THE place to have seen (difficult to miss because in the center) but absolutely a highlight in Croatia. Every moment you discover a new (photographic) spot. Climb the cathedral tower for a nice view of the old town. Plan 3-4 hours to visit including some...More

We just saw the palace walking around. It is beautiful by day and illuminated at night. This place has so much energy and is the heart of the city center.

The main attraction in Split and very busy. It is however well worth the visit and simply stunning. It faces onto the harbours and several restaurants are built into it.

The palace is an open area and free. Go to the cellars which cost 42 kuna, very worthwhile. You access them from the promenade, just where the underground market is. Turn left towards the metal fence and tickets can be... More
