When darkness falls, places change their personality and looks. To get the feel of any destination, it’s essential to wander the streets and explore alleys at night as well as during the hours of daylight.
Croatia just happens to be one of those places that is beautiful whatever the light is doing.
Chilling in Hvar Town
Some folks are divided about Hvar Town’s charms. It does cater for the yachting scene but in May at least there’s quite a laid back sophisticated vibe going on… even if Sex Bomb is blasting out of a seafront bar. Its overwhelming prettiness acts as an antidote to dodgy music.
We didn’t have the best weather in Korcula and Vela Luka didn’t seduce us in the same way as the other places we visited in Croatia. But the sunset was hypnotic, turning everything an aloof metallic silver before softening into midnight blue.
Being Seen in Zadar’s Bar Scene
Being a university city, Zadar has a great bar scene set around a network of narrow old streets. It’s clear from the position of the seats and benches that they’re ideal for people watching… or even dog watching by the looks of it. And if anyone is wondering why no mention of the famous sunset, it’s because sunset in Zadar deserved a blog to itself.
Dubrovnik After Dark
Relax, after nightfall you don’t have to breathe in to squeeze through the cruise excursions who storm the old town during the day. When it comes to appearance Dubrovnik by night is like Dubrovnik by day – exquisite looking.
