Ionian Islands

I was very pleased to finish my quest to visit all the Ionian islands until I found out there is one left – Kythira (Κoύθηρα). It is located far on the south and administratively it belongs to Athica region but geographically it is an Ionian island. So, the the goal is yet to be reached,…

The house of pain and pride

While you are visiting beautiful beaches and charming streets of Corfu town, you will find a simple house among tiled streets and flowered balconies. You will notice it’s some kind of a museum. Not a lot of fuss about it, it’s not famous, it’s not fancy, but if you pay attention, you will walk out…

Foča town for nature lovers

Once I have started, why stop? There are some really gorgeous places near my heart shaped lake, so I will write something about them. I’ve mentioned that the best way to get to Trnovačko jezero is from Foča. This town, despite all troubles it went trough, it still is the cutest little town surrounded by…

Where is this heart shaped lake?

I’ve came to the conclusion that it is selfish to withhold information to yourself if you can share them with the world. That is why I have decided to reveal details about my favorite place in the world, where is it and how to get there, so that everyone who would like to enjoy it…

Sunrise… sunset

One would think there is not much of a difference between sunrise and sunset. One would be mistaken. On the east coast of the Greek mainland, there are many places where you can experience a unique daily event – sun rising from the clear endless sea. The west coast, however, gives you many great views…

Shape of my heart

This place is so precious to me that I’m almost not willing to tell you about it. This is a place of true, wild nature. My favorite place in the whole world. I’m asking you to keep my secret safe and if you ever come to visit, take a good care of it. Somewhere among…

Barefooted

    We started off very late and got to the edge of a forest very, very late. Untill the last village, our phones were working, but when we left the last village, following signs our fellow campers left us so we could find a camp, phones were dead and all we could do is move…

Where Alexander the Great bows

This post is a sequel of a resent post The forgotten city of Pella. Dion and Pella are great places to visit on the way to Mount Olympus. Goal of my first visit to Olympus was to see these archeological sites, but next trip will be more of a mountaineering venture. Unlike the first time,…

The forgotten city of Pella

While I’m planning my next trip to Mount Olympus during September, I want to share some memories and information from a couple of years ago, from a visit to Macedonia (a geographical and historical region of Greece). We were traveling across Balkans, through Serbia, FYR of Macedonia (this is not the same as Macedonia of…

Summer house of Constantine The Great

My long ago forgotten love towards archaeology woke up when I heard a wonderful archaeological site Mediana is finally open, after many years, presenting 17th century old residence with around 1000 square meters of finest mosaic. Residence is actually summer house of Roman emperor Constantine The Great. He ruled during the first half of forth…

Where centuries have tamed powerful Drina river

Last week I was very pleased to find out that reconstruction of the famous bridge over Drina is finished. Every time I go by this bridge on my way to Republic of Srpska, it is alway under reconstruction, covered, hiding its beauty from the eyes of passengers. But this time it was proudly standing, straddling…
