Why visit Split?
Because Split has 2,700 hours of sun a year, 15 kilometres of pristine beaches, Roman ruins and the liveliest nightlife on the Dalmatian coastline.
The marina is a particularly lively area, busy with restaurants, bars and a plethora of superyachts belonging to the rich and famous.
You probably didn’t know
There are no flies at the popular Peškarija Fish Market in the city centre because the smell of the nearby sulphur springs discourages their presence.
