“The use of traveling is to regulate imagination with reality, and instead of thinking of how things may be, see them as they are.” – Samuel Johnson
Island of Lokrum is situated just across the Old Town. From the old harbour, inside the walls of the Old Town, grab a boat that goes regularly to the island. Immediately after arrival, you will notice that some of the pathways are made of pebbles. All the pathways are made by the owner’s wish, depending of the owner of the island at the time.
The guide that is going to be at the beginning of the day with you is going to explain why the exotic plants are planted and who took care of all the gardens. There are several myths evolving all the different owners of the island, so just listen to your story teller. After entering to the Maximilian of Habsubrg’s gardens, his summer residence and the whole monastery complex with botanical garden, fortress, Charlotte’s well and so much more you will see the true heart of the island. The rest of the day is for you to get sun tanned, eat Mediterranean food, drink cocktails and take mesmerizing pictures. Millions of years old rocks surrounding the island with clear sea views are the receipt for rested body and mind. + you get to hang out with peacocks and bunnies while they are running around you :)
