Split Day Two: Froggyland

In Split, in the shadow of Diocletian's Palace, is a roadside attraction worthy of Central Florida: Froggyland! Froggyland is a collection of 507 actual frogs, stuffed between 1910 and 1920 by a Hungarian taxidermist, and mounted in 21 different scenes from real life.

The Froggy dentist scene made the poster
A courtroom scene, complete with "prisoner" frogs in chains. An afternoon in the park, complete with picnicking frogs. A frog athletic competition, with frog wrestlers, a frog pole vaulter, a frog discus thrower.  Awesome.

Unfortunately, no photographs were allowed to be taken within Froggyland. It's awesomeness may be witnessed only upon paying the admission fee of 100 kuna. Well worth it.
