Split – Next stop on the Croatian trip

After the suitcase and my passport had been recovered, with our tickets in hand we jumped on a train from Zagreb to Split.

The best way to travel between the two places in with the night train which leaves Zagreb at around 23:00 and reaches Split at 08:00 the next day. Unfortunately, one cannot book the tickets online, so a visit to the train station is advisable upon landing in Zagreb provided having all your belongings with you. As I didn’t fall in the latter category, we took a morning train and as the ride lasts about 8 hours, we spent most of the time assigned to seeing Split in there.

This wasn’t our train, just the view from it

For the last two hours, the air-condition stopped working and our coach was roasting to the point we thought we would start to melt. Our co-travelers were a group of inter-railers who dashed out of the train at a stop to get some beers. And they were kind enough to share a bottle with us. We may owe them our survival on that burning coach.

This was the point of ‘somebody get me out of here’

The old town of Split is built within the city walls known as the remains of what was Diocletian’s Palace. Although, we didn’t have a lot of time to appreciate the beauty of the place and enjoy it properly, we did, however, wander in the narrow streets and the marina. In the meantime, my camera gave up on me, so couldn’t take a lot of pictures either 😦

For some reason the first I thought of when I saw them was ‘Romeo and Juliet’

Next stop Dubrovnik…
