With all the increased air traffic to Split these days, access to the Dalmatian capital is better than ever, and with the significant upgrade in the city’s gourmet and tourist offer outside the peak sense, there has never been a better time to take a city break in Split. The Daily Telegraph thinks so too…
“Split, Croatia’s second city, is a revelation… a seafront gem that combines honeycombs of unique historical buildings with a cosmopolitan, palm-lined “Riva” waterfront and a glorious wooded peninsula (the “Marjan”), where you’ll find secluded beaches adrift with pine cones and feathered by olive groves. At the heart of the Old Town is a unique city-within-a-city, the fortifications of the former Roman palace built for the Emperor Diocletian.
“Its grid of majestic monuments is overlaid with bustling medieval alleyways and crammed with higgledy-piggledy shops and restaurants. Visit for the annual Summer Festival (July 14-August 14), when the palace’s magnificent courtyard – the “Peristyle” – is transformed into an open-air stage. Refreshing breezes from the Adriatic mean summer temperatures are seldom oppressive in Split. And if you do need to cool off, there’s a jolly town beach (Bacvice), and boat trips aplenty from the Riva to the neighbouring islands of Solta, Brac and Hvar.”
