This is one of the best preserved old towns I have seen in Europe. Crowded, narrow streets, vibrant and a buzz with people and tourists from around the world, yet, maintains a sense of peace and beauty. A must see historical location.

Split is a nice and small city at the Adriatic Coast in Croatia. Despite of its coastal beauties, its historic town is also worth to visit. You can easily see the old city walls and old street network in the old town. There is a...More

The model of Old Split gives you a good idea what is to be expected here - and what once was. The mausaleum (now cathedral), the Peristyle, cardo anbd decumanus... All displayed in a beautifully clear way

Great for strolling around. Lots to see! Try to go away from the touristic places (markets), as there are so many nice squares, buildings etc. During the day, but also during the evening with all the lights very nice to stroll around.

A fabulous place to visit, day or night. It has so much history, through every ancient era, it is really valuable to go on a walking tour, either with a guide or with a good travel book/website directions

Situated next to the sea, one can still see the old fortress surrounding the Old Split. Within the walls, visitors can witness the century old histories. It was helpful to have a tour guide explaining the old structures and their original purposes.

Nikki, we had a kitchen in our appartment and only ate once. We were located just to the south of the market area just outside the old city. There are a couple of supermarkets in this area and things like prepared lasagne... More
