Split and its surroundings


The second largest city in the Republic of Croatia and the largest Croatian city on the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea, it is located between the Žrnovnica River in the east and the Jadra in the west. The city, which offers the shade of the Marjan forest on the western part of the peninsula, a 15-kilometer promenade by the sea and a Dalmatian song on the stone streets of the old town, is located in one of the sunniest parts of the central Mediterranean and is known for its climatic benefits, measurable through 2700 sunny hours a year.

The first inhabitant of Split was the Roman emperor Diocletian who started to build his palace in this friendly bay around 293 AD. After his abdication he withdrew to this luxurious palace of about 30 thousand square meters. This mixture of historic layers brought some clumsiness and some things done too fast but today all that makes a part of its originality. The big city today lives by the silent beats of history, lively spirit of the young and its particular Mediterranean charm.
