Remember Julia Robert's first (?) movie "Mystic Pizza"? It was shot in a town mysteriously named Mystic, in a pizza place the scriptwriter chose because of the 'slice of heaven'-pizza. Well, I was to find out about the mystery. Especially since, after having pizza in many countries, I still think that the best pizza in the world you get in Croatia. It's true, trust me. Mystic itself seems a sleepy little town beautifully located at the shore. It was sunday when we went for a stroll, and it was quite and somewhat deserted, but the little shops, restaurants, a seaport, an aquarium and various museums make it a popular vacation spot. Interested in "Mystic Pizza" and the mysterious pizza? Please, read my review about it.

Remember Lynyrd Skynyrd? Yeah, that's that classic rock band, the one that gave us timeless songs like 'Sweet home Alabama' and 'Freebird'. They were the reason I went to Mystic - Lynyrd Skynyrd had a concert at the "Mohegan Sun Casino", and no way I was to miss that! My gratitude goes to my friend Eric, who knew exactly what he was doing when suggesting it to me (great minds think alike :)). The 'Mohegan Sun Arena' is relatively small, and I'm glad it is, because I find that much better than huge stadiums where you can't see the stage. It was awsome!

You can find a review about the "Mohegan Sun Casino" attached.
