New York Times praises Croatian coast and people
Croatian coast is very impressive to foreign tourists, and Croatian islands Mljet and Korčula have inspired a recent column of The New York Times reporter Seth Kugel. This American reporter was inspired by a holiday spent in Dubrovnik, Mljet and Korčula with his parents, who he calls travellers of the world. They were absolutely amazed by Croatia. He pointed out that Croats were lovely people, but that he can only vouch for the people from the south of Dalmatia, as this was the place where he spent his holiday.

The NYT reporter was left speechless by the local cuisine and most of all by the freshest fish, calamari, octopus, domestic cheese and dried ham. He said that private accommodation on the Adriatic was excellent and that it offers much more than the hotels, most of all because of the possibility of getting to know the life of the locals, who can help their guests with valuable advice.

According to him, after the beautiful Dubrovnik, he arrived with his parents to Mljet, where he truly had a good rest. He was amazed by Korčula, especially with the old town, which he described as beautiful and more original than Dubrovnik itself. He was also impressed that he was in a place `presumed to be the birth place of Marco Polo`. He likes Račišće, a small fishing village, even more.

He and his parents found Korčula slightly more lively, but pleasant just the same. The reporter and his colleagues concluded that the Croatian coast is a real pearl, while the people are one of the most hospitable people in the world.
