The historic city of Split on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast is the country’s second largest settlement and is loved by holidaymakers for its Mediterranean climate and for being a launch pad to stunning Adriatic islands. Holiday apartments in Split are proving increasingly popular with those intrigued by what one of the most up and coming cities has to offer increasing number of tourists. Whether it’s the historic charm of the Palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian or the buzz of Split’s lively nightlife, the city is a great spot for a long weekend break.
Experience Split like a local
The Riva harbour and waterfront areas of Split are the city’s most picturesque places to stretch your legs and the most iconic historic building is the Diocletian’s Palace which dates back to 305 AD and represents the architectural roots of the city. When looking for accommodation in Split, think about how close you want to be to the maze of alleyways in Split’s Old Town which disguises the city’s bustling nightlife by day but at night is a great place to party or just have a few drinks. Most popular bars include the basic but always busy Po Bota and the cocktail making Bifora, which occupies a hidden square close to Iza Lože street. To get your bearings and some brilliant views of the city and the sea climb to the top of Katedral Sveti Duje. From there you should be able to see the local’s favourite city beach at Bacvice. After a day well spent exploring Split’s history at the Archeological Museum or if you need to rest your legs after a climb up to Vidilica, a hillside terrace café offering stunning view of the city, islands and more, you can easily toast your achievements with a very affordable and tasty Dalmatian meal at Konoba Hvaranin, a popular restaurant said to dish up the best local gregada, a local traditional fish stew.
