A SHORT VISIT TO SPLIT CITY/ WHERE TO DINE AND WHAT TO DO?

Today it is time to show you a few photographs from my visit to Split city last February. I had planned to visit Split this March as well, but so far I haven't managed to do it. That doesn't mean that I won't. March isn't over yet, right? Anyhow, today I'll show you what I did in Split last February. I already told you about visiting my family in Jelsa, island Hvar, and now the spotlight is on Split.


Do you remember that grey DIY dress I showed to you last autumn? That was the first 'real' dress I made (using a sewing machine). Before this one, I had only made a couple of summer dress and I sewed those by hand. This was the first proper dress I made and I absolutely love it. Bellow you can only see it partly (as I styled it with a faux fur and leather coat and boots), so I'll include a prior photo of it as well. 



This is how I styled it recently. These two photographs were taken in front of a buildings that has recently been turned into an university building.  Over the years, the university collage in Split has been growing. It seems that some of the faculties are also moving into buildings in this area. Did you know they have Korean studies in Split now? I didn't, until I read it from the board on this buildings. That's really cool. I wish they existed in my time. I could have studied Korean. But I suppose it is never too late to start. It is lovely to see my city change in front of my eyes.


In the evening I wore the same coat but paired it with jeans and sneakers. We went for a little stroll by the sea, which is something you should totally do if you visit Split city. There is nothing more beautiful then sunsets by the sea, is there? I love Split's sunsets, they are always so beautiful. Besides walking around, what else have we done? We also dined in our favourite Asian restaurants. 

ASIAN FOOD IN SPLIT CITY

Where to dine in Split city? I always stop by two Asian restaurants that are located in my old neighbourhood (called Split 3). The first one is called Biser Orijenta (Pearl of Orient), the second is called Kineski restaurant Asia, Hong Yung (Chinese restaurant Asia)  and its address is Poljička cesta, 39.  Both restaurants are located in the walking distance of one another. I ate in both of them when I was in Split. I usually do. The food served is mostly Chinese cuisine, but on the menu there are also some dishes from other Asian cuisines. Last time we were there (in Pear of Orient), we wanted to order sushi but the main chef had to leave, so we ordered something else (bamboo and chicken soup for start and meat dumplings and noodles with vegetables for the main dish). However, half an hour later the chef returned and he insisted on bringing us a portion of sushi on the house, so we had that too. I was super full as you can imagine. Anyway, I can definitely recommend these two restaurants. I had a really good experience in all Asian restaurants in Split city, but these two are my  personal favourites. 



 I hope you've enjoyed this Split getaway with we. There is always lots to do and see in Split city. Let me know if you would like me to talk more about it more in the future post. Today I've kept it short and sweet, but you know that I can write much longer posts, so if you want to see and read more about Split city, write so in the comments. I blogged about Split a number of times, so not to repeat myself , I'll include some links to my previous posts and you check out them as well. 



That would be all for today. As always thank you for reading! Have a lovely day.

  7. What a beautiful city to enjoy the sun setting! Walking on the beach early or at the end of the day is so peaceful. Your grey dress is so perfect to style in so many ways. Asian food is so yummy. We try to recreate dishes at home that we have had in restaurants but we can never get make them quite right!

    1. thank you dear. I do agree. It is so peaceful to walk on the beach early or late in the day. I know what you mean about Asian dishes. I tried to recreate them at home, and while they didn't turn out badly, they were not as delicious as those in restaurants.

  8. You did such a wonderful job on that dress and I love how you styled it in two totally different ways. It always sounds like there are fun things to do and nice places to dine at in Split. It must be lovely to have seaside view everywhere you go as well.

  9. Split sembra proprio il posto perfetto per passare qualche fuori città in tutto relax!
    Le foto sono belissime e molto suggestive, si vede proprio che è un posto tranquillo e ben tenuto!
    E ancora complimenti per il tuo abito, considerando che è il primo che hai realizzato con la macchina da cucire, ti è venuto benissimo! E ti dona anche molto quella linea! :)
    Baci!

CROATIAN FASHION WEEK: MATEYANEIRA FASHION ILLUSTRATION IN WATERCOLOUR

I can't really attend fashion weeks because I work full time, but with the help of the internet I get to follow fashion weeks digitally. One of the benefits of living in digital times, I guess. If you remember, I have already shared a number of fashion illustrations inspired by  spring/summer fashion weeks on this little blog of mine ( Valentino Spring Collection 20191 & 2, Zuhair Murad Spring Ready To Wear 2019 collection1 & 2Louis Vuitton Spring Collection 2019 ). Please don't click the links to buy the illustrations, they won't lead you anymore as my art store was lost and it will take me a while to manually remove all the links (I'll explain this later on in this post, for now let's concentrate on positive things like this cute new fashion painting I'll share with you and the design that inspired it).
 I was a bit late with catching with Croatian fashion week because I've been busy with work. About a week or so ago, I finally found the time…

IS MOSTAR A GOOD EASTER DAY DESTINATION? PLUS A SPRING OUTFIT PROPOSAL

Luckily for me, Mostar is an excellent Easter day destination. You see, I had travel plans for this Easter weekend, but I caught a bad cold so I decided to stay in the city I'm currently based in. That's actually not a bad thing because (if you ask me) Mostar makes for a great Easter day destination. Naturally, I've would have loved to visit my family, but since that wasn't possible, I'm happy to be spending Easter in Mostar. I've already cleaned and decorated my home for Easter so I'm all set. I've also prepared an outfit proposal but more about that later on. First I'll talk a bit about Mostar. Why is Mostar such a great spring destination? I can think of a number of reasons, but from top of my head I would say wonderful climate, beautiful landmarks and interesting history. Mostar is gorgeous in spring time. With its seven rivers and a number of lovely parks, Mostar can feel like a city oasis.


 Spending Easter in Mostar is something I would defin…

TROGIR CITY (PART TWO): KAMERLENGO CASTLE AND OTHER SIGHTS

KAMERLENGO CASTLE AND FORTRESS 

As I promised in my last post, my description of  wonderful Trogir city continues. Today I'll show you the city's promenade, its walls and a historical fortress Kamerlengo. We'll start with the latter, as it is one of the main attractions. Castle and fortress Kamerlengo was designed and constructed in the fifteenth century by a local Croatian builder and sculptor known as Martin Radoj. Martin also worked on some of the Gothic elements of Trogir city cathedral and later on in life he was entrusted with the construction of Trogir port. The fortress was commissioned by the Republic of Venice, hence its name 'camelengo ' that is an Italian version of chamberlain. I didn't go inside of  Kamerlengo fortress this time because I've been there before so I just enjoyed observing it from the outside. Besides the Kamerlengo castle, today I'll also show you the city walls and other details from Trogir. Enjoy. 



Once again, here is a li…
