Dalmatian islands are best discovered starting from Split. Our charter base is located at Zapadna obala, the West Coast promenade. In other words, just a 10 minutes’ walk from the city center. It is the perfect place to start your cruise and hop from one Dalmatian island to the next – Vis, Hvar, Solta, Brac, and many in between are just waiting for you to discover them.
However, don’t dismiss Split itself that easily. It's well worth exploring. Split Croatia is both modern and traditional at the same time. That's why it is so special. The city evolved from the Diocletian's Palace built in the 4th century AD. The remnants and traces of the palace are now visible in between bars, cafés, restaurants, museums, galleries, and shops. Don’t miss the chance to visit St. Domnius (Duje’s) cathedral, which used to be Diocletian’s mausoleum, and climb up the tower to see the amazing view of Split.
Certainly, other fascinating sites to visit are the Temple of Jupiter, with the headless sphinx at the entrance, the Substructures (which might seem familiar if you watched Game of Thrones), the statue of Gregory of Nin. After that, you might find a couple of museums and galleries interesting, such as the Archeological Museum, the Ethnographic museum and the Ivan Meštrović Gallery. A cup of coffee at the Riva waterfront is a must.
One of the most relaxing and pleasant things to do in Split Croatia is to take a walk around Marjan park or rent a bike and cycle, since walking from one side to the other takes a few hours. You can also climb up the Marjan hill and admire the view of the city of Split on your left and the Dalmatian coastline in front of you. Marjan seaside is popular for the beaches, as well. Our favorite is the pebble Kašjuni beach. Bačvice is a sandy beach situated on the other side of the city and a place to play the local game of picigin.
Many festivals and events add to Split’s appeal. The most famous one is certainly the Ultra Europe Festival that takes place in mid-July. The electronic music festival has placed Split and Croatia on the music map of the world for the past few years. It attracts thousands of people to the city, and party lovers from every corner of the globe come to Split to enjoy excellent music. Before and after Ultra there are several clubs where good parties take place throughout the year, such as Vanilla, Zenta, Central Club, Fabrique Pub etc.
For non-fans of electronic music, maybe Split Summer is more to your liking. It's a cultural manifestation with the longest tradition, since 1954. Enjoy top opera, ballet, drama, and classical music performances and exhibitions in different locations throughout the city. Film festivals are also popular among the locals and visitors alike.
