Split: Introduction

Surrounded by an impressive mountainous backdrop and vivid blue waters, Split is home to one of Europe’s most theatrical coastlines. Standing as one of the most developed areas of the Adriatic coast, it’s a popular tourist hot spot that retains its original charm amid the bustle of modern life. 

Both natural wildernesses and quaint villages can be found in this region, which makes it a great place to explore. A Split package holiday is a great option for history buffs, culture vultures, foodies and night owls.

Reasons to visit

A Split holiday is a popular choice with families and couple alike. Aside from the impressive climate, the culture and the coastline are also well worth a visit.

With so much to see and do, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Whether you spend time on the idyllic beaches, seek out the hidden coves, sample a diverse food scene or head out to join the vibrant nightlife, you’ll quickly understand why this area has become such a firm holiday favourite. Split is a vibrant and addictive city and one that also serves as the Adriatic’s major ferry port, making it an easy option for tourists who wish to explore further afield too.

Things to see and do

If your idea of a perfect getaway includes an equal mix of culture and relaxation, then Split is a great choice. The spectacular old town is a renowned historical site complete with a UNESCO-protected Roman palace and buildings custom-built by the Emperor Diocletian in AD305. Further inland you’ll stumble upon even more Roman relics including a captivating archaeological museum and a picturesque cathedral.

Other nearby attractions include the winding, perfectly polished stone streets, the lively markets, the pretty tree-lined promenades and an abundance of cute cafes and traditional tavernas – all of which serve taste-tantalising local Dalmatian cuisine.

When you tire of sightseeing, there are a number of enchanting sandy beaches sure to tickle your fancy, all of which sit on the edge of town. Come evening; take a trip to one of the many sophisticated bars, cocktail spots and waterfront clubs – it’s here that Split truly comes to life, making it an ideal holiday spot for anyone looking for an element of energetic nightlife.

Split is a great holiday option for families too as there’s always plenty going on. From a tour of Diocletian’s Palace to an exploration of the hidden coves by kayak, the kid’s certainly won’t be bored on a Split holiday.

Weather

Situated in the Mediterranean Basin, Split boasts a borderline humid subtropical climate.

The hot, dry summers and mild winters make it a great place to visit all year round. Overall, Split boasts over 2,600 hours of annual sunshine so if you’re planning a trip at the height of summer then remembering to pack sunscreen is essential.
