When you take over 10,000 pictures on one trip, it can take a while to filter through all of the photos. Here, I’ll finally get to tell you about our travel from Kalpići to Split. After staying at the farmhouse in Kalpići, where we saw the Krka waterfalls, our next stop was Split, a town on the coast, which was around a 4-4 1/2 hour drive away.
Since it was rainy day, we decided to drive slow and stop in a few towns along the way. Our first stop was Primosten, a small town on the coast of Croatia, which is situated mostly out in the water, with only one way in and out. Due to the rain, we felt like we had the whole town to ourselves. We walked through the shops, climbed the hill up to the church in the middle of the town (the views were great!), and enjoyed one too many cappuccinos and espressos in a small cafe by the waterfront. If you’re ever in Croatia, I highly recommend visiting. After spending a few hours here, we were off to our next stop – Trogir.
Trogir is a historic town on the coast of Croatia, which although does have similar architecture and design to Primosten, is still a very unique town all its own. We seemed to have come on a day when they have a big outdoor market outside of the town, so we enjoyed walking through there, and checking out all of the local Croatian foods. We even picked up some truffle sauce, soaps, little trinkets to bring back home and some snacks for when we arrived in Split, which ended up being so tasty. It’s something that I highly recommend checking out if you’re ever there – it’s always fun to see where the locals shop for their vegetables, spices, meat, etc.
After making our way through the market, we headed into the heart of the town where we came upon a church. Since my mom loves to visit churches, we decided venture inside. Good thing I had taken Nick’s camera with me because I found that you were allowed to climb up to the bell tower. This ended up being a lot scarier than I thought it would be. Everything started out fine, but the stairs seemed to get thinner and less sturdy the higher you went. Somehow, I made it up and I’m so glad I did because the view was absolutely beautiful. You can see the view from the top in the pictures below.
After checking out the town, we decided to travel on to Split, where I’ll give you the low down our adventures to the beach, our Game of Throne’s tour and the best places we ate while we were there.
