Split is the second largest city in Croatia, situated in Central Dalmatia on the Eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea and is one of the oldest cities in the area (The Diocletian Palace – built for the retired Roman emperor Diocletian – is considered to be over 1700 years old). The city is a popular tourist destination and the ruins of Diocletian’s Palace were being used for filming the series Game of Thrones.
In around 2 hours you can take a walk on Riva promenade, visit Diocletian’s Palace and go up in the Bell-tower (which offers a marvelous panoramic view of Split, Marjan Hill and nearby islands. The tower has steep stairs and large open window spaces through which the wind comes in – perfect for cooling down during hot days).
Despite the melting heat, the weather was just right for photography, with a nice blue sky and plenty of light. Split is known to have an ideal climate, with many hours of sunshine each year.
