The new podcast episode is dedicated to my favorite town on the Croatian coast. It’s Rogoznica. Some call it the heart of Dalmatia.
It’s a rather new nickname to be fair. I started hearing it only recently. However, it’s a nickname that suits it well. The cape Punta Planka in the wider Rogoznica area is the place where the North and South Adriatic meet and clash, sometimes visibly to the naked eye. It’s also a safe harbour and a place of an iconic power, if you ask me, at least. It’s a heart as a center, a heart as a guardian of life, and the life-pumping heart due to all the peculiar energy of the place. Scroll down to continue reading or listen to the episode:
It’s my favorite town because I’ve been spending my summers there since I was a kid. It is there where I first decided that I was going to be a researcher of the paranormal when I grew up. I’m still not quite there yet, but there’s still time. Hey, to become a researcher of the paranormal, not to grow up! It’s too late for that:)

In another episode of 1 Star Croatia, we are going through some funny reviews that real travelers have left online. This episode is all about churches. I would like to thank Google Places, for being THE place for expressing dissatisfaction, although TripAdvisor hasn’t disappointed either. I’ve been amusing myself reading about Croatian churches and I’m about to share the amusement with you.

⭐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.
⭐ Pity! ⭐
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 .
⭐⭐ The rooftiles are supposed to be beautiful but are really mweh. ⭐⭐
What’s the big deal with St Mark’s Church in Zagreb anyway? Can anyone notice something special about it? We’re so lucky we found this objective and eloquent review – imagine if someone made a detour to Croatia’s capital just to find it’s…mhew.
