Discover an Affluent Heritage on a Holiday in Split
A holiday to Split wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Diocletian’s Palace. Built on the rugged coastline to house the first Roman Emperor to abdicate the throne in 305AD, Diocletian’s Palace is a beacon for all tourists as it proudly boasts the architectural brilliance of antiquity. Yet, because the city has at one time or another been under Roman, Venetian, Austrian, French, Italian and Yugoslav rule there is plenty for the discerning explorer to discover with flights to Croatia.
Tourists on a holiday in Split keen to delve further into this varied past will find the Cathedral of St Domnius on the eastern side, People’s Square on the western side and the Statue of Gregory of Nin, whose big toe on the left foot is golden because, as superstition goes, if you rub the toe it will bring you luck!
Beautiful Beaches to Enjoy on Holiday in Split
Arguably the busiest beach in Split is the Blue Flag awarded Bacvice Beach which is wide with narrow waters, perfect for everyone to cool off with a quick dip in the sea on a holiday in Split. Be quick though as it fills up quickly because of its prime location in front of the popular stretch of bars and restaurants that are ideal to sip cocktails or enjoy a couple of chilled beverages in the afternoon.
For a more relaxing and idyllic beach experience on a holiday in Split, a visit to Kasjuni Beach is worth the stroll. Set at the foot of Marjan Hill the pine-lined, rugged landscape is quiet and offers a salubrious stay.
