    Telašcica - stone house

    the old stone house
    4 more images

    As already mentioned in my intro, Telascica isn't part of the Kornati National Park but since partly inhabited and having pretty big port it is the only place where touring-boats could stop. The house, you could see on my pictures, is very typical stone made house which used to built local farmers. It is usually of a very simple interior construction, with one or two rooms only. One is kitchen and dining room but only during cold and windy winter periods, while the other is bedroom.
    In front of the house doorway is small yard which serve as a kitchen and dining room, usually from April to October or even November. Under the shadow of a tree is placed stone made table and smallbenches, made of stome aswell. It serve as a dining room during most of the year.

    Quiet little chapel in the middle of nothing

    by JLBG Updated Feb 24, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I wonder who might be coming to this chapel ? May be there is a celebration once a year ? Is there anyone that has a clue and able to answer ? It would not have been safe to moor in front of the chapel as there is no shelter at all.

    Added february 2007. I have now found that this chapel was named "Gospe of Tarca" (the Church of Our Lady of Tarac). As can be seen on the photo, it is a one-nave rural Late Romanesque church built on the foundations of a Late Christian basilica. The remains of the basilica were most probably used in the construction of the new church. The period of construction of the Church of Our Lady of Tarac is unknown. It is assumed that it dates from the period between the 12th and 16th centuries. Every first Sunday in July, a service is held in this church. It is no longer just a religious event. It has become a tourist attraction as well. (burrowed from the official Kornati web site)

    ''Gore Vrulje'', looking northwestwards

    by JLBG Updated Nov 14, 2004

    On the right is Kornat island, with Mala Proversa hidden in the background. On the left, it should be Otok Levernaka. I will check that on marine charts but I have not them at hand right now, I have to look for them.

    Here we are, Vrulje, bird sight !

    by JLBG Updated Nov 14, 2004

    When you can climb to some elevation, always do it ! You will always be happy with this (little) effort ! Yachts with a small drought can moor on the quays on the left of the picture. Larger must swing in the bay. Only the smallest boats can moor on the right of the picture.

    Mason required in Vrulje !

    by JLBG Updated Nov 14, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This picture was taken in 1990. I am sure that since then, the mason has fixed this cute little house ! I hope that the village will not be spoilt by to much grooming and that if new houses are built, they will match with the look of the village.

    Nice path !

    by JLBG Updated Nov 14, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    With such a nice path, it would be a shame not to go inside the island and reach some hill summit, even if the weather is dull. There will be anyway a great view with various landscapes, inland and seeward.

    Vrulje, anchor first, drink later

    by JLBG Updated Nov 14, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Along the quays, the water is not very shallow. You have better to have a boat with a small draught, otherwise, you have to anchor in the bay. The first time I came here, I was able to moor to the quay. This time, the rented boat could not and we had to anchor in the middle of the bay.

    Vrulje at last

    Vrulje

    Vrulje finally, the "capital" of the Kornat. It is inhabited only in Summer by the owners of the houses, living in Murter. After a long day of sailing, the sight of such a sheltered port is the first reward. The second will be a good drink.

    Climb to the top !

    Such a small boat !

    In the Kornati, always climb on top of the hills. It is not easy as the dry vegetation half hides the rocks and their cracks but you will be fully rewarded by the sight. There are 147 islands and islets of various size in the Kornati archipelago !

    View of the Bay at R.Zakan Island

    by Glaros Written Oct 1, 2004

    It's a small walk to the other side of the island, where there used to be the Club Med.
    This is the view of the bay where we stayed.
