Pirates of the Adriatic

Back from the former capital of the notorious pirates of the Adriatic. Jack Sparrow? Pha, a pussy to the bandits of Senj. Well, at least if one can trust the jingoistic texts displayed in the local fortress. Though the museum would be advised to model the manequin heads after Johny Depp. Or at least reduce them by a third of their current, unflatering and questionable size. More on this later.

If Senj is known for one thing, it is the strong Northern winds.

If eyes are windows to the soul and windows are eyes of the building, what are the curtains?

    Thanks for this post. My wife and I have added Senj to the list of places that we want to visit.

    Wow, those Uskoci must have been tough, fighting the Turks and the Venetians!

    Respect.
