After my wife and I signed up for a cruise in the Adriatic Sea to visit the countries along the coastline between Albania and Austria, I broke out an old European map, circa 1966, to find these countries and was surprised to find that they didn’t exist. All I could find was Yugoslavia! Obviously I am geographically challenged, which is even more reason to go on this trip, after breaking down and buying a new map.

Like many others, I have one of those bucket lists that contains a significant amount of things I’d like to do over the next few years. How many of them are realistic is another question, but one has just been ticked off. My parents visited Dubrovnik before I was born in 1984 and always commented on what a beautiful place it was, so a trip to Croatia, while not towards the top of the list, was most definitely on it.

As we reach coastal Opatija, it’s obvious we’ve entered a resort area, with miles of luxury hotels and massive villas along the rocky and picturesque banks of the Gulf of Kvarner on the Adriatic. After checking in at the Hotel Milenij, we wander a boardwalk past the sorts of establishments found in every beach town in the world: ice cream shops, T-shirt vendors, more jewelry stores than you can count, souvenir stands, art boutiques and, of course, restaurants for every food imaginable. Gyro sandwich, anyone?

Croatia is on the list of The Guardian’s Holiday Hotspots: Where to go in 2015
The Guardian, 3rd January 2015

As I watched dolphins playfully chase a boat off Croatia’s gorgeous, sun-drenched coastline I was struck by an odd sense of deja vu. Why was this landscape so familiar? The craggy grey rocks, contrasted against thick green forests and sapphire blue waters, certainly looked cinematic. Then it struck me – the area I was in was putting me in mind of hit TV show Game of Thrones, specifically King’s Landing, the home of the show’s royal family.
