Sunrise in Split

Good morning from an ancient city.
If you like sunrises, this is the place for you.
Split gets over 2,800 hours of sunshine every year.

The following images are views from the patio of the Airbnb where I stayed in Split.

Terra cotta shingles are an iconic part of Croatian architecture.
These brilliant red tiles were once symbolic of wealth.

I’m not saying I believe in other realms, but I have watched Game of Thrones one too many times.

Every time I caught a far off view of a gull, I was halfway convinced it was a dragon.

And now it’s time to move along on my Croatian road trip, but not without seeing the city from above. This was shot from the pass between the Mosor and Kozjak mountains.

From Klis Fortress, you can see that Split is on a peninsula.

Below, you’ll see a photo of Klis Fortress. It was a medieval stronghold, strategically positioned between two ranges. It’s one of the best preserved examples of Dalmatian defense still standing.

Maybe you recognize it as the The City of Meereen in Game of Thrones.

And we’re back on the road. Any guesses which city is next?

I’ll give you a hint, I’m headed to the land of a thousand waterfalls.
