Sights to see, places to visit (+outfit post) / Znamenitosti za vidjeti, mjesta za posjetiti (+ odjevna kombinacija)

I'm starting a new feature on my blog called Sights to see, places to visit and this is my first post of the kind. Today I have for you one dinning recommendation and a bit of history to spice it up. That doesn't sound too bad, does it?. So if you ever happen to come to Mostar, I recommend you to visit one pub that besides a wonderful selection of beers, also serves exquisite wines (this is a wine region after all) and delicious dishes. 

When I first came into Mostar, I have fallen in love with one particular street. It was the trees that so enamored me. They belong to the Platanus family of trees and in English they are called plane or plane trees. Thanks to this pub's website I have learned that these trees were planted in 1889 to welcome Belgian Crown princess Stephanie and Crown prince Rudolf of Austria and celebrate their visit to Mostar. 

Let's get back to the way this history information connects with the pub I just recommended visiting. You see, many villas in this street date from the nineteen century. Moreover, one of them was recently restored and turned into a pub called Štefanijino šetalište (Stephanie's alley/ Stephanie Alle).You see originally this street with these two rows of these wonderful plane trees was named Stephanie Alle in honour of the visiting Belgian princess (today it is known as street of prince Branimir). Interesting, isn't it? I've never thought about this street as a historical sight to see, but it really is.

Započinjem novu rubriku na blogu koja će se zvati Znamenitosti za vidjeti, Mjesta za posjetiti, a ovo je moja prva objava na tu temu. Danas za vas imam jednu preporuku i malo povijesti. Ne zvuči tako loše, zar ne? Naiđete li slučajno u Mostar, preporučavam vam da posjetite jednu pivnicu koja osim što ima odličan izbor piva, služi i vrhunska vina (ipak je ovo vinska regija) i ukusna jela.

Kada sam prvi put došla u Mostar, zaljubila sam se u jednu određenu ulicu. Stabla su bila ta koja su me zapravo oduševila. Prekrasni i ogromni Platani. Zahvaljući stranici pivnice koju sam vam upravo preporučila doznala sam da su ova stabla zasađena dane 1889. godine za doček i proslavu dolaska Belgijske princeze Štefanije i Austrijskog prijestonasljednika Rudolfa.

No, kakve to zapravo ima veze s ovim povijesnim informacijama? Veliki broj vila u ovoj ulici datira još iz deventanestog stoljeća, a jedna od njih je nedavno obnovljena i pretvorena u pivnicu koja se zova Štefanijino šetalište. Ova ulica (danas ulica kneza Branimira) nekada se zvala Štefanijino šetalište. Zanimljivo, zar ne? Nisam nikada razmišljala o ovoj ulici kao o nekoj povijesnoj znamenitosti, ali ona to zapravo jest.

  46. Kako lepo i romantično mesto! Toliko je lepih stvari oko nas za koje i ne znamo. Uvek se reklamiraju neke velike, pompezne, a ovakve ostaju nezapažene.

    U turističkoj ponudi, u nekim zemljama, postoje i ovakve stvari. Jednostavno, dođeš u neko mesto, na neki događaj i dobiješ i male karte, veličine vizit kartice na kojima piše sve šta ima po okolini. Tu su, naravno, i kontakti, pa ko želi, može da ode i vidi. Ima čak i kontakt ljudi koji se bave nekim zanatom, kreativaca... Svega, što se meni baš sviđa, jer onda se vidi da se radi globalno, a ne samo pojedinačno.
    Nažalost, kod nas to nije praksa, a bilo bi lepo da jeste.

  54. I love learning such historical facts a lot, it's hard to believe that those trees were planted in 1889. How amazing is that, indeed. They were there before us and they're still going to be there after we're gone.
    The photographs are fabulous, Ivana, you look more than charming there in that elegant outfit and the background is very attention catching too.
    Now I'm planning to read your literary work, I mean a story written by you - "Conversation". I'm definitely going to share my opinion about it, as soon as I read it:)

HOW TO STYLE RED CLOTHING ITEMS FOR WINTER?

A few posts ago (yes, bloggers calculate time in post activity), I wrote about red accessories for winter but I also wanted to write about red clothing items you can wear this time of year. In fact, I was planning to write a big post about wearing red in winter but I realized that I need to split it in two because it was too long. Apparently, I have a lot to say about why wearing red in winter is a good idea. So, today I'll basically post the part two of my red in winter fashion musings. Red is a bold, energetic and dramatic colour. If you ask me, wearing red is a great way to invoke good luck in our new year. You can pair red with neutral colours to tone it down or with vibrant ones to make your outfits even more noticeable. Lunar Year festivities are a perfect time to embrace the red clothing items. Moreover, Valentine's Day is not too far off either. If you're looking for some winter red outfit inspiration, you have come to the right place. HOW TO WEAR RED IN WINTER?   My…

READING UPDATE: KAZUO ISHIGURO, THE BURIED GIANT AND MORE

Hello dear readers, how's life treating you? It's time for another reading update on my blog. You guys know that I'm a bookworm and a reading addict, right? Today I have a couple of book reviews to share with you. I'll be reviewing four books (more precisely: two novels and two short story collections). It's a mixed crowd of writers that I'm reviewing, from Nobel winning Kazuo Ishiguro to some other well known authors. So, let's get started. Scroll down to read my opinion of these books.  THE BURIED GIANT, A NOVEL BY KAZUO ISHIGURO 5/5 Having seen a fascinating interview with mr. Ishiguro about this very book, I had high expectations for The Buried Giant. I'm happy to report that my expectations were fulfilled. Once again, Kazuo Ishiguro impressed me his subtle and beautiful writing. This novel is a masterpiece. The Buried Giant is very moving tale of an elderly couple in search for their lost past. Axl and Beatrix share a strong connection, but just lik…

10 STYLE LESSONS LEARNED FROM MALENA/ MONICA BELLUCCI

With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…
