1945 SPLIT, Letter with unusual route

Recently I found an interesting letter, addressed from Kaštel Stari to Zagreb and traveled via the Zadar. The normal route for mail from Šibenik and Split to Zagreb was by train through the Knin, but it looks like that this letter traveled unusually, first by boat to Zadar and then to Zagreb. 

1945 Split local provisional issue, registered letter, properly franked with 50 kn, sent from Kaštel Stari (17.V.45) to Zagreb. Censor cancellation No. 3 (Split). Via Zadar cancellation (20.V.45).

Zadar cancellation POŠTA (?) / 20.V.45 / ZADAR.
I have never seen this cancellation before, so I will be grateful for any information.
