This morning we visited the second largest city of Croatia, Split.
That's the local tour guide for few hours, she's a very friendly lady
Here we were at Diocletian's Palace.
The Diocletian's palace is an ancient palace built by the Roman Emperor
Then we were so lucky to see the king and queen of Denmark! I din't even see them when I went Denmark last year ;)
There were a few bodyguards around but the public can still go so near, very 'friendly' indeed ^^
Weather was good this morning~
After an hour tour, we were ready to leave.
Next stop, Zadar, very interesting city because it is located on the Adriatic sea.
St. Lawrence's church
That's the St. Donatus church behind us
We took a stroll to the quay nearby to see Sea Organ.
The view here is absolutely amazing, sunset time!
Then we saw a huge cruise nearby, Aida
So you might wonder what is Sea Organ? Well it's actually an unique piece of architecture that plays music via the rhythm of the sea's waves and wind, very interesting!
You may go Youtube and search for related video to listen to the music.
The lights on the board were solar-triggered
That's the few hours tour around Zadar before checking into the hotel
The next morning, we departed to the most anticipated place in this trip, Plitvice (pronounced as plit-vi-say) National Park. A scenic, well preserved and famous national park in Croatia.
Along the way we already can see some ice accumulated on top of the mountain
Then everyone were sighing as we approached the park, cause it was raining!!! :( :(
But since we were already here, we got to get down from the bus and carry on....
The ticket to the park
What an unlucky day! See even the handsome staff also showing his moody face~
We followed the staff to walk in the park, with raincoats on and umbrella.
We saw a few waterfall along the way but it was too foggy, only can hear the sound~
Most places were flooded so we had to avoid those areas
So this is a park, and it was raining, and we were surrounded by water, so you can guess it must be cold here. I can tell you YES, it was super duper cold here! My toes were freezing and went numb after the trip!
Anyway since we were here die die must take some photos la! That's one of the waterfall behind us
It was actually a quick trip cause of the rain, hence I din't take many photos
I din't edit the picture, the camera lens were wet hence I got this blurry photo~
Really an unlucky day, wasted!
