Split is the biggest city in the region of Dalmatia, Croatia. The history of the city dates to the times of the Roman Emperor Diocletian who built his palace on a peninsula near the Roman city Salona. Along the centuries, more and more people started settling down around the palace looking for protection and it slowly turned into the city of Split which now extends over a large area along the bay with over 300,000 people.
What to see
Its rich history and very well preserved cultural and architectural heritage makes them one of the main cities to visit in the mediterranean. The Diocletian Palace and the entire old town have been declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1979. Walking through the city, you will find wonderful examples of local architecture like Peristyle, the Romanesque Church and Gothic Palace, Renaissance portals of the noblemen’s houses, Baroque facades as well as the Roman walls, shares and temples.
Split has an ideal climate, with 2,800 hours of sun each year, warm summers and mild winters. For this reason, it is also chosen as a sea and sun holiday destination by many tourists every year, becoming one of the most popular summer destination.
Get in and around
There are many ways to get there. You can arrive by plane to Split Airport which is, after Zagreb, the most important in Croatia. Shuttle buses or taxis are available to take you to the city. You may also arrive by ferry from Ancona and Pescara (Italy) or by Cruise ship as it is usually stop for certain cruise ship lines. If you wish to move around the city and take the opportunity to visit other parts of the city, the best option is to rent a vehicle from any of the available car rental companies at Split Airport. This will allow you to move freely although is is not very recomendable to use it during your stay in Split if you are staying in the city centre as it is partly pedestrianised. Also, bear in mind that car rental prices increase a lot in high season and companies are fully booked so it is recomendable to reserve in advance.
