Our Time has come to catch Kairos – the youngest son of Zeus, the god of the happy moment, by his tuft.

The legend says if you catch Kairos by his tuft you can catch your happy moment. But you have to think fast, with wings on his back as well as on his feet, Kairos is extremely swift. One of the best kept reliefs of this Greek god was found in Trogir in 3rd century B.C in an attic of a house from a noble family Statilić. It is assumed that the family brought it to Trogir from a trip. The relief shows a young god with a beam scale in his hand, waiting for a scale to balance thus creating a happy moment. He urgently and almost silently rushes among the people and gives them the opportunity to catch him. His bangs are strategically located at the front of his head, falling down his face. With this, Kairos encourages people to take risks in life and to face situations and not “stay safe”. When a person takes a risk and tries to catch a tuft, the chance of catching a happy moment is much higher.

What if I tell you that in the middle of Dalmatia are real megalithic and cyclopean walls and cities that are truly amazing to visit. And when you visit them for the moment you think that you are in South America or in Malta. And what is weird, most of locals do not even know of it existence, and how rich is Dalmatia in cultural and history heritage. Those two cities are called Asseria and Varvaria. Two pre-Roman (we can only guess the age) cities are located near today small city Benkovac. They are very close to each other, and if you climb to the ruins of Varvaria in the distance you can see remains of the once great city of Asseria.

Today, these walls still enclose Dubrovnik’s historic centre and it is possible to walk along them to enjoy the best views of the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’ and the surrounding lush green islands.

Sailing towards Trstenik,  Pelješac peninsula.

The area of Ston thanks to its geographical position, fertile fields, abundance of water and salinity, natural resources as well as a short peninsula which connects Pelješac with the main land, became a very important residence area for people. Solana dates back to the Roman times, two thousand years B.C. In ancient times the area was inhabitated by the Ilyrians and Greeks and from 167 B.C. the Roman rule begins and this is the first time that exploatation and salt collecting is mentioned in are Ston area.The Ston salt pans are the oldest in Europe and the largest preserved ones in the history of the Mediterranean. Way back in 877. The Ston diocese is mentioned, so it is assumed that this is the oldest diocese on Croatian ethnic space. The Romans leave behind them the distribution of the Ston fields and the name of this area Stagnum – Stamnum which means stagnant or still water. This indeed is an indicationthat already in those times there was salinity and that the name came from the natural characteristics of the area – the salt pans.

After arrival we will take a bus tour towards Sanctuary, Walls of Ston, The museum of salt, The kars cave Nakovana, Greben Kopinja. We will make a stop for a famous Pelješac wines tasting and for shoping of local high quality wines, olives and more.

Visiting of Mirabela and Fortica and a walk in the Old town are few first »must« things to do in Omiš.
The town of Omiš proudly displays the remains of its stormy, pirate history. Omiš also sings – it is a home of several Dalmatian klapas. Omiš with the “wild” river Cetina is an ideal place for a truly active vacation. Many beautiful beaches with extremely clear sea convince even the “most casual, lazy” tourists.

The boat will take us upstream the river Cetina and we will admire the unique canyon of the river Cetina.
In case of extra time left, we will visti the statue of Mila Gojsalić

And who is Mila Gojsalić? She was the Croatian Joan of Arc. In 1530, Mila Gojsalić saved Omiš, or the entire “Poljićka republika” at that time, with her bravery. How did she do it? Legend has it that the Turkish leader, Ahmed Pasha himself, saw beautiful Mila. In order to save her people, the young heroine Mila decided to surrender her virginity to the evil Ahmed Pasha in his tent. Later, on the fateful night, she took the opportunity to set fire to a large cache of weapons in the Turkish camp. The Croats, who somehow expected the brave act of Mila Gojsalić, surprised and defeated 10,000 invaders from the east in a sudden attack.

It runs for about 65 miles before letting out into the Adriatic Sea. Its waters flow at the foot of the Dinara, the highest mountain massif in Croatia.

It is known as the “eye of the earth” due to its strong resemblance to an eye with varied shades of blue and turquoise. Seen from above, it is undoubtedly one of the most particular and fascinating beauties of the region.
