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).

Split and the surrounding areas are truly amazing! We highly recommend staying within the Diocletian Palace walls for a few days to really get the feel of Split. Parking can be a challenge but your contact where you are staying will have ideas. A trip to Hvar is worth the time. Visit as many islands as you can.
In Split you have a good starting point to both Trogir, as well as the nearby islands. The islands are so close to the coast that you can even reach two or three islands with a fast motorboat whitin a day. You have many possibilities to plan your route in this area.
Toni suggested several spots; all were great. For example, a small town where we docked and had lunch, a private cove with few other guests, and a more popular cove with beautiful water and a good vibe. Find your favorite beaches before leaving, or ask for a recommendation. Note: wind can determine where it is advisable to go, and also consider that some harbors have a docking fee, which might add slightly to your costs.
