Greece Greece is one of the countries I have been to many times, on business, leisure and in transit. However, I have never written about this country so far, so here not only about Athens, the capital of Greece, but also a little bit about Greece in general. To be honest, there isn't much that can be said about Greece that is unknown to everyone, so at least a few figures and a little bit of history. Greece is located…

Kingdom of natural wonders Croatia, especially Dalmatia and Lika, definitely are our favourite holiday destination when it comes to travel by car, because there you can find everything your heart desires - wonderful nature, sun, mountains, waterfalls, beaches, interesting tourist attractions, etc. In addition, this is a very safe country for travellers with a developed infrastructure, where the care of tourists is not only described in travel booklets, but really exists in real life. Of course, it's not a cheap…

In local warehouses it was possible to buy different kind of seafood…

Durmitor National Park

In the beginning of June, together with friends, we went to Montenegro (meaning Black Mountain) to visit Durmitor National Park and Adriatic coast. It was exciting not only because we haven't been visiting this country before. On June 3rd, 2006 Montenegrin Parliament declared independence of the country (previously it was a part of Yugoslavia and various its incarnations). It was interesting to find out what people think and to see how a small country starts its independent living. Montenegro has…
