I have been in Split but an hour or so but already I am in full tourist mode, camera in hand snapping pictures of this and that but alas, the view here is one of those that does not lend itself to the art of photography. That’s when it hits me, I have a way to solve this dilema. The scene in front of me is that of the sea side promenade in Split, turquoise waters to one side, a wide pedestrian streak in the middle and fashionable shops and cafes on the other. What makes this sea front special is the main building housing all the cafes and shops: the Diocletian’s palace, a 2:nd century Roman palace that has become an integral part of the city. The great outer wall of the palace intermingles freely with increasingly more modern architecture down to pizzerias and ice cream parlours. It’s a pity there is no way of getting a fair view of this scene but it is worth a stroll, ice cream in hand.
