Dubrovnik accommodation

When  you key in your Google search engine: Dubrovnik accommodation,  the globalization kicks in. If you have keyed in this phrase you will see exactly what I meant by globalization kicking in.

According to the data provided by the Ministry of Tourism registration engine: E-visitor, 2.6 million tourists visited Croatia in June 2017 which is up by 31% in comparison to the record breaking 2016.

When it comes to the most popular destinations, Dubrovnik firmly holds pole position with Zagreb following closely and Rovinj ,Poreč and Split as runners up. Split is becoming extremely popular due to the fact that it has cultural heritage as well as it is the hub for the islands of Brač, Hvar and Vis.

The globalization has set some firm standards and today no-one travels without an insurance policy. And this is rightly so especially when it comes to the hospital network of public institutions on the Adriatic coast. Zagreb is a story on its own because it is there where the country’s best hospitals are concentrated. As for Dubrovnik’s medical story, if in need it is good to know of  Marin Med Clinic and Private Hospital existence. It comes in handy to know that it accepts all major insurances  and it offers first class medical care. It is at disposal 24/7 to its clients and you can beat the waiting time otherwise spent in public hospitals.

If you know come to the beginning of this story you will know realize why Dubrovnik private accommodation is flourishing. Simply there is no enough hotel capacity in Dubrovnik to accommodate  all of its visitors. Although the numbers are great for the Croatian economy, this type of tourism is far from being sustainable and the practice of the town folk living for the tourist season ought to be replaced with the one that will witness Dubrovnik citizens living with the visitors to the Peal of the Adriatic.

Magic of Montenegro is unprecedented. Many people around the world have probably just yesterday heard about this small but proud country, situated on the southern coast of the Adriatic.  Yesterday, Donald Trump, the president of USA has welcomed Montenegro to the league of NATO.

It does indeed has the second biggest canyon in the world with the river of Tara flowing wildly in the country’s north part. Adding to this is  Durmitor National Park with the rarest species of plants and trees, Rijeka Crnojevica park of nature  not forgetting Skadar lake which is a natural border with Albania. The country’s coastal part is a symbiosis or nature and culture. Montenegro’s three bays, Herceg Novi, Tivat and Kotor ,this last one resembles Norwegian fiord are intertwined with the towns after which they are named. Kotor does indeed have the richest past as it was allied with the Venetian Republic. The town’s naval tradition has largely contributed to the naissance of Peter the Great’s fleet. The southern coastal town of  Ulcinj because of its proximity to the Albanian border has an architectural influence of the Ottoman Empire.

Since gaining its independence in 2006, the country has attracted investments in the tourism, real estate and energy sectors. It does have the second biggest marina in the northern Mediterranean, Porto Montenegro is a mega yacht – real estate-hotel complex marina. Currently there are works being underdone for the even bigger complex of this sort named Porto Novi after the town of Herceg Novi.

Hotel in Montenegro!

The first thing you type into your Google search engine is „hotel in Montenegro“ once you have previously discussed it with your partner to discover this mesmerizing country. I write counrty not a state to avoid possible misconception. Yes  indeed we are talking about small Southern-Eastern European country with a stunningly changing contrast of mountains and seaside coastline, resulting in one and only South European fiord otherwise known as Kotor Bay.

Montenegro, country of its 600,000 proud inhabitants derived its independence from Serbia in 2006 and never looked   back since. Strongly gearing towards Euro-Atlantic integrations, the country has recently put in an application to join NATO. Ever since it gained its independence, Montenegro focused on the development of tourism building first class hotels and marinas. Porto Montenegro is the biggest super yacht marina on the Adriatic with the flagship Regent Porto Montenegro hotel. Previously, hotel Splendid, another five star hotel  in Montenegro has the only heliodrome in the region, needless to mention that the Queen of Montenegro is a queen in a true meaning of the word for dice lovers.

