An Atmospheric Evening In Split

Moonlight. Mushy 60’s music. The company of a good man in the midst of lovely strangers. Chilled beer on the candle lit steps of a restaurant named after a Phaeronic necropolis, in the hippostyle hall of an ancient Roman Palace comprising the heart of a beautiful Balkan city. All watched over by Thutmosis’ inscrutable Sphinx.

One of my favourite things to do of an evening in Split.

    1. It was a special experience Lisa. And free (except for the optional beer) 🙂 Thank you for your virtual company dear friend. Have a fabulous day!

    1. Glad you enjoyed this Paolo. I thought that ambience was hard to beat 🙂
      Love the photo of the rooftops you linked to. Is it from the bell tower?

  1. That kind of evening and atmosphere can never be planned, which makes it all the more special. Kind of how I felt at a recent lunch spot in Cuba; I could never have anticipated the delight, which made it even more delightful!

    1. You are so right Lex. I can imagine Cuba throwing up such unexpected delights. Can’t wait to experience it myself.

      1. Dear Lex, could you please release my comment from your spam folder? I seem to get blacklisted by some blogs everytime I return after a long absence!

Let me know what you think
