Split rivals many capitals when it comes to historic and cultural must-sees. With Diocletian’s Palace, Saint Domnius’ Cathedral, and a wealth of beautiful squares and buildings, its attractions can more than hold their own. Add in the glamour of the Riva waterfront and the breathtaking beauty of the Marjan Hills, and you’ve got a winning combination.

Perched on the Adriatic, Split boasts beautiful sunsets, exciting cuisine, great art and tons of history. The Split Gallery of Fine Arts, Archaeological Museum and the Mestrovic Gallery, showcasing the work of the country’s greatest sculptor, are among its cultural big-hitters, while various other museums add fun and interactivity – the Museum of the Senses certainly delivers on its promise.

With fragrant pine forests and botanical gardens, the expansive spaces of Marjan Forest Park are another great reason to visit, forming the ‘green lung’ of the city, while tours to the waterfalls of Krka are also justly popular. The Roman ruins of Diocletian’s Palace are perhaps Split’s best-known attraction, with guided walking tours of this and various other Split landmarks a great way to immerse yourself in its history. Look out too for Republic Square, site of regular cultural events, and Split’s main beach, Bacvice, where the famous local ball game, Picigin, is a popular pursuit (it takes place in the sea).

Within a 30-minute drive of Split are more pretty coastal stops, like Stobreč, Jesenice and Podstrana. Look out for the wooden ships at Jesenice, which can take you on a pleasurable journey, perhaps towards nearby Omiš or the island of Brač. If you make it to Omiš, just a little further, you’ll be in the adrenaline sports capital of the area, with a spectacular zip-wire across the River Cetina providing just one of the town’s unforgettable adventures.

Region

The city of Split, with its magnificent historical sites, scenic coastal vistas, and a welcoming local atmosphere, is a must-visit destination for travellers in search of the perfect balance of culture, relaxation, and adventure. Nestled along the captivating Dalmatian Coast, it’s a vibrant mix of modern life and ancient history, making it a thriving hub for both locals and tourists.

The heart of Split is the historic Diocletian's Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that stands as one of the best-preserved Roman monuments in the world. Built for the Roman Emperor Diocletian in the 4th century, this massive complex now forms the nucleus of the city. Within the palace walls, you'll discover a labyrinth of narrow streets, charming squares, and historic buildings. The Peristyle, an open-air courtyard, is a central gathering place, and both the Cathedral of Saint Domnius and the Temple of Jupiter showcase remarkable examples of ancient architecture. Strolling through the ancient streets, you'll come across quaint shops, lively cafes, and local markets.

The Riva promenade is the city's vibrant waterfront hub. Lined with cafes, restaurants, and shops, it's the perfect place to enjoy a leisurely stroll, sip a coffee, or dine while overlooking the stunning Adriatic Sea. The palm-lined promenade offers a lively atmosphere day and night, with street performers and events throughout the year.

Just a short walk from the from the centre of Split is Marjan Hill, a pristine nature park that offers a peaceful retreat from the bustling city streets. The park features lush greenery, jogging trails, and stunning viewpoints overlooking the city and the sea. It's an ideal place for hiking, picnicking, or simply enjoying the natural beauty of the Mediterranean.

The Split region offers a variety of beautiful beaches. Bacvice and Ovcice are two popular choices conveniently located near the city centre. The sandy shores are perfect for sunbathing, swimming, and trying your hand at the local beach sport, picigin. Exploring further along the coast, you'll find numerous rocky coves and pebble beaches, each with their own unique charm.

For adventure seekers, Split offers a wide array of outdoor activities and water sports. From kayaking and paddle-boarding to sailing and scuba diving, there's something for everyone who wants to experience the Adriatic up close. Split is a great base for taking boat trips to the nearby islands, where you can explore underwater caves and secluded beaches.

Croatian cuisine is known for its fresh, local ingredients and Mediterranean influence. You’ll be able to savour delicious seafood, grilled meats, and traditional recipes. To experience authentic Croatian flavours, visit the local konoba (taverns) that serve traditional dishes like pasticada (a slow-cooked beef stew), and peka (baked meat and vegetables). Pair your meal with local wines and olive oils for a complete gastronomic experience.

Split is a city of remarkable beauty and historical significance. Whether you're exploring ancient streets, soaking up the sun on pristine beaches, or indulging in delectable local cuisine, Split promises an unforgettable experience. Its blend of stunning natural landscapes, ancient history, and a welcoming Mediterranean lifestyle makes it a destination that offers something for every traveller.

    Last minute reservation and one of the best Villa I have ever been!

  • This is a perfect house for families and groups.

    on 07/05/2022

    We (10 adults + 3 children) had a very pleasant time at the villa. The entire interior as well as the very well equipped kitchen seemed to be new. The hosts have been enormously kind and fulfilled all of our wishes.

  • We had a great stay

    on 14/04/2022

    The location of this villa is excellent. It's about 15 minutes from Split and outside all the noise. It's located in a semi industrial area which means you'll have no complaints making noise into the night. Phenomenal hosts who will help you along every step of the way. All in all we are super pleased with our stay and Croatia is just amazing. Looking forward to coming again.

  • 5 stars!

    on 09/10/2021

    It was our first time in Croatia. The house is exactly as shown in the photos. Well-furnished, very clean, comfortable beds, good wifi, games room and washing machine, pool and gardens are very well maintained, Not to forget the vegetable garden, tennis court and playground. Ana & her family was super quick on communications, extremely helpful, well organised and friendly. There was really nothing to criticize. No doubt a five star recommendation, for groups of friends or families like us. We had a great time at Villa Marijeta. Many thanks to Ana and Josip for making our stay so memorable.

  • Absolutely stunning villa.

    on 14/09/2021

    This is exactly what we wanted, you never have to leave if you don’t want to! We had such a great time, the hosts are so helpful and are quick to respond to any questions. Fully recommend to anyone wanting somewhere nice to relax and have fun with friends/family. I would recommend to anyone booking this villa to hire a car or use Toni the taxi driver who is so friendly and happy to pick us up at all hours of the day!
