While it wasn't planned this way, our trip went from being very high input to very low input as we progressed. In Austria, there were lots of museums, historical attractions, and sights to see. But as we made our way to Croatia, there were less "must sees" and more people watching, meandering, and coffee sipping. In Split, we wandered, alone and individually, sipped drinks as the night crowd paraded down the Riva (promenade) in front of the harbor, went to the beach, and ate delicious, italian-style, pizza and gelato.
|At the beach! Almost.|
The old town of Split is build within the walls of the Emperor Diocletian's retirement palace.

The beach has aquamarine water, a beer garden, a nude section, and pebbles, not sand. It makes for very clean, clear water but awfully uncomfortable sunbathing.
