Events to Check Out if You're Spending the Weekend in Eastern Croatia

October 11, 2022 - Has autumn convinced you to visit the east of Croatia? Not that we blame you if you've decided to spend these warm days on the coast.

We're bringing an overview of events for a fun, joyful, maybe educational weekend in eastern Croatia. Friday, October 14, Slavonski Brod: BrodTech…

Crazy Dalmatian Island Life in October: Peskafondo on Hvar

October 11, 2022 - And you thought Dalmatian islands were quiet from mid-October? Prepare yourself for the craziness of the 11th Peskafondo squid and big game fishing championship on Hvar.  A year ago, I asked three Kiwis living in Trogir if they wanted to have a quite exceptional weekend on Hvar. Their initial interest turned to suspicion when I told them I was going to organise a weekend of real fun in the form of a squid fishing championship. In the rain.  It took all my persuasive powers, but eventually I got them on the catamaran to take part in…

Dubrovnik Through the Local Lens of Ivan Vukovic

October 10, 2022 - There are many promoters of destinations in Croatia, all doing their own thing. Meet one of the best in Dubrovnik, Ivan Vukovic, and his magical lens. Dubrovnik in the international media again, this time on CNN. Someone sent me the link, and I smiled. I didn't even have to guess which name would be featured as the local expert, for I already knew based on past experience. Ivan Vukovic. An accomplished tour guide, photographer, world traveller, and plenty of things I know little about, when it comes to the local flavour of international promotion of Dubrovnik,…

Croatia's Premier Island: Hvar Again in Conde Nast Top 10 in Europe

October 11, 2022 - More global recognition for the island of Hvar, which again features in the top 10 islands in Europe at the prestigious Conde Nast Readers Choice Awards.  One of the first things I learned when I bought a house on an island I had never heard of until 2 days previously was that it was named as one of the 10 most beautiful islands in the world. And it truly is.  That label has stayed with Hvar over the years, and it has its origins in the prestigious Conde Nast Readers Choice Awards, an annual poll of…

Finally! Trade Air PSO Flights Resume: Split to Osijek Anyone?

October 10, 2022 - After months of delay, the Trade Air PSO (Public Service Obligation) flights will finally begin on Thursday, a little-known - and rather useful - way to get around Croatia.  Last March, I took my first internal flight in Croatia that was not Croatia Airlines or a seaplane (ah, remember those days...). And rather a useful little service it was too.  When I posted about my experience flying from Dubrovnik to Osijek in March for just 60 euro back in March, a lot of locals were surprised, as they had never heard of the Trade Air PSO…

Croatian Hotels Have Best Ratings and Reviews in Entire Mediterranean

October the 9th, 2022 - Croatian hotels have the best reviews and ratings in the entire Mediterranean region, but there is one thing which could use some improvement... As Poslovni Dnevnik/Marija Crnjak writes, Croatian hotels have the best guest ratings in the Mediterranean, but they haven't valorised them through their prices which remain lower than both in Italy and France, especially in the pre- and post-season. In other words, claims that Croatia has become too expensive have little to no basis, especially in the five-star hotel segment. Admittedly, the country is still weak when it comes to the world of card…

More Croatian Arrivals in September 2022 Than September 2019

October the 8th, 2022 - Days of Croatian Tourism (DHT) 2022 is currently being held in the historic Dalmatian city of Sibenik, where the ups and downs of the Croatian tourism picture are discussed, and plans to move forward to a more sustainable future are showcased. One bit of excellent news for 2022 is that the number of Croatian arrivals in September this year were higher than they were back in the same month of pre-pandemic 2019. As Poslovni Dnevnik/Marija Crnjak writes, This year's DHT manifestation is being held in the City of Sibenik this year and kicked off in…

Advent in Zagreb Spreading Further Outside of City Centre in 2022

October the 8th, 2022 - Advent in Zagreb this year is set to be spread out further than the heart of the city, with cottages boasting festive food and drink of all kinds returning to Zrinjevac and King Tomislav Square as has become the norm. As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, although the City of Zagreb announced the tender for Advent in Zagreb 2022 this summer, it will have to be repeated for certain city locations. The reason for the repetition, according to the city administration, is the non-fulfillment of the conditions that Zagreb does insist on. This year, unlike last year,…

Second Edition of Mammothfest Kicks Off in Mammoth Valley of Mohovo

October 7, 2022 - The story of Mohovo slowly but surely becoming known as the mammoth valley of Croatia continues in a festive spirit. It has been ten years since the first discovery of a mammoth tooth. A group of local creative souls and enthusiasts decided that the area with such a long and rich history deserves recognition. Welcome to the second edition of Mammothfest! As the portal Turističke Priče writes, the Dolina Mamuta (Mammoth Valley) Association, with the support of the community, is organising the second Mammothfest. The festival program is rich, and the star is a life-size mammoth! Over…

October 7, 2022 - Last night, at the traditional conference of tourism workers - the Croatian Tourism Days (DHT) in Šibenik, the first part of this year's awards was given to the best in tourism. Osijek received the most successful Continental City Tourism Destination award, while Slavonia, with all five counties, was declared the most successful rural tourism destination. As Radio Osijek writes, another award has arrived in Slavonia, more precisely to the Vukovar-Srijem County. Rujana Bušić Srpak, director of the Vukovar-Srijem County Tourist Board, is the employee of the year in the Tourist Board system. And Varja Guttert from Nature…
