Duljevo Monastery

Budva, Montenegro

According to oral tradition, Duljevo Monastery was erected in the 14th century during the reign of Tsar Dusan, at an altitude of around 450 metres, on a plateau above the Monastery of Praskvica. The Monastery was a part of the Decani Monastery and, after taking their vows, the monks often went from here to Decani.

As opposed to the other monasteries in Pastrovici, Duljevo has only one church – dedicated to the Saint Archdeacon Stefan. In the past, the monastery was badly damaged on several occasions, but the people of Pastovici always managed to reconstruct it. Its special value is a fresco in the older part of the church, and this great treasure of fresco paintings was discovered after the earthquake of 1979, when part of the building collapsed. Duljevo also had a monastery school.

The moment I crossed the main gate 2 dogs came barking at us. It was on 15th June. I went to see how an Orthodox church looks like but sadly couldn't because of 2 unleashed dogs.

The monastery, the atmosphere that reigns there and the nature that surrounds it will leave you breathless. Real enjoyment, calmness, grace. You will drink water from the source of St. Sava ("Sava's water"), rest in the shade of an oak tree in which, according to tradition, the Saint rested. It is located near the monastery of Rustovo. I recommend that you walk from the highway (from the parking lot of the Praskvica monastery), uphill, visit the Rustovo monastery and continue to Duljevo, which is located near it.

Seaplane Harbour Museum

The Seaplane Harbour is the newest and one of the most exciting museums in Tallinn. It tells stories about the Estonian maritime and military history. The museum’s display, that comprises of more than a couple of hundred large exhibits, revitalizes the colourful history of Estonia.

British built submarine Lembit weighing 600 tones is the centrepiece of the new museum. Built in 1936 for the Estonian navy, Lembit served in the World War II under the Soviet flag. It remained in service for 75 years being the oldest submarine in the World still in use until it was hauled ashore in 2011. Despite its long history, Lembit is still in an excellent condition offering a glimpse of the 1930s art of technology.

Another exciting attraction is a full-scale replica of Short Type 184, a British pre-World War II seaplane, which was also used by the Estonian armed forces. Short Type 184 has earned its place in military history by being the first aircraft ever to attack an enemy’s ship with an air-launched torpedo. Since none of the original seaplanes have survived, the replica in Seaplane Harbour is the only full-size representation of the aircraft in the whole World.

Simulators mimicking a flight above Tallinn, around-the-world journey in the yellow submarine, navigating on the Tallinn bay make this museum heaven for kids or adventurous adults.

Seaplane Harbour operates in architecturally unique hangars built almost a century ago, in 1916 and 1917, as a part of Peter the Great sea fortress. These hangars are the World’s first reinforced concrete shell structures of such a great size. Charles Lindbergh, the man who performed the first solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean, landed here in 1930s.

On the outdoor area visitors can tour a collection of historic ships, including the Suur Tõll, Europe's largest steam-powered icebreaker.
