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!

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.

A RED DRESS FOR A DINNER DATE AT RESTAURANT ASIA ( SPLIT, CROATIA)

If you know me, you know that I'll grab every opportunity to don on a statement dress. Life is to short to wear boring dresses. Nothing is quite as dramatic as a statement red dress, am I right or what? I was planning on walking miles that night, so I paired my red dress with comfy shoes, a straw bag and a pink blazer (just in case if it gets windy). I'm a fan of wearing dramatic dresses with comfy shoes, it makes them stand out more- and it can make the outfit not only more comfortable but also fresh. I wore this red midi dress with ruffled sleeves for a date night in Chinese restaurant Asia in Split (HERE- one of my favourite places to grab Chinese food in the city). I had a lovely time dinning there with my significant other. I pretty much always order the same thing: home made noodles with veggies and dumplings. As always, the food was yummy. This restaurant is located in my old neighbourhood Split 3 (address: street Poljička cesta 39 ) and I definitely recommend paying it…

SUMMER READING AND REREADING UPDATE: P. MERIMEE, F.S. FITZGERALD AND M. VUKOVIĆ RUNJIĆ

Hello, darlings! How have you been? I finally found some time to sit down and write this bookish post. I'll share some summer outfits with you today, but mostly I'll talk books. Yes, it's time for another reading and rereading update! Summer is such a perfect time to read, isn't it? I mean, don't get me wrong, I love to read all year around, but I still see summer as the ideal reading time. I wonder why is it so? Maybe it is somewhat on a subconscious level, seeing all those images of people reading on the beach.  Is it because summer is the traditional 'reading time' for many people? Is it because most people go on their vacation in the summer? Is it because most people use vacation time to catch up on reading? Is it the bookworm in me getting excited getting excited about making the most out of the 'reading season'? Is it the joy of reading in the open? It might be any or all of these things, but I do enjoy reading in summertime. How about you? D…

A FEMININE SUMMER STYLING FOR A SUNSET IN SPLIT CITY

As promised, I'm back with another travel post about Split city. What is summer without beach sunsets? What is the best way to experience sunset in Split city? Personally, I would always suggest a sunset with a sea view. If you ask me, when it comes to sunsets - the beach is the place to be. Nothing quite tops a beach sunset, does it? The way the sun seems to sink into the sea and set it ablaze. There is nothing quite like it. Experiencing sunset in Split city is definitely something I must recommend.Imagine a  magnificent view of the coast topped by impressive mountains that meets the Adriatic sea with its beautiful islands in the distance. No wonder that Split has the most amazing summer sunsets. 
In my previous post, you had the chance to see the city centre and ACI Marina in Split, today I'll show you Trstenik beach, Zenta Marina and Firule beach. There are many lovely beaches in Split city and the great thing is that most of them are located one next to the other, so you…
