Monte Cassino (Italy) / samostan Monte Cassino u Italiji

When I arrived in Split last Sunday it was a wonderful sunny day but soon it started raining...This entire week has been marked by rain. Well, at least I have started to see flowers everywhere (always look on the bright side of life, right?) It's raining again today so that means another post about my short vacation in Italy last week. This time I'm going to write about Monte Cassino.

Monte Cassino is a monastery in the region of Cassino (Italy). It was originally founded by Saint Benedict in the sixth century and it is considered by scholars to have been one of the spiritual centers of Europe in the middle ages.  It is a beautiful and peaceful place and if you ever have the opportunity to visit it, don't miss it.

Ponovo nešto sa mog prošljetjednog putovanja u Italiju. Ovaj post posvećen je Monte Cassinu, samostanu kojeg je u šestom stoljeću utemeljio sveti Benedikt. Samostan se nalazi u općini Cassino u Italiji. Redovnici slijede moto reda kojeg je on utemeljio, a koje glasi "moli i radi". Tako možete vidjeti doktore znanosti koji obrađuju vinograde ovdje kraj samostana. Uz njegov grob, ovdje je i grob njegove sestre blizanke svete Skolastike koje je postavši redovnicom nedugo nakon njega, nasljedovala svoga brata u njegovom životnom putu. Iz samostana koji je na uzvisini pruža se lijepi pogled na okolicu, a u blizini se nalazi i groblje poljskih vojnika poginulih u Drugom Svjetskom ratu.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.
