    Crkva Sveta Nedjelja is probably dedicated to Saint Kyriaki, Greek martyr who lived in late 3rd or early 4th century. Saint Kyriaki was named after Sunday, the day she had been born, and her name is known as Sveta Nedelya in Bulgarian and Sveta Nedelja or Sveta Nedjelja in the language used by Serbs, Croats, Bosnians and Montenegrins.

    The church Sveta Nedjelja stands on the smaller of two islands by the coast of Petrovac – Mali Katic – Small Katic. This, smaller island, is also known as Sveta Nedjelja because of the church.

    According to legend the church was built by the sailor who escaped on the island after the shipwreck.

    Katic islands and church Sveta Nedjelja can not be reached by regular boat line, but only by rented boat.

    Don't assume people are unhelpful

    It appears that when you encounter people in the local supermarkets, and in some of the local bars and restaurants, that they seem unhelpful and do not smile. From what I have read and experienced, people do not smile as we do in Britain. They have a job to do and just get on with it efficiently and promptly. They don't seem to bother with the manners that are important in some countries. Sometimes this can appear rude or abrupt to us, but it seems that this may be a cultural difference. A little of the language goes a long way too!
