Postcards from Dalmatia (Podstrana), Razglednice iz Dalmacije (Podstrana)









This is a new feature on my blog. In these 'postcards' posts, I will share with you my photographs of Dalmatian cities and villages and write a little bit about the place I'm representing in that post. Podstrana is a small settlement near Split (8 km from Split). According to historical finds, it was originally a Greek settlement but it also has Roman archaeological sights. Due to various archaeological finds, some have connected it to king Arthur (in accordance with recent historical theories that offer the possibility that he was Roman) but naturally such myth figures as Arthur do not really have historical status and hence anything about them is hard to prove. To me the history of this place is interesting enough in itself so I do not feel the need to question or think too much about such new theories, interesting as they may be. 

Nešto novo na blogu, naime u ovakvom tipu 'razglednica' postova, dijeliti ću sa vama fotografije Dalmatinskih mjesta i gradova i napisati ponešto o svakom mjestu koje predstavim u postu. Podstrana je naselje (i općina) udaljeno nekim osam kilometara od Splita. Povijesna nalazišta nalažu da je u početku bilo Grčko naselje ali također ima nalazišta iz rimskih vremena. Zbog raznih arheoloških nalazišta, neki je povezuju sa kraljem Arturom ( u skladu sa novijim povijesnim teorijama koje nude opciju da je bio Rimljanin), ali naravno takve mitološke figure kao Artur nemaju zaista povijesne status te je stoga teško išta zasigurno o njima dokazati. Meni je povijest ovog mjesta sama po sebi dovoljno zanimljiva tako da me te novije teorije baš i ne zaokupljivaju puno, iako naravno mogu biti zanimljive.

  1. Mi piace questo nuovo tipo di post ed è bello come Podstrana assomigli alle città del sud Italia!

  7. Radujem se ovoj novoj rubrici :) Što sam starija sve više volim istoriju, naročito te neke manje poznate činjenice. Svako mesto krije nešto posebno. Slike su predivne :)

    1. hvala, slažem se...meni se uvijek sviđa kako ti pišeš o povijesti svakog mjesta, ne samo o onima sa putovanja, nego i o malim mjestima u Španjolskoj.

    1. I like them but I can see why someone might think they're scary. Their beak is very sharp! Once I was bitten by one one year old seagull that I saved from the beach ( he recovered and flew away a day later)...I still have a scar on my hand.

  20. The city looks magical, so dreamy and pensive. I love such places a lot, I really think would love to live in such place where you are. Those snapshots are very beautiful, I love those portraits of a seagull, and the city view is also marvelous.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

A RED DRESS FOR A DINNER DATE AT RESTAURANT ASIA ( SPLIT, CROATIA)

If you know me, you know that I'll grab every opportunity to don on a statement dress. Life is to short to wear boring dresses. Nothing is quite as dramatic as a statement red dress, am I right or what? I was planning on walking miles that night, so I paired my red dress with comfy shoes, a straw bag and a pink blazer (just in case if it gets windy). I'm a fan of wearing dramatic dresses with comfy shoes, it makes them stand out more- and it can make the outfit not only more comfortable but also fresh. I wore this red midi dress with ruffled sleeves for a date night in Chinese restaurant Asia in Split (HERE- one of my favourite places to grab Chinese food in the city). I had a lovely time dinning there with my significant other. I pretty much always order the same thing: home made noodles with veggies and dumplings. As always, the food was yummy. This restaurant is located in my old neighbourhood Split 3 (address: street Poljička cesta 39 ) and I definitely recommend paying it…

SUMMER READING AND REREADING UPDATE: P. MERIMEE, F.S. FITZGERALD AND M. VUKOVIĆ RUNJIĆ

Hello, darlings! How have you been? I finally found some time to sit down and write this bookish post. I'll share some summer outfits with you today, but mostly I'll talk books. Yes, it's time for another reading and rereading update! Summer is such a perfect time to read, isn't it? I mean, don't get me wrong, I love to read all year around, but I still see summer as the ideal reading time. I wonder why is it so? Maybe it is somewhat on a subconscious level, seeing all those images of people reading on the beach.  Is it because summer is the traditional 'reading time' for many people? Is it because most people go on their vacation in the summer? Is it because most people use vacation time to catch up on reading? Is it the bookworm in me getting excited getting excited about making the most out of the 'reading season'? Is it the joy of reading in the open? It might be any or all of these things, but I do enjoy reading in summertime. How about you? D…

A FEMININE SUMMER STYLING FOR A SUNSET IN SPLIT CITY

As promised, I'm back with another travel post about Split city. What is summer without beach sunsets? What is the best way to experience sunset in Split city? Personally, I would always suggest a sunset with a sea view. If you ask me, when it comes to sunsets - the beach is the place to be. Nothing quite tops a beach sunset, does it? The way the sun seems to sink into the sea and set it ablaze. There is nothing quite like it. Experiencing sunset in Split city is definitely something I must recommend.Imagine a  magnificent view of the coast topped by impressive mountains that meets the Adriatic sea with its beautiful islands in the distance. No wonder that Split has the most amazing summer sunsets. 
In my previous post, you had the chance to see the city centre and ACI Marina in Split, today I'll show you Trstenik beach, Zenta Marina and Firule beach. There are many lovely beaches in Split city and the great thing is that most of them are located one next to the other, so you…
