With its vestiges of Greek and Roman monuments, a mainland that meets with five other European countries, and a shared maritime border with Italy, Croatia is the ideal amalgamation of central Europe, the Balkans, and the Mediterranean. The lavender fields of Hvar could pass for Provence, and the Dalmatian Coast city of Split borrows the look of Bohemian terra cotta-topped buildings.
But the intermingling of all these influences has crystallized Croatia as the pearl of the Adriatic—a rare, lustrous, and exotic gem that transcends time. Villages clustered on Korčula island still revolve around the fishing trade; Dubrovnik’s car-free limestone streets have been worn smooth under the soles of centuries of pedestrians; your table in an ancient stone konoba is exactly as it was when diners toasted over it a hundred years ago.
