Mirror - Croatia is indeed the Mediterranean as it once was
The Mirror, one of the most popular British tabloids recently devoted an article about the Croatian coast in their "Travel" section.

Journalist Nikki Bayley enthusiastically talks about the warm sea, the beautiful cities of Split, Zadar and Trogir, all that "less than three hours from Gatwick," one of London's airports.

"The slogan of the Tourist Board is 'The Mediterranean as it once was' and, for a change, the people in marketing were right. Along the coast with nearly 1,200 islands, of which only 67 of them inhabited and largely unspoiled, it is easy to imagine yourself in a world away from the fast way of life ', says the delighted Mirror journalist.

She was situated in Trogir, on a catamaran, on which she further explored our shores. The City of Trogir is described as "a tangled maze of passages, small streets and inviting bars, with grapes hanging from the ceiling."

The second day of her visit was reserved for a visit to Zadar, which delighted her with the connection of the old and new. The city is full of ancient monuments including the Roman Forum, and churches of which stands out the church of St. Donatus, one of only three circular Catholic churches in the world.

"You want something modern? Head out to the coast and be amazed by the famous Zadar Sea organ’’, writes British journalist, adding:" I sat next to the fishermen, and listened to the beautiful unearthly sounds they produce. "

She was impressed by the monument ‘’Greeting of the sun’’ and its play of light, and nothing less by the gastronomic offer of local specialties of which stands the famous cheese from Pag and sardines that "melt in your mouth."

In Split, she was most impressed by Diocletian's palace. 'the Old Town of Split is one of the most interesting places where I was. It dates from the time of completion of Diocletian's palace. He decided that he wanted to retire in Split, in an enormous palace by the sea, as you would wish too. The most fascinating fact is that people still live there ", said the journalist.

After exploring the old town she had a swim on the beach in Bol, which she considers one of the five most beautiful beaches she has visited. The food she tried during her visit to Biokovo was deemed "worth climbing the mountain for" and concludes: "Yes, the tourist office was not really wrong. Croatia is indeed the Mediterranean as it once was. "
