Split City Wall gate photo - the story behind the scenes


The walk that resulted in this photo actually started with other plans. I wanted to visit the famous Diocletian’s Palace in Split, Croatia but since it was crowded there, I’ve changed my mind. That’s how, Daria and I, followed the tiny, white stone streets of the city, before we arrived at this well-illuminated gate.


Split City Wall gate photo – the story behind the scenes

Patience is a valuable quality, especially for photographers. I say it because taking this particular photo was a real challenge – groups of people kept on entering and leaving, or just standing in front of the small souvenir shop behind the gate. Nevertheless, we had plenty of time and besides – it was a nice, warm evening. The right moment finally came and I took my photo, trying to capture the ancient atmosphere.


Diocletian’s Palace in Split, Croatia

More resembling a fortress, the Palace was built in the beginning of the 4th century AD. The Roman Emperor wanted to have a nice residence for the days after his retirement.

Split has been founded as a Greek colony in 3rd or 2nd century BC. This Adriatic Sea city has had a turbulent history that includes falling under Venice rule, then – under Ottoman rule, and even surviving Communist regime as part of Federal Yugoslavia.

Today Split is the second-largest city of Croatia, flourishing as a popular tourist destination. Have it in mind next time you make your vacation plans!

Get it On Your Wall

It took us with Nico few minutes to book the flight to San Cristobal de la Laguna after we googled „the sunniest places in Europe in November “. Fact, there was not much choice – the rainy mood seems to spread over Europe in this time. However, what we found about Canary Islands surprised us enormously. The all Canary Islands seemed to offer sunny weather, palms and turquois view on Ocean. And Tenerife… Tenerife seemed to us to be different to all…

Do you know that in one small island you can have four (it’s not hyperbole) seasons of the year? With drive, over 20 km further north or south you can either experience summer or winter. This vision was too crazy for us to say it’s truth – don’t trust blog articles until you experience it by yourself. The prices of accommodation and renting car after first research appeared to us to be very friendly, so we didn’t hesitate too long.
