What's Special About Split?

It's now the largest city on the Croatian coast, but it grew around the palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, which was built almost two millennia ago. Here you can enjoy your morning coffee on the imperial Peristyle square, have lunch, and buy souvenirs. The palace, part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a captivating labyrinth of narrow streets and alleys full of shops, restaurants, and bars where you can immerse yourself in the lively atmosphere of the city.

Split town

The city is a perfect destination for all types of tourists. History enthusiasts will enjoy their stroll through the streets of the old town center, gastronomy lovers will fall in love with the excellent Dalmatian cuisine, known as 'spiza', and the youth will rave at Ultra Europe, the country's largest electronic music festival.

Those seeking relaxation will find it on the beaches of the beautiful Adriatic. The most famous is certainly Bačvice, where you can watch bathers almost all year round enjoying themselves in shallow water with a ball game - Picigin. The city is a perfect starting point for exploring Dalmatia. The central location of the city makes it an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area of Dalmatia.

When Is the Best Time to Visit Split?

Split is a great destination all year round, and the ideal time to travel depends on your personal preferences and what you want to do during your travel time. Most tourists choose to visit in the summer. But depending on what your main goal is, it might be better to visit the city at another time.

Spring, compared to autumn and winter months, is less rainy and appeals to a wide range of travelers, from history enthusiasts exploring ancient ruins to nature lovers seeking outdoor adventures. The best activities in spring are city tours, hikes, such as to the Marjan Hill, and Easter celebrations. Summer is a charming mix of sun, sea, sand, and vibrant energy. If you enjoy relaxing, visiting islands, and attending summer festivals, then summer is the right time for you. However, the city can be crowded, and accommodation and activity prices are typically higher.

Autumn unfolds a quieter charm, the city takes on a relaxed atmosphere, allowing visitors to enjoy its beauty at a leisurely pace and relax in a quieter environment. The streets are less congested, making this time excellent for couples and solo travelers seeking a quiet experience. Winter offers the opportunity to make a real connection with the local culture. Whether you're a couple seeking a romantic getaway or a solo traveler seeking a quiet retreat, this season is perfect for dining in authentic restaurants and exploring the history and traditions of the city at your own pace.

What Should You Definitely Visit?

Whether you're traveling alone, with family, or as a couple, you won't run out of activities, attractions, and things to do in this city.

Explore the Attractions

You don't have to go far to see the main attractions, as most of them are located in the old town. The old town is a labyrinth of streets and cobblestone alleys surrounding Diocletian's Palace. The old town still inhabited today. You can even find hotels in the area or simply sit down for a coffee at one of the street cafes.

Diocletian's Palace is one of the ten UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Croatia. The palace was originally built as a retirement home for the Roman Emperor Diocletian in the fourth century and is now located in the center. It is an impressive structure resembling a fortress, with defensive walls, bastions, and gates. The narrow, winding streets are now the bustling streets lined with countless shops, apartments, restaurants, and bars.

The Peristyle is the central square of Diocletian's Palace. During Diocletian's rule, the square had a ceremonial function. It was a place where the Romans gathered, and the emperor addressed his people. Even today, the Peristyle serves as a meeting place. Due to its unique beauty and good acoustics, it has become the ideal backdrop for concerts and theater performances.

Enjoy a Magnificent View of the City

One of the most visited historical complexes is the Cathedral of Saint Domnius, considered the oldest Catholic cathedral in the world still used in its original form. When you enter part of this complex, you feel transported back in time. The real reason to visit the cathedral is the bell tower. From the top of the tower, you have a fantastic view of the old town and Diocletian's Palace.

Climb Marjan Hill

The Marjan Peninsula is located just west of the old town. A number of hiking trails crisscross the peninsula. For another great view of the city, take a walk up Marjan Hill. It is easily accessible from the old town via a staircase. You'll hike through pine forests to reach picturesque viewpoints. It's a fantastic place to watch the sunset or take in a view of the city at night.

