Almost two years after we first visited Split we are back for more. Only this year, instead of visiting the north of Croatia, we want to travel further south and explore the mountains of Bosnia and Montenegro. We spent a sunny Sunday morning walking the tiny and narrow streets, discovering new corners and streets we hadn’t even seen before and reminiscing in the memories of our last visit there.
As we have a new addition to our travel group, we did revisit the big sights of Split: The cathedral, the vestibule, the big central place, the charming market just outside the gates, we also went up to the top of the cathedral’s tower again to enjoy the bird-sight view of the town. The older houses are still as skewed and shaky as they were when we first saw them, but they’re also still standing.. Proving that they must be more stable than I thought them to be.
After a while we started to intentionally pick the small streets we had not traveled yet, without knowing where they led or if they led anywhere at all. They proved to have an incredible charm (if you are not worried about getting lost). I could’ve walked those streets, sat on the small plazzas and frequented all the little hidden away cafes for the rest of the holiday, but we have big things planned and we needed to move on. So in the early afternoon we returned to the bus station to check on a bus to go to Bosnia.
It was the perfect start to a holiday.
