Stop #4: Split

Split is another ancient city (flickr slideshow here), and Diocletian's Palace (photos) is the heart of it. I'm going to see Diocletian's Palace. It's a UNESCO World Heritage site: "The ruins of Diocletian's Palace, built between the late 3rd and the early 4th centuries A.D., are found throughout the city. The cathedral was built in the Middle Ages, reusing materials from the ancient mausoleum. Twelfth- and 13th-century Romanesque churches, medieval fortifications, 15th-century Gothic palaces and other palaces in Renaissance and Baroque style make up the rest of the protected area." But it's not just a bunch of dusty ruins; it's really the heart of the city. Check this out:

That's a cafe in the ruins. That's how they roll.
Still, this too:
We'll be staying at Villa Varos:

Three nights in Split, and then we drive back to Zagreb. We could take the same route we took at the beginning, or we could also drive through Bosnia-Hercegovina. I think I might want to do that.
