By Paul Bradbury     May 21, 2014 in Travel
Split - With the Adriatic Sea bathed in trademark sunshine, the 16th Croatia Boat Show gets underway in the Dalmatian capital of Split.
With ever more tourists arriving in Split, the 16th Croatia Boat Show opened on May 21, 2014, in trademark bright sunshine and in a new location on the Split waterfront, an event attended by Digital Journal.
The opening was attended by Deputy Tourism Minister Luka Brcic and Split Mayor Ivo Baldasar on the recently opened West Coast extension of the Split waterfront, most famous as the home to the 1,700 year-old Diocletian's Palace, the retirement home of the Roman emperor of the same name.
