After seven hours on a bus that stopped at almost every bus stop en route, we arrived in Split. We were staying a night here and when the rains and winds came, we could only wait it out.
Split is the second largest city in Croatia and the largest in the Dalmation region. It is also one of the oldest cities in the area, dating back to the sixth century BC. Split’s main attraction is Diocletion’s Palace, built by the Roman emperor Diocletion as his retirement home. It’s now one of Croatia’s many World Heritage sites.
Armed with a map provided by our hostel, we did a bit of sightseeing in Diocletian’s Palace (which is more of a town than a palace) the next morning before moving on to Dubrovnik.
