Lisbon: VIEW OF TAGUS TO WAKE UP TO (3)

One more thing I forgot to mention when it comes to first impressions... It was easy to find the hotel when I arrived to Lisbon, was not far from Praca do Rossio. The building was charming, even though old and somewhat "neglected". Lovely walk (upwards though) towards Largo do Chiado with that thrilling feeling of finally … Continue reading Lisbon: VIEW OF TAGUS TO WAKE UP TO (3)

Lisabon: BUĐENJE UZ POGLED NA TEŽO (3)

Jednu stvar sam zaboravila da pomenem, kad su u pitanju prve impresije. Bilo je lako pronaći hotel kada sam stigla u Lisabon, nije bio mnogo udaljen od Trga Rosio. Zgrade su bile više nego šarmantne, iako stare i, reklo bi se, „zapuštene“. Divna šetnja (iako uzbrdo) prema trgu Largo du Čiadu uz uzbudljiv osećaj da … Continue reading Lisabon: BUĐENJE UZ POGLED NA TEŽO (3)

Lisbon: LEGACY OF WORLD DISCOVERIES (2)

One of the things I was excited about when planning to come to Lisbon was the history of discoveries. Famous explorers took off to the unknown seas and lands, some of them starting their journeys from Portugal and Spain. Liked the mural depicting explorers from Lisbon’s metro station so much that I still cherish the … Continue reading Lisbon: LEGACY OF WORLD DISCOVERIES (2)

Lisabon: ZAOSTAVŠTINA VELIKIH ISTRAŽIVAČA (2)

Jedna od stvari zbog kojih sam bila izuzetno uzbuđena pre nego što sam došla u Lisabon, bila je istorija prekomorskih istraživanja i velikih geografskih otkrića. Čuveni istraživači su kretali put nepoznatih mora i zemalja, a pojedini su započinjali svoja putovanja upravo iz Barselone ili Lisabona. Toliko mi se dopao mural iz jedne od metro stanica … Continue reading Lisabon: ZAOSTAVŠTINA VELIKIH ISTRAŽIVAČA (2)

Lisbon: LOSING YOUR HEAD OVER THE CITY! (1)

Finally reached Lisbon. Wanted to see the city for so long and when have landed, couldn’t stop looking out of the window! Took the bus from the airport, it seemed like a good idea, since there was a stop at Praca do Rossio, and my hotel was not very far from there. Once again, just … Continue reading Lisbon: LOSING YOUR HEAD OVER THE CITY! (1)

Lisabon: KAD IZGUBITE GLAVU ZBOG GRADA! (1)

Konačno sam stigla i u Lisabon! Toliko sam bila nestrpljiva da dođem ovde da sam, kad smo sleteli, sve vreme zverala kroz prozor. Naime, na aerodromu sam sela u autobus, što se ispostavilo kao vrlo praktična ideja. Hotel mi nije bio daleko od stanice na trgu Praca do Rosio. Još jednom, isto kao kada sam … Continue reading Lisabon: KAD IZGUBITE GLAVU ZBOG GRADA! (1)

Barcelona: THE CITY NAMED BY HANNIBAL (10)

Took my small suitcase the next day and went to the airport. I am going to leave Barcelona for five days or so, and then come back, to spend few more nights here and catch the flight home. Waiting to board the plane, was just going over those places I have visited the day before … Continue reading Barcelona: THE CITY NAMED BY HANNIBAL (10)

Barselona: GRAD KOME JE HANIBAL NADENUO IME (10)

Spakovala sam svoj mali kofer sledećeg dana i otišla na aerodrom. Odlazim iz Barselone na oko pet dana, a onda ću ovde provesti još neki dan pre nego što se ponovo ukrcam na let za Beograd. Dok sam čekala da uđem u avion, vrtela sam u glavi sve što sam videla prethodnog dana, a što … Continue reading Barselona: GRAD KOME JE HANIBAL NADENUO IME (10)

Barcelona: ACHING FROM FLAMENCO… AND MY SHOES (9)

Had one more day to spend in the city, visited everything I planned to, and so, I was going to take it easy now. The whole day ahead of me to stroll, take few more pictures. It was still rushing through my head that I should "go there", or "visit that", but that pain in … Continue reading Barcelona: ACHING FROM FLAMENCO… AND MY SHOES (9)

Barselona: KAD SUZE UDARE OD FLAMENKA… I CIPELA (9)

Ostao mi je još jedan dan u ovom gradu. Obišla sam sve što sam planirala i nema više žurbe. Imala sam čitav dan na raspolaganju da se promuvam i još po nešto uslikam. I dalje mi je naravno „brzalo“ kroz glavu da bi „ipak“ mogla da „skoknem do ovog mesta“, „posetim ono“, ali tupi bol … Continue reading Barselona: KAD SUZE UDARE OD FLAMENKA… I CIPELA (9)

