Apart from being the second-largest city in the country and the largest city on our Adriatic coast, Split is also a city with a strong personality thanks to the specific temperament and mood of its inhabitants. They call it ‘the most beautiful, but also the craziest city in the world’.
Noisy, direct, self-sufficient, proud and temperamental, the people of Split will shock you at first, surprise you, but secondly, 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 rarely 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, 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 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.
