Known for its beaches and the Diocletian's Palace


Split town is on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast. Known for its beaches and the Diocletian’s Palace. Erected by the Roman emperor in the 4th century. Within its white stone walls and under its courtyards and galleries are shops, bars, cafes, hotels and several houses. Without hiding their pride, the people of Split will tell you that their city is “the most beautiful one in the world and beyond”. You better not discuss this with them, for well spirited Split will convince you in this as soon as you discover it! The second-largest city in Croatia, Split is a great place to see Dalmatian life first hand. This busy city has just the right balance of tradition and modernity.

Split town is always lively

Its popular palm tree promenade invites you to walk down to the Roman emperor Diocletian’s palace. A UNESCO World Heritage Site. Split town is often seen mainly as a transition port to the popular nearby islands. But the city has been cleaning itself up and attracting attention by renovating the old Riva (seafront). Replacing the former cement strolling ground with a marble look. Even though the modern transformation hasn’t pleased all the locals, the Riva is a beauty.  Its dramatic coastal mountains act as the perfect background to the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea. You’ll get a chance to appreciate this gorgeous city line when taking a ferry journey to or from the city.
