i sort of agree with emiz here.i want sanader to go on tv and say....enough is enough. its time for a major change. overhaul of everything.sanader hasnt kept one election promise. not 1. and hes now become known for being able to lie in 5 languages. croatia is a great place for a holiday .my list of things to cange in croatia is huge. and im not even a politician or economist and im sure that i know how to fix the country. i would start by kicking all the bastards out of local city councils and replacing them by people who are educated and forward thinking . new urbanistic planning a priority. . id have tv ads with tel number that people can call to name corrupt politicians and govt and legal people in croatia . id make it much easier for people to open businesses here. why is the government soooo worried about allllll those criteria that people haaaaaavvvvveeeeeee to comply with to open a business when the fact is that if their business is crap ...they soon will go out of business anyway. so i dont get why the govt is so eager to even at the very start ..have people at the employment office.
No no no no no. All these eejits who post on this board who couldn't punch their way out a paper bag. The question is 'what do you think of Croatia as a holiday destination'. And the answer to the simple question is...One word, watch me lips...Superb!!! It will be your BEST EVER HOLIDAY! I live here, which is a whole different ball game. BUT, I am still here. For a holiday.....you WILL LOVE IT. Listen not to the shedheads. Croatia is..on the up. I doubt there is much will to bring it down. No-one is talking down. You walk the streets, you get to know the place. I walk the streets.....I am getting to know, slowly. I have been involved deeply in real Croatian life in my time here. I have seen Croatian life here from cradle to grave, in my short time here. Serious experiences that will never leave me. Croatia will cater for you on your holiday, for sure.

to: Bobs Your Uncle-Please tell me about sailing the Adriatic. I will be in Italy in mid to late August with my teenage daughter. We planned to go to Split by ferry. We hoped to just go to the beach BUT...now I am intrigued by your comments and may consider a sailing adventure instead. Is there a tour company that you can reccommend? Is this something many Croatians do for summer vacation or just the rich ones from Zagreb? Do Croatians own their own boats/yachts? Clue me in. Thanks! Ciao!

Well, I have a friend who owns a yacht so I went sailing with him as a personal guest several times. A lot of Croatians own their own boats, although you will find Croatian marinas jam packed with yachts from all over the world in the summer. As far as I know quite a few Croatians take sailing holidays during the summer, as they can hire a boat and a skipper and share the costs as a group. Sailing is ,in my opinion, the best way to see Croatian coast, as there is so much to see, it's outrageous. That way you are not stationed in one place and can cover many islands, depending on your itinereary. Also the feeling of sailing is something that is quite difficult to put into words. As tour companies go, there are many out there, I suppose you'll have to Google it. Sorry I can't be of more help in that direction, as I've already said I went sailing privately. I suggest you contact Graham at www.bosmeretravel.co.uk, I'm sure he'll be delighted to help you. Enjoy your holiday!

To: Bobs Your Uncle-Thanks! This may be just what an 18 year old would like to do after visiting museums and family in Italy. She can go to a different beach every day and a different club every night! Any chance your friends can give a reccommendation on a good boat and captain? Any chance your friends want to 'host' 2 Americans? (No harm in asking right?). Ciao!
What kind of an obscure reference was that Ribaric? Curious ! Croatia is a fantastic holiday destination that is reasonably priced. People coming from the more wealthy first world countrys would find it to be an absolute bargain. It can get a little over crowded in the peak season, but if you're willing to get off the beaten track a little it's not so hard to find some peace and quiet. It could definately do with more night time family entertainment, end less market stalls selling over priced plastic crap. You get that evreywhere there is tourists though. A thousand islands, extremely clean water(and I come from australia), mountain hiking, thermal baths, cascades and waterfalls, ancient roman ruins, beautiful women to gaze at, an abundance of fresh seafood, reasonably priced accomadation and cheap beer and wine. It gets pretty hot, but hey, that's what summer is for right. Enjoy
