Croatia is very much in the news this week becoming the 28th member of the European Union. Eoghan Corry, Editor, Travel Extra, has more information: The country beyond the Dalmatian coast has lots more that is interesting: Istria in the north is accessed through northern Italy or flights to Zadar direct from Ryanair. Dubrovnik, one of the iconic tourism brands, cruise ship port, has direct flights from Aer Lingus (it is overcrowded, what I call stadium tourism). Concorde Travel also organise charters. Also, Pat Muldowney, whose son Myles got married yesterday in Croatia, gives a flavour of the country.
