Guide of Split

Geography

Split is Croatia's second-largest city and the county seat of Split County in Dalmatia. It is located on the eastern bank of the Adriatic Sea and spreads out across a central peninsula and its environs. In addition to being a regional transportation centre and a major tourist destination, the city is also just a hop away from the Adriatic Islands and the Apennine Peninsula.

Climate in Split

Split has a climate that is both humid subtropical and Mediterranean in nature, with just one summer month receiving less than 40 mm (1.6 in) of rainfall, preventing it from being classed as either exclusively humid subtropical or Mediterranean in nature. Summers are hot and relatively dry, while winters are pleasant and moist, but they may seem chilly at times due to the strong northern wind that blows across the region.

Culture

The old town of Split was included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979, making it one of the most visited places on the planet. Split is believed to be one of Croatia's cultural capitals.

Things To Do in Split

Visit the Diocletian’s Palace

The majestic Diocletian's Palace is located in the heart of Split's Old Town and should be at the top of your Split itinerary. The palace was built in the fourth century as a retirement residence for Emperor Diocletian, and its construction included aspects of a typical Roman garrison camp. It is scarcely surprising that this beautifully conserved edifice has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The basement of this magnificent mansion was used as a filming site for Game of Thrones. The Temple of Jupiter, the Cathedral of St. Domnius, the 17th-century Milesi Palace, and the monument of Marko Marulic, hailed as the founder of Croatian literature, are all must-sees inside the complex. The main area that surrounds the Diocletian Palace is fairly lively. There's also a bar with sofas on its outdoor terrace where you can listen to live music while sipping a drink or two.

Explore the Ivan Mestrovic Gallery

Ivan Mestrovic is one of Croatia's best sculptors, and exploring his gallery to discover more about this world-class artist may be extremely intriguing. Widely regarded as one of the most prominent sculptors of the twentieth century, his works on show here comprise a collection of 86 sculptures in stone, marble, wood, gypsum, and bronze, as well as many sketches. The gallery's stunning outdoor sculpture garden has eight enormous bronze figures that are equally enthralling. It is worth noting that the colossal statue of Grgur Ninski, a 10th-century Croatian bishop, standing outside the Golden Gate of the Diocletian Palace was carved by this skilled artisan and bears his testimony.

Make a day trip to the Krka National Park

Krka National Park, which follows the course of the Krka River, is an hour's drive from Split. The Stradinski Buk is a magnificent natural pool fed by 17 waterfalls, the tallest of which is approximately 50 meters. The sun twirls over the falling water, transporting you to a mystical realm.

Eating Out in Split

Split has a diverse range of restaurants that appeal to all types of visitors, whether they are looking for a low-cost meal or a spectacular fine dining experience. Here are a few of our favourites. Trattoria Bajamonti, tucked away within Diocletian's Palace, serves a fantastic assortment of Mediterranean cuisine, with a concentration on pasta and seafood. The attractive decor and kind employees guarantee that customers have a great supper. Try to get a seat at one of the outside tables. Kodoba Kod Joze is a typical Croatian restaurant serving traditional Dalmatian cuisine. Enjoy the peka, a traditional meal consisting of octopus, pork, or seasonal vegetables. It is best experienced by making a reservation and should be shared by at least four people, so gather your pals for a hearty dinner. Pizzeria Galija, which started in 1980, serves a variety of wood-fired delectable pizzas that melt in your mouth. Enjoy the Seljacka pizza with its delicious toppings.

Transport

Airport

Split is served by Split Airport, also known as Resnik Airport (SPU) which is located 19 km from Split in the town of Kastela.

Getting Around Split

Spit was built around the Diocletian Palace, and most of the city streets are pedestrian-friendly. You may, however, use the public transportation system to get to most sites, even the suburbs. The bus station in Trznica will be the nearest. You may also lease a bike or ride one of the public bicycles to go to destinations like Riva, Marjan Hill, and Spinut. You may also take a cab or an Uber.

Many visitors travelling through Croatia prefer to hire a car as it offers comfort, flexibility, and convenience. Croatia not only has a great network of well-laid roads but the landscapes on the way are incredibly scenic as well, often with stunning ocean views. If you’re travelling in a large group, consider hiring a minivan. You can also do a one-way hire, which means that you can pick up your vehicle in one city – say Zagreb – and drop it off in another – like Split – before flying out. This would save you the hassle of having to drive it back.
