Winter sunset walk in Modrave

Modrave is one of the last untouched areas of our coastline. Hopefully, it will stay that way as it should be protected from the devastation that destroyed most of our coastline. This beautiful stretch starts after Drage and continues to Prosika just before Pirovac, central Adriatic. Vransko lake is behind it (in the old days…

Ley lines in Croatia – Secret Dalmatia

I have been fascinated by mysteries and hidden, sacred knowledge ever since I first read “Holly Blood, Holly Grail” back in 8th grade and then continuing reading the sequels which elaborated more on the sacred architecture and sacred geometry. In other words, on connecting specific places on the maps of Europe, World…and finding shapes, straight…

Murtar cove

Dalmatian coast is full of hidden little coves that managed to escape main roads, apartment buildings, nearly any construction… Many of them are located on the coast but much more on the islands.  Murter Island had that (mis)fortune to be connected to the mainland by a bridge as the island is only few meters away…

Archaeology tour of North Dalmatia

North Dalmatia offers a wealth of truly spectacular archaeological sites mostly unknown to the general public.

Without even mentioning at least 5…

Spring of Zrmanja river

But, although Trogir, Split, Hvar, Dubrovnik…attract a lot of travelers these days, my personal favorite is Šibenik. There is simply something about Šibenik. No matter if it is the historic charm…

Prvic Luka and the iconic “Tijat” boat ride

I have been invited by my friends Gabe and Kristi Frlekin to visit them in Prvic Luka on the island of Prvic. Gabe’s father was from Prvic Luka so, when he first visited, he fell in love with the place and kept coming ever since.  Prvic Luka is a typical Dalmatian village still preserving it’s…

Murter Shipyard

The wooden shipbuilding tradition on Croatian shores started probably with first humans coming here. Eventually, the Illyrians became so skillful in both shipbuilding and sailing that their liburna ships were adopted by the Romans after they conquered this side of the Adriatic. But, times are changing and ship building too. From the glorious liburnas to…

Maraschino of Zadar

If there is one thing that can put Croatia on the World map of very unique delicacies and fine drinks, it would be Maraschino. In Zadar area, marasca sour cherry (Prunus Cerasus Marasca) has been regarded for centuries as medicine and food. This very special plant has adjusted well to the specific soils of Zadar…
