Split (‘Spalato’ in Italian) is the largest Croatian city on the Adriatic coast and a major transport hub. With a massive port sending ferries out to the Dalmatian islands and beyond, Split is a nearly obligatory stop on a Dalmatian visit.
The remarkable Diocletian’s Palace (a World Heritage site) makes a visit to the city more than worthwhile. In the center of town, within the ancient walls of Diocletian’s Palace, rises the majestic cathedral surrounded by a tangle of marble streets containing shops and businesses. The entire western end of town is a vast, wooded mountain park with beaches below and pathways above. A refurbished harbourside promenade lined with cafés makes for a pleasant stroll, and the high coastal mountains set against the blue Adriatic provide a striking frame.
One-way journey: approx. 1h20.
