The Croatian Town of Cres
 
In a sheltered bay on the narrow island of Cres, surrounded by hills covered with olive trees, lies the small town of the same name.
In one corner of the old port, many of the smaller boats moor. Together with the colourful houses, the scene reminds me of Venice and the island of Burano. This is probably not surprising when you see how close we are to Venice and, that for a period of time in its history, this part of Croatia was ruled by the Venetians.
