I often hear from travellers to Croatia that they land in Zagreb, collect their bags, and race off to the Dalmatian Coast. I cannot blame them for doing so, of course, but my advice is not to rush off so quickly.

When you think of Croatia, you’ll be forgiven if you only think of beaches along those 1,000 out-of-this world islands. Yet there is a part of Croatia to the north that you should visit while you’re in the land of the red & white checkers. It’s known as Istria.

One of the best things to do in Croatia is to visit the historic old towns. One such place that I always recommend, is the seaside town of Zadar

While on holiday in Croatia, no matter where you are, you’ll find something to treat your taste buds.

Local tip: don’t let the abundance of pizza ovens seduce you! Although the pizza in Croatia is indeed fantastic, you need to also be on the lookout for small, often family-run local restaurants called konobas.
