Many tourists want to see the southernmost gem of Croatia - the popular Dubrovnik. Skradin and Dubrovnik are 219 km apart from each other. No doubt about the viability of moving that mileage, because what awaits you in Dubrovnik is not waiting for you in any other city. And we don't think about the Republic of Croatia.
From other locations in Croatia we recommend you to see the following places: Novigrad, Omis, Osijek, Plitvice Lakes, Pula, Rijeka, Rovinj, Sibenik, Trogir, Varazdin and Zadar. The duration of time travel doesn't depend solely on distance. Much of it is about seasonal crowds.

So, with ticket in your pocket, be absolutely calm in anticipation of your trip.
