  Croatia    Trogir, Split, Krka, Salona.   

In late May, early June 2015 we went to Croatia. We had a mobile home at Camping Belvedere in Seget Vranjica. It is 4 km from Trogir and 30 km from Split.

Our mobile home. We were lucky because we had a view of the campsite and the sea. That is not at all mobile homes. Our caravan was brand new and very spacious.
It is a terraced site which is on the sea. You can either walk along the sea and in the mountains.

Trogir. 

Trogir. The historic center of Trogir has been since 1997 on the UNESCO World Heritage Site. This old town with lots of narrow streets is on a small island near the mainland.
Well-known buildings are the 13th century cathedral of Sv. Lovro (Laurence) and the 15th-century fortress Kamerlengo. Trogir is in the 3rd century BC. founded by Greek colonists.
In the harbor are expensive vessels.

Split.

Split, the statue of Gregory of Nin (Croatian: Grgur Ninski) The ancient town of Split is worth a visit. From Split you can take a boat to the islands.
The most famous building is the Palace of Diocletian (Croatian: Dioklecijanova palača). That was the beginning of the 4th century built by the Roman emperor Diocletian. From the 7th-century arose within the palace walls the old city center. Of the original Roman buildings is not much left now, but you can still find the original vaults of the palace. The best-known building within the walls is the cathedral of St. Domnius. In front of the entrance to the center is a huge statue of Gregory of Nin (Croatian: Grgur Ninski) made by Ivan Meštrović

At the other end of the cetre is the promenade.

Krka.

Krka. About 25 years ago we visited the Plitvice lakes. Actually we wanted to go there again, but it has become Krka.
We did it in two days. The first day we took the entrance taken at the village of Lozovac. You have to leave the car at the car park and you will be brought to the lakes by bus. That is along a narrow road. In the depth you see the park Krka. You will be driven to the top of the waterfall Skradinski.
We then walked a lot along the waterfall and have a boat trip to the monastery, church and museum on the island Visovac.

The boat trip to the monastery, church and museum on the island Visovac. It was 45 minutes trip to the island, half an hour on the island and back again for 45 minutes.
On the way to the island we had to sit within the boat. Because of the small windows we did not see you much and the engine made a lot of noise. On the way back we were upstairs. That was more fun.
In half an hour you'll have time enough to see the whole island.                                   
Krka, the island Visovac. The small island Visovac is owned by the Catholic Church. In the 18th century a Franciscan monastery was built, the Mother of Mercy monastery (Majke od Milosti). 
On the monastery grounds there is also the Church of Our Lady of Viscovac (Gospe Vicsovacke), a library of manuscripts and rare books and a museum with paintings and religious objects.

The other day:
A few days later we went to the entrance to the village of Skradin. We went on the boat to the bottom of the waterfall Skradinski. Then we walked all the way around the waterfall.

Route along the coast to the campsite.

Route along the coast to the campsite. We have eaten in Skradin. So there was no more time to go to Sibenik. A beautiful city, which is near Krka. Every time we drive along the coast, we enjoy the view. A few pictures.

Salona.

Salona, the ruins of a Roman city. Salona, the ruins of a Roman city.

Salona was the capital with more than 60,000 inhabitants in the Roman province of Dalmatia. Now there are many ruins left. You can find them in different places. Due to the unclear signs we first came up here. A ruin, but we were looking for the Archaeological Museum Tusculun.

That isn't clearly marked.
Salona, the ruins of a Roman city. The Archeological museum Tusculun.

Here is the entrance to a very large site with ruins. For a small price you can walk around. Important discoveries have been brought to the Archaeological Museum of Split, but there is still much to see. As remnants of the city walls, the amphitheater, cemeteries, the necropolis, basilicas.
As you can see in the pictures, on one side you are overlooking the outskirts of Split, on the other side you can see the mountains. 
It is amazing that there is so little advertising for this place because it's definitely worth a visit.
