City on a grain of salt. Tuzla means a place of salt and it lays on top of the salt lake. It is suspected it has been there for around 7000 years as one of the oldest places in Europe.

Alija Djerzelez House

Do you like the picture?
I bought it the other day in Sarajevo as a present to the friends of mine who got married recently.
I bought it straight off the artist, Davor Rehar, that is, and he explained to me that this street still exist in Sarajevo, called Sagrdjije Street. The house in front is the house of Alija Djerzelez, epic Bosnian hero.
Enjoy your day wherever you are!

It's a beautiful painting that would fit into any decor. What a lovely, thoughtful gift. I envy your friends!

I would like to bestow upon you The Schmooze Award which reads: The 'Power of Schmooze Award' is The Award for bloggers who “effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship". If you wish, the icon is on my blog. You can bestow the award on 5 different people, but it's not necessary. Have fun with it!
