Mr Nikola Piasevoli, amater photographer from Zagreb, was born in the town of Sali on the island of Dugi otok (Long Island), near the city of Zadar. We provide his beautiful photos of olives arround Sali. The olives are surrounded with hundreds of kilometers of stone-walls created by anonymous peasants during many centuries, in order to secure their living. The area is surrounded with amazing Nature Park Telašćica and the National Park of Kornati.
Mirogoj is one of the most beautiful city cemeteries in Europe. It has been designed by Austrian architect Herman Bollé, starting from 1879 to 1929 when it was completed. Many famous Croatians are burried there. Furthermore, with its pleasant atmosphere and numerous high quality works of art, it is a nice place for rest and meditation. All the photos have been taken by Mr. Nikola Piasevoli from Zagreb. With this presentation we wish all the readers of the CROWN and their families a happy Easter.
Nikola Piasevoli amateur photograper fell in love with the Botanical Garden in Zagreb and regularly pays visit on every season, from spring to automn. The Garden was set in 1889 as a gift from the City of Zagreb to the University. The only compensation for it was (and still is) an agreement to open the doors of the Garden to the visitors, free of charge. About 5500 taxa of higher plants grow in Croatia, which is more than in Spain (5050), France (4630) and Germany (3200).
