What makes island of Vis so special? It’s untouched nature and authentic dalmatian settlement. There’s certainly a different energy throughout the whole island and although Vis is a popular destination for tourists, it’s nothing compared to the likes of Hvar island.
I was thrilled to be invited along to the second part of Croatian National Tourism Board‘s #VisitSlavonia trip where I’d be introduced to a side of Slavonia that I’d never experienced before, many places on the itinerary I never knew existed. My husband, a very proud Dalmatinac was also in for the journey and we were both eager to expand our knowledge and experiences in Slavonia, along with 12 other bloggers and influencers from Europe.
Đakovo is the second largest town in the Osijek-Baraja County with a population of about 27,000 people. While the town has numerous religious monuments and motifs, Đakovo’s main cultural attraction is the Catherdral (Cathedral basilica of St. Peter) that is also visible as far as the highway as you pass the town from a distance. The Cathedral was opened in 1882, stands at 84 meters tall and 7 million bricks were used to create one of the most spectacular Cathedrals in Europe, inside and out. Right next door is the Bishops Palace.
Dugi Otok (Long Island in english) is the largest island in Croatia and only an hour and 40 minutes away from Zadar (ferry port Gaženica) by Jadrolinija. Dugi Otok is branded as “Adventure Island” but really suits any type of traveller, there is something for everybody, even those looking for some peace and quiet far far away from Croatia’s typically crowded beaches. Whether you’re looking for a sneaky day trip away from Zadar city or an extended island getaway, Dugi Otok is the ideal place for some R&R.
Duboka Draga is located in Vrsi and is part of Zadar Region on Croatia’s northern Dalmatian coastline. Vrsi is also the next town to Nin, a few kilometers away and has uninterrupted views Croatia’s highest mountain range, Velebit. To get there you’ll need to drive through a very cute and cobble stone town with many ancient ruins and tiny tight streets before having to slowly come down a pebbled one way path. Be careful to not pop a tyre here, as the path to paradise can be unpredictable!
