The ultimate guide to explore Split in 48 hours!

Split’s waterfront, Riva, is the heart of the town, and the pride of every person from Split. The Seafront promenade is lined with cafes, bars, eateries and souvenir shops. I love Split. It is a typical Mediterranean town, vibrant, charming and fun. As the largest Dalmatian town, Split also offers to its visitors loads of things to do.


We stayed in Split for a couple of days and visited some of the islands. The interesting islands to visit for a day include Brac, Hvar, Solta and Drenik Veli. The most popular spot on the island is Uvala Krknjasi, popularly called Blue Lagoon due to its turquoise waters. You can visit these islands by ferry boat, on your own. Island hopping is fun and provides best swimming and snorkeling in the area. It is a must do if you are in Croatia.

Viator provides more than 300 day trips, island hopping trips, walking tours etc in Croatia and at a very reasonable rates.

Where to Stay:

One of your biggest travel expenses and time-consuming tasks is booking accommodation, and we all want to save time and hopefully some money when searching for deals online.

Whilst there are plenty of websites these days to help you search for accommodation, some are more trustworthy than others, and some are easier to navigate than others.


I’m sure you are already familiar with, they are my all time favourite with lot of different types of accommodation you can book on their website: Hotels, Apartments, Resorts,  Villas,  B&B and Guesthouses.

In my opinion, not only are they are the best hotel booking site, but the best accommodation website.

And if the above options aren’t enough for your style or budget, you can even book Lodges, chalets, luxury tents, campsites and more.

2. AirBnb

It is an online marketplace and hospitality service, enabling people to list or rent short-term lodging including vacation rentals, apartment rentals, homestays, hostel beds, or hotel rooms. 

Unforgettable trips start with Airbnb.

In a nutshell, primary reasons for me to visit Split:

  • Being a coastal Mediterranean city, the city springs great traditional culture as well while capturing modern influences as well.
  • Split was under the rule of many empires, including Roman and Austrian-Hungarian. It inevitably reflected on their culture, architecture and mentality.
  • The Old city of Split is one of the oldest in the world, and it is really authentic!
  • Feel like exploring a bit? Beautiful islands like Hvar, Brac, as well as others, are in close proximity.
  • Games of thrones was captured there 😉 So for all you fans out there, you yourself can walk the streets of Meereen and Braavos!

All these, plus the fact that the city is less touristy than Dubrovnik (for now) makes it a great destination for your next vacation!

    Beautiful photos! We are going to Split this year. Can you recommend a quiet part to stay in near the sea, not too far from the town at all where jogging might be possible? I have just started a poetry blog here on WordPress in case you have time to look? Have a good day, Sam 🙂

      Wow that sounds great!
      When we went to split we stayed in “Hotel Park Split”. This hotel was right next to sea and perfectly away from the crowd! You can check this place at as well.
