Split has often been referred to as the most vibrant city on the Adriatic coast – with reason. The city has outstanding cultural landmarks and one of the most famous is the Diocletian’s Palace. It was built by the Roman Emperor and most of it is still standing today. It is well worth a visit and is listed as a UNESCO site.
The Cathedral of Domnius and the People´s Square are perfect examples of how the city has changed over the centuries. Museum lovers can visit the Maritime Museum and the Museum of Croatia. Don´t forget to visit the Mestrovic gallery if you are an art lover.
Split is famous for it´s beautiful beaches. They are popular among tourist and locals. Coffee bars are very popular along the promenade and there are a number of beautiful parks where you can relax. Secluded beaches and coves can be found further away from the city.
The night life in Split is exciting and offers a variety of activities for tourists. During the winter months the The Croatian National Theatre offers ballet and opera performances. The architecture is exquisite and it is well worth a visit. There are`plenty of bars and it won´t be difficult to meet locals if you are interested to explore the local culture.
How to get to Split.
Split Airport is located more or less 20 km from Split. Split airport transfers are available with a dedicated driver who will meet you at the airport. For larger groups a Split airport shuttle is available. They will take you right to the door of your holiday accommodation. If your flight is delayed they will wait an additional 60 minutes – free of charge. In my opinion this is the best solution especially if you are travelling with a lot of luggage on a crowded airport bus.
