Why we love Croatia
The shipwrecked Odysseus lived in Mljet for seven years. You only get to spend one day here so you better be ready for a spot of culture-cramming.
Grab a plate of calamari and a thin crust pizza in the piazza and watch the beautiful people pass by. Croatians are among the tallest in Europe, so everyone's in the ballpark of six feet, with olive skin and dark eyes and shiny hair and it's hard not to feel kind of plain in comparison. The cure? More pizza.
It would be weird not to point out that Korcula is full of cats. They are everywhere; mooching about in the sun, being fed by locals (they never beg for food) and generally ignoring tourists. Apparently, back in the Middle Ages the Venetians introduced cats here to stop rats from spreading disease, so the locals are super grateful and worship the ground they walk on. The cats remain indifferent.
