After visiting the St. Nicholas fortress, we headed to Prvić and Zlarin, two of the “main” islands, but don’t let that fool you–they were tiny (a handful of buildings scattered about and one restaurant on each island). They were virtually deserted except for a few locals.

After spending a few days in Dubrovnik, it was time for us to head back up the coast to Šibenik (our temporary home for this stretch of our […]
