Wreck of Baron Gautsch – off Brijuni
The Baron Gautsch was a high-class passenger ship, which sadly befell a similar fate to the Titanic. Midway through the first World War, while journeying from Montenegro north through the Adriatic Sea back to Trieste, the captain left an inexperienced understudy in charge who consequently sailed straight into a minefield – resulting in 147 fatalities. The wreck can be dived as a day trip from Pula.
Blue Cave – Biševo
The tiny Croatian island of Biševo has little to trouble the tourists, with one notable exception. The island plays host to the alluring ‘blue cave’: a crack in the limestone cave creates a mystical azure effect which is only viewable for two hours on either side of noon each day. Day trips can be arranged from nearby Vis or Hvar, which include swimming stops in beautiful secluded coves nearby.
Froggyland – Split
Never mind UNESCO World Heritage Sites, when in Split why not check out this incredibly eclectic museum which consists of over 500 individually stuffed frogs in various anthropomorphic poses such as fishing, sewing, camping, and circus acts. The museum is found just of Diocletian’s Palace in the city center.
