This small yet remarkably compact memorial is a delightful tribute to the life of the remarkable Croatian inventor, Nikola Tesla.

We were completely unaware that we would come across the 45th Parallel during our trip. We stumbled upon a magnificent monument and signs that clearly indicated our location as being halfway between the Equator and the North Pole. Unfortunately, I don't have the exact address for this place, but I'm confident that anyone in the town would be able to provide directions. The monument is situated right by the water, offering a stunning view of the Fortress across the bay to the south. I would have liked to include a photo, but I will only do so if it is permitted without disclosing the address.

This location transports you back in time, offering a truly charming and peaceful experience. The water here is refreshingly cold and crystal clear, concealing a surprisingly deep spring. We were oblivious to this fact until our friends, who had explored the spring, enlightened us.

The waterfall itself is absolutely stunning, however, the route to get there is overcrowded with people going in both directions, as the path continues past the waterfall. As a result, it becomes extremely challenging to capture a picture due to the large crowds.
