Tips

  • Autumn is a great season to travel to this region as the weather is milder, and you’ll get to enjoy beautiful fall foliage.
  • Wear reef shoes to avoid injuring your feet, during walks along Croatia’s pebbled beaches.
  • Don’t depend on credit cards; bring exchangeable US dollars and currency in Euros for transactions.
  • For some local cuisine, try the mixed grill or Mješano meso, spit roasted lamb or pašticada (beef cooked in prunes and wine).
  • Sip on some ‘Rakija’, which is a hard liquor well known to this area.
  • On train journeys, you can keep track of your exact location by using your smart phone or just ask your guide.
  • The Balkan people normally sound aggressive, but don’t be alarmed as it’s just their way of communicating.
  • Be sensitive about topics such as ethnicities, as this region has only recently recovered from civil war and ethnic strife.
