Split is the capital of Dalmatia and the second most populous city in Croatia, with 190,000 inhabitants. You usually arrives in the Croatian city by the harbor (because the bus station is located near the harbor), which offers a nice ride with palm trees and benches to enjoy the view.
From the waterfront, you enter through the Bronze Door inside the Diocletian Palace, one of the largest Roman ruins in the world (215 m long, 181 m wide, 220 buildings), built around 298 by the Roman Emperor Diocletian! It is a World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1979. What is impressive is that mostly the remains of the palace are an integral part of the city and host shops, restaurants and homes! Admire the courtyard and its columns, the mausoleum of the emperor and the cathedral St. Dominius. What a pleasure to stroll through the bustling streets of the small palace with its white marble columns, the laundry hanging from the windows, the ice cream shops …
Also climb on Mount Marjan for a breathtaking view of the city and touch the big toe of the Grgur Ninski Statue, it will bring you luck!
Where to stay in Split? At Hostel Booze & Snooze!
We recommend the Hostel Booze & Snooze, close to Diocletian’s Palace. The hostel has a bar where the atmosphere in the evening is great and the beer not very expensive, and it organizes a trip to the island of Brac twice a week!
Where to eat in Split?
We tested the Fife, on the waterfront It was nice and not very expensive. Take a risotto, it is very good! But the Black risotto has a rather repulsive appearance.
Address: TRUMBICEVA obala 11, open from 6am to midnight.
Where to party in Split?
- Intermezzo (Ribarska 3 on the waterfront): rather young clientele. A DJ with lounge music.
- Buvinina (bottom of the hotel Slavija): one of the most popular bars among locals. It is hard to make its way among the crowd in this bustling street to get a drink in the basement bar.
