Holidays by the Sea
Even winter has its own peculiarities that can be enjoyed, I have to admit it, as much as I am not a fan of the cold and the snow. I do, however, like to drink a glass of fragrant mulled wine and eat a good sausage, but joining the hustle and bustle of Zagreb’s Advent is incomprehensible to me. Fortunately, ever since I’ve had my own car, I can afford to have a cup of delicious mulled wine at a Christmas Fair by the sea, watching the sunset and enjoying the smells of the sea. Many places by the sea are also worth a visit during this Advent time. Do take advantage of the weekend and visit the Umag holiday manifestation UMAGic holidays.

Take advantage of this cooler weather and clear your airways in the Mediterranean landscapes of Buje, Brtonigla, Umag and Novigrad!
A Detox Weekend in Sauna
Cold weather and viruses go hand in hand. Our body is succumbs to winter ailments for various reasons. A good wellness program helps me get rid of the accumulated toxins especially one that involves various types of sauna. Umag is my destination when I need a quality detox weekend!
When everything on the surface is asleep, the harvest comes from the sea meadows: the winter months are the season of catching the highest quality sole, squid and shellfish!
