Croatia’s second largest city, Split, was not what I expected at all. In complete contrast to Dubrovnik, Split is gritty and a bit rough around the edges, where Dubrovnik is upscale and elegant. The main sight to see in the city is Diocletian’s Palace, built as a retirement palace for the Roman emperor Diocletian. It’s not just a palace, but a series of labyrinth streets that wind a maze around 220 historical buildings.

Split is located right in the middle of the Dalmatian coast in Croatia, right along the Adriatic sea. This old city is filled with ancient Roman ruins, and makes a good jumping off point for some of Croatia’s most popular islands and pristine beaches.

From Dubrovnik I traveled by long distance bus to Split, Croatia, famous for its roman ruins, specifically Diocletian’s Palace. Split is also a hub for visits to a cluster of sun-kissed islands located just off the Croatian coast. After spending a few months in Northern Europe, I’m remembering just how much I love warm beach locations.

The entire journey north hugged the Croatian coastline, which was filled with stunning beaches. All along the way from my window seat, I enviously watched beach goers wade into the ocean, which was so clear you could see the pebbles in the shallow surf from up on the road! The whole route wound along rocky cliffs that dramatically plunged into sparkling emerald water. It was absolutely gorgeous.

This year has seen the most dramatic expansion of our travel map so far, and we’ve finally put together a color coded map of all the places we’ve been. Along with this comes the much anticipated (and frequently requested) full travel list with a complete break down of all the countries and cities we’ve been to thus far. I was kind of shocked myself how many places are on that map when I was putting it all together, and super excited for the upcoming places we’re planning to travel to!
