World Heritage Sites in Croatia

Landscape, Photography, World Heritage Site

We had a very nice visit to Croatia in December of 2008. That was many years ago before I established my website (blog) and before I ever heard of the term “World Heritage Site”.  We were most impressed with the old southern town of Dubrovnik on the coast of Adriatic Sea. We walked around the city wall and enjoyed the view of old town very much.


We then visited Plitvice Lakes National Park in the interior of Croatia. It was a cold snowy day upon our arrival – we could not walk on the board walk because of slippery conditions. Both Dubrovnik and Plitvice Park were designated as UNESCO Word Heritage Sites in 1979.

      Thank you, Milanka! I didn’t know you were born in Croatia – now I know where you great cooking instinct came from. Five of us took this trip to Croatia and when we get together nowadays we still talk about the delicious seafood we enjoyed so much, especially the grilled squid with inked pasta and nice local red wine from Opatija to Split and Dubrovnik along the coast. — Stephen

      • Yes that is true. I was born near Zagreb. Planning a trip back in 2018 with the family. Looking forward to sailing along the coast, visiting Dubrovnik, Zagreb & much more. Milanka

  2. Beautiful lake views! I went to Croatia in 2015 and although I didn’t stay for long I really enjoyed the old town and sampling the market foods. Would love to go back some day to see more of the landscape
