Enjoying a stunning location on a dramatic coastal ridge overlooking the deep blue waters of the Adriatic Sea, the city of Split is one of Croatia's most popular travel destinations. It's just the right mix of the ancient and the modern with a unique historical heritage influenced by the ancient Greeks, Romans, the Byzantines and the Venetians to name just a few. The most outstanding legacy of this mixed heritage is the imposing Diocletian Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the living heart of the city. It's more than just a palace, occupying half the old town of Split with a labyrinth of streets lined by bars, cafes and restaurants.Read More
Many of Split's attractions lie within the old city walls including the perfectly preserved Cathedral of St Domnius and the 18th century synagogue - the third oldest in Europe. Those interested in history will enjoy the handful of museums documenting the Roman and early Christian period with interesting exhibits of wall panels, weaponry, furniture and sculptures. The Gallery of Fine Arts and Meštrović Gallery are the places to go for collections of the old masters as well as modern Croatian artists.
With an international airport Split is one of Croatia's coastal transport hubs and a well-used starting or finishing point for sailing routes along the Adriatic coast. Whether visiting Croatia on a sailing holiday or touring the mainland, Split is definitely worth a few days of your time with a world-class gastronomy, thriving bars and clubs and a host of cultural events held in the city during the popular summer months.
