The new year has started with a publicity boom for the Dubrovnik region. After reports in the New York Times Travel section and the popular Condé Nast publication come yet more international media. The Huffington Post website has released an article entitled “30 Things to Do in Europe Before You Die,” and the Dubrovnik region features twice on the list.
At number fifteen on the list the Huffington Post recommends seeing the island of Korcula, “See in the half new year on Korcula Island, Croatia.” The half new year is a celebration, as the name would suggest, half way through the year and is held in the old town of Korcula. And in twentieth position on the list is Dubrovnik and once again it’s the HBO serial Game of Thrones that causes interest, “Play out your Game of Thrones fantasies in Dubrovnik,” writes the Huffington Post.
The top three suggestions in the article are to ride a bike around Amsterdam, sip a coffee in Paris with a view of the Eiffel Tower and in third place swim in the crystal clear waters surrounding the Amalfi Coast in Italy.
