Visit Croatia

Split is the second largest city in Croatia, with just over 200,000 inhabitants, and is the largest city on the Adriatic coast. Coupled with its strong history - it emerged from a settlement around a palace built by Roman emperor Diocletian, and the city was also important within Yugoslavia - this lively city sure is worth a visit, however brief.

It is from a BBC programme called Francesco's Meditteranean Voyage (broadcast in 2008) in which Venetian Francesdo da Mosta spent two months sailing through this sea. Here, Francesco visits Split and goes to see a Split man who has a bit of an ancient temple within this flat, before going to play the famous game of picigin in the sea.
