My five nights in Split were long, but packed with activities. From exploring the nearby islands (e.g. Hvar) to day trips to Plitviče Lakes and Bosnia & Herzegovina, I was constantly out from morning to evening– that said, I found my time in Zagreb a much-more relaxing affair, all the while seeing a good amount of the Croatian capital itself.

When it comes to history, Bosnia & Herzegovina has probably one of the most devastating out there.

While in Split, I took several day trips to other parts of the region, including a few islands just off the coast. That said, this post won’t just be about Hvar (as written in the title), but rather one of the day trips I did to it and nearby islands. An all-day affair, it was tiring, but the gorgeous, crystal-clear water and beaches made it a pleasant time. Continue reading “Destination: Hvar, Croatia”
