Split is a big sprawling city and the outer urban sprawl is not very attractive. That said, we absolutely loved the Old Town and Spilt as a base for visiting the nearby islands.

So often, when on a trip, when shopping for something specifically made in the place you are visiting...it is not available. Everything is from China, Indonesia, Taiwan, etc. It is always of inferior craftsmanship. There is a market when entering one of the gates into the palace that has a gauntlet of stores that have items like that. Not really... More

Such a wonderful area with beautiful views. We had a guided tour and really enjoyed this whole area. Take your camera & wear comfortable shoes - lots of walking on cobblestones.
