1StarCroatia – Glass Chapel near Novi Vinodolski

The size of a dovecote, looks like a greenhouse.

All true in this one-star-review from the photo, which is precisely why some people find this glass chapel a true discovery when driving through the mountains above Novi Vinodolski. Others are obviously very disappointed.

It’s a very picturesque ride overall, with some amazing viewpoints and a few spiritual monuments, such as stone labyrinths and this tiny glass chapel that was built in such a unique style by a local man more than a century ago.

In other words, nobody bothered to build anything monumental up there in the lovely nature. Weirdoes. Just this tiny structure made solely of metal construction and glass that blends in the environment

You already know what we’re about to say: don’t bother. Stay on the beach and forget there’s anything else around Novi Vinodolski.

1StarCroatia – St James Cathedral in Šibenik


We are going to be seeing more of St James cathedral on this blog in the future. It has some rather bad reviews. For starters, I chose this simple quote from TripAdvisor that will tell you all you need to know about one of the most special monuments in Croatia.

I’m not going to go through all of the unique qualities of the Šibenik cathedral that put the building on the list of UNESCO world heritage. Let’s just mention the most recognisable one – the greatest portrait gallery of the era with over 70 heads that decorate the cathedral.

Why would we unnecessarily bore you with other uniquenesses, when an online reviewer knows about this pitiful try of those 15th and 16th century builders to impress a 21st century traveller .
