"If you're a stranger and you have to reach the mainland of Hochlands,you have to ask to the seaport security a permission to do that.
So,with a dirty,simple and ruined paper of the local sea transport company "Koterlinien",with the texts written in German,Croatian,Slovenian and Italian,I finally got on the boat to Dobrau..."
"...We knew that we were arrived when ,in a desolate landscape with few forests,we saw a village where all the houses had black roofs.
At the same time,a boat's bell rang and a voice yelled "WIR SIND ANGEKOMMEN! STIGLI SMO!" in german and then in croatian.
The boat made a curve,after the village,and we entered in a creepy and narrow fiord. After 10 minutes,we saw a lovely town completely sorrounded by hills.
It was Dobrau,we were arrived!"
Dobrau (Dubrava in Croatian,Slovenian and Italian,Dőbrő in Hungarian) is a strategic town,located 40kms north of Passein,built in a narrow fiord,that makes Dobrau an ideal repair for boats and battleships.
Dobrau is one of those towns in Hochlands that make a municipality,that for the Hochlands' law is a piece of territory,very similar to a district,that has other villages or towns that are under the administration of a specific town. The opposites of the municipalities are the "Cities/Free Cities".
In this municipality there are 2245 inhabitants.
2000 of them live in Dubrava itself,while 210 live in the village of Srendau (Srendovci in Croatian and Slovenian,Serindano in Italian,Serrő in Hungarian) and 35 live in the small village of Dobrauer Schwartzdorf (Dubravsko Crno selo in Croatian,Dubravsko Črno selo in Slovenian,Cerno di Dubrava in Italian and Feketfalu in Hungarian).
The ethnic composition is...:
70% Croatians,18% Slovenes,5% Italians,6% Hungarians and 1% Austrians.
Dubrava is also an important ferry port and railway station. There are no road or railway links to the western part of Hochlands,except if you take a boat to Passein,or if you continue to the north,where road and railway links to the west are insured.
