A Walk along the Adriatic Coast: Novi Vinodolski

On the North of Croatian Adriatic there lays a small picturesque town of New Vinodol (Novi Vinodolski) that played an important role in Croatian history. Having to resist the attacks of Turks from the East and those of Venice from the West, the town needed several fortifications. The bellow gallery showcases a photo of the town’s only entirely preserved fort from the 13th century, as well as photos of a 15th century church of Saint Philip and Jacob, a traditional fishing boat, and a statue honouring soldiers from WWII.

Stay tuned for another post from Croatian littoral soon …

  1. Just yesterday hubby was listening to the 2 Cellos, the Croatian cello duo, consisting of Luka Ε uliΔ‡ and Stjepan Hauser. Such fascinating and talented people and history. You’ve captured it so well with your photo’s Paula. Thanks for sharing. πŸ˜€

    • Hello Stephen, thank you very much. These are snaps taken at the worst possible time of the day what you can clearly see, but I am not that vain as to refrain myself from posting some not so good pics and deprive people from seeing lovely spots in my country. Now to the music, I am really happy you asked the question: it is a local composer: Gibonni – the second male vocal in the song, the first vocal is Urban, the song title is “Posoljeni zrak” which translates as “salted air (not salt- salted). I am happy you like it. I thought local music is fitting for this post πŸ™‚ Have a good week!
