Split

What to see in Split

share

Consisting of an imperial Roman palace that was taken over by the plebs and turned into a thronging city, central Split is an attraction in itself. There’s no single must-see attraction here: it’s really a question of taking time to stroll the palace’s narrow, tunnel-like streets, where Roman, medieval and Renaissance buildings jostle together to form a unique urban jumble. And you shouldn’t just restrict your wanderings to the city centre: residential neighbourhoods such as Veli Varoš, Lučac and Manuš are filled with the kind of picturesque alleys and stone houses that are so typical of traditional Dalmatian towns. Rising above the city to the west, Marjan hill presents an easily accessible expanse of woodland park, with some fine views back towards the centre.
