Split has everything you want from a seaside holiday city, beautiful beaches with clear water nearby, lots of fabulous historic places to visit, delicious food and a driving night life.
You can reach Split from major cities in Europe by air or make it a stop on your car tour of Croatia, Bosnia & Montenegro.
Split has one of the most amassing roman buildings to survive to our days, Diocletian Palace build by the Roman emperor with the same name some 1700 years a go. Today the palace is part of the city who used his walls and rooms to expend creating a one of a kind city, something you will never see in other place.
I’ve got to split by car so was easy to visit other small towns and beaches near by and if your not on a small budget i suggest you rent a car for this trip since thees a lot to see nearby and you will not regretted. Parking downtown is difficult so chose a apartment or hotel with parking that is not very far from center if you mind walking.
For accommodation i chose a 2 rooms apartment from Booking some 15 min walk from center that cost me 70 Euro/ night in high season but there are also lots of hotels and hostels for any budget.
You will find in Split a lot of restaurants open late into the night everywhere in the center and on the promenade by the sea, a budget of 20-30 Euro / person is reasonable.
For party people there are plenty of bars and clubs all over the city where you can have fun all night.
After seeing more the 500 city in Europe i can with out hesitation that Split is one of my favorites when it comes to seaside cites and I cant wait to be back. Here are some pictures of my trip:
