Hey Ante and gang. Maybe you guys should let Jarred know about this thread and make it a permanent forum so that all the newbies from Europe will sign in. In this way, they won't have to go through all the other threads to dig this one up. Maybe you can call it something like ; Bananas Discussion - Europe Section

Good job Ante for this idea. Only if we have enough people from my region to start a similar section on Bananas Growing in the Tropics and talk Pisang, Kluay and what nots!

This summer has been so kind to Central Europe climate so far... although the winter was very long, it surprised everyone with its immediate leave early in April and almost instantenous coming of temperatures above 20°C (day) and 10°C (night).
Now, the spring has moved it's mood to another level. We'll soon hit 30°C (Ante, for comparison, weather in northern Croatia is almost the same as here, except of course, that we have less rains and a little bit hotter and drier climate in summer - reason is Danube Delta, but that's for a very long talk...)

So, this weekend, marvelous 28°C, with last rain 7 days ago and next one to come some time in 2 weeks or so... .

Now to your burned leaves... My Musa 'Super Dwarf Cavendish' are burned as well, but from the cold spell they survived about 2 weeks ago during the night (8°C - yes, they survived with just a little minor burn, I'd guess about 5 hours of intense cold spell).
So much to pushing its own limits, ey...

So far today: 28°C in day, 13°C (the lowest) in night...

Yes, I know, Adratic sea. Do you know the motto of our travel agencies? If no, it goes like this:

Do you know where the Slovak sea is?
In Croatia, of course.

I also enclose a map showing where you (probably) are and my location. Funny, so distant places and quite a similar daily temperautures... And night sometimes, because the hotter it gets in the day, the hotter it remains for the night... (A is you, B is me, no need to tell, right...)

Nice motto.
My brother went to Slovakia four days ago and he is coming back today. Says that it was great trip.
We are little waried about tourist seson this year, every body is talking about that global crises but I hope that will go as usuall and that there is going to be a lot of Slovaks here. Have you been here?

I've been to Croatia many times, Makarska, Split, Vodice... lots of fun there.
Vodice were quite a hot climate actually but so cold water (6 days of cold water out of 10). If it had over 22°C, I'm going to eat my shoe (it was in July). Other than that, perfect. I liked the girls as well, but only then found out that many were from Hungary and Slovakia (just kidding, your girls are lovely to watch and talk to)
The problem there generally is with the sea is, that if it rains too much one day, the water remains cold for another 3 days.

Here, in the southermost Slovakia, we have the drinking water level so low (7m), that after the gravel has been gathered (about 1 meter layer - Danube Delta), artificial lakes are created, large enough for you not to see the other side of the bank. And once they heat up, they stay hot (27°C) almost till september. That's why I'm not used to cold water.

Our Slavic cultures are (fortunatelly) much alike, I believe that's the reason why we have little or no problems fitting in each other's communities, getting to know people and meet new friends quickly.
There are people here at my university, that are descendants of Slovaks living in the Croatia and Serbia (from the times when the Osman Emire conquered the Balcan region (sorry, but it is the only precise term, southern Europe was never invaded) and southern Central Europe and the "migration of nations" began).
They are fluent in Slovak and as I've been discussing the differences among our cultures, they said, it's pretty small, if any.
My personal experience with Russians, Croatians, Ukrainians... only confirms it...

And finally, this year might be quite bad. Out of 1,5 million Slovaks that travel round the world in summer, about 1 million travel to Croatia. However, the crisis has been bad to our nation (and other, that I was able to see in Croatia during holiday). Germans, Czechs, Hungarians, Slovaks... many people have lost their jobs, the businesses have almost stopped and you can see, that people don't buy more, than they actually need (and sometimes even less, than they need).
I'm afraid, that there'll only be about 100 000 people (estimate of our ministry of work, social affairs...) travelling on their holiday abroad this year from Slovakia... most of the people will settle with their own possibilities (lakes in Slovakia, Balaton and other in Hungary, thousands of people will invade our mountains (Tatra and Carpathian mountain region)...).
As I've said already, the business has stopped and it's not likely to move, unless all the reserve materials, products etc have been depleted.

O, Jack
I dont belive is such black scenario. One way or other many Slovaks will get here. We are famous destination for last minute guests. Only thing that is going to be much different is lenght of vacations. There is going to be more 5-7 days shifts than usuals 7-10 days. At leest that is what it looks like now, we have had a more tourists from Easter till now than last year but they are staying shorter time.
If U decide to visit I can arrange U accomodation and special member discount in one of ours rentals in Baska Voda.
