The next step in our Croatian stopover, and what a lovely city. Much like Zagreb with its vibrance, but completely different on the  surface.

The first time the sea had been part of our trip since Den Haag, and that seemed a million miles away. Secluded and coastal with beautiful views of hills and mountains that surrounded the parts of land the sea couldn’t get to.
The hilly terrain leaves new surprises around every corner, making the exploring even more fun.
101 Dalmatian Hostel was the hostel of choice. A design hostel nestled deep into the cities community.

Although the location wasn’t ideal for walking to the centre, the hostel, which some may call a hotel, made up for in style, cleanliness and all round experience.

The bus service is extremely good too, and you can get the 9, 10 or 11 in the centre with ease.
The dorms were very spacious, air conditioned and the beds comfy. En suite bathrooms in each room, with separate toilets making the morning a lot easier.

Designs in the hostel link back to the dalmatian theme, and the many Croatian islands. With each bed having its own island, as well as a map of the world in the corridor, where you can pin your home and make your mark.

The hostel has a common area, with one the best additions of the trip – a PS4! Open for all visitors to use, with games such as FIFA and NBA.

The lack of kitchen in the hostel is made up for by the food stall at the nearby Kaufland supermarket. Chicken and chips works out at three euros, and it is very good! Open all day, but there is sometimes a queue, but believe me it’s worth the wait.

101 Dalmatian also provides a laundry service, free parking and good wifi throughout the hostel.
Croatia is known for its national parks and as you can read in our Zagreb article, they are spectacular. Just under an hour out of Split is Krka National Park and some may argue it’s even better than Plitvice Lakes. Why you ask? Because you have all the views of Plitvice, the stunning waterfalls and landscape, but you are allowed in the beautifully clear water.

What more could you want!
Split itself has the picturesque harbour and an amass of historic buildings, including the fortresslike Diocletian’s Palace. There is also galleries, museums and the Croatian National Theatre.
Nestled on the the Dalmation coast, Split’s beaches are  a major draw for visitors. There are around 10 to choose from, but Bacvice beach is a must if the weather is right. Just 10 minutes from the harbour, its sandy and has shallow waters. Although it can rather busy in peak times.

So that’s Croatia done, and i’d recommend it to anyone – but make sure the weather is right.
See you in Italy…
