Split is the second largest city in Croatia. It is full of history and culture it is a very popular tourist destination. Here is a list of what to do in Split.
Visit the Old Town
The old town is a UNESCO world heritage site
Wander through Diocletian’s Palace in the Old Town
Some of game of thrones was filmed here and they have plenty of walking tours where you can out more about this!
Explore the Markets
Selling a variety of souvenirs and food. Croatia is one of the largest producers of lavender so be sure to pick up a lavender gift or try out the lavender ice cream.
Go to the beach
The beautiful Bacvice beach is the closest to the city centre.
Day trip to Krka National Park
I did a day trip with Gecko tours, the trip started at 8 in the morning and took about 1 hour to get there in a mini bus. It’s a good idea to get to the waterfalls early as it gets very busy, making it hard to cross the bridge and this is the best area to take photos. If you go swimming it is a good idea to wear wet shoes as there’s lots of rocks to climb over. The national park itself is huge, there’s a lot to see and do, we went for a walk around the park and to some small museums. I’d highly recommend visiting as the waterfalls are stunning!
Split is a great destination for island hopping. I got a ferry Split to Hvar it only takes 1.5 hours. You can book tickets at the pier in Split with Jadrolinija. Some other options would be to get a ferry to Vis, Brac or Solta.
Relax with food and drink by the seafront
There’s a great selection of restaurants and the seafront is the perfect area to grab a bite to eat whilst admiring the views.
Enjoy the night life
Split has a great night life with many different bars. I went on the tower pub crawl you get to drink as much as you want for two hours.Theres also free pizza and beer pong and after the two hours drinking you get taken to a massive club.
