SLOW ADVENTURE IN SOKOBANJA SERBIA

Do you know that you can go cycling on Ozren mountain, take the canoe in Bovan Lake, climb the old town of Sokograd and then get to the beach, that you can also grind your own flour and make buns, or to ride a quad bike with the view of Rtanj mountain? (more…)

MALTA, What to see in Gozo
MALTA, What to see in Gozo

They told me that the northern island of Gozo is more rural than Malta, and they were right. Smaller by the two thirds than the main island, this one houses few settlements and coves, but also the orange-sand-beach, the great 16th-century-fort and the cave where the famous Odysseus was allegedly kept for seven years. So, here is what to see in Gozo. (more…)

MALTA: Sea, beaches and the Blue Lagoon
MALTA: Sea, beaches and the Blue Lagoon

When I have decided to travel to Malta this summer, I was certainly looking forward to spending time by the sea. One just has to be allured by the surreal colors of the see-through water, cozy coves and interesting rock formations. I am not really into lying on sunbeds all day long, but one of my must-dos was of course to plunge few times and see all those famous Malta beaches. (more…)

MDINA MALTA, The silent city
MDINA MALTA, The silent city

The attractions of Mdina Malta, the former island capital, are not to be missed. This is where the Maltese diverse heritage really comes to life. On one hand this was a bustling town during the Romans, while on the other the name itself reveals that it has something to do with the Arabs (medina meaning ‘town’ in Arabic). (more…)

VALLETTA MALTA, points of interest
VALLETTA MALTA, points of interest

Malta was not a destination I gave much thought earlier, at least not before I have visited the Old Town on Rhodes Greece. Not only that it is well kept and still in use, but it was built by – the Maltese knights (or the knights of Rhodes who fled the island after the Ottoman invasion). I am not into “secret societies” or any kind of conspiracy theories and “great orders”, but I am always stunned by such history monuments. Just imagine – the Malta capital wouldn’t be there if things happened differently! All those points of interest with narrow streets of Valletta that separate buildings made of beige stone, various ornaments, Baroque palaces, all of that sprung from the 16th century onward when the knights began their rule on the island.

Off to explore Malta

travelogue-from-Malta-pinThis time we are off to Malta, a small archipelago in the middle of the Mediterranean, right beneath Sicily and close to Africa. No wonder that it was invaded numerous times throughout history by various conquerors – from Phoenicians and Romans, Arabs and the knights, to the British.

Their legacy in monuments and culture lives on, deeply embedded into the Maltese tradition. (more…)

WEEKEND IN SERBIA: What to see in Loznica
WEEKEND IN SERBIA: What to see in Loznica

It so happened that I have come to Loznica from Kokin Brod, driving through thick fog and rain in Zlatibor, hoping it will stop after Uzice, but then sharp curves on Kadinjaca disappeared into the mist again. Driving along Drina river brought some relief, but it wasn’t until I reached Loznica that I felt like entering a bustling civilization. It wasn’t all green yet, but it surely blossomed! (more…)
