Travel+leisure has just published 2016 destination of the year nominees and Croatia is one of them! Their editors have chosen couple of destinations and now everybody can vote for their favorite – the winner will be known on November 14.
Croatia is in the competition with America's national parks, Canada, Hawaii, Iceland, Ischia (Italy), Korea, Mallorca, Mexico City, New Zealand, Orlando, Paris, Pittsburgh, Portugal, Rio de Janeiro, Singapore and Washington D.C. It will be interesting to see who'll be the winner!
When it comes to our beautiful country, this is how Lila Battis, Associate editor has described it:
- With fantastic food and wine, an abundance of historic sites, and bone-white beaches, Croatia has something for every traveler—and since appearing as a frequent Game of Thrones backdrop, it’s more in-demand than ever. Stroll the port cities of Dubrovnik or Split, which have all the beauty of King’s Landing without the risk of Wildfire. Just a short boat ride from Dubrovnik you’ll find the craggy cliffs and waters of Lokrum, where Qarth scenes were filmed. And the town of Sibenik has so many soaring cathedrals and medieval fortresses that you won’t even miss the Titan of Braavos statue.
Winners of last two years are Myanmar and Cuba.
