The second largest city in Croatia, Split is the Capital of the Dalmatian region. Less influenced by mass tourism than many of the smaller coastal towns and cities, Split allows the visitor a glimpse into everyday Dalmatian life.
At the heart of this bustling modern city you can find the remains of Diocletian's Palace; this imposing Roman ruin still retains much of its glory and an enchanting old town has sprung up among the precinct's crumbling walls.
As the day moves towards evening the stunning Riva Promenade's palm-lined boulevard and fashionable bar scene provides a luxurious relaxation spot.
