    Split is an awesome destination if you're looking for a good time in croatia! It's located directly at the sea and the harbour is beautiful! The city center is actually really historical with the "Docletian Palace" and what's left of it. There are pretty alleys everywhere and you can find a cute restaurant on every corner of the city! What I really liked was to stroll through the markets, that offer fresh food, croatian specialities, clothes and of course souvenirs. Anyway, Split is a beautiful city!

    Split was a day stop for our Norwegian Jade Cruise. Although I probably enjoyed Dubvovnik a little more (on a previous day stop), Gayle and I had a great time here and would happily visit again.

    Lived in Split for 5 months, had a great time! The people are really friendly and the city center was really happening! The only problem I had was that during the winter it rained a lot... I would suggest visiting in the summer- plus then you can enjoy the beaches!

    Really cool city. Amazingly old and distinct Cathedral. Roman Ruins. Beautiful. And after site seeing just go lay out on a beach or island hop. Snorkel. Sea kayak. Perfect holiday!

    Nice place for 2-3 days max. (if you don't have local connections), specially old Split and parks.
    Dubrovnik was a much more striking place to see!
    The islands around Split have much better beaches and waterfronts!
    My modest opinion...

    This was a fun city to visit and easy to walk around in. Split is a Mediterranean city on the eastern shores of the Adriatic Sea, centred around the ancient Roman Palace of the Emperor Diocletian and its bay and port. Very clean and friendly with nice eateries, especially along the port.

    I liked it for its activities, but Split was too noisy for me. I still remember one of ice-cream parlors where I ordered lemon ice cream and got rice :/

    Though it’s the second-largest city in Croatia, Split is best known for Diocletian’s Palace, the former residence of Roman Emperor Diocletian. The ruins are now a vibrant part of the old center, with locals living and working within the palace walls. It’s fun to explore all the nooks and crannies, which still bear plenty of Roman and medieval touches. Split is filled with lively bars and restaurants and fashionable shops – it’s a very enjoyable place to spend a few days.

    In the heart of Dalmatia, Split is a real working Croatian city. Come here and appreciate costal Croatian life, indulge in great shopping, cruise to beautiful islands, relax at a cafe, mix in with the locals and tour a palace. It is a small city, easily "seen" in a day, but it is worth it to stick around to discover more. Don't miss the huge market each day near the port!

    A very beautiful city in the summer and I would really warm to come here in the summer. There are many beautiful places to see and the city itself has beautiful views to behold from different slopes that in Split. you will not regret you to come here to Split and there are many good restaurants and cafes. and for the younger generation, there are many great night clubs and dance bars. I also recommend very warm a tourist resort called Omis. Omis is located just over 3 mil south from Split. You will themselves become completely paralyzed by getting right to Omis and you do not think it would be so beautiful that Omis is. Many warm greetings Fonzi

    Fabulous seaside town with great seafood, shopping and historical sites. Climb to the top of the cathedral for a fabulous view then reward yourself with a cocktail on the harbour

    Imagine Diocletian, stepping out onto his balcony and hanging directly over the Adriatic sea. His adviser Romius comes, "Sir, sir! The barbarians!"

    "Hush," says Diocletian without turning. I'm in my pensive part of the day. Romius backs away, dejected.

    And so Diocletian gazes and thinks, staring across the azure waters from his gleaming palace.

    "Damn. I have it good."

    Bottom line: I don't know what the rest of Split is like, but the palace was amazing and fun---wander through a few corridors and wind your way through history made into a tourist-mecca.

    It's worth it. Then head to an island and start really living like a Roman emperor.

    Split was an amazing city. I was fortunate to live there for 5 months. The people are very friendly and some fantastic restaurants. If you like hamburgers, order their version: chavapi. you wont regret it.

    Most amazing views of the Mediterranean Sea! Crystal clear water, friendly natives, and soft sandy beaches that play host to some fun night life at the beach-front restaurants. Definitely try the food. Incredible is the best descriptive term. Breakfast is a specialty so prepare yourself for hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit right off of the trees, and breads to top with delicious spreads. It is one of my favourite places in the world!

    Split may not be the first city everyone thinks of when they plan a trip to Croatia, but as the home of the Diocletian Palace and the gateway to the Dalmatian Coast (and the islands off it), Split is a real Eastern European gem that any traveler would be lucky to discover.

    Though the actual city may feel a bit dull and rundown (likely due to the communist influence on the city's modern architecture), it is a historically fascinating city with great nightlife and it makes a great home base for day trips into surrounding areas (Marjan Penninsula; Hvar, Korcula, etc; and Trogir).

    I recommend seeing this city first, if you're planning a tour of Croatia. Spend a little time and effort on it and the city will repay you ten-fold.

Description

Split, Croatia, is built around the site of Roman Emperor Diocletian's palace, still inhabited today, although transformed into a mess of houses and chapels. Merchants and travellers mix in the hectic, exciting bustle on the Adriatic sea whose jumbled history is accessible through the modern port, receiving ferries from Italy daily.
