Croatia's second largest city with a 1,700 year history, Split remains one of the Adriatic's most fascinating ports and is an important link to many of the nearby islands. It is home to a wealth of museums and other cultural assets, including one of the world's most impressive Roman monuments, the Diocletian's Palace, a dramatic UNESCO World Heritage Site. The fine standard of quality accommodation along with the reliable Dalmatian sunshine ensures a Split holiday will be a memorable experience.

Home to a wide range of flora and fauna, its series of tiered turquoise lakes, connected by gushing waterfalls and cascades in the forested heart of Croatia, make for an unforgettable setting for you to explore. Wooden walkways and bridges snake around the fringes of the lakes offering spectacular views in this UNESCO Heritage Site. Open all year round, you are not limited to visiting Plitvice in the summer season.
