While there has never been any problem filling the beaches and towns of the Central Dalmatia in the summer months, tourism in the region during winter has been more of a challenge, and the potential of tourism out of the peak season has yet to be fully explored.
Things are changing, however, and the recent national Croatia 365 campaign has highlighted the rich diversity of Croatia as a 12-month destination. Leading the way is Split, which posted an impressive 49% increase in foreign tourists last month, and many of them came to experience the wonderful Advent in Split fair, which ran from early December until January 10.
A recent addition to Split life, the fair brings the riva to life every winter, with a variety of stalls, concerts and events, allowing people to simple traditional Dalmatian fare and catch up with new friends and old.
Missed this year’s event? This excellent video from the Split Tourist Board gives a great flavour of the atmosphere. What more do you need to plan your visit to Split for winter 2015?
