Admittedly a lovely country on the whole, the regions covered in this album are very diverse. The east of Croatia is flat and not all that exciting really, but then the coast as well as Istra make up both in sites and in cultural diversity, and fill up with tourists in the summer, and I can understand why. Split is very pretty at parts, though somehow Dubrovnik, which I had been saving for years, was ultimately rather disappointing, perhaps due to high expectations. I have yet to visit any of the islands, which I am sure are worth it.
Highlight: Rovinj, a real jewel of a place.
