"If you visit Split without visiting Solin, you did bigger sin than visiting Napoli without visiting Pompeii" - that's what Slobodan Novak, Croatian writer, said about Solin.
I visited Solin on March 22, 2019.

How did I arrive in Solin

I went from Split by car. The journey which is only 10 kilometers long was pleasant and it took me only a few minutes to get there.
Another thing which was pleasing was easiness of finding parking place in the center of the city. And even when I go there during summer season it's easy to find parking space.

Solin gave me the impression of the small, intimate and idyllic city. In the centre of the town, there is a large green area with kids playing.
Many young families were taking a walk and enjoying early spring sun.
There was no noise of the cars and other sounds that are featured by large cities.
What is more, Solin is not crowded even during the summer season. It could be an accommodation option for people who want quiet holidays. And it is not far away from Split, only 10 kilometres distance.
