Split and Trogir

sunny 24 °C

The harbour at Split was packed with ships and boats of all sizes when we arrived. It's a busy place with ferries, cargo boats and schooners plying the waters of the Adriatic...

It's October and most of the quayside restaurants and bars have rolled up their shutters for the winter. But the palm trees still make a pretty sight in the warm sunshine...

Just around the bay is the ancient town of Trogir where the pleasure craft lay in the calm waters and the views of Split backed by mountains was superb in the late afternoon sun...

Trogir has lots of interesting scenery...

But Split has many ancient buildings, ruins and churches that are well worth a visit...

These places will be thronged with tourists in July and August but now we are into October Split and Trogir are peaceful and picturesque.
However, some of the streets are so narrow that you might have to walk sideways.
