If one knows the (political) relations between two former brotherly Yugoslav republics, Croatia and Slovenia, one understands that joining forces in organising the Porsche Parade Europe was an interesting, perhaps even a brave, decision. Not that it matters much to the participants, though: the most important thing for them is to visit some of the most
stunning sights in both countries during an extended weekend. Ladies and gentlemen, please relive fast games without frontiers, composed from numerous individual stories. Lakes are pretty. So are islands. Now then, imagine an emerald lake with an island in the middle and a church on top, surrounded by deep green forests and alpine peaks. Yep, Bled might have come straight from a fairy tale. Well, there is one thing that might be missingâ€ŚA castle perhaps?
