Croatia is a country in southeastern Europe and belongs to the Balkans.

Dubrovnik

The city of Dubrovnik impressed with its heavily fortified old town and was a filming location for Games of Thrones.

The city of Split impressed with its narrow streets in the old town and was a filming location for Games of Thrones.

Plitvice Lakes

The Plitvice Lakes is a national park with many waterfalls and lakes with very clear water. The Winnetou movie The Treasure in Silver Lake was filmed here.

Along the coast

Along the coast of Croatia are some places worth to explore: Pula with an old Roman amphitheater and the island of Krk, which reminded me of a pirate’s nest.

Travel Tips

Planning

  • I explored Croatia on a backpacking trip for two weeks when I traveled along the entire coast. I took the bus from Germany to Rijeka and made day trips to Pula and Krk. Then I went by ferry to Split and I made a trip to the Plitvice Lakes and the Krka National Park. The journey continued by ferry to Dubrovnik, where I made a day trip to Montenegro. After that, I took a bus for over 25 hours back to Germany. It was my second backpacking trip in 2014 and very spontaneous, next time I would definitely fly.

Do you have questions to plan your trip or suggestions? I'm looking forward to your commentary.
