Apart from being the second -argest city in the country and the largest city on the Adriatic coast, Split is a destination that has a personality and which, I think I can freely say, is its brand thanks to the specific mentality of Split men and women. They call it ‘the most beautiful city in the world’, but also ‘the craziest’.
Noisy, direct, self-sufficient, proud and temperamental, the people of Split will shock, surprise, maybe even insult you at first, but on the second, when you understand the ‘rules of the game’ it will become clear that Split’s state of mind has nothing to do with you. This city is seldom permeated and firmly connected with its people. You can’t help but love Split.
As a typical maritime city and port, it was a place where different cultures and people intertwined for thousands of years, and this, let’s call it, tradition continues today through tourism. Once sailors and merchants, today visitors, they intertwine with the locals through the narrow streets of the historic part of the city, revealing its secrets and stories from the past.
The city of Split is the seat of the Split-Dalmatia County divided into 9 cities on the mainland and the islands of the Split waters:
OMIS, KAŠTELA, MAKARSKA, IMOTSKI, SINJ, SOLIN, TRILJ, TROGIR, VRGORAC,
and the islands of BRAČ, HVAR, ŠOLTA, VELI AND MALI DRVENIK and VIS and smaller islands that surround them.
LOCATION: Central Dalmatia, a peninsula surrounded by mountains, Mosor and Kozjak and a hill, the park- forest of Marjan and the islands of Brac, Solta and Ciovo.
