Med. and Adriatic Cruise October 2012, Split, Croatia.

Our next port of call was Split in Croatia.

Facing the harbour, Diocletian’s Palace is one of the most imposing Roman ruins in existence and is actually the main part of the beautiful old walled city of Split.

A wedding had just taken place when we were there.

A beautiful setting for a special day.

The church tower.

This kitty looked quite dirty and thin but was friendly. He had found himself a nice place to sit in the sun.

This is a statue of Gregory of Nin located outside the Palace's Golden Gate and is a tribute to the Bishop who battled the Pope over the right to celebrate mass in the Croatian language during the 10th century.

After we came out of the old city we sat on the sea front wall where we could see our ship docked behind the masts of the yachts in the marina.

Looking back along the sea front.

Republic Square.

Leaving Split.

Next stop Dubrovnik.
