Dubrovnik beginnings

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays!

September 28, 2012

We woke this morning to this amazing view! Our very humble accommodation was in the Monastery Svete. I can't tell you enough about this place. It was perfect! We were greeted by by Sister Janja Boskovic. I think that you would pronounce her name as Hanah as “J” in Croatian is “H” in English. She was a lovely lady and went out of her way to be helpful. She didn’t speak English and I don’t speak Croatian but this monastery also houses students who are studying at the University. Sister Janja quickly found a student who could translate and we were complete. Our rooms, each had an e-suite, some had cooking facilities all were air-conditioned.. The one that I shared had neither and our bathroom was across the hall. I was a little concerned about the lack of an en-suite but my roommate said ok so we went with it. When everyone had left we opened the shutters and low and behold this is what we found! 

We had the most amazing view of the Old City of Dubrovnik!  As I said this was very humble in relation to hotels but this accommodation was so close to everything and the price was right, very right for Dubrovnik. If you are looking for an accommodation in Dubrovnik you can’t go wrong by booking in at:
Monastery Svete,
Marije Krucifikse, 15 /
Ask for Sister Janja Boskovic.


  1. Didn't know that you stayed in a monastary.How very interesting !!
    Sounds wonderful. Keep blogging it ..are you going to do this when you go to India?
    Dubrovnik looks beautiful..didn't Mum and Dad go there once??

  2. I'm not sure about Mum and Dad's visit to Dubrovnik but I wouldn't be surprised as they did go to what was Yugoslavia.
