Croatia is one of the most beautiful places I have been. Dubrovnik is a perfectly-preserved Venetian walled seaport, Split is a gem of a small city built into the remains of Diocletian's palace, the drive up the Adriatic coast rivals or surpasses California's coast highway, and even Zagreb is pretty nice. Have they started to demolish the commie blocks that mar its outskirts?

Many cities in the former Yugoslavia have areas of high-rise apartment blocks that are generally ugly and depressing. In this country we often refer to these as "commie blocks", as they are a typical product of the communism that used to prevail throughout Eastern Europe. In some places these buildings are now being replaced by more humane building types.

When I was in Zagreb I found there were far too many such "commie blocks", but that was years ago. I hope they are being replaced; they ruined the city.

I haven't been to Pula. It has Roman ruins?

In the Roman Imperial period (1st - 3rd centuries) the greatest classical monuments in Croatia were built in Pula. The most magnificent and surely central classical monument is the Amphitheater popularly called the Arena.

And "commie blocks", is still there in capital city...I don-t like that city!
I like coast ...it is one of best!
You are from NY?
My dream is to visit that great city...

I've been to the beaches of Pag and Zrce, but that's about it. I spent more of my time in Slovenia.
