Dubrovnik, Hvar Town, and Stari Grad, Croatia
July 2017 - Dubrovnik (5 nights)

Hot and crowded, but worth it.

We arrived here on a flight from Rome. The drive into the city from the airport was spectacular. I highly recommend the Game of Thrones tour, the city walls tour, and a day trip to the island of Lokrum. We also went to the top of Mount Srdj and saw Fort Imperial. It had a museum in it with lots of information and photos about the Serbian War in the early 90's.

We took a day trip to Kotor in Montenegro. It is only about 2 and 1/2 to 3 hours away. I'll post those pics separately. I highly recommend a tour guide for that.

Seafood was fantastic, fresh, and everywhere. I highly recommend the Dubravka 1836 restaurant. We did have a decent steak one night at Orhan.

Buza Bar outside the city walls was overrated and way too crowded during the day. We came back at night and had a pleasant experience.

Everyone spoke good English and we never had a language problem. The exchange rate with the kuna was favorable. We will go back in the winter time when it is less crowded.

hmm...never really used photobucket before but it looks like it seems to have some form of paywall against 3rd party sharing. I was able to see some photos in there.

I was in Dubrovnik this time last year. Gorgeous city.

Hvar Town and Stari Grad, Hvar (3 nights)

We did not like Hvar Town on the island of Hvar as much as Stari Grad. Hvar Town was cracking down on drunk Brits and young folks on holiday by imposing fines for drinking, picnicing, and sleeping in public and wearing bathing suits in the public square. My family of five was not the type of persons these fines were aimed at, but that did not stop an old geezer in St. Stephens from threatening us with a fine for eating our pastries outside the front of the church one morning while wating for the bus to Stari Grad. There was no one around and no one in the church we were bothering. That uptight dustbag can get bent.

Anyway, Hvar Town was beautiful and a bit touristy/expensive. We were lucky we just missed Yacht Week and the big summer concert series that was coming from Split. There were a lot of young good-looking people in town and lots of British yachts.

Stari Grad was cool, too. It's 2400 years old and one of the oldest cities in Europe. It has pre-Greek, Greek, Roman, and later archeological ruins and sites (like other places in Croatia).

First pic is of our Air BnB place in Hvar Town. Then its Hvar Town and Stari Grad.

Did I miss this one? The images are locked.

Why does TD do that?

They did the same thing to my Croatia thread, pretty aggravating. Who the hell wants to click on all of those links when reading a review.

TD Admins should give us standards for which the pictures should meet (dimensions and file size) in order to be displayed rather than just turning them all off with no notice.

I have pics of Vis, Split, and Trogir to post if I can figure out a good way to post them via IMGUR and not have them convert to links.
