Split, the second largest city of Croatia, is one of the major touristic destinations of the Mediterranean. With an interesting offer of things to see and visit and a huge accommodation offer including hotels, hostels and B&Bs, it is the perfect destination for your holidays.
The city center of Split has been declared part of the UNESCO World´s Patrimony for its historical value and there are hundreds of monuments and ruins to visit.
The Diocleciano Temple is a mandatory stop. Built in IV century, it is the city´s main landmark. Within the walls of this majestic temple is the stunning Cathedral of Split. In this amazing city, the cultural offer is huge and there is something for everyone. You should visit the Archeologycal museum or the Museum of Split, but you mustn’t miss the National Theater either.
At just 10 minutes from the city center we find the Marjan peninsula, which provides its visitors with wonderful views of the city. Most of the local residents tend to spend their weekends there so it will probably be quite crowded, but the place is worth visiting. The best way of getting there is hiring a bike and enjoying the wonderful natural landscape. We also recommend you to take the ferry and visit the Isle of Hvar. Famous for having exclusive beaches of crystalline waters, this is one of Croatia´s paradise.
If you are planning to book a hotel and visit Split, the best time of the year for doing so is in summer, when many festivals and shows take place in this vibrant city. The Diocletian nights are one of the major attractions during the summer months. All the people dress up like the Romans and spend the day eating and drinking in the palace, but there are hundreds of things to be done in this Mediterranean city.
