Here’s an older TV show with the Rickster touring Croatia and Slovenia. He travels thru some of the areas we will.
When we are on the coast of Croatia, we will be in the region called Dalmatia.
Dalmatia was an ancient Roman province. Its name is probably derived from the name of an Illyrian tribe called the Dalmatae which lived in the area of the eastern Adriatic coast in Classical antiquity.
The Dalmatian dogs got their name from this area although where they first came from is somewhat in dispute. This website mentions the Dalmatian dogs long history with the Romanies (gypsies) who moved around frequently.
Let’s follow Keith and Ulla on their honeymoon around Croatia in October. We will be retracing most of their trip when we go there.
They start in Zagreb.
Then travel to Plitvice Lakes National Park.
Unto Paklenica Park and Zadar. We don’t go to the island of Pak but we do stay in the town of Zadar with its sun salutation and sea organ.
Thank you Keith and Ulla.
Meet in Zagreb and spend 1st night there.
