Croatia - Dubrovnik & Dalmatian Coast

Split is Dalmatia’s largest city and Croatia’s second largest (after Zagreb). Split is a classic Mediterranean city with a small-town vibe, busy streets, and relaxed locals. Bustling cafes, Riva – a seafront promenade perfect for strolling or people-watching, charming restaurants serving fresh mouth-watering dishes, breezy beaches, historic boutique hotels, and cozy wine bars, are just some of the attractions that draw thousands of visitors to Split every year.

You’ll never need to walk far to see Split’s top sights. Most of them are located within the Split old town. Split’s old town is located within a 1,700-year-old Diocletian Palace. The Palace measures approximately 160 m by 190 m. Each of the four town’s walls has a gate (Golden Gate, Silver Gate, Bras Gate, and Iron Gate) located at the centre of the wall, dividing the Palace into four quarters. The bell tower of the church of St. Dominus is one of the symbols of Split. First built from the 13th to the 16th century, the bell tower went under complete renovation in the 19th century. The views from the top are fantastic and worth a climb via a narrow staircase. Established in the 17th century by peasants and fishermen, one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Split, Varos is a charming place consisting mainly of traditional stone houses with green wooden shutters. It’s located on the south side of Marjan Hill, just northwest of Diocletian’s Palace.
