Split, the second-largest city in Croatia (17 miles east of Trogir) is also on the Adriatic coast. We spent just about four-five hours here, as we had to drive another 145 miles to reach Dubrovnik by evening. We concentrated our sightseeing to Diocletian’s Palace, and the Cathedral and Bell Tower of St. Domnius. These areas that constitute “The Historic Complex of Split with the Palace of Diocletian” are designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In fact, UNESCO descibes Diocletian’s Palace as one of the most famous and integral architectural and cultural buildings on the Croatian Adriatic coast. The Riva waterfront has got to be one of the most picturesque waterfront areas with palm trees and tastefully designed buildings lining the promenade.
