Opojna mešanica kultur na Balkanu

Predvsem v zadnjem času se zdi, da mešanje pripadnikov različnih kultur, narodnosti in religij prinaša predvsem trenja in napetosti. Čeprav slednje še kako drži tudi na Balkanu, pa se zdi, da je ravno Bosna in Hercegovina čudovit prikaz vsega lepega, kar tovrstno mešanje prinaša: strpnost, odprtost, toleranco, kompromis, okusno hrano, zanimivo umetnost in izjemno arhitekturo. Vse to in še več sva pri obisku te čudovite države izkusila tudi sama. Jajce in Jezero Pliva Najino raziskovanje srca Balkana se je začelo v Jajcu. Jajce slovi kot rojstni kraj tretje jugoslovanske države in kot eno izmed najlepših mest v tem delu Evrope....

Country Nr 62 – Bosnia and Herzegovina

Country 62/196: Bosnia and Herzegovina (B&H) Destinations: Jajce, Pliva lakes, Sarajevo, Jablanica, Mostar, Blagaj, Kravice waterfalls Bosnia and Herzegovina is located within the Balkan Peninsula, very close to our home country - Slovenia. We have already been to Bosnia and Herzegovina, but we have never visited its most beautiful sites. The country is known for its rich, yet bloody history, welcoming people, diverse culture (it is home to three ethnic groups - Bosniaks, Croats, Serbs; three languages; and three religions - Muslim, Catholic or Orthodox Christian), good food, great music, many natural wonders, and breathtaking cities. B&H turned out to...

Sprehod po biseru Donave

Iz vroče Afrike v (nama) ledeno Evropo. Meseca maja je bilo vreme v domačih krajih naravnost obupno - kot veste. Namesto prijetne, tople, sončne pomladi dež in bistveno prenizke temperature. V času, ko sva se odpravljala v prestolnico sosednje Madžarske je bilo celo tako hladno, da sem morala vzeti šal in zimsko kapo. A v tako lepem mestu kot je Budimpešta nama slabo vreme ni moglo skvariti razpoloženja. Oba sva v otroštvu Budimpešto obiskala z družino, a v takšnem okviru sva pravzaprav videla le glavne dve ali tri znamenitosti. Tokrat pa sva se bisera Donave, kot mestu zasluženo pravijo, lotila...

Potepanje po Afriki se zaključuje: obisk še zadnje ‘prepovedane’ države v Afriki in zaslužene počitnice na otoku Sal

Naše ministrstvo za zunanje zadeve hrani seznam držav, kamor se zaradi varnostnih razlogov odsvetujejo vsa potovanja. Na seznam se trenutno uvršča devet držav, 5 v Afriki in 4 na Bližnjem vzhodu. Ker nisva nikakršna strokovnjaka na političnem področju in sploh, ker nisva niti približno dovolj samozavestna, da bi mislila, da veva bolje kot znalci na mzz, v seznam ne dvomiva. Države so se na seznamu znašle z razlogom. Kljub temu pa je zanimivo, da ljudje, tudi tujci, ki se nahajajo v dotični državi, zadeve navadno ne dojemajo tako grozljivo kot jih prikazujejo mediji. “Pridite, v Banguiju sem že več let,...

Country Nr 60 – Cape Verde

Country 60/196: Cape Verde Destination: Sal island Our last African destination was a great one - Cape Verde or more precisely Sal island. It's hard not to fall in love with this tiny island in the Atlantic, which is located almost halfway between Portugal and Brazil. Desert landscapes, beautiful beaches, a colorful city, welcoming people, spectacular salt ponds, and a gorgeous resort to celebrate (and mourn) the end of a great adventure. It was an absolute pleasure! :) ♥ What to do and what to see on Sal? Cape Verde consists of 10 islands and 5 islets off the west...

Country Nr 59 – Central African Republic

Country 59/196: Central African Republic Destination: Bangui Our ministry of foreign affairs strongly advised us against visiting the Central African Republic as it has many safety issues. However, our project includes us traveling to all sovereign countries of the world, therefore, we had to make the trip. Still, we decided to only stay in the country for a day. Even though the government has recently reached an agreement with the armed groups the situation in the country is still far from stable, which was obvious by the number of armed soldiers and UN workers on the streets of Bangui. However,...

Edinstvena pokrajina, pogled na razkošno mestno promenado in reševanje onesnaženosti – z roko v roki

Angola se je po dolgi državljanski vojni komaj pred kratkim začela odpirati svetu, a glede na to, da ima veliko ponuditi, tako na ekonomskem, kot na turističnem področju, se bi znala kmalu znajti na seznamu vodilnih afriških držav. Potencial države sva spoznala, seznanila pa sva se tudi z nekaterimi izmed njihovih najbolj perečih težav. Najin obisk se je začel v srcu prestolnice. V simpatičnem hotelčku sredi širitve in renovacij sva se razpakirala in se po zakotnih ulicah peš podala proti središču mesta. Po skoraj neznosni vročini sva se prebijala po revnih umazanih ulicah, ki močno zaudarjajo po kanalizaciji. Mimo propadajočih,...
