Split. Croatia. The First Stop

Sergey Dolya • 4 minutes read • March 31st, 2016
The first stop on our cruise was the Croatian town of 


– a cute coastal town with well-groomed quay and an old town. It was difficult to pass the groups of tourists in the narrow streets. Linen was dried directly beneath the windows, and the walls of the city were “adorned” with homosexual graffiti ...
I had already written a few years ago about the arrangement of cruise liners, and about the cruises in general. In a few words, the ship can either moor at the pier:
Or stand on the anchorage and bring passengers ashore on "tenders" - large, covered lifeboats:
Such boat can hold about 80 persons:
The small quay was planted with palm trees:
The old town was small and inferior to its older brother 


Because of the narrow streets, the sun didn't shine here. The owner of a souvenir shop caught a narrow strip of the sun, where he lounged and ignored passersby:
The restaurant’s name was "Appetite" – it’s a good name for a restaurant:
There were a lot of scales on the streets - I hadn't seen them anywhere in a long time:
"The Last Supper" sculpture was situated near the central cathedral. It was surrounded by Spanish women who were all wearing identical shirts. There were no less than 300 people in the square​​:
Only later, looking at the photos, I read the inscription on their T-shirts. Apparently, these are the distributors of Avon cosmetics. By the way, does the sculpture on the left resemble Brad Pitt, or is it just me?  
"No parking" was written at the gate:
I was able to make out the words "Pederi" and "Namazi":
Nobody had dryers, that’s why the view of the old town is covered with wet laundry:
A rope on rollers was tightened between adjacent windows to dry laundry:
There were a couple of markets next to the old town:
Here’s an interesting form of scales. You can scoop something and weigh it immediately:
Cafe on the market:
This was the fish market. I wonder what these fish are called? I didn't see them once in the Adriatic Sea, so I didn't know that it could be caught and eaten: 
In total, we walked in 


for several hours. There was nothing to photograph under the scorching midday sun, and most of the time we just enjoyed the sea breeze and aromatic tea with honey, sitting on the seafront:
We spent the whole day at sea. I will try my best to write about Venice, but it was not my favorite place.
