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.
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.
Moving through the Bosnia and Herzegovina you will find a lot of interesting historical buildings and places. Daorson is for sure the most mysterious and unknown place in whole country. The remains of this once strongest town in the wider area are located in Ošanići, near Stolac in Herzegovina. It consisted of three parts, the central of which was a fortress – acropolis protected by ”Cyclopean” walls made of huge stone blocks (similar to the Mycenaean ones in Greece). It included all important administrative, public and religious buildings. The defense wall stretching from southwest to northeast was 65 m long, 4.2 m wide and between 4.5 and 7.5 m high, and it had gates and towers at both ends.
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 Sea. To 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.
Usually my hometown is known like a place with a lot of sunny days, but this year we got almost 12 days in a row under the clouds. As you expect I am not a big fan of it. Because, rain mixed with a strong wind is not giving a lot of time to spend outdoor or in a nature.
