I was considering for some time 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 neighbouring places and islands that are interesting for a possible visit/detour of a 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 a 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 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 tumbling 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 the seaside, reaching all the way from the Slovenian border to the Montenegrin one.
