Split Guide


Split is the largest city in Dalmatia and second largest in all Croatia. A typical Mediterranean city, Split has a small town vibe, lots of murmur and easy-going locals.

It was built as the Roman Emperor Diocletian’s retirement home. The streets and alleyways you will walk, one of the finest examples of the architecture of the late Empire, have been inhabited 1700 years ago! The 12 sphinxes that the Romans brought from Egypt, remarkably preserved Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque palaces, Diocletian’s Palace, are among many Split’s treasures to discover. This beautiful center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy sunsets from the terraces of coffee bars on Split’s newly remodeled “riva” (seaside promenade). In the evening, find a bar, a pub, a club, or simply an open air café to whittle the night away. In Split the choice is yours.
