Croatia – the scars

In September / October 2008 I visited Croatia; starting at Split and then by ferry to Hvar.

A previous post “Croatia – in and around Dubrovnik” can be accessed / searched on this blog for more information.

There are also other recent posts under the same title “Croatia” with photos only.

  1. The word “scars” can be misleading when people assume the scars are all from the 1990s. Plenty of these scars date from WWII – and some buildings were damaged by accidents. The second photo down looks like it’s from Sućuraj on Hvar, where an American jet went down in an anti-Fascist raid.

    1. The 2nd photo was from somewhere I stopped between Kupari to Plat (during my trip from Cavtat back to Dubrovnik). The buildings were scarred by war, accident, wear and tear, and so on. I am not sure when this happened.

      1. Oh, yes, there are so many scars from so many different decades and in so many cities and villages, they can look identical – especially when bathed in clear Croatian sunlight. These are troubling but awesome photos. Glad I found you!
