Dalmatia and Lika
Near Dubrovnik

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 country, but for your money you can get what you've been expecting. The Croatian National Tourist Board has a very…

Dubrovnik city walls

The ancient city of Dubrovnik While traveling around Dalmatia, we visited the city of Dubrovnik, called the pearl of the Adriatic. Dubrovnik is one of the most impressive cities in Europe. By that I do not mean its size, but rather feelings. When you walk along the city walls and the ancient streets, you get a feeling that you returned to ancient times, because the surrounding architecture has practically not changed over the centuries. Dubrovnik's Old Town has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979. This city is one of the most visited destinations on the Adriatic coast, although…

Seafood specialities in Montenegro

Seafood in Montenegro During our vacation, we obviously enjoyed a lot of seafood in Montenegro and local wine of course. Especially, we were excited about buying fresh seafood on the shore from fishermen and preparing our (not anymore their) catch at home. In my opinion, there are more tasty oysters in neighbouring Croatia, however the taste of mussels from Bay of Kotor outperforms many regions offering similar production. In local warehouses it was possible to buy different kind of seafood (and the price was excellent indeed). It was real celebration of summer every evening in Montenegro all week long. Seafood…

Durmitor National Park

In the beginning of June, 2006, 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. In 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 a territory of less that 14 thousand square kilometres and a population of less than one million. Arrival to…
