Sunny capital

A pearl of Dalmatia region in southeastern Croatia, Split is an extremely popular resort city.
Split was build around the Diocletian Palace, a UNESCO world heritage location, for a Roman emperor that went by the name of Diocletian. Split is known to be very sunny because it has over 220 days of sun each year. This has earned it the nickname “The Mediterranean Flower” and many people come here for the ultimate beach experience.

Bring your family and your friends

Split is a great place to experience Croatia’s waters. Most beaches are long and sandy with ice cream vendors, juice bars and restaurants at your fingertips. Popular activities include snorkeling, diving and most of the beaches are geared towards families and water sports.
Split has tons of attractions worth seeing from museums to old ruins from Roman times, but what most stands out are the plentiful beaches of the city. It actually has the oldest cathedral on the planet called Saint Duje’s Cathedral, at almost 1700 years of age it is a beautiful combination of Roman and Catholic architecture. Also worth visiting is Archaeological Museum, the oldest museum in Croatia holding many items from the Roman times.
