    The tour was truly remarkable. There is so much history associated with palace with a wide variety of information and places of interest. The tour was fun and comprehensive. Lots of photography opportunities

    Walked around the park with a mix of trails and road. A great way to spend a few lazy hours on a relaxed walk. Options to walk up to the top of the hill and see the various churches and view points, or go down to the beaches and laze by the Adriatic. Some excellent views of Split and surrounds from many different angles.

    I am not a fan of G of T, but an enthusiast for the medieval fortresses, castles & citadels (for which the Croatian Coast is rather abundant). The fortress is situated roughly a 30 minute bus ride away from the center of Split. Klis Fortress was used in defense of Split against the Ottomans and was held by the Ottomans in 16th-17th centuries. If you want to explore the fortress, allow yourself 2-3 hours. The best way to reach Klis would be by Bus #22 from the HNK bus stop (across from Croatian National Theater). Tickets can be purchased from the booth at the bus stop itself.

    The highlights are views of Split, the sea and the surrounding countryside. Another interesting attraction is a church inside the fort. It was converted from the mosque when Venetians recaptured Klis Fortress from the Ottomans. The interior still retains the vestiges of Ottoman/Islamic influence. There is also a museum inside the fortress dedicated to its history.

    If you go in the summer months, expect the weather to be a lot hotter than in Split, since Klis is inland. Bring a lot of water and don't spare sun screen (with exception of the structures of the fort, there is not too much shade).

    If you have a limited time in Split, not a fan of G of T, or don't care for old forts, you can probably skip it. If you have a choice between Klis vs. Roman ruins at Solin, I would go with Solin. The whole G of T gives it a bit of a gimmicky vibe.

    Trip to Klis was still an amazing side-trip from Split and I do not regret visiting it.

    Loose yourself in the ambience and buzz of the local cafes, restaurants and bars that line this area that runs the length of split from the marina alongside the palace and the waterfront.

    A great place to wander and watch the world go by with its unique character 👌👍🏻

    Great activity for a rainy day. We got caught in torrential rain so came in here to keep dry. What a place! We laughed so much on our visit. It won’t take you too long to look around so bare that in mind when visiting.

    Beautiful palace, amazing scenery. Good value for money too and really recommend going up the bell tower to have a panoramic view of Split and the coastline.

    One of the best beaches in split. However, it can get very crowded during peak seasons which can dampen the experience. If its during low season, then this beach is a no brainer, if its during peak season then maybe consider one of the other options.

    A pretty good place if you’re a GOT fan and my partner found it interesting.

    It is however very small and we had seen it all pretty quickly, this coupled with the entry fee and I wouldn’t say it’s great value for money.

    Not a bad spot if you have the money to spend and want to look round, but not a must do if you’re on a budget.

    The 10th Century Rotation Bishop, quite an imposing bronze statue situated just outside the Golden Gate. Steeped in history and with a rather famous “big toe” (make sure and give it a rub) it’s well worth a visit and surrounded by a small park with an attractive water feature.

    Lots of colour, with a very vibrant atmosphere. Starts just outside the Silver Gate of the Diocletian Complex and extends even farther eastward. Dozens of kiosks selling flowers, veggies, fruits, honey, and meat. A fun place just to people watch.

    Trees down to the water from the forest park. Cafe. Quiet in October but still warm. Idyllic this time of year but can imagine it loses its charm to crowding in high summer.

    It all started when we noticed lots of Grafitti around Split, ‘1950’ I googled this and found out it was when Hadjuk Split was founded.
    As football fans we had to go and luckily there was a game against NK Lokomotiva on the Sunday before we left Split. We arrived at the stadium 90 minutes before although I’m sure 30-60 minutes would be sufficient enough to buy tickets from the ticket office. I think they were around 80kn each for the East stand. You need ID and also proof of vaccination. This is where an UBER driver told us to sit as this is with the home fans and where the Ultra fans go when they are too old to sit with the Ultras 😂 Hadjuk Split won the game 1-0 woooo and the fans did not disappoint. They sang for 90 minutes and I only wish English clubs took a leaf from their books! They should be proud. Beers are 20kn and popcorn available also. All in all the best thing we did whilst in Split!

    Perhaps the affectionate name tag of ‘Fruit Square’ refers to a bygone era. Not a hint of fruit - or any other type of food - in the square in December, January or February, but no matter.

    This is a gorgeous square and functions as a main conduit between the Riva and the inner part of the Old Town. Not at all difficult to find and, in fact, most tourists will very likely pass through it without having to have specific directions. The jewel in its crown is the Venetian Tower.

    So it has sand. And there the recommendation ends. The next bay towards split has ladders by which you can directly enter the sea. The ones further away from split have white pebbles that glow shades of bright blue through the surf. So really, though this is the most popular beach, I would walk right on past it unless you absolutely, positively must have sand above all other considerations.
