Split at a Glance

Split is Croatia's oceanside hub filled with Adriatic beaches, Roman ruins and a beachfront promenade.

Dioclentian's rambling palace is Split's claim to fame. Unlike most palaces, this one isn't a separate building, but an actual part of the city where Roman ruins mix with medieval and modern dwellings. Explore Split's city center on foot. Car traffic is very light and you can lose yourself in the quest for surprises as you wind through the narrow streets.

If you grow weary from pounding the cobblestones and peering up at buildings through shafts of sunlight, stop in at a cafe and join locals for a cup of coffee or tea. At lunch, sample fresh cuttlefish, seafood stews and specially cured ham. At night, watch the lights twinkle on the water, take a stroll along the sea or head for the clubs for some  pumping dance music.
