Reputation of Split Accommodation in World Top 10


There is little doubt that the international reputation of Split as a destination is improving each year, as more and more people are spending time in the city before heading off to the islands or further down the coast.


The city has seen an explosive increase in overnight stays, as more tourists are choosing to spend time exploring what many locals believe is the most beautiful city in the world (and we would not disagree…). But does an increase in accommodation equate to quality and a satisfactory experience?


Apparently so, according to one of the world’s leading hotel comparison sites, which has recently released information of the destinations with the best ranking for reputation, based on more than 82 million traveller reviews. Split is nestled nice in 10th position in the world. With more than 700,000 hotels listed around the world from over 200 booking websites globally, inclusion in the top ten would indicate tourists are more than happy with their warm Dalmatian welcome in Split.

Exhibition Tourism: GAST 2014 Opens in Split


While Central Dalmatia may be best known for its beaches and pristine seas, conference and exhibition tourism plays an increasing more important role, and with EU entry and improved flight connections to Split, Central Dalmatia is an attractive choice for conference delegates, offering the combination of quality conference and exhibition facilities in a picturesque and relaxing environment.


One regular fixture on the Split exhibition scene is the international food and beverage fair GAST, which this year takes place for the 19th year in Znjan from March 5-9. Doors are open to the public from 09:30 – 20:00, and the admission charge is 25 kuna per person.


While plenty of business gets done within the hospitality industry, it si a fun event for the public, with plenty of local specialities to sample, as well as more interesting attractions from further afield. The most exotic attraction this year perhaps is Indonesia Day on Saturday March 8, where a full programme of Indonesian food, culture and dance will be on display. Learn more here.
