Morten Smalby

Hi, I am Morten, a Danish serial entrepreneur living in Split, Croatia. For the last 15 years, I have been blogging about traveling in Croatia and other places, mainly in Europe. I have visited most parts of Croatia and have lots of favourite places—it's impossible to pick just one spot!

My Favorite Places in Croatia:

  • Istria, particularly Rovinj, Porec, and Pula.
  • Mali and Veli Losinj.
  • Dalmatian Islands (Brac, Hvar, Vis, Solta, Ciovo). My secret spot is located on Island Hvar, and I prefer to keep it secret, which is why I cannot provide any details about it 😉.
  • Split, of course. I have lived here for 20 years, so I obviously love the place.
  • Dubrovnik needs no further introduction.
  • National Parks in Croatia, particularly Plitvice Lakes and Krka Waterfalls. I have visited Plitvice about 15 times over the years; the place is just magnificent.
  • Other Islands in Croatia. You just fall in love with each one of them.
  • And last but not least, the north eastern part of the country

My list could go on and on. Literally, there are so many great places in Croatia; depending on one’s preferences, there is a perfect spot.

On My Bucket List for Croatia:

  • Mljet Island, Lastovo Island, Island Pasman, Ugljan, and other islands near Zadar.
  • A revisit to Slavonija, the northeastern part of Croatia.
  • And much more…

Worldwide places I Have Visited for Shorter or Longer Periods:

Living in Europe, it is, of course, easy to visit a lot of countries. I have been to most countries in Europe for shorter or longer periods. My favorite countries to visit in Europe are Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland, and the countries neighboring Croatia: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Slovenia, and Italy.

In addition to visiting countries in Europe, I have also been to the USA a couple of times, as well as Israel, Argentina, Thailand, and Malaysia.

On My Bucket List for the Rest of the World:

Iceland, Scotland, the Norwegian fjords, Canada, and Southeast Asian countries like Vietnam, the Philippines, and Cambodia.

Other interesting things about me

I successfully founded two companies.

I love barbecuing, reading a good book, and resting at my secret place on Hvar.
