tourist attraction, Split, Central Dalmatia

Experience 1700 year old UNESCO World heritage site.
Split is a city with a special state of mind. People say that what you can see in Split, you can’t see anywhere else on the planet. No matter what day of the week it is, the waterfront is full of coffee drinkers absorbing vitamin D and women who look like they stepped off the catwalk, wearing a display of most trendy sunglasses- it’s a Split thing! People do not care about celebrities who visit, they live a relaxed lifestyle never rushing anywhere, and enjoying what nature has provided in this beautiful city. As for the religion, the soccer team Hajduk is the largest deity, Poljud stadium is the main cathedral and members of Torcida are the most faithful believers.
There is much more to Split then this unique lifestyle. Split is also a city rich with history, Roman ruins, beautiful beaches, rich cuisine, and to a close vicinity of the most beautiful Dalmatian islands. If you get tired of the city hustle, you can go island hopping every day from Split.
Split hides a multitude of treasures: modern shops built into roman ruins, fascinating history and culture alongside with vibrant night life, great bars, cafés & restaurants – all mixed together.
Just wandering the cobbled streets of this remarkably well preserved city that maintained its old fashioned charm is an adventure on its own.

Diocletian’s Palace, one of the best preserved palaces of the Roman imperial period whose remains now form the historical centre of the city. People actually live and work inside the ancient edifice, so while it has its tourist aspect, it also feels very real and alive.

Not to be missed:

Split offer

St.Domnius Cathedral and bell tower which was originally the Emperor’s mausoleum.

The Peristyle of Diocletian’s Palace – Fantastic place to sit down on the steps, marvel at the architecture and imagine yourself during Diocletian’s time. Here you can bump into Roman warriors and even Emperor Diocletian himself.

Riva – Split’s promenade and the place to be.
The Riva really comes alive in the early evening when Split’s residents and visitors enjoy strolling up and down; enjoy the view of the boats in the harbour, and sipping drinks at many cafes and stands on the sea front.

Old town – Simply walk around the lanes and alleyways, little squares and court where the breath of history mingles with contemporary design and the attractive Dalmatian lifestyle.

Bačvice beach & picigin

Authentic game

Sandy beach located in the bay, 5 minutes from the ancient Diocletian’s Palace. Very popular game here is picigin: designed for playing in shallow water players maintain small ball in the air as long as they can. Look how the locals do and try it out!
