Croatia Online - Pre Season Preparation
Dalmatia is a bit of a work in progress at the moment as everyone gears up for the short traditional tourist season. Great that improvements are made each year but a real shame for out of season visitors if they choose the wrong destination. The huge process of "kanalisation" (mains sewage system) continues, which means that whole villages such as Vodice and Rogoznica are little more than gigantic building sites. Those taking the back road to Split from the airport will find their journey delayed by a series of roadworks and traffic lights. Building works - on the roads and on properties - have to finish by the end of June so those contemplating an out of season visit should double check that their destination really is the "Mediterranean that once was", rather than a contemporary construction site. Those visiting in the summer need not fear - if the past few years are anything to go by there will be no traces of the massive infrastructure projects once the main season tourists arrive.
