Split

Croatia’s second-largest city, Split is a great place to see Dalmatian life as it’s really lived. Always buzzing, this exuberant city has just the right balance between tradition and modernity. Step inside Diocletian’s Palace (a Unesco World Heritage Site and one of the world’s most impressive Roman monuments) and you’ll see dozens of bars, restaurants and shops thriving amid the atmospheric old walls where Split has been humming along for thousands of years.

Policies & F.A.Q.

Dalmatian gastronomy

Make sure when you are here to enjoy local pasticada, a rich beef stew, slow-cooked with the chef’s special spices; cream of shrimp soup, sinfully rich and delicious; paradizot, a meringue, cream dessert that’s almost lighter than air; fabulous local ice cream made with fresh figs and othe fruits of the season and of course, all that wonderful seafood!

Marjan forest park

Marjan is also known as the “lungs of the city”. This forested hill is a green oasis, the most popular relaxation and recreation place for locals. It is peaceful and filled with many natural and jogging paths. From the top, you can enjoy the spectacular view to the city or the islands.

Museums and galleries

Split, as the city of very rich heritage, also offers numerous museums and galleries. One of the most popular is the Gallery of famous Croatian sculptor Ivan Meštrović on the southern slopes of Marjan. Also don’t miss the Archaeological museums with the impressive collection, and the Croatian Maritime Museum within the Gripe fortress.

Cycling tours

Split is a perfect location to explore by bike. Bikes are available for rent at many locations in the Old town. You can pick the city map at local agency, but you can’t get lost – just follow the coast. Best starting point is western Riva; from there, you can go west to reach Bene in Marjan hill, or go east towards popular Bacvice beach and Znjan.

The Palace of Diocletian

This Palace is the most famous city symbol, built by Roman Emperor Diocletian in 3rd century AD. Over the centuries city of Split grew around it. Inside its impressive architecture there is St. Duje’s cathedral, the oldest Catholic cathedral in the world still in use in the original structure.

Riva – City promenade

Famous Riva, coastal promenade under the palm trees, is one of the most popular city landmarks and meeting points. It is place where locals enjoy morning coffee in numerous cafe bars, but also a place for large events – celebrations, processions, or even demonstrations.

Rural tourism

Visit nearby hinterland around Split, with interesting rural villages and places like Sinj and Klis with rich history and delicious local cuisine. Sinj is known for an authentic anual knights tournament, over 300 years long, celebrating victory over the Turks. Klis and its ancient clifftop fortress were used as a filming location for Game of Thrones.

Sea Kayaking

This is a great way to enjoy the beautiful view of the sights from the sea.  Kayaks are easier than canoeing, stable and comfortable. This is also a great way to escape from the crowd. You can rent a two-person kayak with a professional guide, and choose local trips or island kayaking on multi-day trips.
