Another old Roman town that has become a major Croatian tourist attraction, yacht charter Split is considered by many to be the starting point to any exploration trip of the Dalmatian coast. Why is that? Because Split is one of the biggest, oldest and most prestigious cities this side of the Adriatic.
Its roots are equally famous as its Roman counterparts, being founded by the Roman emperor Diocletian who saw the beauty of this place and decided to retire here once the business in Rome got too tiring, and he did it in a very beautiful Palace which today has become a focal point of the city tour.
The Split Airport is the second largest and important in the country after the one in the capital of Zagreb. Located 25km from the city, and just 3km from another touristic town, Trogir, the airport sees a large number of tourists with the start of every warm season.
As mentioned, if you undertake a tour of the city, the first point of attraction should be the famous Diocletian Palace with its 4 monumental gates. It's worth visiting because it's one of the best preserved Roman palaces everywhere in the world. After you see this, you can continue with any of the city's other attractions such as St. Duje's Cathedral, Peristil Square, Jupiter's Temple, the two Egyptian Sphinxes, the promenade (Riva) or the Archaeological Museum.
Another thing that is a must when visiting yacht charter Split is taking a shopping trip for some local souvenirs. Some of the best places to do that are the Podrum underground shopping center which focuses on arts and crafts or the Enoteka Terra which focuses on wines and spirits. Along the streets of Marmontova you'll find high fashion boutiques at equally high prices.
The local cuisine relies heavily on fresh seas food like fish and shellfish, like many other Croatian cities along the coast. One of the local delicacies is salted anchovies in olive oil but also roasted lamb baked under an open fire on a baker's lid. And to wash it all down, some of the famous local Primosten wines.
At night, the promenade becomes the hot spot for entertainment and parties. In order to satisfy the needs of the party crowds, the municipality organizes a seemingly endless series of events like concerts, exhibitions, dance events, street theater and many, many other public displays. The biggest of them all is the Split summer festival which started way back in 1854 and which is constituted from a long series of events.
