“calm area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

It's a really nice place to walk around. The views are amazing! On the hill there is a little church and a little zoo. It's a calm area. The walk from split to marjan is around 20 min.

“If Diocletian's Palace is Split's heart, Marjan is its soul!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2011 via mobile

It's Marjan where Splicanis go to get ready for their day... or unwind after it.
At the end nearest the city (go to the top of Senjska, which comes off of the north end of the Riva, via trg Sperun) is a cafe/bar universally known as the videlica (the viewpoint). Here you can get a superb view over the city while downing a beer or a coffee - especially great as the sun sets and lights up the city with a rosy glow. It's like Uluru, but with buildings!
Further along the peninsula there are miles of paths to walk, jog, run, or cycle (rent from the north side entrance) along, which are especially great if you like plenty of elevation changes!
On the north side there are lots of little coves for swimming, while on the south side there are larger beaches where people go to see and be seen, especially at the end of the day.
At the end of the north side of Marjan is Bene, a small resort with a bar/restaurant and with tennis courts, swimming etc.
For those of us living in the old town, Marjan keeps us sane (ish).
