Eastern Europe & Russia
Island of Lopud
Island of Šipan
If you want to avoid the crowds,
is best visited between April-May or September-October. In the high season, the old town is packed. If you have been traveling around Croatia and are sick of pizza, I'd recommend Fresh. It's a good place to meet other travellers and they serve wraps and smoothies.
… What a beautiful island. It is bigger than I expected and when I saw the old town of Korcula-- well, all my plans of travelling around vanished. Korcula is wonderful, peaceful and friendly and it's odor... it smells like pinetrees everywhere, and the turquoise bays are dotted with islands.
really is paradise. It doesn't have long sandy beaches with palm trees and coconuts but it does have the most amazing old city I have ever come across. The old city walls protect the ancient town, and it's full of marvelous little restaurants, shops and entertainment. You'll be walking around with a sore neck from taking in the grand and spectacular ancient buildings. I would recomend a day trip to one of the islands just offshore. We went to one and found a hidden lake where we just sat in the sun and swam in the warm clear lake. A perfect location for a couple of relaxing days in the sun.
Stunning -- that's what best describes
. I have not stopped thinking about Dubrovnik since I left last summer and am eagerly figuring out how to return. I can't recommend it highly enough. Go see what a gem this city really is!
… Loved Korcula. It's up there with Dubrovnik in my opinion. Make sure to check out Fresh*! Lovely couple from Canada run it plus it's the first wraps and smoothies bar in Croatia.
is very pretty but there's no real backpacker scene. It's overrun with couples, families, European tour groups of senior citizens, the jet-set crowd, and the see-and-be-seen crowd. Prices are ridiculously expensive! The Old Town is gorgeous but I wouldn't stay here for any length of time.
