Ahhh, Croatia!

Jump to last reply

We recently returned from a twelve day visit to Croatia. It was as wonderful as the previous posters on Croatia said and we, too, want to return.

We weren't sure what the weather would be like in November but it was mild and sunny the entire time except for two overcast days.
It turned out to be a great time to go as there were only a few tourists around. Some of the museums were closed and some restaurants as well but there was plenty to see and do.

We arrived at the Hotel Excelsior in Dubrovnik just as the sun was setting (4:30 PM). We noticed several uniformed policija in the lobby and wondered if this was normal. As it turned out, there was a NATO conference at the hotel attended by countries that make up former Yugoslavia. It was a four day conference and during that time the breakfasts were very lavish.

We got to the old town after dark. We walked through the Ploce gate, turned right and saw the Stradun with its pearly streets; we were blown away! I just don't have words to describe the beauty. There were only a few people on the street, mostly tall, thin, attractive University students.

The week that we spent in Dubrovnik went by very quickly.

We discovered a wonderful quiet park overlooking the sea with benches and paths outside the Pile gate and we went there a few times. To get there go to Tovjerna Sesame (which is a good place for lunch), go up the steps and turn left. Continue up the hill and you will see the park on the right. You might find a friendly cat to sit on your lap.
