Roman ancestry can be seen across the city including walls, temples and squares, making it a compelling area for the sun lovers and the history buffs. The city is an incredibly relaxing place to be all year round with wonderful hot weather in the summer and very mild winters even in December and January. The rich and famous mingle with the locals here thanks to the stunning scenery, great prices and range of activities on offer.

Important things to note

As most choose to explore the city centre of Split by foot, drivers should be constantly aware of pedestrians and understand that many of the roads are not designed for modern cars.
There are high chances of snow in the winter months despite the warmer weather, and when snow does strike the road systems often cease up due to the unexpected nature of the weather.
Parking can be difficult especially in the city centre due to the small size of the roads. It is essential to leave a metre of space between the car and the wall when parking for pedestrians or the car will be towed.
