ABOUT CROATIA AND IT’S FLORA AND FAUNA, IT’S FOOD AND ART (4)


This is the last episode about our trip to Croatia in September 2012. For many years Croatia suffered from the war in ex-Yougoslavia, the tourists they had before the war choose other countries to visit even though Croatia was not at war. But now it seems the war is forgotten, at least in Croatia, and the tourists are back. It is a lovely country, it has sun and sea, good food, art and history and beauty, what more do you want ?!

Here are a few more pictures.

BEWARE WHEN YOU ASK A STEAK AS IT IS HUGE !!! I FORGOT TO TAKE A BEFORE PICTURE THIS IS AN AFTER DINNER PICTURE.

  1. Thanks for a look at Croatia. The beach and sea scenes are very inviting, and I love the mosaics. I do feel sorry for the dog who must wear a cage on his face, but he seems to be tolerating it well.

    • In Croatia (as in many other European country’s) it’s a law that dangerous dogs (it was a pitbull cross) have to wear a muzzle in order to protect children and other people. Unfortunately “dangerous dogs” are very much wanted by thugs who give the wrong education to their dogs. Dogs are never born dangerous , it’s their owner who makes them dangerous. This one was a really friendly dog.
      Thanks for stopping by and for your comment.
