Split ~ Croatia

 

Split (Italian: Spalato) - a city in the southwestern part of Croatia.
It is located in Dalmatia, on the Adriatic Sea. Only 27 km from Trogir, from which there is also public transport. We traveled from Poland by car for about 13 hours plus breaks. You can also come here by plane. Split is famous for its beautiful monuments such as Docletian's Palace. If you like places teeming with life, evening walks by the illuminated harbor and good food, this is the best place for you!

What is worth seeing:
Docletian's Palace has been included on the UNESCO list since 1979, and despite the past years, it has retained its best values. Once having a defensive or religious function, it is now visited by hundreds of tourists every year. Passing through the gate, we encounter two men dressed in old armor. In the old town you can also listen to concerts and fully immerse yourself in the atmosphere of this place.

The Grgur Ninski Monument in Split is a monument to a bishop who is famous for the parable that if you touch his big toe on his left foot, you will have good luck. It is surrounded by a beautiful park where local shopkeepers also exhibit their products.

Saint Dujama Cathedral - the cathedral tower is the hallmark of this city. The building has been preserved in almost perfect condition, it impresses with works of art and a stunning view from the top of the tower. The altars, decorated with scenes from Christian times, reveal history and fill us with beauty. There is also a treasury inside, where valuable exhibits are kept, such as reliquaries, liturgical vessels and vestments.

Riva – Split's seaside promenade is the best place to stop. Here you will find many restaurants where you can taste Dalmatian cuisine, listen to music or take a photo with the large red SPLIT sign among beautiful palm trees.

Šuma Marjan Park - beautiful views of the entire city? It's only from here!!  It's a bit uphill, but believe me, it's worth it, the views are amazing. At the top there are many paths among the trees and viewing terraces

you can take the best photos. The mountain is clearly visible from the port or promenade.

Split is also an ideal starting point for visiting numerous islands. Near the Riva promenade there is a port from which ships leave every day, you can also cross by car. Ticket prices are very favorable. We personally visited Rogac, Brac and Stari grad. Near Split there is also a town such as Omis or, as we mentioned, Trogir.

Bačvice Beach - closest to the center, in the southern part of the city. A sandy beach, full of people, where picigin football matches are played. There are many bars on the beach and you can also rent a scooter or a pedal boat.

 

INTERESTING FACT: As we are ice-cream lovers, we were most surprised that lavender-flavored ice-cream was available. I admit that they were very tasty and really smelled like freshly picked lavender.
