vrnik kamenolom.3This tiny island Vrnik lies next to the island Korcula in Croatia. Vrnik is irreplaceable place in so many ways. Nowhere else I have sensed such tranquility and perfection.

But this small island used to shine with world-wide fame and glory. It used to be a very well-known limestone quarry. People from Korcula and Vrnik were very skillful working and selling their stone all over the Adriatic area. Most of the important buildings in this area are done in Vrnik’s limestone: in Venice, Dubrovnik, Hvar, Kotor… But also stone from Vrnik could be seen on some remarkable buildings elsewhere, such as: the Town Hall in Stockholm, Hagia Sofia in Istanbul, the White House in Washington, the parliament in Vienna.

I try to visit Vrnik at least ones a year. It makes me keep contact with my inner self.
