My Vacation In Split

Throughout the winter, I dreamed of a beautiful city by the sea, which would make me forget the everyday life for a while. For my vacation I decided to go with my big dream of visiting the beautiful city of Split. This was a direct hit, because after this Split travel, it will always be for me a synonym for vacation and relaxation.

Split is the second largest city in Croatia after Zagreb and the largest in the Dalmatia region. This cozy harbor town on the Croatian Adriatic, with its 1,700-year-old history, offers a bunch of cultural and unique sights. As a cultural metropolis of this part of Croatia, you can go for walks through the old town of Split or over the peninsula of Mount Marjan, but you can also visit a lot of museums, collections, galleries, watch theatrical performances or enjoy the finest music. The highlight of Split, however, is the Diocletian’s Palace, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Diocletian Palace, Split, CroatiaI wanted to see this for a long time and after visiting it at the beginning of my stay, I can say there is a reason for it being the main attraction of the city. The palace covers the whole old town and shows different architectural styles from different eras and while admiring the ancient walls you can discover the history of Split. I also visited the basement vaults, where you can get an impression of how the Diocletian’s Palace looked in its beginning. After getting acquainted with the palace, the whole old town, I sat in the afternoon at the Peristyle, the former courtyard of the palace, and had a nice coffee in one of the many cafes.

Sveti Duje Cathedral, Split, CroatiaMy walk continued to the Cathedral Sveti Duje (Saint Domnius), which also belongs to the Diocletian’s Palace. This cathedral, built in the 4th century, is considered the oldest cathedral in the world. Inside you can admire paintings depicting the life of Christ. I got a wonderful view of the city of Split and the coast when I climbed the 57 meter high bell tower – I would recommend this to anyone visiting the city. By the way, you also have a great view from the mountain Marjan, where you can walk or jog wonderfully.

In the evenings, having enjoyed traditional Dalmatian dishes with fresh fish, seafood and delicious wine in one of the cozy family restaurants, I went for walks on the Riva. This is the lakeside promenade in the city center, right next to the old town. Here you can watch the skills of city musicians and street performers or have a coffee overlooking the palm trees and the sea. The Riva is the perfect place to absorb the vibrant and colorful atmosphere of the city.

Brac Island, Split, CroatiaSplit is a beautiful city with many parks, walking paths and beautiful beaches. Here I visited many museums and galleries. I liked most of all the gallery Mestrovic. Here you can see sculptures of the sculptor Ivan Mestrovic, who was one of the most important artists in Croatia. During my trip, I borrowed a sailboat from a Croatia yacht charter and sailed to the nearby islands. This was an unforgettable experience, as the islands of Brac, Vis and Lastovo are beautiful with their old stone houses, small fishing villages, beaches, bays and nice people.

My dream destination for a vacation has finally come true. I am looking forward to the next summer to rediscover the beautiful Croatian coast and experience new things. Who knows, maybe I’ll start my tour again from Split, because I already miss the feeling this city gave me this summer.

    Again, these critical comments are minor and can be easily corrected in a future edition of the book (which it richly deserves).
