Modric Cave Revisited

modricblog011Caving a Modrič Cave near Zadar is a great adventure for families

Vrdovo plateau and Vodena peća cave

I have never been to Vrdovo before. This part of hinterland I am not very familiar with and I am enjoying every opportunity to explore it. Few days before Christmas, we were invited to go searching for some newly discovered caves. This is a relative term as most of the caves have been “discovered” a…

In search of an elusive olm

The olm (Proteus anguinus) was always one of the animals I wanted to see. It lives only in this part of the world but it is rarely seen by people as it lives underground. It can only be found in the karst caves starting from Soča near Trieste all the way to Hercegovina. It rarely gets…

Okljucna village and Kraljicina spilja cave

I have been reading about Kraljicina spilja cave (Queen’s cave translated to English) for a while now but never had the time to visit. It is the largest cave of Vis island and it is located on a fairly inaccessible part of the western coast close to Okljucna village. Yesterday we had some extra time…

Kraljeva peć, Dugopolje – King’s Cave

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…

Roman aqueduct of Zadar and Vrana cave

Village of Vrana, near Biograd and Zadar, is filled with amazing treasures. The area was inhabited from the earliest days of civilization since it was lying on fertile soil with numerous fresh water springs and it was close to the sea. This area has over a dozen great fresh water springs that almost never go…

Secret Dalmatia adventure – Modrič Cave

Like most of us, I have been always fascinated by caves. There is something mysterious and frightening about them that we started exploring them even as teenagers. Luckily, Croatia is fantastic for caving of all sorts. So when Marjan of Zara Adventure invited us for a caving trip few years back, I was thrilled. Now…
