Columbo's Pirate Ship "Santa Maria" - Split Panoramic Tour

2. Columbo's Pirate Ship "Santa Maria" - Split Panoramic Tour

The Riva started to look the way it does today two centuries ago, when the French, in time of Napoleon ruled these parts through Marshal Marmont. Today this promenade is the cities living room, the most popular and most important public place in Split. In the meantime it has been widened and reconstructed several times, but it was always blessed with the most spectacular set, the south facade of the Diocletian Palace, with the entrance into the Substructures, and later on with the buildings that were built west of the Palace, also the Franciscan monastery with the church of St. Francis, and the Bajamonti Dešković Palace and last but not least the Port Authorities building on the east end Bacvice is sandy beach, with sand being very soft. It is pleasing to walk on it and enter the sea. Water is shallow even 100 meters away from the coast. That means it's ideal for having fun and playing water sports. Bacvice is place of birth of game called picigin, which is part of UNESCO non-material heritage. The game is played by throwing a small ball to the other players, in shallow water. The ball must not enter the sea, and aim of the game is to keep it up in the air as much as possible. Every year in Split is held Picigin World Cup. Croatian team usually wins. The southwest cape of the Split harbour is called Sustipan after a Middle Aged monastery of St. Stephen under the pine trees, which served as the resting ground to the Croatian Kings. At the beginning of the 19th century Sustipan became Split's first cemetery, outside of the city at the time, only to be demolished, regardless of the emotional connection citizen's of Split had for this location and an extraordinary artistic value of the local tombs, by the communist authorities after the opening of the new cities cemetery. The only thing preserved to this day of the entire cemetery is a Classicistic gloriette. Sustipan is turned into a beautiful park, a genuine little green oasis in the immediate vicinity of Marjan and the city, from its reefs that meet the sea a breathtaking view spreads directly towards the deep sea and the islands in front of Split. Marjan, the hill that overlooks the city has always been the most impressive part of Split imagery. Such a harmony betwwen natural and urban is rarely found; on one side the densely populated city in all of its glory and on the other a peninsula of almost pristine nature. Backing onto the pine-covered foothills of the Marjan peninsula, this scenic pebble and sand stretch has an appealing laid-back atmosphere. Kašuni Beach is an attractive beach destination for swimming and sunbathing. More peaceful and rural in feel than Split’s main Bačvice Beach, it is a good place to enjoy a relaxing day out. Bask in the sun and lounge away an afternoon on its tranquil shores. The strip is comprised of fine pebble and sand and is bordered by wooded sloping hills. Also we stop in front of the beach for swimming.

What people are saying about Karlovac County

Elena & Dino as well as the driver that took us back to zagreb were great. We took a bus to the lakes ( 3h drive with a 20min stop for breakfast), spent 4h in the lakes, it was amazing, elena is a great guide with a sarcastic sense of humor. She took amazing pictures of me as i was a solo traveler and explained not only the history and names of the lakes but also detailed the history of all the place we drove by from split to Croatia in general. The trip back to zagreb was on a nice car as they were only two of us and the driver was kind enough to drive us to our hotels. Really great experience !

It was the most enjoyable and breathtaking natural scenery I’ve ever seen in Croatia. Our guide Sandra was excellent. Her bubbly personality and abundance of knowledge and jokes made our time at the park goes by so quickly. I highly recommend her to be your tour guide if you ever plan to visit the Plitvice National Park. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
