Split, Croatia 2016.
Split is the second-largest city of Croatia and the largest city of the region of Dalmatia. It lies on the eastern shore of the Adriatic Sea,
centered on the Roman Palace of the Emperor Diocletian. Split is one of the oldest cities in the area. While traditionally considered just
over 1,700 years old, counting from the construction of Diocletian's Palace in 305 CE, the city was in fact founded as the Greek colony of
Aspálathos in the 4th century BC, about 2,400 years ago.

The historic city of Split built around the Palace was included in the UNESCO register of World Cultural Heritage in 1979.





















































Diocletian's Palace (Croatian: Dioklecijanova palača) is an ancient palace built by the Roman Emperor Diocletian at the turn of the fourth century AD,
that today forms about half the old town and city center of Split, in Croatia. While it is referred to as a "palace" because of its intended use as the
retirement residence of Diocletian, the term can be misleading as the structure is massive and more resembles a large fortress: about half of it was for
Diocletian's personal use, and the rest housed the military garrison.

Zadar, Croatia 2016.
Boasting a historic old town of Roman ruins, medieval churches, cosmopolitan cafes and quality museums set on a small peninsula, Zadar is an intriguing city.
It’s not too crowded, it’s not overrun with tourists and its two unique attractions – the sound-and-light spectacle of the Sea Organ and the Sun Salutation
– need to be seen and heard to be believed.

While it’s not a picture-postcard kind of place, the mix of ancient relics, Habsburg elegance, coastal setting and unsightly tower blocks is what gives Zadar so
much character. It's no Dubrovnik, but it's not a museum town either – this is a living, vibrant city, enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.





Zadar's "Kopnena vrata" (Landward Gate) with the Lion of Saint Mark, a symbol of the Republic of Venice, above it.





Zadar fortifications.





The church of St. Donatus is the largest Pre-romanesque building in Croatia. It is also an example of the centralised type of the Carolingian period in Europe.
Its name refers to Donatus of Zadar, who began construction on this church in the 9th century and ended it on the northeastern part of the Roman forum.









Roman Forum ruins - the largest on the eastern side of the Adriatic, founded by the first Roman Emperor Augustus, as shown by two stone inscriptions about
its completion dating from the 3rd century.





People Square.









City wall along the coast for defense fortifications.





Off-tourist season, the beach was not crowded, and the buildings are Zadar University.

















Sea Organ sound could be heard from these holes.

Opatija, Croatia 2016.
Variously known as the ‘Old Dame’, the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’ or the ‘Queen of Tourism’, Opatija in Croatia is a remarkable seaside resort town
with a long history of tourism stretching back to 1844. Opatija is surrounded by beautiful woods of bay laurel. The whole sea-coast to the north
and south of Opatija is rocky and picturesque, and contains several smaller winter resorts.





Very nice promenade.

Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia 2016.
Plitvice Lakes National Park (Croatian: Nacionalni park Plitvička jezera), colloquial Plitvice, is one of the oldest national parks in Southeast Europe
and the largest national park in Croatia. In 1979, Plitvice Lakes National Park was added to the UNESCO World Heritage register.
Within the boundaries of this heavily forested national park, 16 crystalline lakes tumble into each other via a series of waterfalls and cascades.
The mineral-rich waters carve through the rock, depositing tufa in continually changing formations. Clouds of butterflies drift above the 18km of
wooden footbridges and pathways that snake around the edges and across the rumbling water.
The national park is world-famous for its lakes arranged in cascades, and more than 1 million visitors are recorded each year. The lakes are renowned
for their distinctive colors, ranging from azure to green, grey or blue. The colors change constantly depending on the quantity of minerals or organisms
in the water and the angle of sunlight.

We joined a local tour to visit Plitvice Lakes from Opatija (180km). It was 11 hour trip with only 5 hours in the park, but we really enjoyed it. I think it's a must-see if you're in Croatia.





Boat dock for moving people to different areas.













Narrow boardwalk around the lakes.





































Crystal clear water with lot of fishes.









With lot of people on narrow boardwalk,it was hard to take good pictures. October is off-tourist rain season, lucky us! The weather was perfect today.

Titanic Museum - Belfast, Northern Ireland 2016.

In Ireland, the echoes of hammering rivets bounce from the shipyard building RMS Titanic. When RMS Titanic sailed away on her maiden voyage on April 10th, 1912,
she was hailed as 'the new wonder of the world'. A remarkable feat of engineering, she was the largest and most luxuriously appointed ship ever seen and, despite
her tragic sinking five days later, she remains a source of enduring pride in the city where she was built.

Titanic museum, the biggest Titanic exhibition in the world. The first sight of the building catches visitors by surprise, with the striking sun-catching plates of aluminium
meant to echo waves and ice. Titanic Belfast’s architects state that “the final form encompasses all that that went before: crystal, iceberg, star and bow.”





This art for remembering Rose standing at the front of ship bow in Titanic movie, and said "I'm king of the world".

Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland 2016.

The Giant's Causeway, renowned for its polygonal columns of layered basalt, is the only UNESCO World Heritage Site in Northern Ireland and
in 2015 was awarded the UKs Best Heritage Attraction at the British Travel Awards.

Resulting from a volcanic eruption 60 million years ago, this is the focal point of a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has attracted
visitors for centuries. It harbours a wealth of local and natural history.

The Giant’s Causeway is also steeped in myth and legend. Some say it was carved from the coast by the mighty giant, Finn McCool who left behind an
ancient home full of folklore. Look out for clues of his existence – including The Giant’s Boot and Wishing Chair.

Rising and blending into the landscape, with walls of glass, basalt columns and a state of the art interior designed by award winning architects Heneghan-Peng,
The Giant’s Causeway Visitor Centre is truly innovative. The grass roof offers 360 degree views of the Causeway coastline. Explore the interactive spaces, watch
Finn McCool on the big screen and unlock the secrets of this inspirational landscape.





Very long walk or taking bus which costs $2.00 Pounds.

Derry - Londonderry, Northern Ireland 2016.

Sitting snug on the River Foyle, Derry-Londonderry is Ireland’s only surviving walled city. But don’t think for a second that those walls hem it in.
Northern Ireland’s second city a buzzing, modern spot with great pubs, fantastic restaurants and a lively cultural scene.





Peace Bridge with two structural arms heading in opposite directions, symbolizing the unification of both communities from the opposite sides of the Foyle river,
the Protestant Waterside and the Nationalist Bogside, these two opposed and independent arms are now united in a structural handshake across the river.
Opened in 2011 this 235 metre long, 4 metre wide curved footpath, track and cycleway stretches from the Guild Hall in the city centre of Derry City to Ebrington
Square and St Columb’s Park on the far side of the River Foyle.

Galway, Ireland 2016.

Rising over the River Corrib, imposing Galway Cathedral was dedicated by the late Cardinal Richard Cushing of Boston in 1965. The interior is fantastic,
with a beautifully decorated dome, attractive Romanesque arches, lovely mosaics and rough-hewn stonework emblazoned with copious stained glass.
