City of Split

The escape from the city into the intact nature is enabled to us by a unique blend of mountains, islands and rivers that surround the city of Split.

Modern life
and ancient history

Split as the biggest city in the Adriatic with its 200,000 inhabitants has in recent years turned from transit point to a tourist destination itself.

A walk through the ancient city takes you through time, along the great examples of ancient architecture like Peristyle, Romanesque Church, Renaissance portals, Baroque facades and modern architecture superbly merged in the rich heritage.

Nearby historical towns Trogir and Omis together with astonishing islands in front of Split, have the capital of Dalmatia as their center of life, making the city a modern area where the life is not overcrowded. It is rather dynamic, adapted to the Mediterranean way of life with a lot of relaxing moments.

Diocletian’s Palace and stone made little streets – where you can feel the history – together with seafront create the center of all the happenings in Split. A coffee at sunny seafront, a refreshing drink in a deep shadow of city walls of the palace protected by UNESCO or seafood specialties in some of traditional restaurants, represent only a small part of a choice tourists have in Split..

Before anything else, the city offers its everyday life. Swimming at the over one-century old city beach Bacvice would not be a surprise even in January. Local placers of Picigin, a unique game in a shallow with a small tennis alike ball, would be keen to get you into a team… More than museums, gastronomic or tourists offers, Split gives you itself. Visitors are always invited to join the everyday life of the city, whether to try the fresh fruits and vegetables at the traditional open market or seafood at the fish market or to join the locals in supporting their over 100 years old football club Hajduk…Split wants you to be part of it.
