Split Proclaimed Best UNESCO World Heritage Site To Live In, According To Financial Times











In a nutshell, architecture historian Simon Thurley, who is a an official advisor to the British government regarding historical heritage, analyzed 182 locations that have been put under UNESCO protection dating back 40 years.  In his list he placed the Croatian coastal city of Split as number 1 in a top 10 list for best historical heritage sites to live in. 

I was lucky enough to have been able to visit her a few times and have great memories and photos, saw a Hajduk Split soccer match, visited the Mestrovic Gallery, bought some official Hajduk jersey's, been to the beach, walked all those historic cobbled roads within the older historic part of Split that have a mixure of old and new, took lots of photos, ate cevape and drank pivo, so that's pretty cool.   Lots of things to do and see in Split, especially come summer.   It was great leaving all the ghetto mentality, fucktardism,  derpist-stooge-ism  back here. I was kind of sick of being invited to Cowtown lemon parties too, not my thing at all, and defo not a fan of the way people  celebrate holidays around here.  (I put Split on my own spur of the moment "Top 10" list a while back HERE)

(* Sidenote - For those sitting on the fence wondering about whether to get the new Croatia Euro2012 soccer jersey, mine arrived recently and after getting it numbered, I plan to do a short critique of this years edition complete with photos.  Overall I'd recommend getting this one.  More about that HERE)

Financial Times: Split je najbolji stari grad za život na svijetu




Summer night in the old quarters of Split.





Razvikana svjetska odredišta poput Venecije, Marrakecha ili Havane manje su impresionirala britanskog stručnjaka koji je zaključio da je mediteransko podneblje ipak najprivlačniji turistički kutak na Zemlji.

Split, odnosno Dioklecijanova palača, najpoželjniji je gradski povijesni lokalitet za život na svijetu, tvrdi Financial Times koji je naš jadranski biser smjestio na čelo ljestvice deset gradova čije su starogradske jezgre dio svjetske kulturne baštine pod zaštitom UNESCO-a.

Ocjenu gradova dao je povjesničar arhitekture i savjetnik britanske vlade za povijesno naslijeđe Simon Thurley. On je analizirao ukupno 182 lokaliteta koja su u posljednjih 40-ak godina stavljena pod UNESCO-ovu zaštitu.
