Holidays to Split (Croatia)
There is no better place to visit on a holiday to Croatia than the UNESCO World Heritage city of Split, where the diversity between ancient tradition and modern holiday fun creates a vibrant cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Bathed in a Mediterranean climate and washed in the warm waters of the Adriatic Sea, Split’s coastal line is one of the most picturesque along Croatia’s clutch of littoral towns. A holiday to Split – the Adriatic’s largest city - will offer plenty of opportunities to explore the area’s rich past whilst enjoying all the modern amenities of a Mediterranean resort.
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.
Enjoy a Vibrant Buzz of Entertainment on Holiday in Split
The main two hangouts for the party people and some evening beverages are inside Diocletian’s Palace walls and Bacvice. Bacvice has a bevy of bars to suit all moods whereas Diocletian’s Palace is a revolving door of hip bars and clubs that attract an eclectic clientele. The Bacvice area is also popular for restaurants where the Croatian cuisine is as diverse as its past. Influences and infusions from different cultures abound so be prepared to experiment in some exciting flavours.
With an enchanting blend of rich colours from the azure waters of the Adriatic and the soft gold sand on the beach against a backdrop of verdant greenery, a holiday in Baska Voda is Croatia’s answer to paradise.
