite hotel. From my balcony I could see several waterfalls and lakes. A truly breathtaking place. I want to go back!

Wow that sounds awesome! When I go I'm going to try to make a point to see it! I'm thinking I may need a couple weeks in Croatia!
