Another high profile endorsement of the latest part of the Adriatic coast which is starting to attract lots of attention on May 23, 2016, as Northern Dalmatia is including in this year’s prestigious top 10 destinations.

We don’t usually report on the insipid clickbait lists that pervade the Internet, but some lists have more authority than others…

The Lonely Planet 2016 top ten destinations list is out, and Croatia once more makes the list, this time for one of its most up and coming regions – Northern Dalmatia.

It has been quite a year for the region already, with Zadar voted the best destination in Europe by European Best Destinations earlier this year. In addition to making the list, Lonely Planet also did an in-depth feature on Northern Dalmatia earlier this month, listing 9 reasons to visit the region:

Wild swimming, waterfalls and white-water rafting in Krka National Park
Roman ruins and modern innovations in Zadar
Climbing, canoeing and caving in Paklenica National Park
