Split might just be one of my favorite towns in the world. Other than the fact that it can connect you to loads of amazing islands off the Croatian coast, the town itself also has a very unique vibe that and you can tell the locals have every reason to be home-proud.
For people who are fans of old Roman historical sights, Split will be a true treat. This is where Diocletian’s Palace is located, which is pretty well-preserved and was a real joy to visit. We then walked around the lovely old town, which is packed with good restaurants serving delicious Mediterranean tour and fresh ice cream. We also took a little tour of Marjan, a little hill from which you can get a great view of the town.
In the evening, we decided to go to the Poljud Stadium to see Dinamo Split play. As the game was heating up, the fans started chanting to the tune of Ary Barroso’s “Aquarela do Brasil”, which gave the warm summer evening a perfect spontaneous soundtrack.
