CHRISTMAS IN TRIBUNJ

It was nice Christmas morning when we decide to go in Tribunj - small place near Sibenik. Few days ago we heard about galley that is moored in that port. Of course it is not a real old boat from that time, but copy made for movie. Anyway we wanted to take a few pictures and felt a spirit of old times.

Beautiful old part of Tribunj is located on small and low island. On the top of island there is a St.Nicolas church built in 1452 with about hundred houses. Streets between them are so narrow, that they are invisible from the see side. Island is connected with coast by small bridge.

The ship was built a few years ago. After the movie was made, ship was sold, and today is used as a tourist boat. Last summer it was possible to see this galley in Dubrovnik. Tourists on the ship were dressed in folk costume. Click here to see full sized picture
