Even though my friend Ivana and I both live in a small place just before Sisak (coming from the eastern side), a ten minute drive to it is never an obstacle. Sisak is not a huge town. As a matter of fact, Croatia doesn’t have London-Paris-New York type of cities or any other of that population magnitude. Small country, small cities. I guess. So, Sisak has been here for more than 2000 years. Pretty cool, huh? Sometimes, we don’t see the beauty and importance in the place we live in.  That happens to me a lot and I wanna change that.  I don’t wanna be the person who only sees beauty in other people’s cities.
So, yesterday, my friend and I took the long walk around the town, to the places we don’t go very often. I totally saw beauty in my city, yesterday. From the golden hour up to the complete dark night. That is when my town is most beautiful to me. River Kupa that flows through it looks beautiful in the warm, sunset light. We have two more rivers; Sava and Odra. I know this sounds like some tourist guide stuff but a few fact about my town won’t hurt. Hehe. We went by the railway station and took a few photos there, had a burger and an ice cream in McDonald’s, … All in all, it was a good, simple and joyful night. God bless.

    stunning pictures, ines! you always capture the true beauty of pretty much everything. (:
    and i agree, i recently came to a realization that my hometown and my ‘new’ city are beautiful… maybe not as picturesque or as historical as rome or paris or other ‘famous’ european cities, but beautiful nonetheless.

      Yeah, I always think Zagreb, as the capital, is prettier than Sisak, London than Zagreb, SF than London…round and round.. :)

    Beautiful photos, you live in a wonderful city. And sunset light is absolutely amazing. I like to take photos in different cities early in the morning or on the sunset, the light is brilliant this time of the day.
    And you are so right about not seeing beauty in our native towns. I live in a small town near Moscow and go there every day for work. I’ve never really liked Moscow very much though it’s very popular with tourists, but several months ago I understood that I just never walk around it like tourists do, never visited the most beautiful places and now I try to change it :)

    I love the way you put these together. There is something about seeing them placed like this that makes them look even more amazing than they would look alone! I especially love the first two!
