Solo Trip to Pula – City full of history and hospitable locals

0
Last spring I finally found some time to visit Pula. A coastal city in Istrian County very famous by its historical importance in the Adriatic SeaTo be honest, this was not my first visit to this city, but this one will stay in my mind much more time because this was a solo trip.

While preparing for a trip I tried to remind myself of the last visit. It was the end of elementary school so everything is a little bit foggy, things that stayed in my mind are hospitality of people. Tourguide told us that in Greek Mythology this city was depicted as a place for refugees and even today locals are very warm to visitors.

Sibenik – Small Croatian Town full of Wonder

Looking through the bus the outskirts of the city didn’t give a big promise for a great town. Rusty and old neighborhood gave an impression of a forgotten city between two big dalmatian centers. Split and Zadar are the places from which you can easily come to the Sibenik, there are a lot of flights to these towns and from there you can use a bus to your final destination. After arriving at a bus station everything looked much better. City has familiar Dalmatian design with a beautiful seaside hang-outs and quaint alleys and squares. In Croatian history is known as a city which is built and maintained by Croatians. Other cities like Split and Dubrovnik are founded by other cultures.

Back home from yet another weekend trip. This time I was in Belgrade. Trip that I was wishing for last two years but never was a good time to actually do it finally happen. Ex-Yugoslavians biggest city and today capital of Serbia is the place where a lot of different cultures met and every one of them put some mark on it. I had about 32 hours to spend there so I didn’t find time to visit everything that I wanted but it was worth it.

If you are thinking which island in Croatia is best to visit, you are probably having a headache. More than a seven hundred of them is quote a number. But don’t worry I have a great suggestion for you. This remote and rocky island is the best place to be if you are trying to find a little bit of peace and a lot of great food and beautiful nature. On the island you can come to 2 cites “Vis” and “Komiza”. As you can guess from the name Vis is a little bit bigger with a port, markets, post and museum. Komiza is on the other side of the island and you can go there via car from Vis or by a longer walk.

October in my hometown – Mostar

It is October… The time of streets filled with a smell of baked chestnut, crunchy leaves, and cozy sweaters has finally arrived. Woods are dressing red and gold sweaters giving all the essence of the earth to be inhaled in one breath, the ripe earth; in a smell that is in no way inferior to the smell of the sea. For me, this is the smell which gives me feel of the home. If someone writes a book of most beautiful pleasures on Balkan this would probably be one of the main topics in that book. Balkan Hygge, some would say.
