It is almost unheard of that Croatia gets featured on a ‘best-of in North America’ list but that is what a leading auto portal has just done.
US-based portal motor1.com has compiled a list of the 10 best driving roads in North America and have included on it a road in Croatia.
“Where are you going to take that first post-quarantine road trip?”, motor1.com asks its readers before recommending their ten favourite roads on the list titled 10 Of The Best Driving Roads In North America (Plus One In Croatia).
After starting with U.S. Highway 20 (Central and Eastern Idaho) and included spectacular roads like Indiana State Road 135, Dempster Highway, Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway, California SR 140 and Cherohala Skyway, they put in a road in Croatia at the end of the list – the D414 State Road between Trpanj and Ston.
“Driving from Trpanj’s ferry terminal south toward the medieval Walls of Ston requires a cruise on the D414 State Road. Belying its utilitarian official name is some of the most incredible scenery on the Adriatic Sea, with cold and imposing limestone hills on one side of the road giving way to lush coastlines on the other. D414 is narrow in places, but ample turnouts and classically European lane discipline makes preserving momentum easy. D414 connects to D8, Croatia’s section of the Adriatic Highway, at its southern terminus,” motor1.com writes.
