Split is a vibrant port city, spectacularly wedged between the Adriatic Sea and Croatia’s coastal mountains. The largest city of the Dalmatian region, Split is filled with historical and modern scenery. The UNESCO World Heritage site of Diocletian’s Palace, with its 4th century Roman stone gateway, ancient arches and ornate statues is a must-visit for every traveler. The palace basement and the nearby Klis Fortress were also part of the film locations of the hugely popular Game of Thrones. The city’s Archeological Museum and a third century Roman temple of Jupiter are not to be missed either. The lovely Marjan hill, which towers over the city’s medieval neighborhood, offers panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. The locals love the great outdoors, so try catching the local football team in action while in town. The lively boardwalk of Riva, lined with bars and restaurants, offers an energetic nightlife. Gorge on freshly grilled sardines, seafood pasta and smoked prosciutto, chased by delicious local wines or craft beer.
