Croatia: Split

We spent a wonderful week in Croatia with Mom ♡ Our trip started in Split. It’s the second largest city in Croatia, located on the Adriatic coast.

The direct flight from Helsinki to Split was only 3h and we already arrived at 10 o’clock in the morning, so we were able to explore the beautiful Old Town of Split on the same day! If the rest of the city is like every other European modern city, then in the Old Town you’ll travel back in time! Beautiful white stone buildings, palaces, squares, narrow streets, bell towers, cute cafes and shops are tightly fitted into a rather small area, which takes a good few days to properly discover! In total, we were in Split for 2 days, which in our opinion was perfectly adequate time to see almost everything.

The Riva Promenade is full of gorgeous palm trees.

Streets were really slippery and reflective.

Diocletian’s Palace is an ancient palace built for the Roman Emperor Diocletian at the turn of the fourth century AD, that today forms about half the old town of Split, Croatia. The Palace is one of the most famous and complete architectural and cultural features on the Croatian Adriatic coast and therefore included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979. As the world’s most complete remains of a Roman palace, it holds an outstanding place in the Mediterranean, European and world heritage.

One of the evenings we enjoyed wine and good live music in front of the Cathedral of Saint Domnius.
Laundry day.

We hiked up the Marjani hill to enjoy this wonderful view. Marjan is one of the popular tourist destinations with lots of trails, parks, beautiful views and more.
I ate way too many fruits in Croatia.
Narrow streets.

In the following days, we are going to visit two more UNESCO World Heritage Cities Dubrovnik and Kotor (Montenegro).
