Dining at Domino’s, Dubrovnik

Old Town of Dubrovnik is still the most desirable place to have dinner in when in the area. There are numerous restaurants in the very Old Town ranging from small and cozy places to the big restaurants like Lakonda in the Old Town. Like in all major tourist destinations, many of them are not matching…

Korta Katarina wine cellar, Orebić

I have a great love for Korta Katarina wines ever since I first tasted them over a year ago. Being a new winery, the success was amazing for these wines especially on small and difficult Croatian market. But, at this moment, Korta Katarina is already a great brand and a well known wine cellar impossible…

Mali Ston – Walls, cats and ghosts

This weekend I was meeting some business partners in Mali Ston. Always a pleasure to go there no matter if it is in the high season or in the quiet Fall morning. Mali Ston is simply one of those authentic places that casts the spell on you and you cannot resist it. Ever… So, I…

Villa Dubrovnik, Dubrovnik – Romance forever

As the season ended, we are already getting ready for 2011 with site inspections, guide selection and some (slight) expansion of services. One of the nicest part of that process is definitely staying at nice hotels that we recommend to our clients. Each hotel is personally inspected at least once a year and we sleep…

Arboretum Trsteno near Dubrovnik – www.tours-in-croatia.com

Best restaurants in Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is known for a fairly good restaurants but the offers simply has to be better! We, Croatians are often proud of our food and rightfully so. But when our guests come, they don’t have…

Secret Prevlaka peninsula

Few days back, while in Dubrovnik, we decided to go off the beaten path and see the southernmost point of Croatia. Most travelers in Dubrovnik simply “storm” the Old Town, enjoy the picturesque Cavtat and Konavle but we wanted something different: a place so remote that is rarely visited. Prevlaka met our expectations! Prevlaka is…

Best restaurants of Croatia – Kapetanova kuća, Ston Mali

Every time I go to Dubrovnik, or even on a longish trip from Split, I try to stop at “Kapetanova kuća” restaurant for a meal. Famous for oysters and sea food, this restaurant is one of the best known “temples” of south Dalmatian cuisine! Despite some great Dubrovnik restaurants, Ston is still a place of…

Smokvica – Korcula Island

Croatia offers many beautiful views throug the entire country: from the hillside of Zagorje to the cliffs of Dugi Otok and panorama of Dubrovnik… But one of the most memorable for me was the view of Smokvica town on Korcula Island. Typical Dalmatian towns and villages are always located on the slopes so the fertile…
