Our second trip to Croatia was just as impressive as our first. What an amazing and gorgeous country. On this trip we sailed with a fantastic group from Venice to Dubrovnik aboard SeaDream. SeaDream’s yachting style fits perfectly with sailing along the stunning Dalmatian coast and through some of the over 1000 islands in Croatia. Croatia dates back to the 7th century however the area was ruled by the Romans dating back to 11BC. The history and culture are evident in every port. From the romantic island of Hvar to the ancient walled city of Dubrovnik, the sailing was 7 days filled with interesting sights and breathtaking views.

We disembarked in Dubrovnik staying at Villa Dubrovnik, one of our favorite hotels directly on the coast. Croatia is known for its coastline, but their National Parks will stop you in your tracks . We made our way up to Lake Plitvice in Plitvice National Park. The mountainous region is wonderful for hiking or just relaxing . Small, comfortable lodges are available and the contrast with the sailing on the Adriatic made for a great combination. We will make it back for another fabulous trip.
