Pictures of old Šibenik

Yes, there are beautiful, old cities and towns lined along the coast of Croatia and many of them are quite unique and very memorable. 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…

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…

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…

Novigrad in Dalmatia

There are places that keep you returning to and you can hardly ever guess what the reason is. Novigrad, on the shores of Novigrad sea is one of those places. Is it for the iconic view from the road above it? Maybe the maze of narrow streets and old traditional houses or  the history of…

Triple barrel cannon by Leonardo Da Vinci. In Benkovac?

I love when I find or just hear about something quite rare. Although it will be in the news soon – as the exhibition on Klicevica opens tomorrow – this is a fairly first report on this interesting triple barrel cannon. I first heard about this canon few months back while hanging out with my…

Ogulin – The town of fairy tales

Few weeks back I was on a business meeting in Ogulin. Never been there before 🙁 but, like many places in inner Croatia, is quite lovely and rich in history. Unfortunately, since it is not on main tourist routes, it is rarely visited and the national tourist board invests zero kuna in promotion. However, the…

Cetina River Spring

Cetina River Spring is one of those (many) places in Dalmatia that simply leaves you breathless. It was back in 2003 when we first visited, wife being pregnant for 8 months, followed by a VERY adventurous drive over Promina mountain to Drniš. This is an amazing part of Dalmatia! So, a week ago, we decided…

Glavas fortress

Hidden deep in the hillside of Dalmatia, just bellow the magnificent Dinara mountain, Glavas fortress (or Dinaric) is one of the most impressive fortresses from the medieval times! It was built in the 15th century as part of the defense shield against the Turks who were becoming increasingly dangerous with their raids and military campaigns…

Šibenik Medieval Fair 2010

One of Croatia’s most beautiful and most unique historic cities is definitely Šibenik. Only Dubrovnik surpasses it’s beauty but not in all aspects as Šibenik has very authentic soul. With one of the World’s best preserved Renaissance city core, it is perfect for all sorts of historical reenactments. So, 6 years ago, someone smart thought…
