Through The Narrow Streets Of Ancient

Split

During my trip across Croatia, I visited many great cities and landmarks, but Split is my favourite. Its narrow streets make you feel true history upon you. Let’s explore everything from a World Heritage ancient palace and cathedral up to lively palm-lined promenades on the shore of the Adriatic Sea.
