Thanks.

Dubrovnik is awesome. The wall walk is really nice, and there are a lot of great crafts and things to buy in the old city. I vaguely recall seeing people kayaking outside the walls. Taxis were cheap too.

It's very interesting that almost no one on DDF ever came to Dubrovnik. It's one of the top tourist cities in the world, gorgeous old city, beautiful sea, tons of stuff to visit and do (one of the big thing is game of thrones but I don't watch movies so it doesn't interest me) and tons of tourists...

What couldn't you figure out?

Actually a little disclaimer, many of the guys over tend to be very cheap so if this is the type of person you're, better not come here as EVERYTHING is expensive. But if you enjoy to hang out with people of a little higher class than it's amazing (not everyone here is a billionaire, but most people are more like middle class)

Hello,

I am going to Croatia later in the month with my husband and I wonder if you have advice for us in regards to the must sees and if there is anyway to get some kosher food?

Thanks in advance

I know that this is very late :) but yes I did go there and it was insanely gorgeous! really breath taking and amazing! though the main areas were packed with people, after we went a little further we found some quiet places and really enjoyed.

Anyone have any recommendations for Croatia? planning on going for my honeymoon to Dubrovnik (3 days) and Split (4 days) and make day trips to the national parks. Is Mostar worth going to as we make our way from Dubrovnik and Split? We'll have a rental car to provide a little more freedom with traveling.

Great choice!

Mostar is definitely worth it and a car is also a very good idea

Can't tell you about day trips but Split itself is not more than a day. Look into Hvar
