Split

Split, our second destination of our Croatia trip. It’s the second-largest city in the country and the largest city of the Dalmatian region. A typical Mediterranean town that dates back to the Roman Empire, worth mentioning the not-to-be-missed Diocletian Palace in Old Town, which is one of seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Croatia.

We stayed in Split for three nights, including a day trip to Hvar, which I felt was a decent amount of time to explore the main attractions and get a feel of the city. Strolling along the Riva waterfront promenade, hiking up Marjan Hill, sunbathing in Kašjuni Beach (a bus ride away), touring around Old Town and exploring local food markets were some of the things we made sure to do during our stay.

After going through my photos from Split, I realised that I barely took any so most of these I stole from Rickie’s camera. However, I recorded some random snippets here and there, which I quickly put together in a short video. Once I have more time, I’ll make a longer one from the whole trip.

Finally, I recommend for any future visitors to experience the Peristyle of Diocletian's Palace during nighttime. The open-air pavilion gets filled with people enjoying live music entertainment and it’s especially a really romantic scene for couples. At least that topped off our evening after a delicious culinary experience at Konoba Matoni.
