Karst, megaliths, mysteries…or not?

This mild winter, when it is not raining, is perfect for exploring the region and for hiking, walking and all sorts of activities outdoors. I have a list of places that I plan to visit – both historic and natural – that is ever-expanding as I keep discovering new spots. There are about 60 of…

History underground

Just recently I have found out about a very interesting find in a small cave in Dalmatian Zagora. The authority on caving in Dalmatia (and Croatia in general), Mr. Tonci Radja told me about his inspection of a small cave few months back. He was originally working on the massive highway construction back in the…

Aman Sveti Stefan

For the past few months we have been very, very busy and almost no time for blogging. Not that I don’t have to blog about! Au contraire! I have dozens and dozens of most fabulous stories! But almost no time to write  🙁 One of the highlights was definitely a fam trip to Montenegro coast…

Historical and Maritime Museum of Istria

I love maritime museums. A year ago I was in Pula and had some time on my own so I decided to visit their maritime museum. Pula was the most important military naval base of Austro-Hungary and that is my favorite part of naval history: late 19th century and WWI. Since 1961,  founded as the…

Ancient roads of Klis fortress

Klis fortress was always the most…

From the immense riches of thousands of years of continuous living on Bribirska glavica hill, to mysterious rock on top of Ostrovica and all the way to Vrana, in less than 50 km! Without even mentioning at least 5…
