Krk...Croatia's Sunny Island

1

One exceptionally nice and beautiful island is "Krk". Croatia used to be part of Yugoslavia and is located next to Slovenija and not far from Italy. If you are planning on spending some time in the sun...

Krk is the place to be! Although it gets really hot in the summer, there is always a light breeze coming from the ocean. There are only a few towns on the island and the most beautiful ones are: Baska, Krk, Omisalj, Njivice, and Vrbnik. They are all located at the coast and have gorgeous old and leaning houses, painted in pretty colours.
Croatia’s ocean is very warm and clear and when snorkeling, you will see lots of fishes swimming around you. They offer many boat trips around the island and that’s a nice opportunity to see Krk from the ocean and also its neighbour-islands .

Krk is famous for its extraordinarily good olive oil. Plenty of olive trees grow around Punat (a town close to Krk-town). They use olive oil a lot in their kitchen. You should eat out a lot anyway…it’s DELICIOUS! One of my favourite dishes is “Surlice”, which is Croatian-style pasta. Don’t miss it! To take a look over the island you can climb Mount Obzova. It’s pretty easy to reach the top and takes you about one to two hours. From up there you have a breathtaking view over the whole island. What a nice place to be in!

    A Vintage Gallery of Art School Classes

    If formal training alone is not enough to make great art, then being in a room full of like-minded people might be another form of encouragement. To see fellow artists labor over the tiniest detail, to feel the depth of their ambition, to be part of this silent energy—these are priceless perks. The following photographs of University of Art and Design from the 1920s let us sit in on some of these busy classes.

    When the Soul Speaks Through Images: an Interview with Suji Park

    When a truly fascinating photograph hits you, it’s powerful enough to transport you to the story that is being told in that image. Such is what happens when one sees Suji Park's work for the first time. It’s as if you can actually hear and feel the details of each snapshot — the warmth of a late afternoon sun, the complex silence of nature or a dry and nostalgic solitude.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
