detailed steps about booking apartments, hotels, cars and other pleasant chores that allow inexpensive relax in one of the most beautiful countries in the world, I told in the previous article: How to relax cheaply abroad.
pass on to the impressions of the trip
Apartments in Dubrovnik are very decent.The bedroom and living room with a kitchen.In the long term holiday this option we would not accept, but two days is normal.View from the terrace simply magnificent - the sea and the old town.
On the terrace growing grapes and kiwis!
The only negative, they are almost at the highest point of the city and to get to the beach or the old town, we had to overcome a long way with an incredible amount of steps.
particularly fun to go up the hill ... But we have decided that this is a good charge which in everyday life we sometimes do not have the time.
Over the 1, 5 days of rest we had to explore the old town and visited a local beach.Beautiful city of Dubrovnik,
but spend all their leisure time, I would not want to. best beach of Dubrovnik we are not impressed.The sea of course beautiful, but everything else ... We are struggling to find a place there for disguise, and not finding, to use the toilet in a nearby restaurant.
prices in the cafes of Dubrovnik is also not pleased.The cost of the usual lunch from 1 do1,5 thousand. Rub.per person.It is no frills.But the quality of food I would not say that at the highest level.Reminiscent of a coastal fast food.
Our days in Dubrovnik vacation ended and we went on
finally headed our way in the Basque Water.It is 170 kilometers from Dubrovnik.Accustomed to our routes on which gas stations at every step we safely left the town in a tank of petrol was 40 km.After passing 20 km., And not finding any filling, we started to worry.We decided not to risk it and asked in a small shop near the road where the nearest petrol station.And rightly so.Sincethe way forward was a gas station 50 km.In order to get there we had to go back a little and turned off the route to visit the nearest town.Tucked almost a full tank, we again set out.Now we relaxed and watched the scenery around us.Azure sea, greenery and mountains.Croatia is very beautiful!
Driving along the valley we made a stop, which bought local fruit and jam.
Inexpensive vacation apartments Hospitable House Belik
And here we are.We met friendly House Belik.The owner Ivan (accent on the first letter) is really very good host!We were delighted with the apartment!Decorating rooms made with love and taste.
Living room with fireplace,
... and on a huge balcony overlooking the sea, in addition to a table and chairs there is a place to relax in a rocking chair.
view from the balcony to the sea:
The kitchen has everything you need and more.Very high quality dishes.We just felt like aristocrats.
Honestly, relaxing even in five-star hotels, I have not always met such a good interior.Among other things, cleaning rooms every day (and usually in the apartments are cleaned only on the day of arrival and departure).Caring owners urged us to take them to the laundry, if necessary, our things.And it's free.Ivan gave us a present - a bottle of olive oil, and then another, and gave my husband a bottle of the local plum brandy two.There was a feeling that we had come to stay with friends.
apartments are not on the beach.But not far from the beach, 5-7 minutes of slow walking.
Baska Beach Water really super!
clean and transparent sea.Pebble, on which you can easily walk barefoot.Around the pine trees that provide shade, so we do not need umbrellas.By branches of pine squirrels running around.And all this is surrounded by majestic mountains.How nice !!!The color of the water hits - azure between blue and green.The beach strip is wide enough, so there is enough space for all guests.
sun soft.In general, the climate - better than you can imagine.
village itself is not large, but quite comfortable.On the coast, many cafes and restaurants.There's no huge get-togethers, but in the evening from the coastal cafe came the music for all tastes.From lyrical pop up.Probably someone dancing.We have not visited so I can not say for sure.
But we rented a court several times in a nearby hotel, and while we were playing at the site ran proteins transferring and hiding their nuts.
pleasant vacation cheap prices in cafes
prices in cafes and restaurants is lower than in Dubrovnik.So, as the local market had a lot of vegetables and fruit, and stores everything you need, we ate mainly in the apartment.Cafe visited during the tour.We are absolutely not bothered to cook, we did enjoy it.Fresh grilled fish, fried shrimp, baked chicken and many other things we tried here.
evening on the balcony lit candles and admire the surrounding landscape.Ivan, we recommend a local dish ChiBabchichi.It's like our semi-finished meat patties.Natural meat without soy supplements.My son was thrilled with this dish.
As we noted 1 September boundary
Since among our tourists were two schoolboys, forget about September 1, we just could not!This holiday we decided to celebrate local sweets, who read about on the Internet.They are sold in the near town of Makarska.(10 km from Baska Voda).
no cooking we have not found in bakeries and sweets, these are not sold.Interviewing a lot of people, we found out that these sweets are prepared in restaurants and finally found them.Ravioli - proved Tipo pies with nut paste.But Makorana - cake (they at that time was over).He bought, I think no less delicious cakes, we returned to the House Belik.They set the table and ate heartily!
During this inexpensive holiday we visited Plitvetskie Lake Park Krka
and the nearest town of Split,
where Dioktiliana wandered through the castle and fortress Klis.
to go on a white water rafting.
I note that in addition to the attractions mentioned themselves routes of roads is so fascinating sight - opening to travelers is very beautiful scenery.
Returning from one of the routes, we stopped at some canyon.Such great views we opened, but unfortunately we were not able to capture this beauty.The trip was really scared to stop and not out of the question, to get the camera did not want to sacrifice for the sake of beautiful photo impressions I would not be happy and to enjoy watching this beauty.
summarize our trip, I can say with confidence that travel independently rather profitable and interesting.In Croatia, you can really relax cheaply.
And now the most important thing!After all, my story is not only about a great vacation in the beautiful country of Croatia, and is more about the fact, as the rest abroad cheaply!
