A region to suit every taste
The region couldn’t be more beautiful: the history-steeped town of Split sits on a peninsula that stretches into the Adriatic Sea and is situated in the Croatian region of Dalmatia. If you are looking for a beach holiday, this is the right place for you, because Split is located directly at the sea. Beautiful beaches like the beach Bačvice promise pure relaxation. If you want to get up in the air, the best way to explore the mountainous hinterland is on a hiking tour or on a jeep or quad bike safari. And those who want to dive down into the depths will find a variety of diving centres. Split’s agreeable climate and mostly dry weather are the perfect prerequisites for any sort of holiday.
Croatia is the land of a thousand islands. The waters off its coasts are speckled with boats available for island hopping. Split is a suitable starting point for exploring the Croatian islands of the Adriatic Sea with your own boat or ferry. Recommended for unforgettable holidays in Split are excursions to the islands of Hvar and Brac. An excursion to the old town of Trogir and the island Čiovo should not be missed.
