I am sure that for each of you there is the city that has completely inspired you and you are always happy to come back again. For me, it’s Paris. Two years after Erasmus internship, I have a feeling like nothing has changed, like I have never left. Writing about Paris is a little bit difficult, but I will try to keep it as if it were in front of your eyes. I believe there is no person in the world who has remained indifferent to the beautiful narrow parisian streets and wide avenues, nor to the romantic facades with parisian windows. They surprise you behind the every corner, in every street, so the view is always upward. There is a real proof for this : chairs of parisian bars are always facing the street, beacuse of course, who would turn back to this amazing view?


Sigurna sam da za svakog od vas postoji neki grad koji vas je potpuno osvojio i kojem se uvijek rado vracate. Za mene je to Pariz. Dvije godine nakon Erasmusa, kao da se bas nista nije promijenilo i kao da nikad nisam ni otisla. Pisati o Parizu ukratko je tesko, ali pokusati cu ga docarati kao da vam je pred ocima. Mislim da ne postoji osoba koja je ostala ravnodušna prema prekrasnim uskim pariskim ulicama i sirokim avenijama, niti zazmirila na romanticne fasade i pariske prozore. Iznenaduju u bas svakoj ulici pa je pogled uvijek usmjeren prema gore. Dokaz tome je taj da su stolice cafe barova uvijek okrenute prema ulici, jer naravno, tko bi okrenuo leda tom pogledu?

This time I had the opportunity to travel with my friend and walk around the Paris without the obligation to visit regular turistic places – just enjoy and live in the moment. We’ve been walking all day long, and between walks, had to rest a little bit – that was our favourite part because it was time for good French brunch, cheese, wine, popular crêpes or macaroons, my favorite. Although the ”Laduree” is surely the most popular, ”Pierre Herme” has more interesting and more tasty flavors (in my opinion). And yes, if you are going to Paris, prepare yourself for the upcoming weight, because besides macaroons, there is all specter of colorful and delicious cakes that leap out of the Angelina’s window or a super-photogenic ice cream in the form of a rose from ”Amorino”. I couldn’t resist them! Wish you more luck with that (:!


Ovog puta imala sam priliku opusteno putovati s prijateljicom, setati gradom bez obveze posjecivanja turistickih IT-mjesta. Samo uzivati i zivjeti u trenutku. Setale smo po cijele dane, a izmedu setnji, treba se i odmoriti (: – ne pada tesko pocastiti se dobrim francuskim brunchom, sirom, popularnim palacinkama (crepe) ili makaronima, mojim favoritom. Iako je Laduree zasigurno najpopularniji, Pierre Herme po mojem misljenju ima zanimljivije okuse. I da, ako ste sladokusci i krecete u Pariz, pripremite se na nadolazeci visak kila, jer pored makarona, tu su i svi sareni i ukusni kolaci koji iskacu iz izloga Angeline i ostalih slasticarnica ili super fotogenicni sladoled u obliku ruze iz Amorina. Ja im nisam odolila! Vama zelim vise srece s tim (:!

In this city you can’t feel lost – every arrondisement has its own story that attracts you. Even though the Eiffel Tower is known as cliche, it is still my No1 location. Especially at night! When you climb up to the top of tower, the view is amazing! But still – something is missings – Eiffel Tower! So, for the most beautiful city view, visit Montparnasse tower. I had a lot of time and will to seek mystical streets near the tower. And I found it, just look at these pictures! We had luck with one more thing – it was apring! Paris is definitely the most beautiful in the spring. It is full of nature, blossoms, flowers, not to mention all those street flower-shops.. Peonies are my favorite. Though, in some flower-shops, you will find labels that say that photographing flowers is being charged, and this is probably because of all the crazy instagramholics who want to put some color in their feed – and who would have blamed them! All in all, c’est Paris! This is why I’m falling in love with it everytime I visit it. With reason one of the most beautiful cities in the world, city of fashion, city of light s and for me,  the city of most beautiful memories!


U ovom gradu ne mozete se osjecati izgubljeno – svaki arrondisement ima neku svoju pricu koja privlaci. Iako je cliche, Eiffelov toranj je i dalje moja No1 lokacija. Pogotovo po noci. Kad se popnete na toranj, pogled ubija! Ali ipak – nesto fali, sam Eiffelov toranj (:!  Stoga, za najljepse panarome koje ukljucuju i njega, posjetite Montparnasse. Imala sam dosta vremena i volje traziti misticne ulice u blizini tornja, iz kojih se pruza jos jedan prekrasan pogled na njega. I nasla sam ga, pogledajte samo slike. Jos jedna sreca koja nas je pratila je – godisnje doba, proljece. Pariz je definitivno najljepsi u proljece. Pun je zelenila, prirode, cvijeca, a da ne spominjem sve te ulicne cvjecarnice s izlozinim cvijecem. Bozuri su mi najdrazi. Iako, kod nekih cvjecarnica cete pronaci natpise koji kazu da se fotografiranje cvijeca naplacuje, a razlog tome su vjerojatno sve lude instagramoholicarke koje zele unijeti malo boja u svoj feed(i ja medu njima) – tko bi im i zamjerio!  Sve u svemu c’est Paris! Svaki put se zaljubim u njega. S razlogom jedan od najljepsih gradova na svijetu, grad mode, grad svjetla i za mene grad najljepsih uspomena!
