Wanderlust Daydreams: Split

Posted by on August 26, 2011

On this Friday I am dreaming of escaping to somewhere warm and sunny near the water and – wait, I live in LA – so somewhere else warm and sunny by the sea.

I keep looking at this hotel in Split, Croatia.  It is within the walls of Diocletian’s Palace.  Which is an awesome place where people moved into a Roman palace after the fall of the empire and just started living there.   In the Hotel Vestibul each room shares at least part of a wall built by Diocletian.

Taking an ancient building and updating it into a contemporary hotel is extremely difficult to do well.  This might not be my personal taste, but they did a great job.

I could get some reading done there for sure.

First two photos from split.info and the others from the Hotel Vestibul site.
