Marjan Peninsula [Marjan]

Marjan Peninsula
When ready to escape the hustle and bustle of Croatia's second city, visitors can take a pleasant, ten-minute walk through Veli Varoš up to the wooded heights of the Marjan peninsula, a safe-haven of paved paths (suitable for walking or biking), fragrant forests and beaches.  An afternoon of sightseeing, swimming or walking should be started just like the locals would, with a drink at Café Vidilica, which overlooks the port. The peninsula is home to several points of interest, including the remains of a 16th-century Jewish cemetery, hermitages and chapels from the 13th and 14th centuries. Eventually, a set of steps leads up to Telegrin which, at 178m, is the highest point on the peninsula. The islands of Brač, Hvar and Šolta can be seen and, on particularly clear days, you can see as far as the island of Vis.

Marjan Peninsula Comments

  • Marjan hill is very nice place in Split! If you are in Split you must come to Marjan hill from the Riva. Very beauty you are going to hear millions cicadedes singing from the trees and you can see the Adriatic and some islands of Dalmatia. Is is really green oasis of Split. If you walk in Marjan hill you would be going to Galery of Ivan Mestrovic which is very nice!
