Once an important Illyrian centre and the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia, ruins of Salona are only 6 km away from Split. Yes, that close. Spend a few hours walking around the ancient ruins and experience history first hand before moving to one of the most beautiful fortress towns in Croatia, Trogir. Starting life as a Greek colony and often changing hands thru the course of history, narrow cobbled streets of Trogir offer many photo opportunities and cozy cafes. Did we mention it is a part of UNESCO world heritage, like Dubrovnik? Yup.
