Storm of the Century

Split does get a lot of sun. What Split does not get is – snow. But all that changed during the infamous European cold wave of 2012.

What historians are now calling the coldest day in Split’s history, February 3rd, 2012, transformed the warm Mediterranean city into a fortress of wind, snow and ice. But record low temperatures didn’t stop the people of Spit to go outside and witness the white scenery¬† – not forgotten to this day.

The whole city was basically shut down – no school (oh boy, did those kids enjoy the snow…), no public transport…

On that day, Split experienced a record snowfall of 25 cm (9.8 inches).

This so called “Storm of the Century” brought a lot of good times for the locals as snow is definitely not something to be seen every day around these parts of Croatia…
