What to expect when visiting 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 jump-off 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!

Our favourite places to stay in Split

Important: Tourism in Croatia is very seasonal. Much of the available accommodation in Croatia is fully booked in the summer, but many sites are closed in the winter months. 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.
