Taking in the view

The town of Mlini couldn't be more beautiful if it tried. White boats are suspended on glassy turquoise waters in the harbour. A small river meanders through the town, crossed by pretty stone bridges. Several disused watermills line the banks – Mlini actually means 'the mills'.

The oldest part of the town is a vision of quiet streets and stone houses with terracotta roofs. You'll even find a church that's almost 1,000 years old. It's named after St. Hilarion, a saint who, according to legend, killed a dragon and freed the area from paganism.

Holidays to Mlini, Croatia, are all about de-stressing and taking in the beautiful views.
