island Visovac, Croatia (travel post)/ otok Visovac, Hrvatska (putopis)

Island Visovac is a magical place, I don't know how to describe it it any other way. No wonder, for it is situated in national park Krka and has a long and interesting history. I really enjoyed my short stay there and felt very inspired by its serene environment. The national park Krka I have visited before, but this March was the first time that I have visited  this island. The way to get there is by a boat. In the season (spring and summer) there is a boat every hour or so and the fee isn't high (something like 10 euros I think).  We didn't have to pay anything, because it had been Sunday so the boat was taking the people to mass for free.

On the island of Visovac a catholic monastery is settled. In fact, the whole island is the property of the catholic church. However, it is open to everyone( a lot of tourists visit it) and you don't have to be belong to any particular religion or be religious at all to appreciate its beauty.

The origin of the monastery goes back to the 14th century, when it was founded by Augustian monks. In the 15th century it was enlarged and adapted by the Franciscans due to the fact that it provided sanctuary for the friars and the people from some parts of the Bosnia who fled before the Turkish invasion. In the 18th century a new monastery was build.

I wasn't sure how many photographs to include because I wanted to make sure that if you ever visit you still have something to see for yourself. At the same time, I wanted to share with you my impressions and show you just how unique this island is. It feels so surreal to be there, it really is such a special little island. I hope that I have found a balance and provided you with a glimpse into this amazing place. I love to read travel post so I hope this one isn't too bad and that you'll enjoy it. xoxo
