It is life inside the 1.700-years-old walls of the Roman emperor Diocletian's palace that attracts tourists as a magnet.

Good flight connections with the European capitals make the second biggest Croatian city an adorable Mediterranean direction with characteristics of a megalopolis, but still created on standards of a quality life.
Nearby historical towns Trogir and Omis together with astonishing islands in front of Split, have the capital of Dalmatia as their center of life, making the city a modern megalopolis where the life is not overcrowded. It is rather dynamic, adapted to the Mediterranean way of life with a lot of relaxing moments.

A coffee at sunny seafront, a refreshing drink in a deep shadow of city walls of the palace protected by UNESCO or seafood specialties in some of traditional restaurants, represent only a small part of a choice tourists have in Split. Before than anything else, the city offers its everyday life.
Swimming at the over one century old city beach Bacvice would not be a surprise even in January. Local players of Picigin, an unique game in a shallow with a small tennis alike ball, would be keen to get you into a team...
