If you are a Star Wars fan you probably heard about new episode of it is filmed in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Well, I was there during the shooting of it and what you didn’t hear is – we couldn’t walk in old part of the city or take photos. Everything was a movie set.
So, I stopped here, on the top of the stairs and snapped a quck photo of a sunset on Dubrovnik walls. Enjoy 💛
Hello my dear friends!
It has been a while since I was here. Writing and taking photos for this little blog. Lately I’m trying to prepare mentally for this summer season in Croatia and all over Balkan. I’m already gonna do some traveling next month! Yeah yeah, I know traveling is great and I like it but still it takes a toll on my health every time. Traveling for work is really something else. Stress and eating do not go together in my case. I’m trying to work on my extremely nervous nerves. 😝 Do you know any techniques?
I try to do my best at writing my travel blogs this year! Not only pictures but writing about stuff, good and bad.
Bare with me!! 😊
Here is some tree blossoms in capital city of Croatia – Zagreb
Trogir is a very sweet little Mediterranean town. So small but packed with history. Gorgeous small streets and one big and main and main one in front of the church.
I’ll part it in two posts because I’m all about the picture and the atmosphere! 😄
Outside of the Trogir. Wanna get to the centar? Follow that church! I just had to share this photo. As you park the car just take a sweet walk to the centar. It’s not far. Of course you can park in the centar for a million dollars a hour (just kidding but not really) 😂
I love the different blue colours just spread on the sea. Of course you can take a dip here. It can be a beach as well.
Main square just looking to this little church built as a thank you, for keeping the plaque out of the Trogir. There is an art gallery there now as well on the side of it.
There is no one sitting in the caffe outside because it was 45 Celsius! Hot hot summer in Croatia.
Thank you for the visit! Follow because more is coming. 😄
I could be all Wikipedia here and talk about the history but you can google it yourself. I don’t wanna be boring or stiff. I’m looking through my eyes 😀
What is fascinating for me is mountains and hills of pure stone with here and there some bushes and trees. The story is that mountain Velebit is naked because Italians took all the trees for making Venice. Venice is built on trees of Velebit. I got to say I’m not too happy about it and part of me is screaming- Get our trees back! How dare you?!
A gorgeous view of mountain over Omiš and river Cetina going to the sea. Beautiful view to people who actually live here. Very colorful and sunny.
Going to the sea, church in the distance. Absolutely beautiful. Completely opposite side than the first picture. A big parking place is on the right which is awesome (and safe) because you can park any car sizes and just walk around the whole city.
From the middle if the city you raise up and climb on the top of the castle to see the whole area not just city. Got to me honest it was +45 Celsius and I just wasn’t in the mood to climb all to the top. Hehe! So before I reached the top I was satisfied with this view deep in the shade. I’m not collapsing of heat for any photo. 😝
I hope you’re having a great week! Please follow for more 😄
If you follow my blog you know I don’t write much. I’m all about pictures. But this time I just have to tell you everything exactly as it was, in case you ever decide to visit Bosnia and this area especially.
This is not the first time I was in Bosnia. It was about 5th time this year but it’s my first time in Jajce. We heard there is a lovely waterfall and a gorgeous sight to see. When we got there I parked my carbon public big parking lot with a lot of other cars. We went to see the waterfall and payed for it 2 marke (about 1 Euro per person) and after we went to eat. The watefall and especially this view is beautiful! I love the little city up there as well. So nice and gorgeous! And not alot of walking which is great because it was +37 Celsius in the shade.
The restaurant was delicious and so affordable but nobody there spoke English (I don’t know if that’s the case in others around it) and we went back to the car (not even 2h later). When we arived there were no cars next to my car and I looked down to the tires – there was something add, I noticed that someone stole a decorative screw on every of my 4 tires. One on every weel. I’m just glad we got there before it assembled the whole tires. I was shocked. Then I looked more and saw my review mirror and it was scratched like someone pressured wooden board and dragged until it scratched. (No other car could do it, I have a huge car and there were normal cars where I parked in between them on purpose) We drove straight away to Banjaluka and left the car under hotel cameras.
Moral of this story and my advice to you;
If you are visiting Bosnia come with a bus or rent a car in Bosnia especially if you are going outside Sarajevo. As my car has Croatian license plates it’s a very slippery slope. Since the war was 20 years ago the hate is still in some people. I never ever experienced to my face but I would never ever leave my car in Banjaluka if I can’t see it because of Serbian-Croatian relations until this day. (Banjaluka had most Serbian citizens). That’s the perfect example how few people can ruin it for everyone and make you look over your shoulder. I love going to Bosnia because in hotels, restaurants and cafes they are so nice and friendly (and amazing delicious food). People on the streets too, they will help you in anyway they can which I can’t say for Croatia. Yes, they are just trying harder and they are never annoyed in Bosnia.
I will not stop going to Bosnia because of this, I like it, but I just want to warn and inform you so you don’t return to your car with a broken something and be surprised.
Thank you if you read all this! Maybe I should write more like this? 😆 Make sure to follow me and have a great week😄
If you have been with me for a while or read my previous posts you will remember the post about super clean water in Croatia. Well, here I come again! 😄 Different place same superb quality water!
As many tourists go to Plitvice lakes, some stop by Rastoke (if their guide knows what’s what 😉 ) and find this lovely place where people live with water and waterfalls!
Imagine living right above the waterfall! LOL! So awesome, at least to me.
While a lot of people are thirsty and other have contaminated water in pipes, it’s beautiful and a blessing to live in a country where you drink right out of facet and it tasted great, especially in this part of the country.
Have a graet Sunday and I’ll bring more photos of waterfalls up close 😄
You only have one chance to see outside the walls but you need to rent a boat! You can go on big boat, wooden boat, boat with a glass bottom and a regular one. Also you can pedal in the kayak! Anything you pick, it’s fine. You will see it all.
Not only the walls, you can look at the outside Dubrovnik and just see it all!
Nothing to do with boat theme but I have one for the streets again 😉 I just love tiny streets!
I saw that my pics of the streets od Dubrovnik are so well received by you I just have to give you more! 😄
This time I wanna show you this view, just as you enter the city (you gotta pass few steps down) and you are in the centar! Dubrovnik is not gigantic, that’s a feature of modern day towns. As you walk around you see why would show like Game of Thrones come here to film, no set need, everything is a movie set! 😃 What you see on this pic is main street so kust keep going straight, you will never get lost here.
And at the right side of this picture these is a fountain that had drinkable non stop running water. Of course is delicious and clean, like water is in Croatia, right from the pipe. So don’t go around thirsty! 😉
Don’t you love summer? Don’t you love the crowd and rush? Walking on the streets of Dubrovnik every step of the way you will hear a different language. I love it! In Dubrovnik expect crowd and bustle . It will be packed during the summer especially! But don’t worry, there is a place for everyone and plenty of things to see.
I just wanted to show you this pic which for me captures the summer and that’s colors! You don’t need the beach to show the summer. 😄
