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.

WHAT DRESS TO CHOOSE THIS AUTUMN? SPECIAL OCCASION OUTFIT IDEAS

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…

Fashion Illustration Friday: Inspired by Colours of Autum

Time for another Fashion Illustration Friday talk. We'll talk autumn and share some new autumn inspired fashion illustrations & outfits. Autumn is a season with one of the most beautiful colour palettes. Just think about all those gorgeous gold and red leaves! Even the fruits of Autumn are visually stunning, for example the delicious and juicy fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. With so much to appeal to our senses, it's hard not to be appreciative of autumn. It is a stunning season indeed, so small wonder I was inspired to create some fashion art.

AUTUMN COLOUR COMBOS TO CONSIDER
Besides enjoying the colours of autumn, I sure love wearing colour in autumn, and that's what I'll write about today. Whether we're talking about accessories or clothes, a bit of colour can take us a long way. Here are some illustrated & photographed colour combos to consider.

HOW TO STYLE TARTAN IN A CASUAL WAY? OUTFIT PROPOSALS + FASHION ILLUSTRATION

I was thinking about why I like tartan pattern so much, when one reason crossed my mind. I figured that it probably has something to do with the history and the culture behind this particular pattern. After all, I always say that traditional and folklore clothing (be it original or reproduced) carries additional value. Traditional patterns can be such an wonderful source of inspiration. Traditional patters have soul to them, one might say. The history of tartan is particularly interesting. Today we mostly associate tartan with Scotland, but according to some historians, tartan like fabrics were used by ancient Celtic populations spreading across the British Isles as early as the sixth and the eight century BC. Well, that one old pattern for sure! However, even if tartan clothes are really as old as ancient Celts, it is the still Scotland that is responsible for tartan we know today. Did you know that different tartan patterns can represent different Scottish families? Something like …
