Top Split Tips - Your Insider Tips for Split

    It’s almost unfair how amazing the Croatia city of Split is, with sunny beaches, a long history of culture and palace ruins that the locals live and work in. So what to see while you’re there?

    We asked you over on our Facebook page for your top Split tips. Here's what you told us...




    Climb Marjan to look over the city

    Mirek Dudek says:

    Go up the Marjan hill for awesome views of the city and find yourself a nice small beach somewhere down the hill for a well deserved chill-out after.

    Thijs Haster says:

    Take a little walk up the hill for a great view of the city.



    See the view from the Cathedral of Saint Domnius, too

    Gokhan Paschan Pasaoglu says:

    Climb up to top of the belltower.






    Catch a game of picigin

    AnaMarija Adric says:

    Picigin.

    Mitchell West says:

    Make sure you go to the small beach not far from the city centre. The water is shallow for ages and they play this game which I believe is unique to the region. It involves a small ball, similar to a squash ball, locals hit it to each other trying to do the most extravagant, over-the-top dives to hit it back to their opponent. Great to watch.



    Discover the living Palace of Diocletian

    Felipe Telles says:

    Walk barefoot around Diocletian Palace!

    Thijs Haster says:

    The palace for sure!

    Mariana Grespan says:

    Old Town!

    Matea Vujevi? says:

    Watch Diocletian's praetorian guard shifts in Vestibul.



    See the ruins at Solin

    Aleira Gana says:

    Visiting nearby Solin (old Roman colony Salona).



    Go on a pub crawl

    Tamara Monaco says:

    Split pub crawl!

    Pedro Côdo says:

    Pub crawl!

    Eva McGowan says:

    Getting to know some locals, otherwise you'll never find that awesome Rakija bar!



    Savour some tasty ?evapi

    Thalita Braga Persson da Silva says:

    To eat Cevapi!



    Take the boat out to the islands

    Felipe Telles says:

    Definitely go to Hvar. Robinson's Beach!

    Ray Muir says:

    Getting a boat to Hvar.

    Mike Hill says:

    Get on a boat and go see Hvar.

    Michel Bjelanovic says:

    Can't go wrong with Hvar.

    Mark Dunne says:

    Boat to Hvar for couple of days.

    Nuno Relvas says:

    Marvel at the Ivan Meštrovi? Gallery

    Patricia Carballal says:

    Ivan Maestrovic Gallery, wonderful place!!








    Get the most out of your time in Split

    Justin Mingus says:

    Definitely do a walking tour of Diocletian's Palace. Go to the market outside the palace as well for cheap food, clothing, and random items. If you are active and into exercising you have to walk/hike up Marjan Hill, amazing views of the entire city and harbor. Finally, definitely take a trip out to the islands.

    Lidija Radacic says:

    Night swimming, rakia, rafting, and just chillin’ for afternoons at Riva.

    Dora Mišurac says:

    Visit the 14th century hermitage (house built into a cliff face) on top of Marjan hill. Shop for homemade olive oil (comes in non labelled plastic bottles), honey with walnuts or fresh fruit&veg at Split's daily farmer's market, Pazar. Sample the fresh seafood and treat yourself to a glass of wine at Paradox Wine and Cheese Bar. Peek into the old Roman vestibule behind Peristil square to hear a local a cappella group performing. Go clubbing at Bacvice beach clubs and finish off by skinny dipping at at dawn. Fall in love with a local!

    Grant Seuren says:

    The palace is nice for a visit. Best thing in Split wandering the small paths and discovering the multitude of cafes and restaurants - almost as plentiful as the shoe shops! Next best thing about Split is the gateway to the islands... get yourself on a boat!



    And that's not all... You can find even more great tips from our Facebook fans here and here. Hopefully these top tips will help you make to most of your visit to Split.
