What to do in Split
Split is a stunning city in Croatia that’s perfect for travellers who want to experience the rich history and incredible scenery of Europe. From palaces to pristine beaches, you’ll enjoy a trip to a city known as “the most beautiful city in the world” and the “Mediterranean flower.”
Start your story in Split with a visit to Diocletian’s Palace. This historic centre of the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is the best preserved Roman palace in the world. You can admire its architecture and history as you wander Peristil Square. Remember to look out for the black Egyptian sphinxes too.
See the beautiful blend of Roman temples and Catholic churches when you stop by the Cathedral of St Domnius. Climb to the top of the belltower so you can get a panoramic view of Split, the nearby islands, and Marjan hill. Don’t forget to see the Temple of Jupiter next.
From the past to the present, head on over to Riva waterfront to observe the locals or grab a bite to eat in the cafes while watching the sunset. Catch a football game at Poljud Stadium. Spend time with masterpieces at the Ivan Mestrovic Gallery. Then enjoy shopping for fresh goods, clothes, and more at the Pazar Market.
If you’re looking for a little city break, find your oasis in Marjan hill. It’s a great spot for long walks, jogging, and bike rides. Reach the hill’s peak next and be rewarded with a gorgeous view of Split.
Spend your last day in Split and head to the beaches. You can enjoy sunbaking and swimming in Bacvice Beach, the popular beaches of Kastelet and Kasjuni, or the lovely pine forest beach of Bene.
