  • incredible island with incredible history. The impressions that can be collected on the island are just madness. Former prison island, which was completely looted when it was closed. One can only guess how the prisoners were treated there at that time. Torture and killings there probably were the order of the day. Worth a visit in the "cinema/Gallery". There is explained again exactly how everything came about and shown what torments and tortures must have seen the prisoners one. The ride with the narrow-gauge railway on the island it is worthwhile especially in hot weather also recommended, since then too much to the run is. We arrived with our private boat and were allowed to create after consultation with the owner of the restaurant even free of charge. He has only asked us to explore the island with him on a drink stopping ;-) What we have done. Prices for food and drinks are perfectly fine for such a tourist island. We have eaten cheese from Pag and Cevapcici, both very tasty and service very friendly. Visit of the island and of the restaurant definitely highly recommended and totally impressive.

  • When you arrive to the island in the middle of summer and with many tourists can be perceived in a minor key the gruesome history of this island even in the presence of buildings can be seen from the sea. Then, for those who enter into the center of the island, they begin to manifest the feelings for the atrocities happened in Tito's time. Before making the hike I think it is appropriate to read ... you will understand much better what you'll see, since there are no guides and signs are almost nonexistent. "Hard," but to recommend for the historical aspects and human.

  • A landfill of asbestos under the open sky. I don't think there's much more to add. Nice view from the sea, visit it is useless and dangerous.

Where to stay in Zagreb

Lodging in Croatia's capital Zagreb maintains a high standard, with many centrally located hotels offering significant weekend discounts on their finest rooms. Hostels remain the most affordable option for budget-minded travelers visiting for a day or two, providing small but neat rooms only steps away from the city's most popular bars, clubs, and restaurants. For something a bit quieter, look for self-catering apartments and guesthouses in the city's residential neighborhoods, where you can park for free and get a good night's sleep.
