Hotels in Split
Split offers the perfect combination of beach holiday and city break. Here you can enjoy beautiful sun and sea a stone's throw from a lively city that completely swims with historic architecture and sights.
In the Emperor's footsteps
Split's history stretches back hundreds of years. Probably the most famous sight is the Diocletian's palace, which was completed in 305 AD. Roman Emperor Diocletian built the palace as a summer retreat, to which he planned to retire once he’d finished with his life as a regent. The palace remains today and is one of the most impressive and well-preserved Roman buildings in the world. With an area of approximately 30,000 square meters it takes up a large part of central Split. In this part of town you will find not only exciting archaeological sites but also bars, cafes, homes and more than a few hotels. Stroll around the alleys, soak up the atmosphere and explore the huge cellar of the palace where wine and olive oil was produced for years.
Relax in nature
Having familiarized yourself with the palace it might be nice to get away from the crowds for a while. Climb the steps towards the Marjan Hill on Split’s east side, where you can explore a lovely forest park with a majestic views over the sea and the city. Hit the Pilgrimage Split where locals go to eat picnics, exercise, play tennis, visit the little zoo and enjoy nature in the area they call the "lungs of the city".
Enjoy a break with sun, sea & sand
After all this activity it’s finally time to take a dip and bask under the warm Croatian sun. There are a number of beaches around Marjan, but if you want the true beach life you must go to Bačvice: a lovely sandy beach in central Split. The beach is a favourite among local residents and much of the city's night life is centred around it.
Shopping and atmospheric evenings
If you like to shop then it is the area around the Marmontova Street you’ll want. Here you will find everything you could ever wish for at reasonable prices – and if you want to cook your own food there is also a very nice fish market. The promenade has recently received a fresh face lift and here you can enjoy the atmosphere and the view together with all the happy locals as the sun sets.
