Panoramic flight over Split and Brac

It is always good to have friends in high places. Well, at least at the airport, in this case… Our friend Igor called few days back asking if we were for a bit of aerial action and the answer, of course, was positive. I have been trying to offer panoramic flight out of Split for…

Vrljika River spring

The forecast was for a gorgeous weekend so our small team of amateur-explorers/historians decided to head to Imotski region to meet with my friend Domagoj and learn more on mysteries of Imotski region and the lakes. The spring is here and staying at home is not an option any longer. Imotski is always beautiful and…

Nakovana – ghost village

I enjoy ruins, ghost towns, abandoned places and everything historic. Imagine my excitement when I first entered Nakovana! Last Saturday I was visiting my new friends in Trpanj (Raguz family) and they took me to a very special place that does not get that many visitors: abandoned village of Nakovana deep in the hillside of…

Archaeology tour of North Dalmatia

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

Christmas in Dalmatia

As the sun was slowly falling behind Pasman Island, on a day before the Christmas Eve, I took my son and went squid fishing. The evening was beautiful and scents of cold December night were already upon us. The seascape of my childhood and my ancestors, had that ghostly, unreal appearance. The sea was calm…

Winter hiking in Dalmatia – (archaeology hike)

Sunny winter days are great for getting outside and enjoying nature and various historic sites. Basically, I am not interested in beautiful nature if there are no ruins. I love all sorts of historic sites and, luckily, there are more than plenty of them around where I live and many of them that I am…

Dubrovnik Cable Car

Dubrovnik Cable Car (or aerial tram) is the latest attraction in Dubrovnik and is already a must do. Dubrovnik did have an older cable car in operation since 1969 but the facilities have been destroyed in the recent war in early 1990s. Completely restored, the operation started again in 2010. So, on our last visit to…

Kudin most on Krupa

This is the second time I am writing about this place that was first described a while back on another post on Kudin most but this visit was more special… In the summer heat, while everyone is going to the sea for cooling off, I went to meet my friend and his small group on…

Sveti Roko, Rogovo

My favorite fešta! Although my family celebrates Gospa od Karmela and Sv. Andrija (to much lesser extent), Sv. Roko was always the favorite of us while we were kids. It was maybe for all the toys being sold on that day, maybe because we did not get to go there on other days…who knows. But…
