I’m going to visit Croatia in couple of months so I need detail map of Croatia in which popular places should be highlighted also road map should be included
One to go along with your travel brochure for visual overview:
Few more detailed maps on this site:
Also, please get in touch with Andrea, the Croatian travel writer and host, who could supply you with valuable information in advance:
What do you mean by detailed? Are you looking for topographic maps?
@elisafrag Maybe we can help somehow? We have a ton of things on the site that can help you map out a trip or take you to popular and off the beaten path attractions
Interesting. I have an online friend whom I met editing her articles submitted to Pleistocene Coalition Newsletter. Vesna Tenodi is an archaeologist trained in her native Croatia but spent most of career in Australia where she set up a studio in the Blue Mountains creating sculptures based upon petroglyphs of the Wandjina. These were people some archaeologists thought preceded the Aborigines who arrived some 60,000 years ago. Aside from their distinctive art little is known about them. Due to vandalism of her art work and death threats, my friend was forced to return to Croatia two or three years ago. Vesna and her husband run a studio, gallery and instructional center there. From what she told me about Croatia, it seems a place I would like to visit but I don’t think it’s in the cards this time around.
@TexArcana This is truly interesting, thank you for sharing. I was not aware that those glorious Blue Mountains still carry such tension and violence (just checked Vesna’s page: http://modrogorje.com/truth-in-art/aboriginal-violence/). Perchance she could write an article and submit her experiences to Atlas Obscura? From what I gathered on her pages, she is also an amazing artist.
Asta, I received a message from Vesna, at academia.edu, where she publishes many of her papers, almost at the same time I received your message here. In response to her comments to me there I told her of your interest and I will forward your comments to her personal email to see if she is interested in submitting something here. Ves has had many fascinating experiences in researching the remote areas of Australia where the Wandjina paintings are found. She was good friends with an archaeologist who was the premier investigator of the Wandjina who had a collection of Wandjina artifacts from sites he would not disclose publicly due to the Aboriginal vandalism of Wandjina paintings. I’m certain she has much to tell that would be of great interest to Atlas Obscura readers.
