Napier -World Center Art Deco culture (ili izgovor za još jedan divan vikend)

Napier je divan grad koji se nalazi   u "Dolini Sokola" na Severnom Ostrvu Novog Zelanda
Pišemo 1931 godinu.Napier je uljuljan u dubok san i stanovnici ni ne predpostavljaju kakva velika tragedija se sprema.Zemljotres!! Odneo je mnoge živote a i sam grad je umro..srušen je do temelja.



Na ovim ruševinama preživeli su uz pomoć svojih sugradjana sa svih strana Novog Zelanda odlučili :Izgradiće novi grad u Art Deco stilu .Čemu su tokom dugo godina ostali dosledni i Napier je tako postao  Svestski Centar Art Deco Arhitekture.Mogu sa pravom biti ponosni na svoj grad koji i mi ljubitelji lepog volimo i posećujemo.Ja imam jos i sreće da moji dobri prijatelji ovde žive pa iskoristim često vikend da ovde dodjem.
A nije ni tajna ,moj najomiljeniji restoran  Old Church (Stara Crkva), se nalazi baš ovde.Putovanje od Auklanda traje avionom svega oko sat vremena ,pa je i za Cali to sasvim izvodljivo.A i nije njeno prvo.









Grad je divan, a okolina je fantastična.Ovde se nalaze neke od najboljih vinarija na Novom Zelandu, a u blizini je i najveća kolonija galebova u svetu.. Cape Kidanpers (Rt Kidnapera), koje već izdaleka možete i čuti i namirisati.No voga puta smo se samo šetali po Napier ,čuvenom Marine Parade koja ide iz samog centra grada pored mora, kilometrima.



Volim i njihov Farmers Market ,pijacu gde znate da je sve sveže i proizvedeno u okolini.Vlada neka baš domaćinska atmosfera.


 I naravno predivne zgrade u Art Deco stilu.

























Napier is beautiful city that is located  on the North Island in Hawkes Bay.
We are writing year 1931.Napier is in deep sleep and it's inhabitants do not dream which tragedy is hanging above their heads.Earthquake!!It took many lives and the city died as well.It was flattened to the ground.




















On this remains  , survivors with a big support from fellow new Zealanders set out to rebuild the city in Art Deco style.They remained by that plan up to this day.The city is so beautifull that many New Zealanders and lovers of beautiful Art Deco Arhitecture enjoy vsiiting it.It is about one hour flying from my place so it's not too long for Cali. And it's not her first plane trip.

I have spend many weekends here and am also fortunate that my good friends live here.It is also not as secret to thsoe that know me taht my favorite reastaurant 'Old Church" is here.Ok, the Chef is handsome too:)

The city is beautiful, the surrounding is fantastic.Some of best wines are produced here and there is also famous and world biggest colony of Gannets  on "Cape Kidanppers".You can hear and smell them from far away.
This time we didn't visit any of those.There will be plenty of time when weather improves.Instead, we walked the beautiful stretch of Marine Parade ,street that starts in center of the city and goes along the ocean for kilometers.





I love their homey Farmers Market ,where you know produce is fresh and produced nearby.
And of course the beautiful Art Deco Buildings.Will be back!
