  1. Senica katun is awesome. Gracious host, excellent food, and beautiful scenery.

    This katun is outstanding. The brothers Zeljko and Miso are extremely gracious hosts. From their welcoming to their farewell they made you feel like family. The food that Miso prepared was absolutely wonderful, authentic, tasty, and plenty on the table at all times. They even prepared one of their local dishes with a twist offered up by us to try. Fished in the pond and did really well, Zeljko is a very good teacher. We laughed and talked and ate til we were about to bust. So relaxing and peaceful. Can’t wait to come back for another visit.
