Lo que dice el Arxiduc:

“The high central peaks of Mount Ravna are populated by holly oaks and ash trees up to the road; beyond that, with the dense foliage cut by the road, along with the bay in the background resembling a lake, there is a fascinating image of abundance and coolness. The slopes below the road with hanging ivy are generally covered in grape vines. The grape vine trunks are not spread out lengthwise as is the custom, but twisted on horizontal stakes nailed to vertical poles. Opulent fig trees and other fruit trees grow amongst the vines. The slopes are broken into three capes, irregular prolongations of the primary heights. Towards the inner valley of Buccari (Bakar), the grape vines increase progressively in number, especially on the gentle slopes at the foot of Mount Cesta, slopes known as “Lazi”. Where they level out at the back of the valley are the ruins of a country estate, in a picturesque setting and covered in vines. Here, the common snapdragon, absinthium, soft violet Verbascum phoeniceum and the Physalis alkekengi with its orange-coloured carpel multiply inside the ruins and line the threshold of the that was once inhabited, joining up to the windows of this abandoned house with the tendrils of the ubiquitous ivy as well as the reluctant sprouts of grape vines.”

A.L.S.: Buccari, Prague 1871

Datos proyecto Nixe III:

We didn’t have the opportunity to climb Mount Ravna. Instead, we climbed Mount Gradac where the ruins of Bucarizza’s castle can be found. Numerous fir trees dot the area. Fir trees can be quite tall, growing up to 50 metres high. The tree can be recognised by its short (up to 3 cm long), linear and densely packed leaves, with an opening at the apex. It can also be recognised by its straight, cylindrical pine cone, measuring up to 20 cm long.


Lastly, the Archduke also described some species of plants on his trip to Bakar which we did not see, in general. These include Verbascum phoeniceum and Clematis vitalba.
