Before you head to Croatia, you might not be entirely sure about what Croatian food actually is. And the truth is that it has many different influences, and can be really quite different as you travel to different parts of the country.  But on the islands, it`s always fish and seafood for the win. On the beautiful island of Hvar, we enjoy an island dish called gregada, which is basically a fish stew. It can be made with whatever is caught that day, and is flavoured with parsley, olive oil, onions, potatoes and garlic. hvar-gragada-sailing-holidays-food-croatia.jpg

Probably the most famous sight of Dubrovnik is its city walls. These defensive stone walls extend for 2 kilometers, and have protected Dubrovnik since way back in the 7th century but have been added to in the many centuries since then.

These stone walls are some of the largest, most comprehensive, and best preserved in all of Europe.

It is possible to walk the entire length of the city walls and get a truly immersive sense of the city`s history while you do so.

Many people choose to visit the islands of Croatia in order to party the night away in a beautiful setting, and who can blame them?

But if you are after beauty without the all night parties, you might want to discover some of the lesser explored nooks and crannies of Croatia such as the Pakleni Islands.

You can take a boat to these islands from Hvar town, and they offer perfectly unspoiled beaches and bays for peaceful strolling and swimming.
