We visited in December during one of the coldest periods that most locals could remember in recent history. Even so it was spectacular to walk along the waterfront and the narrow walled passages inside the city. The old city architecture is amazing even as it has been blended with modern day updates. We were fortunate to witness what we believe... More

Loved old town of Split. Even though it was cold and rainy during our tour, it did not detour us from enjoying our guided walking tour. The contrast of historic architecture against more recent modern buildings makes it so charming. Lots of Roman ruins remain in this beautiful city.

I really felt good walking around Split old town. Had a guide for an hour or so, visited diocletian basements, peristile and cathedral. Strolled on my own afterwards, and really felt safe and everywhere you look you can spot an interesting building, or old house. thumbs up!

Getting around Split is easy, but obey all parking rules precisely or you will be towed and pay a lot to get your car back. Towing is so efficient there that it is, itself , an attraction necessary to be seen to be understood and even appreciated. My main point, however, is that Split is second to Dubrovnik in overall...

There are also reviews of the old palace ruins which are pretty much the same as old Split, with the possible exception of the older buildings outside the Castle ruins. In any case the entire area is well worth a stroll, with interesting finds around every corner where you can imagine life as it used to be. Highly recommeneded

I loved the Old Split, all the roman origins and buildings, including Diocletian mausoleum and Palace. The people are friendly, there is icecream everywhere and even traditional Croatian music singers. This a really nice place.
