The vibrant city of Split is Croatia’s second largest city and is known for its beautiful buildings and crystal clear water. Split is full of life and has been named as being the perfect balance between modernity and ancient life.
The variety of beaches around Split each offer something unique for visitors. The many beaches with calm shallow water prove to be a popular choice for those with families. One of the most well-known family beaches, Znjan Beach, stretches 1 km long and provides water of the perfect shallowness for young children.
Pebbly beaches situated close to cocktail bars and famous for their nightlife under the stars, such as Bacvice Beach, are perfect for those wanting to have some fun. A few smaller, quieter beaches are populated by those wanting to relax and take some time away from the busyness of the city.
The bustling Old Town of Split comes alive with culture. From the old cobblestoned lanes to the beautiful architecture of the old buildings, the sights are often described as “breath-taking”. The Old Town is filled with a variety of cafes and restaurants, making it easy to find the popular traditional Croatian dish Black Squid Ink Risotto, a delicious must-try for the holiday makers who consider themselves to be food lovers. Right in the centre of the Old Town, visitors can gaze up at the Old Town Clock and feel almost as if they were standing in another time period.
Split provides a range of water-based activities for adventurers and those travelling with families. Considered one of the most popular adventures, the boat tour into the old caves is a highlight for many. Although most caves don’t allow swimming, the sight alone is something worth seeing. Another much-loved activity for tourists is sailing. With a choice of skippered or self-sailed boats, you’re able to take in the view of the island from the water during the day, and watch the sky turn bright orange while the sun sets.
From the stunning beaches to the life-filled town, the city of Split has an abundance of unique beauty to offer for all adventurists and holiday makers alike.
