If there was a prize for the most creative man in Split, I think it is fair to say that Nadalina's Marinko Biskic would be in the running.
I first met Marinko shortly after I started Total Split, as I was fascinated by the Japanese obsession with his excellent chocolate range. It is the only shop in the palace, and probably the country, where the signs are in Japanese and English, and it is a must-visit for Japanese tourists on a visit to Split.
Perhaps Marinko's crowning achievement has been to create musical records made from chocolate, which actually play, and he recently added to his first such record by making a special edition for Croatian star Gibonni.
And now, with Carnival season underway, Marinko is back with his latest creation, the effigy for the children's carnival. Somehow I don't think that this one will be going up in flames until the children have got hold of the delicious chocolate interior...
