The ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’
The ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’ is one of Croatia’s most-visited spots, and with good reason. This ancient walled city, one of the most beautiful towns on the entire Mediterranean, is now repaired and back in business since playing an unfortunate part in the civil war of the 1990s. With high stone walls, impressive battlements, winding back streets and a picturesque port, it’s the stuff that movie sets are made of. Better still, it’s real and waiting to be explored.
