A spectacular setting
The coastline around Split is home to some unique, dramatic scenery. Rocky mountains and pine-clad hills tumble down towards crystal-clear waters. The Krka River runs through the vibrant lime greens and turquoises of the National Park. You might even spot brown trout, ospreys, golden eagles and bats.
Some of the best beaches in Croatia can be found along the region’s shores. The soft white shingle down the Makarska Riviera is a particularly sought-after stretch, and there are plenty of tucked-away coves waiting to be uncovered on the nearby islands. Make some time to totally chill out.
A Split city
Split gives you the perfect balance of dazzling historic treasures and cosmopolitan modern life. It’s Croatia’s second-largest city after Zagreb and it’s simply teeming with seafront restaurants, ancient alleyways, bustling markets and old sites. There’s both a small-town feel and echoes of bigger goings-on in various areas.
