Croatia – Split

Late Check ins, Washing & Cheap Asian Food

We left Zagreb in the morning and when we got to Split we had to catch another bus to our accommodation. We had left it so late that we booked through AirBnB and the room was about 20minutes outside of the main centre by bus. There were no signs and we had to knock on random peoples doors, so I would recommend that you book a hostel or hotel if you’re going to Split.

We grabbed whatever washing we had and caught a bus back into the centre. We found a laundrette called ‘Modrulj’ and the lady there was really helpful (spoke english). We had a quick snack at Noodle Box which was pretty average but we hadn’t eaten since the morning (about 4pm when we got it).

While our washing was being dried we wandered around the old town, Diocletian’s Palace, the Fruit Markets, along the port and Marjan Hill (only to the church / just past the restaurants.

For dinner we settled on Samurai Restaurants for dinner, it was nice but definitely not cheap (Split is super expensive during the high season. We also polished off a container of Fritule with chocolate sauce for dessert. We just bought it from one of the food stalls.

Buffet Fife, Meje & Kasjuni Beach

We didn’t leave our accommodation until 12ish the next morning, we were shattered. We caught a bus into the city and had lunch at Buffet Fife straight away. The portions were large and for the price – not bad.

We bought from nectarines from the local Konzum on our way to the beach. The first beach we arrived at was called ‘Meje’. We didn’t bring bathers with us because we expected sand, but it turned out to be a rock beach and the water was perfect. We had about a 5km round trip worth of walking so we didn’t want to be sandy, but we should have checked!

The second beach we walked to was Kasjuni. We thought Meje was nicer; less built up and less tourists.

On way back down the hill we saw some random magazines on the wall – we saw that they had Sudoku pages, so Ricky and I ripped them out. When we got back to the main square I found a bench along the beach front and started on my Sudoku pages while Ricky went to the very top of Marjan Hill (about a 30minute walk).

He said it was well worth it with amazing view from the very top. On his way back he randomly saw a car with a Bunnings Trade sun shade. We got Tiramisu Ice-cream and headed for the Temple of Jupiter.

We saw that it cost money to get into the temple so we didn’t bother, instead we just bought more peaches from the food market. On our bus ride home we stopped off at the Mall of Split to grab a quick dinner. We ended up going to Maccas in the food court, but we both agreed after that we should have tried the other burger place. We also bought snacks from the InterSpar. Ps. Milka suck at making biscuits, they should just stick to chocolate.

NOTES

  • Croatia nectarines / peaches are delicious
  • Buses don’t run between around 23:30 and 5:00
  • Citibank Cards; no charge at Splitska Bank ATM
