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.

This 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…)

Here is what to see in Loznica Serbia. 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…)

There are a few more places around Uzice town in Western Serbia one should visit. If you keep driving towards Tara Mountain, you will reach the Nature Park Sargan-Mokra Gora, famous for Emir Kusturica’s village Drvengrad, the old train route, and the Serbian clairvoyant family. On the other side of the town, there is also a small settlement called Kosjeric with its rural tourism. Such variety! (more…)

Here are things to do in Zlatibor Serbia, since this mountain is among the most popular tourist destinations in the country – and there’s a reason for that. Still, there are visitors who don’t leave the center of this lavish mountain while on vacation, not aware of all the beauties and possibilities the whole area has to offer. In this post, you will thus find everything you need to know about the mountain attractions that actually make Zlatibor so special. (more…)
There comes a moment when one would gladly escape the city and all that concrete and hide among dense trees reflecting against the water surface, somewhere where it’s possible to breathe in and out, where pristine landscapes leave a woman speechless. Even better if one can learn about the local history and culture at the same time. If you are among those, and you also like buckwheat pie or pancakes, there’s just the right place for you. Pack your bags and go to the Zlatar mountain and the Uvac canyon! (more…)
There’s no surprise there when you learn that on the way from Negotin to Paracin town in Eastern Serbia there will be traces of rich history to admire, but the lavish nature as well. It’s always like that when you go around Serbia! The distance between the two towns is less than 160 km which can easily be covered in a couple of hours, but one just has to make so many stops in order to see everything in this area – that I needed a sleepover on the way. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be possible to visit even a small part! (more…)
