I was considering for sometime to add some general pages about Croatia to this website. I guess it would be useful for visitors who are not very much familiar with Croatia as a country in whole to have some general intro information as well as some more information about Korcula’s neighboring places and islands that are interesting for possible visit or detour of visitor to Korcula.
So, here we are – I will be writing more pages and doing more maps with red dots 🙂 . I must say that I have ” a thing” about maps too – check my painted maps on my webpage to see…
I am planning to include more detailed info about places in Korcula’s near vicinity such as places on Peljesac Peninsula, Dubrovnik, Lastovo, Mljet… I started already with some pages – check Mljet Map that was done just few days ago…
Please come back again from time to time to check how is this part of the project progressing…Update: In the meantime, I started with ferry project about ferries in Croatia which is a database driven site about all Croatian ferries – check here how is that progressing..
What the Press says about Croatia:
- The New York Times:There’s a bubbling just below the surface in Zagreb, the Croatian capital of one million people, and most visitors sense it instantly. It’s a well-worn, East-meets-West passion called Balkan culture that equally embraces a consumer’s desire to visit a newly opened fragrance shop and the cafe next door where an entire goat turns slowly on a spit.
- The Daily Mail: If you like the Costa Brava…you’ll love the Dalmatian Coast. Croatia probably has Europe’s most spectacular coastline, with mountains tumbilng into the island-scattered, clear sea. RUled for centuries by Venice, the architecture of the surprisingly well-preserved medieval towns is gorgeous. Marvel at the remains of Diocletian’s Palace in hectic Split, then take a ferry to the sleepy island of Brac and chill out on the magnificent, ever-shifting Y-shaped beach at Bol. Go there before it’s too late.
- The Sunday Times: Since much of Croatia is a long narrow strip of coast, it’s an obvious candidate for the classic sunny summer holiday. Having emerged from the bust-up of old Yugoslavia with the lion’s share of the shore, it offers almost 1,000 miles of seaside, reaching all the way from the Slovenian border to the Montenegrin one.
