Ruins in Solin

Last summer we took a trip to the old roman town of Solin a couple of kilometers north of Split.

It was a hot afternoon and fortunately we had brought some water in our bags. For an hour we walked among the ruins. Allthough the town was completely ruined long time ago, it is easy to be impressed by the remains revealed by archeologists. The picture above shows a part of the entrance to the roman amphitheatre from the 2nd-century. In the background we can see parts of Split.

Solin was once a proud roman town and the capital in this region of Croatia. In our imagination we can turn back the time and let us be amazed and impressed by the skills and effort that was needed in order to bulit a town like Solin. You will not regret spending an hour in Solin.
