Things to do in Split

Explore the Diocletian Palace: How many other cities have at their heart a Roman palace that is also a World Heritage Site? The sprawling Diocletian's palace is not only one of the best-preserved Roman buildings in existence, it is a maze of delightful restaurants, bars, museums, galleries and ancient churches.

The military fortress and residence was built from gleaming white stone from the nearby island of Brac (the same material used to build The White House). No expense was spared. It covers 31,000 sq metres, contains 220 buildings within its boundaries and is currently home to around 3,000 people.

Walk the Palace's corridors and alleyways where Split's emperors once trod as you go about your shopping - stunning! Energetic souls will want to venture up the St Domnius Cathedral for breath-taking views of Split and the surrounding islands. In the evening Diocletian's Palace takes on an eerie glow, especially on moonlit nights when the marble stones shimmer and ancient Roman ruins loom out of the shadows, making it one of Croatia's most romantic midnight strolls.

Marjan: Located on the western fringe of the city is Marjan. A wooded hillside peninsula that offers utterly spectacular 360 degree views of Split and its neighbouring islands, Marjan is a must for any visitor. Locals and visitors love its walking, jogging and swimming opportunities. A range of cafes is also located on Marjan.

Split’s Museums: Split is host to a number of museums that are well worth a visit. The Ethnographic Museum of Split displays a wide range of artefacts throughout the history of the city, including pottery, traditional clothing, furniture and jewellery. It is conveniently located within the Old Town and is only around £2 to visit.

Other museums that should be visited include the City Museum of Split, Museum of Croatian Archaeological Monuments and the Gallery of Ivan Mestrovic. All the details of these museums, can be found here.

Excursions from Split

Hvar Island: Regularly voted as one of the top islands to visit in Europe, the fantastic. Hvar Town is the place to go, medieval walls surround the beautifully ornamented gothic palaces on the winding stone streets, while in the bay, luxury yachts dock near the stylish bars and cafes. Visit the Pakleni Islands, the archipelago just in front of the Hvar Town for some downtime in the sun. In the summer there’s up to four catamaran crossings per day making a day trip very easy, duration is one hour. Book your ticket in advance though! For more information on Hvar, click here.

Supetar, Brac: One of the largest and most beautiful of Croatia’s islands, Brac makes for a perfect day trip from Split. The island’s main town is Supetar, only a 50 minute ferry from Split, with departures up to 12 times a day, it’s very easily accessible. Supetar has an interesting Old Town as well as a number of excellent cafes and restaurants by the harbour. Sit, back and relax and unwind in the sun. For more information on Brac, click here.

Krka National Park: Covering 142 square metres, this is an area of outstanding natural beauty. It’s famous for its magnificent waterfalls, including the famous Skradinski Buk, a collection of 17 waterfalls that range in height of 45 metres. Unlike Plitvice National Park, you can swim here, an ideal way to cool off in the summer sun. If you haven’t a hire car, to get to Krka N.P from Split, take one of the regular buses to Sibenik (90 minutes), then take a local bus (15 minutes) to Skradin, a town where you enter the park (entrance fee payable). Alternatively there’s a wide range of organised excursions available.

Trogir: Another of Croatia’s UNESCO sites, Trogir is a very picturesque town not far from Split offering a rich history, plenty of culture and excellent food. The old town evolved within its medieval city walls, on a small island connected by bridges to both the mainland and the island of Ciovo. Trogir is very easy to get to from Split. There are regular coach services from the main bus station throughout the day and in summer there’s also a passenger ferry that takes around one hour. For more information on Trogir, click here.
