Split Vacation Packages
On the Dalmatian coast, Split grew up around the palace of the Roman emperor Diocletian. It’s one of the biggest cities in Croatia, and home to some of the country’s most important heritage sites and cultural institutions. The city sits on the banks of the glistening Adriatic and is one of the prettiest in the region. It is one of Europe's up-and-coming tourist destinations.
History buffs and architecture fans should head to Diocletian’s Palace. It’s one of the best-preserved Roman palaces in Europe and was designated a World Heritage Site in 1979. Gaze at the ruins of its gates and courtyards or head down and explore the underground passageways. Be sure to visit the cathedral and bell tower of Saint Domnius, which was converted from the remains of Diocletian’s mausoleum. Climb the tower to get excellent views of the city and surrounding area.
Walk the streets of the Old Town to see architecture from throughout the ages. Make sure you stop in Narodni Trg (Peoples Square) to admire the old clock tower and grab a bite to eat. Explore the ancient churches and winding streets of Veli Varoš or stop by Prokurative to rest up in one of the city’s prettiest public spaces. No visit is complete without a stroll along one of the city's best assets, the stunning waterfront promenade, the Riva.
Brush up on Split’s history at the City Museum or take a look at items from Croatia’s fascinating past at the Archaeological Museum. There are countless ancient coins, old weapons and statues on display. For traditional costumes and other cultural artifacts, spend an hour or two at the Ethnographic Museum. Art lovers will want to check out the Gallery of Fine Art to see pieces by artists old and new. Make your way over to the Ivan Meštrović Gallery and admire the sculptures of one of Croatia’s finest 20th-Century artists.
