Of all the museums to choose from in a city, I insisted on Froggyland [Kralja Tomislava 5, Split, Croatia]. Everyday I would tell my companion after long weary hours of exploration, let’s go to Froggyland and at last – she was worn down by my incessant exuberance. Heck, I even invited our new hostel roommate to join us. How do you know if someone is cool? Take them to Froggyland on a first date and if they can handle it, they’re in. This chick from Montreal was in. We all were. Froggyland stays open late so it’s a real alternative nightlife spot. But don’t go looking to meet others, we were the only people there. What is Froggyland? you must be thinking by now. Well it is a small inexpensive museum with an exhibit of taxidermy frogs over 100 years old. There are a number of absolutely ridiculous scenes. Ever think of a frog at the dentist? Check.
This is the world’s largest collection of taxidermy frogs– 507 to be exact. I’m proud? to say this absurd exhibit isn’t my first rodeo, as I have visited the Dead Frog Circus in Massachusetts. Froggyland brings this craft to a whole new level though, and if you’re into the strange and deranged drag your good hearted friends here on your visit to Split.
