The city was built up around the palace that belonged to the Emperor Diocletian during the third century. The Diocletian Palace is now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site and is an iconic site in the city. If you are visiting Split in the end of August don’t miss the music festival "Dioklecijanovi dani” in Peristyle. Spend time going to the Croatian National Theatre, Riva, or visiting the Ivan Mestrović Gallery, or enjoy a jazz-bar in the old house of Marko Marulić (father of Croatian literature). Strolling down the streets of Split, you will also come across a wide range of Croatian restaurants offering local gastronomy and delicious specialties such as pršut (local dyed ham), the legendary octopus salad, and crni rižot (traditional risotto with cuttlefish ink).
You will find many great spots to stop off at along the coast of Split, with several beautiful beaches, including the central beach of Bačvice. From Split you can charter a motorboat, a catamaran, or a sailboat to the islands of Brač and Hvar. There are many beautiful small coves or beaches such as Zlatni Rat to stop off and enjoy. If you want to cruise more to the south islands, Korčula is a must-see. Also the home of Marko Polo, this is a great island for active holidays lovers; Scuba diving, sailing, surfing, jet skiing, swimming.
Another interesting yachting destination is Vodice, which is becoming very popular among young tourists. Although it is just a small village, the rich offer of restaurants with authentic food and a spectacular local festival,Vodička fešta makes Vodice one of the top destinations of the area. For a more cultural experience, you should charter a yacht and drop anchor at Šibenik or Trogir.

Split is the second largest city in Croatia and the capital of Dalmatia. It is often a stopover for tourists who enjoy to charter a sailboat or a motorboat, and sail around the nearby idyllic islands. Split is the perfect starting point to sail towards the stunning islands just of the Dalmatian coast.
In Split, 385 privately owned boats are available for rental. See other boats in the area
Split is an really nice town only issue I had was to find a parking spot with an big car (over 2,1m high) and to fill up my boat with gas because the Gas station was blocked by many sail boats trying to stay in line and getting filled up first.... really messy situation! if you have a small boat you're allowed to pass the line to fill up at the small sides of the gas station- thats real good to know ahead
We visited Hvar, Pakleni islands, Blue cave, Komiza. I would reccomend Hvar as main destination. You have everything there, fun, night life, great food, beaches. Dont go to Blue cave, it is too long waiting in line for just few minutes staying in the cave. Komiza is beautiful small place.
Mid-Adriatic is perfect sailing area City of Split The story of Split is already 17 centuries old, dating to the time the Roman Emperor Diocletian decided to build his Palace right on the peninsula near the great Roman city Salona, where he wanted to spend the last years of his life. During these 1700 years the Palace slowly turned into a city, which to this day lures with its rich tradition, glorious history and beauty of its natural and cultural heritage. Diocletian Palace and the entire historical core of Split have been on the World Heritage UNESCO list ever since 1979, and not only for the extraordinary preservation of the Palace, but also because the Palace and its city (or the city and its Palace, if you like) continue to live a full life. All historical layers from the old Rome, middle ages till today are still visible and alive in this structure. A walk through the ancient city takes you through time, along the great examples of ancient architecture like Peristyle, the middle aged Romanesque Church and Gothic Palace, Renaissance portals of the noblemen’s houses, Baroque facades and modern architecture superbly merged in the rich heritage. Such stratification is mirrored in everyday life of Split. Local inhabitants sit in the same cafes, restaurants, shop in the same stores as tourists, giving them the impression that, by arriving to Split, they became a part of the city and its rhythm. The vegetable market and the fish market represent the centre of each family’s life in Split, just as the entire social life of this city of 200 thousand reflects on the Riva (waterfront), where every guest should endeavour to have his coffee alongside noisy, temperamental folk of Split. Split is much more than glorious architectural scenery. Split is also a venue for excellent gourmet and vine experiences, numerous cultural happenings like film and theatre festivals, exhibitions, excellent museums and concerts, a city which offers eclectic modes of entertainment starting with numerous clubs and bars, through street festivals to events such as Ultra Europe Festival visited each year by up to 100 thousand young people from around one hundred countries of the world. Split with its sport results is something only a handful of cities of similar size around the world can boast about as it is the home of a dozen Olympic medal winners as well as other sports medals. When you tire of the city bustle, there’s Marjan, hill symbol over the city, with its forest, jogging trails, mountain climbing and biking, recreational terrains, but also the ancient churches where the late citizens of Split sought spiritual peace. Also very unusual to find in a city the size of Split are the numerous beaches with extraordinarily clean sea, from the well known Bačvice to the stone secluded oases’ all around Marjan. After all that’s said are you at all surprised that citizens of Split have a saying "There is no place like Split”?
