Between sea and mountains- old city Grobnik

The weather is weird. We have become like London because long ago it was a story that in London it rains so often that you couldn’t left the home without umbrella. We feel last month like we are in London J J. But despite it, I went out of the house on a short trip to our destination and it’s old town Grobnik. In fact I wanted to show you how nice is the place where we live , place where the sea and the mountains are not too far apart (about 1 hour drive by car). Proof of this is the old town, from which you can see the sea above the roofs of houses, but on the other side there are mountains with little snow (known as Grobnic’s Alps) . Also on one of the last pictures presented here in this post you can see runway for motorcylces (some of moto-guys were practising from nearby countries most of Italy).

And now a little about the place where the images were taken:

The old town Grobnik or Grobnik located in the village of Grobnik, the military and economically favorable place of Vinodol, on a hill above Grobnik field.

Historically, within the Croatian state, it is from the 10th century. From the year 1225 has the princes of Krk, which is from the 14th century called Frankopan.

It was built in the shape of a triangle, surrounded by a wall and towers.

Name Grobnik and its owners are mentioned in 1288 in the Vinodol Law Codex, one of the most significant legal documents of feudal Europe.

Kiss, Silvy
