Hello Rough Guides!
I’m heading to a festival in Tisno, Croatia next month and would like to spend a few days afterwards seeing a bit more of the country….where should I go?
I’m keen to avoid the really busy, touristy areas but will probably be limited to places within reach of public transport. I’d like to go hiking in scenic (photogenic!) countryside, swim in remote rivers or lakes and possibly hire a bike for a few days – relaxing things that will balance out the rock’n'roll-ness of a festival.
Also, what are the foodstuffs that I really should try while I’m there?
Thanks ever so much,
Wow – sounds like a fun trip! Krka National Park isn’t too far from Tisno and the turquoise lakes and waterfalls there are supposed to be rather lovely (and less busy that Plitvice): www.roughguides.com/destinations/euro...
Dugi Otok and the Kornati islands are also great spots for escaping the crowds (both are most easily reached via Zadar as far as I know). Ask at the ice cream shop in Dugi Otok and they can sort you out with a reasonably priced bike to rent.
All of the local seafood is delicious but you’d do well to get your hands on some Mali Ston oysters if you can. You should be able to find plenty of locally-grown fresh fruit too, including gargantuan fresh figs! Have funx
Thanks Alison, that all sounds just the ticket xx
Pleasure! Have funx
