Vrana 2022

This Sunday it was the Orthodox Easter and husband and I decided to replace our mountain hiking with a stroll (7.5 km, 2.5 hours) in Vrana park. Late April - early May is the best time to visit the park, but it is always different on a different year. This time the magnolias were in their prime and just about to wither, the rhododendrons were at least a couple of weeks from blooming and carob trees were on the verge of blossoming.

The day was very warm and sunny and we had an extremely pleasant walk. Luckily, though there were people at the park, it was not like everybody and his grandma had decided to be there on Easter, so it was actually pretty quiet and calm, especially along the less popular alleys.
