Posted on Oct 19 2011


The beauty of the Adriatic coast has been recognized a long time ago by members of the world elite and international stars from the world of entertainment and politics. Many of them have this year visited the Adriatic again. Sebastian Vettel, the world Formula 1 champion got to experience the beauty of Croatia as a guest of the head of Formula 1 Bernie Eccelstone, who visits the Adriatic coast on a regular basis. The head man of Formula 1 invited the Red Bull pilot to his yacht and the latter tried out water skiing during his visit.

One of the biggest Hollywood stars, Angelina Jolie, visited Brijuni islands where she saw a theatre play directed by her friend, the Croatian actor Rade Šerbedžija. She was amazed by the beauty of the islands - on which the former leader of socialist Yugoslavia, Josip Broz Tito recieved world leaders - and announced that she will be returning to Croatia with her family.

‘Brijuni are wonderful. I shall definitely return with my family and spend some more time here’, said the actress.

Matt Dillon was another Hollywood star who visited Croatia. He cruised the Kornati archipelago in the company of the Hollywood producer and Oscar winner Branko Lustig. Later he visited Zadar where he attended the closing of the Forum Film Festival.
The musician Jon Bon Jovi also enjoyed the beauty of Brijuni islands and this year decided to tour at least some of the tourist attractions that Croatia offers. Before visiting Brijuni, the famous singer and his family visited Dubrovnik, the island of Šipan, Cavtat, Korèula, Trogir and the National Park Krka.

Prince Harry, the younger brother of the recently married Prince William, also visited Croatia at top discretion. He visited the town of Hvar on the island of Hvar in Central Dalmatia. Prince Harry had a great time until the early hours of the morning in the one club for which the British media claims to be on of the best open-air clubs in the world. He had so much fun that in one moment he  jumped into the swimming pool of the club.

Italian designer Valentino Garavani also could not resist the beauty of the Croatian Adriatic when he sailed into the beautiful Telašæica bay on Dugi otok. The yacht, which some refer to as a floating museum, because the owner is known as a great art lover and has paintings by Picasso and Andy Warhol on the yacht, to name a few, was used last year by Elizabeth Hurley for her Mediterranean cruise.

Apart from stars from the world of fashion and entertainment, the Adriatic was visited by numerous foreign politicians this year. The Slovenian Prime Minister Boris Pahor, the Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, the Slovakian President Ivo Gašparoviè, The Slovakian Minister of Economy Juraj Miškov  or The Czech Minister of Agriculture Ivan Fuksa were some of the foreign politicians who have visited our beautiful country and enjoy its wonderful beauty.
