KOD SFINGE VANEUROPSKE ZVIRI
OK.. So let start with the title. Kod Sfinge vaneuropske zviri. Sfinga translated to english is Sphinx, and Vaneuropske zviri is The best outside Europe. Probably you asked yourself who would give such a name to a resturant, well locals would. There are three sphinx left in Split from Diocletian time, but they are even older ( 3500 years ) and they were brought from Egypt because Diocletian reigned there in his East Empire. However there were more than 3 but during history locals destroyed them. Now one of three is in front of Cathedral, second one is in the Archeological museum of Split and third one is in front of Jupiter’s temple where this hidden gem took its place in the middle of tourist land. Here you can find simply delicious vegetarian and vegan food with the possibility of additional dishes being adapted to make them vegetarian / vegan.
The restaurant literally looks like a dream, it will make you fall in love at first sight, cosy and sheltered, yet at the heart of all the history and life. The charm of this restaurant is in its being located right in the centre of the hustle and bustle of the busiest site in Split, the ensemble of Diocletian’s Palace, with its narrow streets and great numbers of visitors yet, it has the ambiance of the most serene spot in the world. You will be touched by the warmth of the welcome, the humanity of the people, the peace and authentic architecture, and, yet again, one does not feel tucked away from the sun and the life of the city. There is 99,9% of chances you will want to get back as soon as you walk out of it.
