Croatia Travel Blog

Travel guides, itineraries, abandoned places, street art and off-the-beaten-path places in Croatia

Hello and welcome to our Croatia travel blog. You will find all our Croatia blog posts in this section of our website.

Maybe you found our Croatia travel blog because you are considering a visit to the Balkans, or perhaps you are partway through planning a trip to Croatia. Whatever the reason, we hope we can provide some useful resources and travel tips for Croatia. With its long stretch of stunning coastline, Croatia is one of the most popular countries for tourists to visit in the Balkans, and for this reason, we avoided it ourselves for some time. That was a mistake, although if we are travelling along the Dalmatian coast, we plan our trips for spring or autumn, avoiding the high season.

We have visited Croatia a few times and our most recent visits have focussed on getting to know the capital, Zagreb, better and continuing our search for spomeniks, the extraordinary Tito-era monuments found in the former Yugoslavia. Croatia is a fantastic choice for a road trip and we find it one of the easiest countries in Europe to drive around. Either as a stand-alone destination or combined with other countries in the Balkans, Croatia is a multi-faceted destination that we find ourselves returning to again and again.

Our Croatia blog posts are generally aimed at independent travellers and backpackers like us and have a strong focus on travelling around using public transport, staying in budget accommodation and exploring off-the-beaten-path and lesser-visited places.
