Finally, here is the weekend, the sun is out so one can make a trip in nature and explore old Dalmatian places
. This week, Gornja Podstrana
was on our program. It is a cute Dalmatian place on the main road from Podstrana on the way to Split
, which looks very attractive. When we climbed the winding road, we found a crowd of people gathered outside the church. After the Mass, the traditional Way of the Cross
was organized starting from Church of Our Lady of the Rosary heading to the Church of St. George on Vršina
. It was nice to see how the local permanent and temporary residents of all ages, and their friends keep the tradition united in song and prayer. Specifically, Way of the Cross to the Church of St. George on Vršina was built in 2009, with the considerable effort and commitment of locals of Podstrana.
In addition to this lovely traditional customs, we found the old stone walls of the buildings in Stara Podstrana, but also some new renovated stone house decorated in a traditional Mediterranean style. The view from Gornja Podstrana
is really stunning and it goes over the whole Podstrana
, cities Split
and islands of Brač
, Šolta, Hvar
. It is an ideal vacation place for those who enjoy the wilderness and unspoiled nature, where the sea and the beach are not in the first place. Given today’s increased demand for vacationing in nature
and away from the city noise, Gornja Podstrana is placed right in this category because it has a really great potential. Gornja Podstrana
already offers accommodation in traditionally decorated facilities to its guests. Distance from Gornja Podstrana to attractive beach is about two kilometers, which makes it more interesting to potential guests.
