This is how Hvar looked like 50 years ago. It didn’t change much as you can see from a more recent photo.

There are some new hotels, that lie on the other side of the bay and the town itself grew a bit, but other than that, not much difference.

If you stop by with a boat, there is not much chance you will be able to dock at the main pier or drop anchor in front of the port for that matter. Hvar is very busy during the season so getting a free berth is a matter of luck.

There is ACI marina Palmižana across on Sv. Klement Islands – a part of Pakleni Islands, but it is also quite full during season.

Miramare is definetly one of the most beautiful castels in this part of Adriatic and best preserved.

It lies upon a peninsula Grignano (in Spanish Miramare means Ocean View) which from Miramare Castel it really is beautiful.
The Castel was built by duke Maximilian of Habsburg monarchy (the brother of Franz Joseph, the ruler of Austro-Hungarian monarchy) as his summer residence.

The castel is surrounded by beautiful gardens with plants from exotic places from all around the world.

I found these postcards from Rovinj my mom had stashed in a shoe box. When I visited Rovinj about a year ago it was a totally different sight. Even old towns such as Rovinj are slowly but constantly changing.
On the last photo taken from the curch hilltop, there was no marina yet and no ugly hotels.

The town of Senj is interesting, because it’s different from other, more touristic towns on Adriatic coast.
We took a trip along the coastal road called Jadranska magistrala and stopped in Senj.
The thing to see in Senj are the fort called Nehaj. It is located on the hilltop overlooking the town and nearby islands. The fort is a museum where history of the town and the fort itself dating back to year 1558 is on display. The tickets cost 7 kuna (which is about 1 €) and up to 20 kuna for adults. The museum is open every day from 10 AM till 6 PM off season and 9 AM till 9 PM during summer.

Venice in February

We decided to visit Venice last February and it was amazing. Just the right amount of tourists and warm sunshine made our day.

We parked at Piazzale Roma (cost: 24€ for the day – they don’t have an hourly fee at all).
Almost every shop in Venice sells masks and other dress-up stuff for the Carneval.

We tried to take a ride with the famous Gondolas, but even though Gondoliers didn’t have much to do at the time, they weren’t going to take us for a ride for less then 80 euro, which is still a lot for a 40-minute ride. And they don’t even sing anymore.

At St. Mark’s Square there were some renovations going on – I think they were renewing the foundations of the tower, and the famous Bridge of Sighs was still covered with jumbo advertisements.

I would recommend visiting the Peggy Googenheim exhibit at Palazzo Venier dei Leoni. You can check it out at www.guggenheim-venice.it

Coffee at St. Mark’s square is pretty steep. From 5,6 up to 8 € if you want cream in your coffee. But that is the price for seeing Venice I guess.
