Split
@roxanageorgescu
The city is stunning, exuding a carefree, beachy vibe. As you explore, you'll walk past historic buildings, marvel at a diverse range of architectural styles, and encounter historical landmarks and symbols, all while surrounded by tropical palm trees and scenic views of the beautiful sea. I highly recommend exploring this city on foot to fully immerse yourself in its charm. Here is a list of all the things you should see and do in this Croatia coastal city: - Diocletian’s Palace - The Old City - Cathedral of St Domnius - Gregory of Nin Statue - Riva Promenade - Republic Square - Marjan Hill (with killer views) - Kliss Fortress - Beautiful beaches - Visit other islands like Hvar

Dubrovnik
@roxanageorgescu
From the vivacious atmosphere to the impeccable views, this city will probably remain one of my favorites I’ve ever been in.
