Discover Croatia – Foreign Journalists Arrive in Dalmatia

discove rcroatiaAfter a full on initiation to Croatia through the Zagreb and Lika-Senj counties, the group of five international journalists, bloggers and travelers who are being led on a 23 day journey around Croatia by American Television host Ashley Colburn for a web tv series titled Discover Croatia, have finally made it to the picturesque Dalmatian coast.

“This is Dalmatia!,” said Ashley as the crew made their way along the Makarska Riviera by boat, whilst they indulged in wine, pršut and klapa music. The first location in Dalmatia for the group is Makarska, where despite the rain, they were warmly welcomed by the director of the Makarska Tourist Board Jure Brkan.

“This is beautiful, thank you team Dhar Media!,” the group of bloggers and journalists said after exiting the boat in the Makarska port. After sailing on the boat, the crew got the chance to find out more about Makarska’s cultural heritage and history with visits to the Malacological Museum, Franciscan monastery, the cathedral and a walk along Kalelarga before heading towards the small town of Tučepi and enjoying a walk along the beautiful beaches of Makarska Riviera. Today the crew will make their way to Brela and Baška Voda, before going fishing in Živogošće and a fish festival in Drvenik.
