Museum of Antique Glass in Zadar, Croatia – www.secretdalmatia.com

One of the finest museums in Croatia is definitely The Museum of Antique Glass in Zadar. The museum opened it’s doors this past spring after years of restoration of the beautiful classical Cosmacendi palace (1877) located on the former defense wall of Zadar called “muraj”. The architect Silađin did a terrific job with the interiors…

All hotels in Split, Croatia – www.thehotelsofsplit.com

Together with my friend Robert Aronson, we have realized that Croatia still lacks several web directories that would enable travelers easier access to relevant and updated information. So, this past summer we started developing a concept of The Croatia Travel Network with our first site being The Hotels of Split. The concept is straightforward: listing…

Wine tasting of Ravni Kotari wines

As you have all probably figured out by now, I am VERY patriotic when it comes to Dalmatia, Croatia in general and Zadar area in particular.
