Croatia

Happy Independence Day Hrvatska!



I found some great pictures on the internet of Croatia....



Zagreb



One of my FAVOURITE cities...Zadar!!


Zadar


This is the bell tower of St. Anselm's church in the city of Nin (my mom is from Nin)...the bell tower is from the 12 century I believe...it's the church I got married in.


St. Anselm



And this BEAUTIFUL church is right next to the one I got married in!!! St. Križ is from the 9th Century. It takes my breath away every time I see it!


St. Križ


And this is 'our beach'.


Sumpetar


My dad use to wear a shirt that said....
'Kiss me...I'm Croatian!'




Have a great day!!!

Oh my word these pictures look so heavenly! What a beautiful place and to live so close to the sea must be magical! Is that the Adriatic Sea?

What gorgeous pictures of Croatia!! :) And I love the flags as well. We have a huge one hanging up in our house.

My husband is Croatian and we are going to visit his mother there next month. She lives on an island in Dalmatia close to Split, so your photo of the Adriatic really reminds me of her home! Have a great day, Monica

Happy Independence Day!!! I was there during the Summer when all the war was going on, visiting. Police hour, army stationed in Potok, No flights coming or going to Croatia so I could't leave for some time. Crazy stuff!!!
Beautiful photos and Adriatic coast is so pretty!
I will be visiting this summer, any chance of us getting together for coffee?

Oh, and let me know if I need to bring you anything from here that you need/want.
