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.

3 AMAZING CITIES TO VISIT IN HERZEGOVINA BESIDES MOSTAR

My last post was about beautiful historical town Mostar, but today I want to show you other amazing cities in the region of Herzegovina. You guys know how much I treasure Mostar and how important it is to me. Mostar is the largest and best known city in Herzegovina, the cultural and administrative centre of this region you might say. Nevertheless, that doesn't mean that other cities don't deserve to be on your tourist radar as well. Honestly, one of the things that amazes me about Herzegovina is the diversity of its cities. Today I'll present three lovely cities to you: Ljubuški, Čapljina and Široki Brijeg. This is by no means a complete list. Another thing worth pointing out is that a lot of places  that get called cities, but in reality there are not that many cities in the whole of Bosnia and Herzegovina (only around 20). Popular tourist destinations such as Blagaj and Međugorje are often called cities while in fact they do not have a status of a city. 
As the name of …

Today I will take you on a virtual walk through Mostar city, more specifically through the old part of the town. Whether you're a history lover or not, the historical part of Mostar city will surely impress you. There is a reason why this place is so popular. It's an utterly beautiful area and it's extremely photogenic. I'm very excited I'll be sharing it with you today. Moreover, I'm going to give you some outfit tips for sightseeing the old bridge and the old city. As some of you know, I'm currently based in Mostar. One the benefits of being Mostar based is that the gorgeous historical centre is always available to me (Click here to see my most recent blog post shot at old bridge in Mostar) and that means I can give you good insider tips too.
These photographs were all taken last Sunday when we decided to go for a walk through the old city after mass. We walked from the Saint Peter and Paul church and monastery to the old bridge, through the old town and…

KATE KASIN LONG SEQUIN DRESS (REVIEW AND STYLING TIPS)

Hi everyone! Who else loves sequined dresses? If you're into the metallic dress trend, you might find this post interesting. As the title indicates, today I'll be reviewing a gold Kate Kasin sequined maxi dress. I'm also going to give you some tips on rocking sequined dresses. Firstly, it is good to remember there is a metallic shade for every skin tone and undertone. The same rules we use for choosing the right jewellery for our skin tone can be applied to sequined and metallic items as well. Generally speaking, silver items are recommended for colder skin undertones and gold items for warmer ones. However, there are exceptions. Not all gold tones are the same. For example, rose gold is said to look particularly beautiful on fair skin ladies. This dress happens to come in different colours and shades (rose gold, gold, black, red, silver, navy blue and turquoise). Being olive skinned and warm toned myself, I opted for a gold version of this dress. What do you think? Does …
