    Walking around

    Kastel Sucurac

    Favorite thing: With a short exception of the area around the former Jugovinil chemical factory, it is possible to walk by the sea from Kastel Sucurac to Kastel Stafilic. The path goes by small fishing ports, old centers of Kastelas and near the beaches of Lower Kastelas.

    I did most of my pictures here during a walk I did with my sister in spring 2007. We started in Kastel Sucurac around 3 pm and reached Kastel Stafilic some three hours later (which also included a coffee break and an ice cream break).

    Industrial heritage

    Former chemical plant
    2 more images

    Favorite thing: The Kastela Bay was one of the largest industrial sites of former Yugoslavia. Huge shipbuilding yards and a port were located on Split peninsula, while the coast of Kastela was occupied by two huge cement factories, steel works and a huge chemical plant.

    Cement factories still work, but luckily with new air filters so days of dusty skies are mostly past nowadays. The chemical factory stands abandoned like a huge installation or a monument to the industrial past.

    It would be nice to see some projects that would use parts of these structures for some new purposes.

    Kastela beach

    Favorite thing: While Upper Kastela (Sucurac, Kambelovac, Gomilica) have lost its once picturesque coast due to heavy industrialization in the second part of the 20th century, the Lower Kastela (Luksic, Novi, Stari and Stafilic) still have the old charm of small fishing villages dotted around the Kastela Bay.

    Here it is possible to find nice pebble beaches in the shade of pine trees, offering clean sea and nice views of Split peninsula and Ciovo island across the Kastela Bay.
