Haludovo Palace Hotel

You certainly won’t be checking into the Palace Hotel resort on the Adriatic Island of Krk anytime soon because it’s closed…Permanently… The hotel is named after a nearby beach and was certainly a hotspot for the rich and famous to live it up, and for a cheaper price than many destinations in Europe. In fact this place received an investment of 45 million dollars, from the American founder of Penthouse, Bob Guccione in 1972, and in close proximity to a casino. However this was mainly built to attract foreign gamblers and was somewhat restricted to non english speakers. Yugoslavia wasn’t exactly the hotspot among tourists that it is now but this Las Vegas style resort was still actually somewhat successful until the war broke out and tourism plummited.
