Two Croatian places on the Forbes list of the 16 most romantic places in Europe to inspire your Valentine’s Day
Two Croatian spots were included in the list of the 16 most romantic places in Europe to inspire your Valentine, published by the influential American magazine Forbes.
Opatija and the heart-shaped island of Galešnjak were included in the list released just before Valentine’s Day, inspired by the best European destination.
The unique heart-shaped island of Galešnjak, nicknamed the Island of Lovers, is located in the Pašman Channel between the Pašman Islands and the town of Turanj on the mainland.
“You have two options: discover this heart-shaped island by boat or by plane with a panoramic flight including Zadar, the island of Love and the Kornati archipelago,” advises EBD.
Opatija, on the north Adriatic coast of Croatia, is described as one of the gems of the Kvarner region with a long tourist tradition dating back to the 19th century.
“Opatija is unique in its mix between Geneva (for its chic elegance), Monaco (for its beautiful hotels and villas from the Habsburg era) and Lake Como for its magnificent” Lungomare “promenade which winds along the coast “, According to EBD. “Unique villas and hotels surrounded by exotic gardens and the contrast between sea and mountains, green parks and blue ocean bring a sense of harmony to Opatija and make it an ideal destination for a romantic getaway. Opatija is also world famous for its chocolate makers.
The list also includes places like Porto Santo in the Madeira Islands in Portugal, Burano, Venice and Lake Como in Italy, Dinard in France, Oia in the Santorini archipelago in Greece and Mijas in Spain.
