Europe Recap to Croatia

Europe: Mediterranean Cruise: Croatia

Europe Recap to Croatia

Happy Friday! If you are new to this space, welcome! I am recapping my husband, Colby, and I’s recent trip to Europe. I have shared the first two parts of our Europe trip already. The first post was to the Netherlands which I recapped here. After we left Holland, we flew to Venice for a week-long cruise in the Mediterranean. We went on the Norwegian Star and the cruise had 5 stops:

Dubrovnik, Croatia
Kotor, Montenegro
Olympia, Greece
Athens, Greece
Split, Croatia

Last week, I recapped Montenegro and Greece. Today? I’m recapping our trip to Dubrovnick and Split.

Day 1: Leave Venice

Day 2: Dubrovnik, Croatia

I went to Croatia in 2009 with a friend and always wanted to go back. I had been talking about taking Colby since around the time we met. Why? Because it’s one of the most beautiful countries. Dubrovnick is just the cutest little town. When we got to port, we walked to the Old Town area which was probably over 30 minutes. We stopped at a local restaurant, before walking around town and taking pictures everywhere. It was just as I had remembered it, although I didn’t quite recall it being as busy or expensive when I was last there, but regardless of the crazy amount of people, we still loved it. After browsing the streets, which by the way, I love the streets because the stone is so smooth, we walked the city walls, which was $25 per person. Basically you walk around town, but you are higher up so you get a better view of the town. It’s totally a must if you ever go. We then found a place where the locals were with some rocks, cliff jumping and an area to get in the water. The water was freezing and I didn’t last more than a minute or two. After we were finished, we headed back to the cruise terminal. I totally wish we had more than just 8 hours because there is so much to see.

Day 6: Day at Sea

Day 7: Split, Croatia

I had been to Split on that same trip in 2008, but Colby had not. When we got off the boat we spent a long time walking around town. We found a small hike that brought us up to the top of a hill where we got to see the best view of the town. After walking back down, we went to a beach, which we enjoyed for 15 minutes or so before the rain started to come down. It rained and rained some more. We started to walk back to town, which was quite a ways before flagging down a taxi to take us back to the center of town. We walked around a little more before heading to a different beach area where we found a local restaurant near the beach and grabbed a drink. A beautiful town, but made it a little more difficult to enjoy with the weather.
