Trogir

Trogir is a historic town and harbour on the Adriatic coast in Croatia and is the best preserved Romanesque-Gothic complex not only in the Adriatic,but in all of Central Europe.

My older daughter Tea visited Trogir during this vikend.There was organised a state competition in knowledge of German language for students of high schools where she took the second place.
Here are few pictures she took in this amazing old town.

These pictures take my breath away. How stunning, how utterly beautiful. I am a great lover of fortresses, not castles, not pretty castles but fortresses, like that beautifuly one above. That was a treat to the eyes.

Yes, those photographs were fantastic and the subject of those pictures was obviously gorgeous :)

Those sorts of places are what I miss so much, being here in Australia. There is nothing "old" here really and everything is dry and dusty, surrounded by gum trees. I guess that has its own special look but it doesn't fill the senses with wonderment like old towns in Europe.

Still, for all that, I'm very happy we settled here and I guess that's the main thing :-D

Trogir is so lovely and picturesque, I love the hanging clothes and linens in the alleyway especially. I also love the pictures of your mother and daughter... so she is smart and beautiful?! Roxanne

I really love old towns! This one is fantastic. I was in Rhodos about one month ago and, of course, I had to spend a lot of time in the old town. There are some photos from there in my blog, if you want to see.

Have a nice weekend!
