Its streets are an open book, its buildings tell of a long and fascinating past, in which civilizations and rulers have succeeded one another in time, leaving behind unique artistic and cultural artifacts. Split is primarily a city of art and its many attractions include the Diocletian Palace and the Golden Gate (Porta Aurea), while nearby the archaeological excavations of the Roman city of Salona and Baia Castle can be found. There are numerous museums and places of worship that should be visited, as well as theaters and arenas, , where major festivals and music festivals are hosted especially during the summer months; the city also offers a wide choice of restaurants and trattorias where typical Croatian cuisine can be discovered.
Split, the capital of Dalmatia, is the ideal destination for those who prefer a holiday of art and culture, but the city can also represent a starting point for those who love the sea and beaches: from Split you can easily reach the main seaside resorts of the Dalmatian coast (Zadar, Dubrovnik, the islands of Hvar, Brac and Solta). Set between the Adriatic and the mountains, the towns and villages on the coast offer visitors breathtaking landscapes, a mild and temperate climate and, above all, a transparent and crystal clear sea.
