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 💛
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. 😄
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😄
Some people love the sea and I am one of them. Just looking at the distance, ships or islands is much better than just open sea. Walking along this little city, definitely an Mediterranean feeling that stays with you for a long time. It’s pretty from every angle! You can stay down, walking around town or go up to a fortress and check the view.
I waited for so long and so early in the morning to take this picture because of all the people running around blocking this view. Lovely lovely center of the city Portorož.
So many boats tied in the city. Beautiful and so diverse.
Sitting in this cafe is really something else. You are drinking your beverage right next to the sea. Don’t worry if it’s cold of windy, you will get a soft blanket. ☺️
Every weekend is great if you don’t have to work! Hehe But summer weekends are the best! There is so much to do, from going to the beach or going to the mountains- it’s perfect! Everything is alive, right?
Flowers are fantastic. So perfect, so calming. This little flower caught my eye. It’s like painting or someone painted this on the white flower! 😉
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! 😉
There are not a lot of cities in the world protected by unesco or in the top of destinations in the world recommend by every big traveling magazin of web.
It is a city to experience because all the formal things and dates you can google easily and it’s something not everybody likes. They rather walk, drive on glass bottom boats, go to Game of Thrones sets, …
I’m gonna write some more and put more photos but now, two from my phone 😁 So stay around! 😊
I was going through my pictures from a month ago and saw that I didn’t post this amazing city view! I was amazed with the snow still staying ton the mountains fitting perfectly into this pic. Gotta say, this is the only time I really like to see some snow, even in photos 😛 And yes, it does reminds me on white chocolate topping on the ice-cream (obsession much?).
It’s lovely you don’t have to go far up to get a nice landscape shot of the Ljubljana, sometimes the small city is not a bad thing, not every capital city needs to be a giant. Small and safe all the way. 😀 I always feel so comfortable in this city.
