I am more than a little behind with life on Total Split, for which apologies. A combination of colleague illness, two months setting up Total Munich and the unexpected surge of interest in our Total Croatia News portal are all contributing factors, and I hope normal service will be resumed in the New Year.
There is plenty happening in Split these days, of course, and I was blown away by the atmosphere in the old town at the weekend, as I flew down from Zagreb with some international journalists to light the candle for the third Advent in Split gastro event on the main square, which you can read about here. For those who remember walking round the palace at night a few years ago in winter, the transformation is sensational – long may it continue, and Split is well on the way to becoming a 12-month destination.
There have been many other changes too, and as a blogger constantly in need of WiFi and a place to work when in Split, I was delighted to hear about a new expat initiative for the online homeless such as myself, a place in the centre which offers all the services one might want to work, without the hassle and expense of running an office.
It is called CoWorking Split (and something I should have written about weeks ago), and American Carly and Portuguese Miguel have created a rather lovely and very friendly environment. In their own words:
“CoWorking Split was born out of the necessity perceived by two (slow moving) digital nomads. A recent transplant from London to Split, this American-Portuguese couple decided to start a space like no other in one of the most beautiful cities on the Adriatic Sea with the aim to bring together locals and foreigners, permanent residents and digital nomads. Driven by their core values, the team of CoWorking Split strives to create a welcoming environment that fosters productivity and community.”
Services include the highest speed Internet in Croatia, WiFi printer and scanner, free coffee and tea, on-site tech support, plenty of those all essential plug sockets by each desk, free street parking, nearby bus stop or 10-minute walk from the centre. There are also various presentations and workshops arranged.
A great little addition to life in Split, and also a good way to meet people if you are new in town. Check out the website here – details of address and opening hours below.