Barcelona: THE WHOLE OF SPAIN IN ONE VILLAGE (8)

Was so excited to go to the Montjuic mountain! Had a great day ahead of me, and have decided to begin my wanders from the beach! Sure, it was late November, not the swimming season, but it was sunny and breezy – just perfect for a walk! Went strolling once again down La Rambla (you can … Continue reading Barcelona: THE WHOLE OF SPAIN IN ONE VILLAGE (8)

Barselona: ČITAVA ŠPANIJA U JEDNOM GRADU (8)

Ponovo me je sačekalo lepo jutro, koje sam ovoga puta odlučila da delimično provedem na plaži i odatle počnem dalji obilazak grada. Prilično sam se radovala što ću danas ići na brdo Monžuik! Jeste bio novembar – nije vreme za sunčanje ili kupanje, ali je bilo vedro uz slab vetrić, upravo savršeno za šetnju pored … Continue reading Barselona: ČITAVA ŠPANIJA U JEDNOM GRADU (8)

Barcelona: STEPPING ON JOAN MIRO (7)

Back from Figueres, time to look for that Picasso Museum in Barcelona, but also to chase the landmarks of the city which were actually the legacy of the great artist Joan Miro. Already knew that Picasso Museum was in Montcada Street in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona. Prepared myself for waiting in line to get in. … Continue reading Barcelona: STEPPING ON JOAN MIRO (7)

Barselona: KAD GAZITE PO MIROU (7)

Vratih se iz Figeresa, vreme je da se posvetim Muzeju Pikasa, ali da pronađem i mesta po kojima je Barselona toliko poznata, a što je zapravo zaostavština i čuvenog Žana Miroa. Već sam znala da se muzej Pabla Pikasa nalazi u Montkada ulici u Gotskoj četvrti. Pripremila sam se da čekam u redu kako bih … Continue reading Barselona: KAD GAZITE PO MIROU (7)

Barcelona: OFF TO FIGUERES TO DREAM WITH DALI (6)

Another beautiful morning. Late November, but sunny, around 17 degrees, just perfect for an excursion out of the city. And what an excursion that is going to be! When ever thinking about traveling to Barcelona, I always reminded myself that I would have to take an extra day to escape the city into a village … Continue reading Barcelona: OFF TO FIGUERES TO DREAM WITH DALI (6)

Barselona: PRAVAC FIGERES, U DALIJEVE SNOVE (6)

Još jedno divno jutro. Jeste da je skoro kraj novembra, ali je napolju 17 stepeni – taman kako treba za kratak izlet izvan grada. A kakav će to tek izlet da bude! Kad sam razmišljala o dolasku u Barselonu, uvek mi je u glavi bilo da ću svakako da odvojim jedan dan da zbrišem u … Continue reading Barselona: PRAVAC FIGERES, U DALIJEVE SNOVE (6)

Barcelona: THERE’S PICASSO, JUST AROUND THE CORNER! (5)

One of the districts not to be missed in the city is certainly Barcelona's Gothic Quarter. It stretches along La Rambla Street and it radiates its own charm. There is nothing you can compare to a walk along those too narrow streets, among building walls so high and thick with just a hint of daily … Continue reading Barcelona: THERE’S PICASSO, JUST AROUND THE CORNER! (5)

Barselona: ENO PIKASA, ODMAH IZA UGLA! (5)

Deo grada, koji obavezno treba videti u Barseloni, jeste Gotska črtvrt. Pruža se duž La Ramble i odiše sopstvenim šarmom. Šetnju kroz ove uske uličice, među zgradama teških, visokih zidova i uz dnevno svetlo koje se tek pomalo promalja odozgo, odande gde se zidovi završavaju, teško da možete da uporedite sa bilo čim. Brojni fenjeri … Continue reading Barselona: ENO PIKASA, ODMAH IZA UGLA! (5)

Barcelona: CASA BATLLO AND SAGRADA FAMILIA (4)

My favorite spot in Barcelona is probably Antoni Gaudi's Casa Batllo building. Just couldn’t wait to get there, to look at it up close. Could not even believe that it actually is that colorful in person. And it was more than I could have ever expected! It was kind of a venture to get into … Continue reading Barcelona: CASA BATLLO AND SAGRADA FAMILIA (4)

Barselona: GAUDI I SAGRADA FAMILIA (4)

Moje omiljeno mesto u Barseloni je verovatno Kaza Batlo, zgrada Antoni Gaudija. Nisam mogla da sačekam da odem i to da vidim, izbliza. A onda sam u neverici buljila u građevinu, koja je onako vedrih boja i uživo. Premašila je moja očekivanja! Treba napomenuti da je prosto bio poduhvat da se čovek domogne Gaudijevih zgrada, … Continue reading Barselona: GAUDI I SAGRADA FAMILIA (4)
