Summer colours of Croatia

Sto se siromahu da, nije nikad izgubljeno!- At times it is best to start a post with a proverb in a language that symbolises a beautiful country, Croatia. It is impossible not to fall in love with a country so diverse.

One fine summer day, as the sun awaited to step in, Amit and I hit the roads for another  driving extravaganza. The starting point of our round-trip being Heidelberg, Maribor (Slovenia), Split (Croatia), Zadar (Croatia), Salzburg (Austria) were the destinations on the road-map.

Maribor, Slovenia : our first stop!

Maribor is the second largest city in Slovenia with very interesting architecture. In our opinion, Maribor can best be explored on foot including the city centre, the cathedral and not to forget the Europark when you have only  couple of hours before the city sleeps.
