The island of Korcula on the New York Times list
Reputable New York Times made a list of 52 places to visit in 2016, and included Korcula.
"The world (choice) is big, and we have narrowed it down for you. From ancient temples to crystal clear water, these are our top destinations to visit this year”- reads the introduction to the top rankings.
The island of Korcula has thus found itself in a truly selected society of destinations from all over the world, and the NYT recommends to its readers the "Experience of authentic life on the Dalmatian coast". It is interesting how Korčula is described as a more modest neighbor of the Island of Hvar, which was visited in 2011 by Beyoncé and Jay Z, thus promoting the Dalmatian coast. But Katie Engelhart of the New York Times recommends a less "modern" visit to Korcula:Much of Korcula is still untouched with a large number of fishing villages and small pebble beaches. Instead of staying in the Old Town, where they claim to be the birthplace of Marco Polo, rent a moped and head west. Travel through olive groves and dense forests, drive off the marked roads and try Korčula's white wine, Grk, numerous charming family wineries. "
Mashable ranked Split in the Top 12 destinations
Another well-known and popular medium, the internet portal Mashable, has included the Croatian destination in its top list. Mashable invited his readers to plan their trip now and to include, among other things, Split - a city with a European ambience and a unique Croatian spirit: “Split is the second largest Croatian city, in the center of which is Diocletian's Palace, built by the Roman emperor in the fourth century. Around the palace is a coastal town, which is becoming even more popular with the arrival of visitors. The Adriatic blue and the coastal architecture of the red roofs are too appealing to ignore. The architectural marvel in the city center is surrounded by a beautiful Croatian climate; a day for hiking and a boat trip to a quiet beach should definitely be found in the itinerary. ” stand out from the portal Mashable
