Croatia is an Eastern European country with a long coastline on the Adriatic Sea. Encompassing more than a thousand islands, it's also crossed by the Dinaric Alps. Its inland capital, Zagreb, is distinguished by its medieval Gornji Grad (Upper Town) and diverse museums. The major coastal city Dubrovnik has massive 16th-century walls encircling an Old Town with Gothic and Renaissance buildings.
In which I share my personal stories traveling though Croatia from Zagreb to the Coast.
A trip to Croatia is not complete without visiting its coast. There was not a single city or town that I explored that I did not adore. From the bathing spots on cliffs, to the salty air, to the crystal-clear water, and fabulous dining scene; the coast of Croatia is a gem.
Zagreb is Croatia’s largest city. One in four of the country's population lives here and there is a good reason for that - it’s filled with great restaurants, bars, and tons of museums. This makes it the cultural heart of the nation. Though it holds true to it’s roots as an Austro-Hungarian empire, this city has become colorful, artistic, vibrant; all thanks to it’s youth.
I’ve always said that the best way to learn about a country is by tasting it; sipping its wine, pairing the spirits with local snacks, indulging on its cuisine. Combine that cuisine with meeting locals and, now you’re having a true cultural experience. That’s what I love about food tours; and the Urban Adventures Zagreb Wine & Dine tour was no exception.
