Places to visit

Croatia is an amazing country and each city has its own charm!

We were very lucky to find nice and friendly Croatian people who recommended great cities and places to visit during our trip: (we learned that Croatian people ARE extremely nice and friendly with tourists, always!)

- Zadar (exceptional old town, natural sea organ)
- Pag (charming 2 hour tour with a beach with crystal sea water)
- Nin
- Trogir
- Sibenik (if summer time don't miss boat trip)
- Split (very charming city, with Diocletian Palace)
- Brac Island (Bol Beach! Fantastic!)
- Dubrovnik (Great old city inside walls - exceptional sea water with kayak tour around old town)
- Plitvice Lakes (National Park with amazing water)

- Pula: unfortunately we were not able to go this time. They have a Roman Arena/ Colosseum like Rome and Verona. Everyone recommends a visit around Pula.

Slovenia is the world's capital of ski jumpers. It is also known as the best country in Europe for mountain activities. Well, as we were there during summer time, our fun was inside water. Exceptional canyoning, rapel and rafting on crystal clear white water - although river level was not more than 2.

We also visited :

- Ljubljana
- Bled (specially charming and romantic city!)
- Bovec (where all adventure sports begin!)

One of the best things about this two countries is that the cities are well structured to receive turists and are not full or spoiled with turists all around. In other words, you will be able to feel the spirit of each city and will also be extremely well treated as a welcome guest everywhere you go.
We did not exactly planned our whole trip...in fact, we booked each hotel the night before we arrive at each city. And it worked great! We used booking.com, analyzed the best options based on accomodation prices and specially, guests comments! It worked just fine!

Find out more about each of this amazing places and cities in the next posts!
