Split InformationSituated on the eastern shores of the Adriatic Sea, Split is a stunning city built around a sheltered bay, active port and the ancient Roman Palace of the Emperor Diocletian. The second largest city in Croatia, Split also extends into a greater area that includes many small seaside towns. The major link to numerous Adriatic islands and the stunning Apennine peninsula, Split has developed into a popular tourist destination thanks to its charm, beauty and pleasant climate. Boasting hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters, this university town has plenty to offer every visitor, whatever the time of year.
Must see attractions in SplitThe impressive front of the Cathedral of Saint Domnius should be your first port of call, especially since its bell tower is the city's main symbol. To learn more about the city’s past and origins, visit the main collection of the Archaeological Museum - the oldest museum in Croatia and home to over 150,000 artefacts - at Zrinsko-Frankopanska 25. The Museum of Croatian Archaeological Monuments, dedicated to documenting Croatian life in the Middle Ages, is also worth a peek. The Science Museum and Zoo is a popular choice for families, while the Maritime Museum houses an impressive collection of shipping memorabilia, proving an interesting alternative for adventurers, seafarers and inquisitive tourists alike.
Art lovers should visit the Gallery of Fine Arts at Kralja Tomislava 15, containing paintings and sculptures spanning from the 14th century through to modern day. There is also the Ivan Meštrovic Gallery, wholly dedicated to the work of the 20th century sculptor of that name. Housing sculpture, drawings, furniture and architectural design, the building itself is modeled on plans by Meštrovic himself. In addition, the gallery is positioned near Kaštelet-Crikvine, a restored chapel that contains a set of wooden wall panels carved by the same artist.
For night owls, there are plenty of bars, restaurants and clubs to keep you busy until the early hours; but for those seeking culture and relaxation, don’t worry – there’s an excellent live music scene and a full programme of events at the Croatian national theatre also.
Recommended scenic drives in SplitFor a stunning day out, collect your hire car at Split airport and take a meandering coastline drive to the city of Dubrovnik. Along the way, you’ll enjoy gorgeous harbourside views of both cities. Follow the impressive coastline dotted with tiny, picturesque towns, with stop offs in Makarska and Omis for lunch and a stretch of the legs. The scenery is particularly spectacular around the Makarska Riveria, boasting the Biokovo Mountain range on one side and the gorgeous blue Adriatic on the other.
Podgora is another beautiful place to stop and visit; it’s easy to recognize as you approach with its white WW2 memorial perched atop the hillside. For an alternative inland route that brings you to some impressive waterfalls and rapids, head inland to Krka National Park. The driving distance between Split and Krka is around 90km, so make sure you bring a picnic and your swimming costume and spend a day relaxing in and around the cool, refreshing waters.
