Winter has arrived, not only on the calendar, but on the landscapes of Croatia. The first day of the year’s last season has been rather windy in Dalmatia. The extremely strong outbursts of bora wind (called bura in Croatia) have struck the settlement of Makarska, causing the cancellation of all ferry rides. The experts have calculated that the average speed of wind was around 105 km/h. And while sailors and fisherman were spending the earliest winter in their homes, sights of bora wind prompted numerous photographs to leave the safety of their flats and do what they like most. Here are several pics of the occasion.
Bora angers sea quite quickly. The waves raise high and clash on the shore banks, making most of the coastal promenades unapproachable. That is, unless you want to get wet quickly.
Ships are safe in harbor, but that’s not why the ships are for. Well, for whatever reason you’d use your own one; have it stationed at peace in the harbor. Just check out the pacing in the open sea on this photo.
As bora wrinkles the surface of Adriatic, it reflects the sunrays in all directions. Combined with foam which comes with such disturbance, the final result is that boats seem to levitate above hard quantities of light.
In case you would be able to hear the sound of this photo, it would make you very cozy next to the fireplace.
On the other hand, a wind jacket and wool socks are all you need to cloth in order to walk along the coast and witness the stunning beauty of Adriatic under influence of bora. As you can see on the photo above, your pet is welcome too, as long as you keep your distance from the sea itself.
Have sights of bora wind impressed you? Book your accommodation in Makarska and enjoy the pacing in real life.
