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. People might think of events like the Holocaust or 9/11 as abysmal, but the Bosnian War of the early 1990’s often gets overlooked. It’s a tragedy within itself that many don’t know of what had happened– that said, I found my visit to this small Balkan country not only educational, but also an insightful view into how humanity can be terrible in this world.

If you ever go to Croatia, there’s a large chance that you would be visiting Plitviče Lakes National Park. A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979, this nearly 300-square kilometer natural park is filled with tumbling waterfalls and clear-as-day lakes which offer plenty of stunning views (and plenty of photo memories to take home).

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”

After three nights in Dubrovnik, I continued my journey through Croatia by heading to Split. Known for its beaches and Roman history, this coastal city is also a popular tourist destination, as it’s also where people can visit nearby islands like Hvar or Brač for nature and nightlife. Compared with Dubrovnik, the city of Split is bigger and with more things to do for a good time. Continue reading “Destination: Split, Croatia”
