Day trip to eternity: Postojna, Slovenia

By Petra Tkalcec / 2013-10-29

Just about everyone I know that went to school in Ex Yugoslavia, took a trip to Postojnska jama (Postojna Cave) at least once. Why I am the only person from that era who’s never been there is beyond me. Several years back billboards showed up in Selce (Croatia) where we summer, advertizing Postojnska jama and […]


Stone figures made by Satan – Devil’s town, Serbia

By Jovana Cvetkovic / 2013-10-14

Devil’s town (Đavolja varoš) might have a scary name but this place is everything but that. This collection of uniquely shaped rocks won’t frighten you but it will take your breath away. Located in south Serbia, near Kuršumlija, Devil’s town became famous after National Geographic Traveller catalogued it as one of 77 of the planet’s […]

Third largest city in Serbia – Niš – is famous as a birthplace of Roman emperor Constantine the Great but even more for it’s relaxed atmosphere, good food and friendly people with lots of energy and hot southern blood.

By Petra Tkalcec / 2013-10-03

Dream of traveling and exploring the world? Crave unknown adventures and cultures? Enjoy napping and relaxing on beaches? Inclined to helping others?

Kupari – once THE most perfect place on this planet

By Marija Mitrović / 2013-09-27

When the Balkanist published The Dark Side of Croatia’s Tourism Boom it brought back many bitter-sweet memories of places I used to visit as a child. The story about the deterioration of Kupari was especially heartbreaking. Kupari is home to the abandoned military tourist resort – several large hotels which were severely damaged during the war. […]


PicturePostcard: Forza Fiume

By Petra Tkalcec / 2013-09-20

There are certainly bigger, more state of the art football stadiums around the globe, but rarely is one situated in such a beautiful setting as Kantrida stadium in Rijeka. Cut into the cliff on one side and bordering with the Adriatic see on the other earned the stadium the place among CNN’s World’s most unusual […]


Spotted in Selce: The Seagull Guy

By Petra Tkalcec / 2013-09-17

Taking a walk to get our morning coffee in Selce, Croatia we spotted this sea equivalent of a pigeon guy: a seagull guy. I am fond of seagulls, they give me the feeling of summer. I do have to admit though, that I am a tad intimidated by those looks they can throw, and even […]


Thank you, Budapest

By Petra Tkalcec / 2013-09-16

I love to travel. Exploring, meeting new people, or just going for the heck of it. It is tough for me not to and it is usually never enough. After a 3 week vacation I was just on in Croatia, I can safely say I did NOT have enough. I was neither bored, nor home-sick. […]


Spotted in Selce: Meeting the Eva Sardines guy

By Petra Tkalcec / 2013-09-02

This time last year I was drinking my morning coffee at Anka cafe in Selce, a cute little town on the Adriatic coast. We always spend our summer vacation here, and often have coffees at that exact place, but never before did we have a pleasure of witnessing the following Eva sardines walrus sailor called Šime […]
