Welcome to Split Croatia travel guide! This is an itinerary through Split city, Dalmatia’s capital, my birthplace! I’m extremely exciting but at the same time proud of the the city of a thousand emotions.
There is a song saying “There is no city like Split” and it’s a truth. This city is my home town and without hiding their pride, the Splicani (name for locals) will tell you that their city is “the most beautiful one in the world and beyond”.
It’s no secret that a trip to Split is a memorable experience. It’s the ancient home of the Roman Emperor Diocletian’s palace, with dozens of outstanding attractions, set up in the beautiful Mediterranean environment.
In my beautiful city, the capital of Croatia’s Dalmatia region, you will find a unique mixture of Roman, medieval and Renaissance architecture, forming a spectacular Mediterranean feeling.
In the past, Split has always been just a ferry terminal, a place to catch a ferry to reach to one of the stunning Croatian islands: Hvar, Brac, Vis. Korcula, Lastovo and Solta.
But not anymore! It’s a city that deserves your attention for a day or two, or even a week. Just slow down and stop, look at the amazing sights, and when people ask you “Have you been in Split?” you will proudly answer “Yes, I’m glad I have”!
I am here to provide you with all information you need to help you feel like a local and to get the best value for the money whatever your budget is. I’ll do my best to help you have the best time possible when you get to Split.
