How to Find Best Photo Worthy/ Instagrammble Places in Split City, Croatia? (part 1)

How to find best picture worthy/ instagrammble places in Split? Today I'm sharing with you my tips for finding the best locations in Split city, Croatia. I can even give you a bit of insider perspective as this is a city I was born and raised in.  I don't live there anymore, but I still visit it pretty often. If you've already visited Split or you plan to visit it again, this post might be of some interest. Some of my photography tips are pretty generic and can be applied to other towns as well. Anyway, if you are about to shot some photographs in Split, this is what I advise you to look for: 

1. PORTS AND MARINAS

Ports and marinas are usually more than picture worthy. What says vacation better than being surrounded by ships and yachts? Marinas and ports are dynamic places by nature, with ships always coming in and out of them. Moreover, ports and marinas convey a feeling of perpetual movement. If there is something magical about the sea, what place captures it better than a marina? Perhaps only a beach? But unlike beaches which are often all about chilling and relax, marinas stand for sailing and exploration of the sea. There are a few lovely marinas in Split, all of them worth a visit, I might add. The one I shot in most often is Zenta. I've spent a lot of time there as a kid, and I guess I'm still attached to it.

2. OLD CITY CENTRE, HISTORICAL AND TOURISTIC SIGHTS

Main attractions in a city are usually main attractions for a reason. I wouldn't recommend skipping on famous sights while you're in Split. After all, when will you have a chance to visit the oldest preserved cathedral in the world again? Or the second oldest synagogue in Europe? Exactly! Taking a photograph in front of tourist sights is almost a right of passage when you visit some place, isn't it? If you want to stand out of the crowd, you can always get there early when there isn't anyone around or get creative with your photography. I do recommend visiting the old city centre. Most of the historical and touristic sights make for a great shooting location.

3. UNIVERSITY CAMPUS, MODERN CONSTRUCTIONS AND URBAN ARCHITECTURE

Besides its rich history, Split has a lot to offer in terms of modern urban architecture. I did recommend visiting the old centre of the city, but that doesn't exclude discovering the more urban & new areas of the town. I always say that the best way to discover a city is on foot. So, take a walk and see what Split has to offer in terms of modern architecture. Personally, I'm a big fan of many well known Split's architects and their work. I sometimes stroll  certain  neighbourhoods just to admire the design of its buildings. One of the places I definitely recommend visiting is the University campus. 










4. BEACHES AND SEA PANORAMA


Let me tell you, Split has got some stunning beaches. Which ever you choose, you won't be wrong. I would personally recommend visiting them all. The ones I visit most often are Trstenik and Zenta, because they're the closest to where I usually stay when I'm in Split. If you don't want to get too far from the city centre, then the best option would be the most famous beach- Bacvice. This sand beach is a very popular spot. However, as I said I would recommend you exploring the other ones as well.






That would be all for today. Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you have enjoyed this post. Let me know if you would like to read more posts of this sort. P.S. How come it is July already? Welcome July!

  6. You are lucky to live somewhere with so many beautiful spots for photos - you know how to find some lovely backdrops for your outfit pics! I tend to take photos in the same spot every day as it's easier, but I'm looking forward to changing things up a bit when the boys are older and I don't have to worry about them running away as I setup my tripod, haha!

    Hope you had a wonderful weekend :) We caught up with family visiting from WA and went to the winter wonderland in the city, it was a lot of fun :)

    1. yes, the countries I live in are very photogenic. There is a great variety of architecture, both old and new. I can imagine it must be challenging taking photographs with small kids, but a simple background also has its advantages, it makes a reader more focused on clothes.

  9. These are surely no shortage of photogenic places in Split. I feel like you can never go wrong somewhere down by the water. The views are always scenic not to mention it's just so relaxing to spend time in those spots. I love hanging out down by the river where I live.

  10. Soo many gorgeous places, wow! You know hun, we were actually considering Croatia for our next holiday, and I think we might visit the year after next. It looks so beautiful and I am dying to visit your national parks - I've researched a little and they look absolutely stunning, perfect for a nature lover, like me. :) Split looks so pretty and I am especially loving the beaches! You can't beat a nice beach. Personally, I prefer quieter and less touristy beaches as well, and Croatia seems to have lots of those which is awesome. :) Thanks for sharing, my lovely. xoxo

    1. yes, there are both kind of beaches, for me the best thing to when you want to avoid a sea of tourists is to check out what beaches are popular and then go in the opposite direction.

  12. I enjoy reading this post! Split sounds super duper interesting. Ports and marinas? Wow, that's something I don't get to experience in my town here even though I could just drive down the small countryside coastal town in half an hour! If I speed or go during low traffic that is. Looking at your photos with the beach in the background is making me want to go to breathe in the ocean and its immensity! And saltiness, lol. You look gorgeous in all of the photos dear :) xoxo

  14. Great for you to showcase the beauty of your hometown. Many of your outfits look great to me in these pictures. I am most fond of the black polka dot dress with the peep-toe orange pumps. Wonderful job here, Ivana.

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.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
