Continuing our look at the Adriatic coast as it once was. Today it is one of Croatia’s hottest tourist destinations, but back in 1933, Split looked quite different. 

A city which is 1,700 years old, but a city which has not encountered as much growth and expansion over 50 years than in the last half-century. 

This is how Split looked from the air back in 1933. Diocletian’s Palace ver much the dominant feature.

And below, the Split of today, taken a couple of years ago. Amazing how a historic city can grow so quickly. But while tourism in Split was very limited back then and the city was miniscule in comparison with today’s throbbing metropolis, the two did have a few things in common, one of which was a seaplane service. Split used to be connected to Prague by seaplane, and it was of course once more connected until recently by European Coastal Airlines. A new company is reported to be bringing the seaplane service back for next season.
