From the iconic terracotta rooftops to the sandy stone walls and bottle-green window shutters, Split’s like a paint palette splattered with colour. Swing by Narodni trg square for pastel perfection, see a show at the yellow Croatian National Theatre, and admire blossoming bougainvillea that splashes the town purple. It’s really a sight to behold.

Are you a Game of Thrones fan? Scenes from the hit US TV series were filmed right here in Split’s Old Town, within the dazzling Diocletian’s Palace. Dating all the way back to the 3rd century and holding the crown as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this incredible example of ancient architecture is preserved beyond belief!

Eating and drinking
Split’s harbour can mean only one thing – seafood! Tangles of shellfish spaghetti, scrummy squid and shrimp-studded risottos create plates destined for Instagram fame, while char-grilled meats and salad-packed pittas are second in command. If grab and go’s your style, pizza-by-the-slice shops promise cheese-covered triangles of goodness.

Shopping
There’s certainly something fishy going on down at the Peškarija, well, it is a fish market after all! On the other side of town next to the Diocletian Palace, you’ll find the Pazar (outdoor market), where pretty piles of rainbow fruit and veg are proudly presented on stall after stall.
