“Braja” restaurant and sledding paradise

I hate snow. But kids love it and, like all of us in Dalmatia, they keep bugging us with same old  “Can we go sledding, daddy?” each winter as soon as they see snow on mountain peaks in the distance. And once in a while we all have to prove to be good parents and…

St . Vincent’s Day in Imotski

Thanks to wine cellar Grabovac near Imotski, St. Vincent’s has become one of the most important dates of a winter calendar for winemakers in this part of Dalmatia. It is celebrated on the 22nd of January and it is more connected with traditions of continental Croatia but, for the past 9 years, it has been…

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…

Dalmatinski kolač – a taste of yesterday

With all the invasion of small bakeries in Croatia, some old tastes are getting lost. Pushed away from the shelves, they will soon just be part of our memories. One of those is a round dry, pastry called Dalmatinski kolač or, as we all simply call it, kolač (cake in English) Not sure when it…

Panoramic flight Split to Kornati

My fascination with panoramic flights and desire to see everything from the air, did not end with that flight over Split and Brac. Next destination on my list was Kornati National Park as one of the most attractive places to see from the air in Croatia. Our flight was scheduled for one sunny afternoon few…
