Things to do and see in Croatia
Looking at Italy across the Adriatic Sea, Croatia is the 18th most popular tourist
destination in the world. According to CNNGo, it also offers one of the 10 best
walled mediaeval cities in the world in the form of Dubrovnik.
Dubrovbik’s walls helped repel the 9th century Saracens and the Serbs of 2001. Now,
however, Dubrovnik is more famous for its ability to welcome desirable visitors
than to repel uninvited ones, and the city has a claim to fame in its Hotel Imperial,
constructed in 1897 – as well as a place on the list of the ten best places in the
world for a fairytale proposal on Valentine’s day!
Visitors to Croatia in summer won’t want to miss the Dubrovnik Summer Festival,
