The next part of my Croatia trip was from Plitvice to Split (marked in red in the map above). The journey took about 6 hours.
In Split, we met two couchsurfers. What is a couchsurfer? As far as I can understand, a couchsurfer is a person who shares one similar interest – TRAVELING. My friend will tell you more about couchsurfing. Read more HERE.
Nives the couchsurfer who showed us around the Old Town of Split. She works in an archeological museum in Split.
Nives also treated us a shrimp bruschetta, which has great Mediterranean taste in this coastal town
The Old Town of Split definitely has the Mediterranean feel to it, despite being in a Balkan country
Split is the second largest city in Croatia, but everything is accessible by foot. The pace of life here is much slower than the great white north. Well, I have not many words to write about Split. It’s so relaxing, you just don’t care what is this and what is that. I will let the photos do the talking.
We came in time for Noc Muzeja, which is night of the Museum. It’s a Croatian-wide program which all museums are open to visitors for free at this one night in a year. And this Nives the couchsurfer I told you before, works in the archeological museum of Split, which to our surprise looks like a majestic Grand Casa at night!
I mentioned two couchsufers. The other one is Pascal, a french guy working as an IT engineering in Split. I guess the french government really pays a lot to this guy because he has a really luxurious apartment! And we got to stay there for free 😉
