3Croa­tia

Sunday Herald Sun - Escape - - WISHLIST CRUISING -

has been hav­ing a “mo­ment” that’s lasted a good five­plus years. Now reign­ing as one of the fastest grow­ing Euro­pean hol­i­day spots for Brits, and by proxy Aussies when on their Euro­pean so­journs, this surge of as­tro­nom­i­cal pro­por­tions has seen the coun­try’s most pop­u­lar city, Dubrovnik, swamped with sight­seers.

Re­ports of un­reg­u­lated cruises caus­ing chaos and Game of Thrones fans caus­ing bot­tle­neck queues around the film­ing lo­ca­tions from the hit TV show, abound.

Though Dubrovnik may cur­rently be a vic­tim of its own suc­cess, you can still get a fix of Croa­tia as it was by head­ing to Hvar.

Hailed as the sunniest port in the coun­try, the small is­land has seen P&O, Aza­mara, Cu­nard, Sil­versea, Po­nant and Pere­grine Ad­ven­tures all drop anchor to al­low pas­sen­gers to take ad­van­tage of its beau­ti­ful beaches, an­cient ham­lets and beau­ti­ful land­scapes.
