Extraordinary Views

Island Hvar

My discoveries of great places

In the most southeastern part of Croatia, called Konavle and the extraordinary views of the countryside is draws many tourists.

It has such breathtaking views one can't resist seeing this green side view.

The many trees and surrounding views make it all so spectacular.

A beautiful country ruined by the war and now has many changes to adapt to.

My life here has taught me to enjoy what I see and observe daily.

The lovely places have brought on greater challenges.

The many ruined buildings have been renovated and rebuilt. Strangely enough, I recently I stumbled upon another ruined sight.

I was quite surprised to see such ruins not touched further for better improvement.

I have been told this site will be sold in the near future and thereafter will be rebuilt. The old hotels all in ruin has a fantastic sea view. Once rebuilt will certainly be another tourist resort.

What have I discovered about Croatia?

Dubrovnik is one of the greater attractions of Croatia. The population is under forty thousand. A well-known spot for its rich history. The marbled street is called Stradun in the Croatian language, meaning the main street of the Old City or Old Town.

A definite highlight for tourism in the warm climate.

Dubrovnik is a city that in the past equaled Venice in rich and stood strong against Venice. The city improved on the Renaissance style during the fifteenth century. Due to the earthquake in the sixteen hundreds all went down very fast.

The destruction caused Dubrovnik to decline its power against Venice. Since the twentieth century tourism increased.

The old City or Old Town was sunk during the war time. The history of Dubrovnik is most fascinating. If I told you everything about this beautiful place, you won't visit to find out more for yourself. Certain information is better left untold. Mysteries are often left alone.

  • Lots to see if you prefer orchestra and architecture heritage.

You can explore the side streets and night life. The night clubs are there for your great entertainment and the many different bars for a laid back lifestyle.

Island Hvar is an island with a lovely harbor view. You will notice Venetian townhouses. Many backpackers find this island a haven to visit.

  • Anyone can visit the Hvar Island.

The sunshine draws more and more tourists annually.

A beautiful place to find yourself and to learn more about life.

Hvar is the longest island in beautiful Croatia going for at least sixty eight kilometers.

There too are olive trees, figs, lemons and oranges. Fruit trees are planted throughout Croatia.

The island can be explored through an Old city or Stari Grad as is said in the Croatian language.

Trips to all Islands are available from Dubrovnik and all have an Old City.

  • I discovered Rovinj as another attraction, a town in Istria.

A on the top of the list sight in Croatia. Rovinj is noted as the most romantic spot in Croatia. A Venetian bell tower is on the short winding streets of Rovinj. Fishermen are daily at work for fresh fish.

A lovely stroll in view of restaurants and of the harbor can be a good idea.

These are only some of what you can experience when visiting Croatia.

I have enjoyed the beautiful sights and still planning on more visits.

It has been a wonderful time visiting the great places.

You can walk freely and not care of who will rob you of your valuables. It is normal for you to still be very cautious. From my personal experiences I feel most safe here.

I feel I am blessed with beauty in this foreign country.

My life has changed but for the best. My new way of life has made me stronger and free. The daily learning experiences have took me further into my new footsteps.

Everything changed for and went its own paths as I have in mine.

Language was a barrier and is no longer that barrier.

I know my great achievements have showed great power for myself.

Exploring the surrounding places of Croatia has brought me closer to another life.

  • Have you visited Croatia or planning to visit?

Life in Croatia is mainly depended on Tourism.

Tourists who visit Croatia year after year know what they are in for here.

A place of peace and tranquility for all individuals.

I was surprised to see that people don't lock their doors during siesta time. I did not expect it.

Now I do the same.

  • What a great life!

As the changes go on daily I see myself more and more of a different person. My thoughts are with me but in a different way. My thinking power has changed me and I sometimes don't know if it is how I want to be.

I look at my life as a positive breakthrough.

  • How many of you can say you have faced up to your differences?

When you look at your life as only in existence that is sad for you.

I look at my life as more than just an existence. I want to visit more places and see more of other parts of the world.

I want to enjoy my life and have the fun that at some point came to a halt for me.

I don't want to dwell instep look forward to my new ideas and plans.

  • Life is what you make of it!

If you choose to dwell and live in the past life experiences it is only you who is getting yourself down.

Be the brave person and do for yourself.

Some people prefer to be less adventurous. I am up for challenges and choose to live my life in knowing what is best for me.

People's thoughts don't scare me.

Each and every individual deserves an opinion as I do.

I like to be heard directly.

The changes in my life did not make me weak and less powerful.

In trying to visit the surrounding regions I discovered of how people live their traditions. A very interesting way in finding out more about other cultures.

It is not always what you would expect but in another country you have to be up for that surprise.

Don't expect too much or too little.

Croatia has large stretch of coastline. The beaches are clean and the water is sparkling clean.

You will be impressed by the beaches and of the description of the water.

I am satisfied drinking the tap water.

There are some pebbled beaches and some sandy beaches. I prefer the sandy beaches.

The sea is calm and beautiful.

I visited Zaton and Ston these are such great places to visit. Lovely restaurants and close to beaches. If you love swimming and water sports this is the place to be.

I enjoyed the whole scenario of Zaton and Ston. Holiday apartments are close by and a walk away to the beach. A place to relax and enjoy at your leisure.

I learned that Croatia was part of the Roman province. The Croats settled in during the seventh century.

  • A very interesting history!

I like the way I have adapted to a new life. I felt disappointed and took that as a pinch of salt. I don’t sweat on the small stuff. I have been through far too much to take everything to heart. It is time to just let go and let be.

A wonderful place to raise a family.

  • Croatia is a small and independent country and has its ups and downs then again, which country is running to its perfection?
