Welcome to Split y'all!....and our first stop on the Dalmatian Coast. The bus trip from Plitvice to Split was the most beautiful highway on the planet! Peppered with little coastal towns and miles and miles of ocean and islands. Thank the Lord we got a seat in the front so I was very content looking out the window.

I have to share our awesome room! After Plitvice we felt a little defeated with the no AC and dated decor. I found our Split accommodations through my traveling bible and had no problem contacting Kaleta Apartments through their really well done website. Located inside the palace walls you could not get any closer to all of the action. We actually had two little cafes right below our room. A little loud at night but the windows kept out the majority of the noise. And, I found it very easy to fall asleep after traveling all day.

So before Split we hadn't been to a town that had any real nightlife....like a club. And NO we did not go to a European club. But we did walk the Riva along with everyone else in the city. It had a very Miami, in a good way, feel. I could have sat out there all night. So many beautiful people of all ages just strolling along. What was so great about Split is that it wasn't just tourist. Locals were intermixed everywhere.

Split was my favorite city! And we definitley fell in love with the Dalmation Coast. If you are headed to Croatia this needs to be on your to do list. Ok, two more cities to go...phew!
