This walkway is home to the perfect wedding locations in Croatia

The Ivan Meštrović Walkway, which got its name after the famous Croatian sculptor and architect, is located on the west part of Split.

Spanning more than 3 kilometers, it is home to many attractions that lend themselves as perfect locations for both wedding ceremonies and wedding receptions.

So let’s go through some and show you why you should definitely know more about this part of Croatia if you are planning a wedding.

We’ll start with churches, and we got 2 that we would like to present to you.

The first one is Crikvine Kaštilac

 It is a sacral and artistic ensemble. Formed on a ruined farmed estate with the remains of the building of the Capogrosso family from the 16th century. Although the ground plan of the whole was preserved, Ivan Meštrović changed the appearance of some of the constructional remains with his modifications and new constructions.

In the context of time and space in which Meštrović worked, we also believe that Crikvine is a prominent example of restoring neglected heritage. The complex lends itself to beautiful wedding celebrations and events with its breathtaking view. And this is the reason why this is amongst the most prestige wedding locations in Croatia

Moving on more to the west, we have the

Church of the Lady of 7 sorrows.

As a protected cultural heritage, this small church was built between the 14. and 15. century. Many historians agreeing on the year 1362. Even though it is situated on an expensive piece of land. There have been forces trying to tear the church down. It has withheld its status as one of the most worthy pieces of architecture in that area.

Moving on to the northern part of the Walkway, we have the incredible building that is 

The Meštrović gallery

Meštrović’s concept of the villa was based on three purposes: work, living and exhibiting.

They are becoming more and more spatially defined as construction progresses.

The functions merged under the attribute ‘private’ were placed in the spacious wings.

While those of public character was placed in the central body of the house.

The main attraction of this building is the incredible walkway up to the main entrance which then has the most breathtaking view of the sea below it. This is quite a well-known building among event organizers due to its incredible composition. Also because of its history of hosting a myriad of events, weddings included.

Judging by the pictures, we can see why.
