In its new incarnation since 1996, Mandrogy is unashamedly a tourist attraction. More than 200 people live in the village permanently, and a similar number arrive during tourist season to help run the village, living there to show how the early populations did, perhaps as long ago as the 12th century, perhaps only since the 15th century. There is also a hotel and restaurant for tourists.
When we reached Mandrogy on our holiday with Viking River Cruises, the weather was quite dreary, and much walking appeared to be in order so, once again, my intrepid photographer went off with the rest of our tour group while I remained aboard the Viking Surkov, enjoying the comfortable library, the deliciously sinful pastries at the free coffee station, and even a nap in our cabin. At home with Dick's photos on my large computer screen, I found shadows will almost always find a place to lurk, whatever the weather.
