The second-largest city in Croatia, Split has a unique setting. Its dramatic coastal mountains act as the perfect backdrop to the turquoise waters of the Adriatic. You’ll get a chance to appreciate this gorgeous cityscape when making a boat journey to or from the city.
Split is often seen mainly as a transport hub to the hip nearby islands (which, indeed, it is), but the city is a true Croatian beauty, it is the perfect place to see Dalmatian life as it’s really lived.
Always buzzing, this exuberant city has just the right balance of tradition and modernity filled with historical sights. 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, local markets, restaurants & shops (including Zara, Guess, Diesel and many more designer boutiques) thriving amid the atmospheric old walls where Split life has been going on for thousands of years. Croatia is fast becoming the clubbing capital of europe with festivals such as Ultra being hosted in stadium Poljud and The Riva's annual summer music festival attracting world renowned dj's such as David Guetta & Carl Cox, Split is the place to be.
