Discover the Split Riviera for your holiday in Croatia
Split - The largest city in Dalmatia
The vibrant and bustling city of Split is the largest in the Dalmatia region, one of four historical districts spread throughout Croatia. Split enjoy a prime position on the Dalmatia coast with a beautiful mountain backdrop and is popular with locals and tourists alike for its atmospheric restaurants, bars and shops.
There is no doubt that the main attraction in Split is Diocletian's Palace. This ancient palace, built for the Roman emperor of the same name, takes up most of the waterfront of Split's old town. It is the largest archaeological site on the Adriatic coast and is the perfect place to visit for anyone who is looking to take in some history on their holiday.
As well as the historical sites that beg to be explored, there are also plenty of sandy beaches with crystal clear waters for you to enjoy. Bacvise beach can be reached in approximately 10 minutes on foot from the city centre, and the pebbled Trstenik beach is also very popular.
Along with the city of Split, the Riviera is also made up of lots of small yet charming villages and towns. These localities offer more peace and quiet but are still in close proximity to the main city. Podstrana is approximately 7km from Split and is made up of 5 small villages. Solin is also just 8km outside of Split and here is where the River Jadro meets the Adriatic sea. The river is surrouneded by lots of greenery and is a great place to go walking.
