What to expect from Split?

Split is a coastal town and transport hub in Central Croatia. Its strategic location on the eastern shore of the Adriatic Sea makes it a good jumpoff point when visiting nearby islands, such as Brac and Hvar.

A beautiful mix of old and new, Split is a great place to explore Croatia’s colourful history while also enjoying modern luxuries. Even if you’re just passing by after exploring Brac, we hope you can make a quick visit to the Old Town and Diocletian’s Palace. You can also climb the Bell Tower of St. Domnius for the best views!

Important: Tourism in Croatia is very seasonal. While many accommodations in Croatia shut down during the winter months, most of the accommodations get fully booked in the summer. With July and August being the peak season, rates can rise 3 times as high as compared the low season or shoulder months. We recommend booking your accommodation at least 1 month in advance to lock in better rates.
