Croatia on the list of 19 emerging European destinations to visit in 2019

By  Mar 12, 2019

Recently, website Emerging Europe published an article bringing 19 off-the-beaten-track destinations across the region well worth visiting in 2019 and Croatia found its place on it!

Croatian representative is Silba, a little gem – an island placed in nothern Dalmatia, south-east of Losinj, between the islands of Permuda and Olib.

-Car-free Silba is about as off-the-beaten-track as it is possible to get in Croatia. Long a retreat for hedonists, artists and anyone seeking an alternative lifestyle it packs a punch for those looking for unique sights too. The 16th century fortress is a gem, topped with a hexagonal watchtower whose narrow spiral steps can be climbed by the fit. There’s a gallery featuring the work of sculptor Marija Ujevic-Galetovic, a contemporary artist who does fantastic things with the human form, and throughout the summer the island hosts quirky cultural events. A ferry from Zadar will get you here – Emerging Europe writes about this little island that officialy has a population around 300 people, that varies throughtout the year.

Other destinations on the list include some destinations that are a good day trip from Dubrovnik, such as Mostar and Budva. Take a look at the whole list here.
