Croatia

Last month, we drove from London to Croatia. (Yes, it was long.) I hope this can give you a little insight into my travels!

Rovinj

After our arrival, we travelled to Rovinj, a small city on the west coast of the Istrian peninsula of Croatia. It sweetly imitated the narrow cobbled streets of Venice, alive with romance and beauty. There was an equilibrium between a lively, but quiet and tranquil atmosphere. It overflowed with nostalgia and history – if you are a hopeless romantic, this is the place for you.

Little stores and markets are dotted along each street, in particular perfumery shops, diffusing a sweet fragrance outside into the alleys. Having ventured far into the little streets and passages of the town, I found myself wondering what era I had stepped into. At the top of Rovinj, there was a church. A beautiful, grand building overlooking the whole town.

Below are a few photographs I took there. Enjoy!

Pula

We also travelled south to Pula, yet another historic city in Istria. The main attraction was the Roman amphitheatre, a piece of architecture dating back hundreds of years. We were able to visit a little museum underneath the amphitheatre, which showcased preserved items including rows and stacks of pots.The town itself, like Rovinj, was accented with historic charm, reflecting with an era, which in London, seems to have been forgotten.

Here are a few photos…

I hope that this blog post was somewhat interesting, and I will definitely try to incorporate more of my photography as it is a passion of mine! Thank you for reading ♥
