Dubrovnik and Korcula in top 10 most beautiful towns in Croatia

By  Nov 21, 2016

Croatia is beautiful, no doubt about it, and every now and then one of the foreign sites re-discovers its stunning beauty and reminds us that we live in a unique part of the world! Recently the website The Culture Trip published a list of 10 most beautiful towns in Croatia. 

- No line-up of the most beautiful towns in Croatia could possibly be complete without a mention of Dubrovnik – is written in the article and we couldn't agree more!

- Cut through by the bustling thoroughfare of Stradun, this is a place where vaulted Baroque ceilings can be seen mixing with touches of the Ottoman influence; the soaring keeps of the old Ragusa Republic still crown the hilltops, and the legends of Balkan knights persist between the aged city gates, palaces and bell towers – continues the author and then mentions that Dubrovnik was King's Landing in the Game of Thrones, adding the great sentence 'a regal role for a truly regal town'.

Korcula has made it to the top 10 beautiful towns too.

- Set in the shadow of the rising limestone and dolomite ridges of the Dinaric Alps, Korcula is a true gem of Dalmatia. It can be found clinging elegantly to a curved spit of land on the northern cusp of Korcula Island, encompassed by the lapping waves of the Adriatic Sea on three sides and verdant groves of swaying palm trunks and evergreen pines on the other. Within its streets, marble-clad homes glow with gradients of faded beige and alabaster white, red-tiled roofs conceal earthy eateries touting fish stews and super-dry Croatian wines, and boats bob melancholically between the stone walls of the age-old port – this is how Korcula is described in the article.

Other towns that made it to the list are Motovun, Zadar, Trogir, Pula, Hvar, Rovinj, Split and Zagreb.
