A branch of blossoms heralds spring’s return in seaside Split – Croatia’s second largest city. In the background is the city’s famous Sveti Duje /Saint Dominus Cathedral.
Yesterday, we spent a delightful day exploring Split (more posts to come soon), which is home to Emperor Diocletian’s incredible palace complex, which was built in the 4th century as his retirement home.
The main part of Saint Duje’s is Diocletian’s mausoleum, which was built in the 3rd century; this bell tower was constructed in the 12th century.
Our time in Split was short and sweet yesterday, so we didn’t have time to ascend the tower. Some female tourists from Japan said the climb was “scary,” but the view was “incredible.”
Perhaps next time? :)
