Destinations / Croatia / Dalmatian Riviera / Split
As the largest town along the Dalmatian Coast, Split is a popular holiday destination in Croatia if you're looking for an idyllic Mediterranean escape. The beautiful seafront is great for strolling, the beach is close by and there are loads of restaurants, museums, galleries and attractions to keep you entertained day and night.
The top attraction in Split is The Diocletian Palace - one of the Croatia's 7 World UNESCO Heritage Sites. Wander through the streets of the old town to uncover the four original town gates - Golden, Silver, Bronze and Iron, an open-air pavilion dating back to Roman times, a pair of sphinxes near the Jupiter Temple and “Let me pass street”, rumoured to be the narrowest in the world. With numerous galleries, museums and historical buildings as well as the scenic churches on Marjan Hill, Split is made for exploring the culture of the Dalmatian region.
Or, if you prefer outdoor pursuits to ancient haunts, the sandy Bacvice beach is a short stroll from the old town, providing the perfect spot for practising water sports, sunbathing or lounging at the many waterfront cafes. With average temperatures of 25°C in the summer months, this is the perfect location to cool off.
One of the highlights of holidays in Split has to be the fresh, Dalmatian cuisine. For an authentic taste of Croatia, we recommend visiting the Green market (Pazar), and dining out at the many restaurants and wine bars in Split such as Perivoj, set in a beautiful villa dating back to 1900, Buffet Fife, located in the old fisherman’s quarters and specialising in seafood, and Uje Oil Bar, a chic tapas restaurant situated right in the heart of Split.
With many wonderful reasons to visit Split, it’s not surprising that it’s known as the Pearl of the Adriatic. Whether you’re seeking a romantic couple’s escape or a group trip with friends, you can easily plan your holidays in Croatia with our great-value packages.
