Magic Johnson, one of the best NBA players of all time, visited Croatia this summer with his wife Cookie. To the delight of many fans he met on his travels through Dubrovnik, Split, Hvar, Skradin and the Krka Waterfalls, the retired basketball player spent several weeks exploring the beauties of Croatia.
The former LA Lakers player spoke on social media today about how much he and his family liked their holidays in Dalmatia. He posted a photo from his vacation in Korcula on Twitter and wrote: "Cookie and I have just returned from Croatia and we warmly recommend it to everyone! The food was fantastic and the country is simply beautiful!" wrote Johnson.
Needless to say the post on Twitter received hundreds of comments and likes. Although it would appear from the comments that American travellers hadn’t realised that although Croatia was a member of the EU it isn’t in the Schengen zone and therefore has been open to US guests. “How could an American get into Europe as it is has the travel restrictions in place for Americans?” being just one of such comments.