It is also worth mentioning that trendy St Stephen’s resort is now Aman Resort and One Resort is going to introduce its only European resort as part of the Porto Novi development. However, the country is working hard to improve its infrastructure although popular seaside destinations, Kotor, Budva and Tivat even Bar and Ulcinj are beyond recognition. The second keyword you are to key in is heath care or medical care in Montenegro. As for doctors in Montenegro, the options are a bit limited. Marin Med Montenegro is the only first class private medical needs provider which operates  within Kotor General Hospital and has exclusive access to hospital’s departments in Kotor and Kotor doctors. It operates as a concierge service for its clients and works the internationally recognized insurance companies and medical assistance facilitators. The fact that it is a sister company of Marin Med Dubrovnik also helps as it can respond quickly in the emergency situations as it is only 45 minutes reach from Dubrovnik Croatia with fully operating facilities and latest technology medical devices especially in the field of radiology.

Bolesti modernog doba – multipla skleroza ili MS!

U današnjoj svakodnevici se susrećemo sa sve većim brojem mladih ljudi koji su oboljeli od tkz bolesti modernog doba. Jedna od takvih bolesti je i multipla skleroza ili MS.

Riječ je o autoimunoj bolesti središnjeg živčanog sustava koju karakterizira povremeni ili progresivni gubitak senzornih, motoričkih i kognitivnih funkcija. Kod većine bolesnika ova bolest se javlja u dobi između 20. i 45. godine života, sasvim rijetko prije 15. i nakon 55. godine, a zanimljivo je da žene obolijevaju dva puta češće od muškaraca. Interesantan je i podatak da je bolest češća u zemljama koje su smještene između 40. i 65. stupnja sjeverne geografske širine.

Po svojoj definiciji, MS je upalna autoimuna demijelinizacijska bolest središnjeg živčanog sustava koju karakterizira upalna reakcija i potom propadanje mijelinske ovojnice produžetaka živčanih stanica koje služe prijenosu impulsa između živčanih stanica. Karakteristično je stvaranje tzv. demijelinizacijskih plakova (ožiljaka) u strukturama mozga ili u kralježničkoj moždini, na mjestima nestanka mijelinske ovojnice. Budući da mozak i kralježnička moždina imaju velik rezervni kapacitet, mnoga područja upale mijelinske ovojnice u početku bolesti neće pokazati nikakve simptome.

Manje promjene koje zahvaćaju mijelinsku ovojnicu usporavaju provođenje živčanih impulsa i obično ne uzrokuju nastanak simptoma bolesti, ali se smatra da su odgovorne za nastanak simptoma opće slabosti na koju se često bolesnici žale.

Simptomi MS ovise o mjestu zahvaćanja i jakosti upale mijelinske ovojnice aksona i to je razlog zbog kojeg su simptomi bolesti različiti, a tijek bolesti teško predvidiv. Kod većine bolesnika simptomi se pojavljuju povremeno, a s progresijom bolesti se mijenjaju u jakosti i trajanju. Početni simptomi su najčešće subjektivne smetnje osjeta, smanjenje oštrine vida, gubljenje snage u jednom ili više ekstremiteta, dvoslike, poremećaji ravnoteže i vrtoglavice, smetnje kontrole mokrenja i stolice. Mogući su i poremećaji koordinacije pokreta, tremor, skandiran govor, pojava spasticiteta, mentalni poremećaji i to najčešće depresija. Multiplu sklerozu nije lako dijagnosticirati jer ne postoji određeni test kojim se nepobitno dokazuje, niti karakterističan simptom bolesti. Dijagnostika počinje detaljnom anamnezom i kliničkim pregledom bolesnika. Nakon toga se laboratorijskim testovima isključuju drugi mogući uzroci simptoma. Karakteristične pretraga MS-a su analiza cerebrospinalnog likvora, evocirani moždani potencijali, magnetska rezonanca (MR) mozga i vratne kralježnice, a po potrebi i cijele kralježnice.

Prof.dr.sc. Vesna Brinar, pročelnica Odjela za poremećaje ravnoteže i vrtoglavice u Referentnom centru za demijelinizacijske bolesti središnjeg živčanog sustava KBC-a Zagreb ujedno posjećuje Polikliniku Marin Med u Dubrovniku, te primjenom svoje metodologije u većini slučajeva stavlja bolest pod kontrolu.