Stroll Along the Riva

The Riva is a beautiful waterfront promenade that serves as the focal point of life for many residents of the city and its guests. It's a place for strolling, for a refreshing drink at one of the numerous terraces, or to enjoy the view of the sea.

The white marble pavement, numerous palm trees and benches, and white metal street lamps give the Riva a modern look. There are plenty of seating options, both in the form of benches and along the edge of the harbor, making it a good spot for a short break.

Explore the Beaches

Being a coastal city, Split naturally has some great beaches where you can relax after hours of exploring the old town. The one closest to the historic center of the city is Bačvice. It's located in the heart of the city, right next to the city harbor.

Bacvice beach

If the hustle and bustle at the central city beach is too much for you or you're afraid of being splashed by a 'flying' Picigin player, there are others that are more suitable. One of them is Kašjuni.

Take a Day Trip

This port city is a great city in itself, but it would be a shame not to see some of its surroundings during your vacation. Among the many day trips from the city, a day trip to Hvar is the most popular. It's hailed as the gateway to the Dalmatian Islands. From here, you can reach some of the most famous destinations on the Adriatic.

But there are countless other islands just a short ferry ride from the harbor. On Brač, you can visit the glittering beach of Zlatni rat, often referred to as the best in the country, or continue on to the hidden islands of Vis or Mljet. For a shot of adrenaline, you can embark on a rafting tour on the Cetina River, starting from Omiš. Additionally, the cities of Zadar and Šibenik are nearby and make perfect day trips from the city.

What Food to Try During Your Visit?

As the second-largest city in Croatia, Split is renowned for its vibrant culinary and wine scene. Alongside the stunning Adriatic Sea and bustling streets filled with locals and tourists, the city also offers some of the region's best traditional dishes. The Mediterranean cuisine is rich with healthy meals, including delicious grilled meat dishes, seafood, and plenty of olive oil.

Soparnik is a traditional Croatian snack originating from this region. It's a savory pie consisting of layers of dough filled with Swiss chard, garlic, parsley, and olive oil. Typically baked in an open fireplace, it contributes to its unique rustic flavor.

Peka is a traditional Dalmatian dish. This slow-cooked dish involves placing a protein of choice - usually veal, lamb, or octopus - and vegetables into a large iron pot with a heavy metal lid. It is then cooked for up to 4 hours in an open fireplace, with hot coals and embers placed on top of the lid. This particular dish is more than just a meal - it's an experience.

If you're looking for a true taste of Dalmatian culinary magic, then Pašticada is just for you. Pašticada is a type of braised beef highly popular in Dalmatian cuisine. The dish is prepared by slow-cooking beef in a tomato sauce and usually served with gnocchi or pasta.

Black Risotto (crni rižot in Croatian) is a must-try in Croatia. This aromatic and creamy risotto is prepared with seafood and gets its unique black color from squid ink. Crni rižot is often served with seafood such as mussels and is therefore another excellent choice if you enjoy shellfish. Just beware of your smile, as your teeth and lips are likely to turn black while consuming it.


What Activities Are Best for Children?

The Croatian city is an excellent destination for families with varying interests. Here, beautiful beaches, picturesque parks, and historical sites such as Diocletian's Palace and Klis Fortress await discovery.

Diocletian's Palace, with its fairytale backdrop, is a great place for kids to explore and ignite their imagination. To bring the ancient Roman city back to life, a visit to the VR experience **Diocletian's Dream** is especially suitable for children. The experience portrays what it was like when Diocletian ruled the Roman Empire and takes you from today's crypts through the streets of the city to the private rooms of the palace and even to the Riva.

Klis Fortress, located on a hill about 5 kilometers outside the city, is worth a visit for families due to its stunning views and rich history. The fortress also served as a filming location for scenes in the popular TV series "Game of Thrones," so you can easily imagine seeing a dragon strolling by.

Poljud Stadium, with its striking shell-shaped design and location by the sea, will appeal not only to sports fans but also to those with an eye for aesthetics. The stadium is home to the famous team Hajduk, one of the most successful football clubs in Croatian history. Football fans in the family can experience an exciting day cheering with the locals as they watch Hajduk play here.
