known as Lapad beaches. These beaches are really beautiful and well used. Lapad is definitely one of the most beautiful parts of Dubrovnik and you really must visit it. If you take the headland path to the right hand side of Lapad beach, as you look at the Adriatic, you can walk along a charming little coast path with small concrete 'beaches' and ladders into the sea. These were put in during the Tito era and are ideal for one or two sunbathers. Walking further along is an excellent local fish

All are quite strong. There are many excellent local wines from both the Pelješac Peninsula and Konavle and it is often less expensive than soft drinks like Coca Cola. However, be careful when purchasing wine from unlicensed dealers. Though the price is very attractive with some being as low as 10 kn or €1.5 per litre

to slowly centralize the bureaucratic, tax, religious, educational, and trade structure. Unfortunately for the local residents, these steps largely failed, despite the intention of wanting to stimulate the economy. And once the personal, political and economic damage of the Napoleonic Wars (Napoleonic Wars) had been overcome, new movements began to form in the region, calling for a political reorganization of the Adriatic along the national lines.

contemporary political

, but, still..), Vladislav Skarić etc. What's my point ? HRE wants to present the early and late medieval history of what is contemporary Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina and parts of Croatia like Dalmatia and Dubrovnik as ethnically Serb, with, IMO, very visible contemporary political implications. This is not a presentation of some variants of historical discourse, but a national propaganda. Now-HRE is not completely one-sided in his approach, nor does he, according to the wiki record, see '''all''' things as black-and-white. He's a person one can talk to. He's someone I cannot help but feel an effection for. '''But''': 1. to "enthrone" HRE as an administrator would lead to endeless bickering & edit wars, especially over controversial pages . I think that virtually all Croatian and Bosniak wikipedians would be rather firm in not accepting his position, mainly because he's got a reputation of a denier of vital parts of Bosniak, Montenegrin and Croatian identity and history. The talk pages of a zillion articles would fill to overflowing 2. all HRE's "positive" and "neutral" contributions are overshadowed by his, IMO, very partial approach to sensitive issues that have been mentioned in others's comments. Sorry-no.Mir Harven (User:Mir Harven) 13:32, 23 April 2006 (UTC) #'''Oppose''' Holy is a great manipulator ready to lie in order to achive his goals. He spread propaganda all the time, everyone can check. This is what Holy said to one administrator about myself in order to block me: ''Greetings, vandal-fighter! I must say that I come bearing ill news, unfortunatly. I am an goodf (at least I think) historian, and am currently re-writing the articles of Doclea, Zeta (state), Rascia, Travunia, Zachlumia and Pagania. User:Emir_Arven is changing those articles. That would vandalism if he didn't actually think that way. For instance, he is deleting and changing (to a strange way) the beautiful lyrics of the poet Petar Petrović Njegoš (see?). I am afraid that my slow connection and little free time will not leave me enough time to revert all the incorrect date, unfortunatly. '''HolyRomanEmperor 19:44, 24 November 2005 (UTC)''''' And I have never visited Rascia, Travunia, Zahumlje and Pagania articles. As you can see above, he said: "User:Emir_Arven is changing those articles." Just check the history of these articles...He also did the same thing many times. I can quote all those cases (about alleged Vladimir Corovic source, about Ivo Andric, about Husein Gradascevic etc.). He is a great manipulator and nationalist. He put the source in the article and says it is a valid source, but when I check it, in most cases it is false. Also check his block log. He had many conflicts with Croat, Bosniak and Albanian users.--Emir Arven (User:Emir Arven) 14:15, 23 April 2006 (UTC) Special voyages ''Carnival Splendor'''s inaugural season began on July 2, 2008 with a cruise from Genoa, Italy to Dover, England, followed by a three-day cruise to Amsterdam.
