Music’s golden couple soaked up the sun while sailing through the beautiful Dalmatian islands on a holiday in 2009. Jumping into the blue waters, she gushed: “This is amazing. Look at this beautiful nature that God created, that I am about to jump into right now with my friend that I love and my husband…”
Blue Ivy, born in January, was reportedly named after a tree wrapped in blue ivy the couple had seen on the island during their visit.
MARVEL AT THE 50 SHADES OF BLUE IN SKRADIN like Bill Gates
One of Croatia’s frequent celebrity visitors is billionaire Bill Gates, whose favorite spot in the country is the little town of Skradin and the Krka National Park, studded with cascading waterfalls, green valleys, caves, rich vegetation, and wildlife, a patchwork of different blues, greens – and utterly beautiful.
“It is my favorite vacation place” he said, in an interview with Forbes magazine.
The Krka national park has also been visited by Michael Schumacher, Rania the Queen of Jordan and the Russian billionaire Roman Abramovic.

The Gariful Restaurant in Hvar is frequented by many Hollywood A-listers for its fresh fish and shellfish dishes, such as ‘Drunk Lobster’ cooked in tomato and white wine sauce, and served over spaghetti amongst others.

The Mission Impossible star first visited Croatia in 2004, stopping by Dubrovnik and was so delighted that he promised to return.
