Split, Croatia’s second-largest city, is Mid-Dalmatia’s most important settlement. The cultural and tourist centre of the region, its port is also Croatia’s busiest, second only to Rijeka. Its location, climate and unique cultural heritage, hold a strong attraction for tourists.
Split’s most important monument is Diocletian’s Palace, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The walls of the Palace embrace Split’s historic centre.
Also outstanding amongst Split’s attractions is the 13th century cathedral; from its six-storey bell-tower one can enjoy a superb panorama.
Split provides a first-class base from which to explore the beauty spots and places of interest along the neighbouring Adriatic coast; it is also the departure point for the ferry services to the nearby South-Dalmatian islands.
