I had lunch today at Galija, a pizzeria and restaurant on Tonciceva. I had a huge mushroom pizza (as you can see here) and it was both delicious and very reasonably priced.
I’d definitely recommend this restaurant. It’s got lots of outdoor seating, friendly staff and a great menu. Pretty much everything on the menu, from pasta dishes to a wide variety of pizzas, were under 50 kuna which is around €6 so it really is good value.
After that delicious meal I went to check out some of the city’s top museums and galleries.
First up was the Split Art Gallery (Galerija umjetnina), which is filled with intriguing examples of modern and contemporary art works but both national and international artists. Paintings, sculptures, video installations and more can all be seen in this blissfully cool gallery.
Then it was on to two of the city’s top museums, the Split City Museum and the Ethnographic Museum. Both were very interesting but I have to say, I did prefer the Ethnographic Museum, just because of how colourful the displays were, including all kinds of traditional Dalmatian clothing, shoes, jewellery and plenty more. These museums are very close to each other and are located within Diocletian’s Palace.
Right now, I’m back at Old Town Hostel Split but in a short while I’m going to head out again to check out some of the bars that Dora recommended to me yesterday.
