Seville

ENG
Seville in August? History repeats itself, I thought. When I visited it six years ago there were more than 40 C and my friend and I ended up in nearest Starbucks in order to survive. Such a pity in a city like that. This time I had to risk since Seville, the capital of Andalucia, was the nearest stop to the upcoming events. And you know what? The weather was perfect so I was lucky this time and I even managed to feel chilly in my little white dress which was supposed to protect me from the heat. It was a quick stop of only day and half but enough to visit its essence, the old city center and Alcazar, the first royal residence in Europe which preserved its look since the 16th century. As someone who's really into Hispanistics, in professional and every other way, Seville is just like a little cultural paradise for me. Spanish golden age blends perfectly with old Moorish details. Sometimes you can find yourself in "deep" Spain or in a place from One Thousand and One Nights. I really recommend visiting this city with 3000 hours of sun per year. But trust me, you want to go in spring or autumn. Just in case ;)

Sevilla en agosto? La historia se repite, pensé. Cuando visité Sevilla hace seis años, mi amiga y yo nos tuvimos que meter en el Starbucks más cercano para sobrevivir los 40 y pico grados que hacían en ese momento. Es una pena perder el tiempo en una ciudad nuvea. Esta vez tuve que arriesgarlo porque esta ciudad, la capital de Andalucía, fue el sitio más cercano para los siguientes eventos. Y al final tuve suerte! El tiempo estaba perfecto e incluso pasé un poco de frío en mi pequeño vestido blanco que se supone que me iba a proteger del calor. Mi visita duró solo un día y medio, que es poco, pero también suficiente para visitar lo principal, el casco antiguo y Alcázar, la residencia real más antigua de Europa que se conservó tal como es desde el siglo 16. La hispanística es algo que ha marcado mi vida tanto en lo profesional como en lo personal, por lo cual Sevilla es para mí un paraíso cultural. El siglo de oro y la época Mozárabe forman un conjunto ideal. A ratos me parecía que estaba rodeada de pura esencia española y a ratos en un cuento de las Mil y Una Noches. Os recomiendo visitar esta ciudad con 3000 horas de sol al año, pero mejor en primavera/otoño, por si acaso ;)

Sevilja u avgustu? Istorija se ponavlja, pomislila sam. Sevilju sam prvi put posetila pre šest godina. Tada smo moja drugarica i ja morale da se sklonimo u najbliži Starbucks kako bismo preživele užarenih 40 i nekoliko stepeni. Šteta kada ste u novom gradu. Ovog puta sam morala da rizikujem jer je Sevilja, prestonica španske pokrajine Andaluzije, bila najbliža događajima koji su usledili. I znate šta? Na kraju sam imala sreće! Vreme je bilo savršeno a kada je pao mrak čak sam uspela i da se smrznem u mojoj maloj beloj haljini koja je trebalo da me zaštiti od potencijalne vrućine. Moja poseta ovom gradu je trajala čitavih dan i po, ali dovoljno da ponovo posetim njegov stari centar i Alkazar, prvu kraljevsku rezidenciju u Evropi koja čuva današnji izgled još od 16. veka. Kao neko kome je hispanistika obeležila život i u profesionalnom i u svakom drugom smislu, Sevilja je za mene pravi raj što se kulture tiče. Španski zlatni vek i mavarski uticaji na svakom ćošku se savršeno stapaju jedan u drugi. Na trenutke mi se činilo da sam u onoj pravoj "dubokoj" Španiji a ponekad kao da sam se našla na mestu neke od priča iz Hiljadu i jedne noći. Ako budete u prilici, posetite ovaj grad sa 3000 sunčanih sati godišnje, ali bolje u proleće ili jesen jer nikada se ne zna ;)

  15. Tako lijepo kad imaš priliku upoznati neku zemlju od glave do repa ;) Tako mi upoznajemo Španjolsku preko tebe! ;) Nisam znala neke od navedenih činjenica o Sevilji i baš mi je zato stvarno divno i čitati i gledati tvoje postove!
    Ti si bila divna kao i uvijek! Haljinica je šečer pogotovo u kombinaciji s ovim preslatkim sandalicama koje me oduševljavaju sve više iz posta u post! Fora mi je što malo-pomalo ubacuješ i Ulisesa u postove... baš vas uvijek volim vidjeti skupa! Pusam

    1. Jeste, počela sam odavno i još ima toliko toga gde nisam bila, ali polako ;) Drago mi je da ti se sviđa sve, hvala ti! A Ulises, ma on je veći pozer od mene haha, nije to problem, a što se zajedničkih tiče, uglavnom nemamo takve slike, a da nisu selfie ;)
