Split: The glittering city with its constellation of islands

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.

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!
