Split Croatian coastal city
Split Croatian coastal city impressed me from my first glimpse, even more impressed when I got to my apartment. Two bedrooms and a good kitchen in a great location for $70 aud per night. Also the landlord Neven, could not be more helpful.
Spectacular at dusk
No cars in the middle of town.
This nice street leads to my apartment.
My favourite time of the day and a great time to take photos.
The Cathedral of Saint Domnius, consecrated at the turn of the 7th century AD, is regarded as the oldest Catholic cathedral in the world that remains in use in its original structure. The structure itself, built in AD 305 as the Mausoleum of Diocletian, is the second oldest structure used by any Christian Cathedral.

I ordered Ribs and potato salad and I must say they were the best ribs I have had in many years.
The northern gate of the Palace (called the Golden Gate) had been conceived as the main entrance to the Palace and so it had been elaborately decorated with statues of the Emperor Diocletian and his co-regent Maximilian.
The Golden Gate
Originally opened in 1893, the theatre is owned and operated by the City of Split and is one of the oldest surviving theatres in Dalmatia.
Prokurative, or officially the Republic Square, the famed Mediterranean Square in the center of the city.
Coffee by the harbour

This model of the city gives you a very good idea of the layout.

My apartment, a great location
Called the Apartments Marmont it is the yellow building on the left. Two bedrooms and a good kitchen in a great location for $70 aud per night. The friendly landlord Neven could not be more helpful. Book it through Agoda as I do for a terrific rate.
My apartment is on the first floor.
View from my apartment
From my balcony you look down on some of the cafes and restaurants. The location is perfect just a short walk to all the shops and attractions.
Morning coffee and a cigarette
My biggest and only complaint in Croatia is they smoke everywhere, worst of all inside restaurants.
“No Stress” cafe
I love the name of this cafe, it really sums up my main goal in life.
Easily the best breakfast I have had in Croatia, very good food, service and coffee.
Overlooking the harbour
I hope you enjoyed my post on Split Croatian coastal city, I’m taking a 4’5 hour bus trip to Dubrovnik tomorrow. Split is a very nice city, put it on your bucket list.
