Jezera Paradise vacation in a horseshoe-shaped bay
BIG GAME FISHING
I f you look at any picture of Jezera captured from the air, the first thing you’ll notice is an interesting form of a horseshoe. Their name (the term Jezera in english means lakes) comes from large ponds produced by rains that flow into the valley. From times immemorial horseshoes have been a symbol of good luck, so we believe that holidays in Jezera will remain in your best memories! In addition to numerous wild coves waiting to be explored, at your disposal there are well-arranged beaches: Zaratić and Kučine.
The fans of walking and cycling will appreciate numerous paths and trails through olive groves and pine trees, and organized Nordic walking – one of the most effective and safest physical activities. If you would like to ride or participate in donkey and horse races, visit the farm “Kukurin”. For football fans FC Jezera organizes tournaments for children and adults, and association „Južne strane“ is renowned for wooden boat on Latin sail regattas. Pilgrims should visit Jezera on the feast day of Saint Costantius (May 4 and 10), to participate in the blessing ceremony of the Saint Nicholas’ church in the Murtar bay. A variety of possibilities for the practice of water sports can be discovered at the gravel/concrete beach of “Lovišće” tourist resort. A 220-berth Marina, boating academy and sailing school are also at guests’ disposal.
Famous BIG GAME FISHING competition takes place in late September – join the hunt for real fishing trophies, such as bluefin tuna, swordfishes and sharks! Enjoy performances by folklore groups from the region within Jezera’s sea days (from July 6 till end of September), presentations of original handicrafts and traditional cuisine (The Way Our Ancestors Lived and Celebrated), fig festival (August 17), harmony singing meet-ups, poetry nights… And when you get tired of partying, try some of the traditional dishes – simple but delicious fried pastry – prispalji, dried octopus with eggs, fish stew with potatoes and jezerski zelenjak!
