Seventeen hundred years ago, Split was marked on the map of the Roman Empire when the Emperor Diocletian chose to have his residential palace erected there. The palace erected inside natural bay of Adriatic, which is also protected by the line of islands in front of it. See closer look to the remains of the palace, it represents nucleus around which the town of Split has raised up.
Grgur Ninski/Gregory of Nin
Gregory of Nin was a 10th-century bishop who strongly opposed the Pope and official circles of the Church and introduced the Croatian language in the religious services after the Great Assembly in 926. This is a bit of who he was, but the reason for my bringing this tip is for the statue itself.
In front of the Golden Gate of the Diocletian's Palace, the statue was made by Ivan Meštroviæ in 1.929, however, it was originally located in the Peristyle of the Diocletian's Palace.
The real reason is that the statue was so imposing that it drew my attention very much.

By car ferry to Supetar on Brac Island
We took this ferry actually the other way round, ie from Supetar to Split. The journey took an hour or so and the cost for a pedestrian in September 2008 was 30 Kuna.
We found it amazing that this ferry was actually more expensive than the catamaran to Bol which was a longer journey in kilometers.
The cuisine of Dalmatia and...
The cuisine of Dalmatia and the islands follows the trend of modern nutritionist recommendations. The food is mainly cooked or grilled, with plenty of fish, olive oil, vegetable and self-grown herbs found near the sea is why the cuisine is considered very healthy.
You can start with dalmatian brandy (either herb brandy or grape brandy), dalmatian prosciutto (wind-dried ham), sheep cheese, salted sardines, marinated fish or sea-food salads. The next course can be soup – either white fish soup or lamb soup. Then you can choose between fish and sea-food dishes, or meat dishes (barbecued lamb, “pasticada” (stewed beef or/and veal served with potato noodles)).
Do not miss local wines …. Red wines: the best known are Dingac, Postup, Faros, Babic, Bolski plavac, as well as many other sorts grown in privately owned vineyards and bottled in small wine-cellars. White wines are equally rich and good (Posip, Marastina, Grk, Bogdanusa, Vugava).
