Second-largest of Croatia’s cities and largest in the Dalmatia region, Split is also one of the oldest cities in the region at more than 1,700 years old. The city’s roots lie in the foundation of Roman emperor Diocletian’s palace in what is today the heart of the city’s old town, but also in the earlier Ancient Greek colony of Aspalathos. Visitors arriving on cheap flights to Split will discover a city rich in history and culture, a warm and welcoming destination as ideal for sightseeing as it is for soaking up sun on the beach.

As well as its abundance of historic treasures, splendid beaches, and the outstanding natural beauty of the surrounding countryside, Split has also become popular for its nightlife. Much of this centres on the Bacvice entertainment complex on the waterfront or in the old town. The city is also an excellent base from which to reach nearby islands Hvar and Brac, noted for their lively club and bar scenes which peak during the summer months.

What is good to know if travelling to Split?

  • Diocletian’s Palace, built toward the end of the fourth century and beginning of the fifth century AD by Roman emperor Diocletian, is one of the region’s most important historic sites. It is the world’s most complete set of Roman palace ruins, and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Monument in 1979. Such is its iconic status that its image even features on Croatian banknotes. 
  • The Ivan Mestrovic Gallery is an art museum dedicated to the work of Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic and contains 192 of his sculptures, 583 drawings, four paintings, 291 architectural plans and two furniture sets. The museum also contains exhibits detailing the artist’s life and work, including items such as personal correspondences to friends and family, which allow visitors an intimate glimpse into the mind of the fascinating artist. 
  • Stari Pazar (or Green Market) is a large, bustling open-air street market located near the Silver Gate of Diocletian’s Palace. All manner of items are available here, from local produce and household items to clothes and souveneirs. 
  • Split Cathedral, also known as the Cathedral of St Domnius, lies within the grounds of Diocletian’s Palace and was originally the Roman emperor’s mausoleum. Over the centuries, it was further adapted toward its new role, with the Romanesque bell tower added in the 12th century. This tower offers great views of the city and is a prominent symbol of Split. 
  • Marjan, a hill on the coast in the south of Split, is a wonderful oasis of greenery located only a short walk from the historic centre of the city. Popular among joggers and hikers, this Mediterranean pine forest has been a place of relaxation and recreation since Roman times.
  • When is the best time to fly to Split?

    Peak Season:  The summer months of July and August are Split’s busiest in terms of tourism as this is when weather is warmest and driest.

The pre-peak months from April to June, as well as post-peak September and October are both good times to visit, as the weather may be almost as warm as it is in the peak season but peak crowding is yet to occur.
