Last week I visited Dubrovnik, Croatia. It is the cleanest city I have visited in Europe thus far. It is probably because the part that I visited was old town, but they must wash the cobblestones daily. They were impeccably clean! We visited a monastery, a church and had some free time to walk around the city. I had a fish carpaccio dish that I inhaled along with a fresh spinach salad. Mmmmm! The fish in Croatia is supposed to be some of the best because the water is some of the cleanest ocean water in Europe. I’m starting to see a cleanliness pattern here!
Our lovely Dubrovnik born and raised tour guide said that the city only had 45,000 people, and that 85% of them have jobs in the tourism industry. So basically it was all tourists around! I’m not sure I’d like to live there but I will definitely be back one day. They are also known for their ice cream, so I had a taste of mint, vanilla, yogurt and pistachio! It’s much lighter than the ice cream in the US, I loved it!
