HOLIDAYS IN SPLIT
Without hiding their pride, the people of Split will tell you that their city is 'the most beautiful one in the world and beyond' and they nicknamed it 'The Mediterranean Flower'. This eternally young city with around 200 thousands inhabitants has lived its urban rhythm for 1700 years.
Split was first settled when, at the end of the third century AD, the Roman Emperor Diocletian built his palace in this friendly bay. The monumental architecture of the city and a number of important individuals have formed a specific cosmopolitan character of the city occasionally intertwined with the rebellious spirit of its inhabitants.
This tourist, economic and sports region guards its green soul on Marjan Hill, where a forest park near the city offers a comfortable and quiet atmosphere and a walk far from the town noise. The rich offer for tourists as well as the unique cultural heritage and many cultural and tourist events make Split an ideal holiday destination throughout the year.
