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😄
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. ☺️
There is more to come, stay around 😉
I’m not gonna write much because Sunday is for pictures and not endless reading! 😉
Have a lovely Sunday!
Stunning national park Krka, where you can even take a swim and drink water in this heaven on Earth! Yes, drink and swim! Croatia is on the top of the world for its clean water and clean sea. There is no need for bottled water, you drink from the pipe wherever you are in Croatia. Blessing, a real blessing. Probably in the future there will be wars for water, we would be a top target to everyone 😕
I know there aren’t many rivers where you can swim and drink from it at the same time – guaranteed no infections of God knows what, no shots or doctors approval needed. Isn’t that amazing!!?
Of corse people don’t wash clothes or themselves or throw trash.
