Ok, you will probably ask why is this so important to know about Croatia? If you are not a runner this information will perhaps be unimportant, but still, news like this don`t come so often. So what about this?
Last weekend in Winschonten, small town in Netherlands, the IAU 100km World and European Championships took place. It is something that happens every year but this year`s championship was full of excitement for Croats. Our national ultra running team went there with 4 of 5 our best women. Yes, only five, because from 4 mil people that live in Croatia only this few running-lovers are crazy enough to run 100 km (or 24 hour race!)

As a young naive girl I was fan of Indiana Jones movies. I was dreaming how I will travel the world and explore sights and discover new history. Then I saw a beautiful canyon Siq. It took me some time to discover that it was a road to the forgotten city of Petra in Jordan.

Last week I was on island Hvar visiting a cosy town Stari Grad.
Everybody talks about town Hvar, lot of celebrities go there (Demi Moore was there this weekend) and it is pretty expensive but you have to pay that image. Stari Grad on the other hand is less crowded, quite but with richer history and it is a great port for boats of all kind (and ones ten time bigger then my house!). Anyway, I had opportunity to get to know Stari Grad and I was amazed!
Stari Grad (Old Town) was the main settlement and founded somewhere in 4th century BC. The first polis was named Pharos (Greek name, later Romans called it Faria in mid 1st century BC, and Croats gave it its Slavic name Hvar).
In 13th century AD a new capital of the island became the modern town Hvar. To distinguish Old and New capital the old capital Hvar was given name Stari Grad (Old Town in English).
