“Best meal in Split”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

There are a number of very highly rated restaurants on this street that tend to be difficult to get into in fact one of them recommended this place. We had the tuna and black risotto recommended by the waiter and it was outstanding, as was the service

“Marjan Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

From the city, facing the old town with the sea behind you, head left out of the city centre. You will pass a church and look out for a green sign on the side of a building which directs you to the park. Before getting to the park you will pass through a residential area with a few cafes. You will start to climb steps quite soon. At the top of the steps, just at the entrance of the park, you can turn left to a cafe with a view. There is also a viewing point. The view is nice enough here, and some people choose not to go any further up. If you want to continue, you can choose the path on the left edge of the park, or go back to the steps, which continue all the way to the top. There are multiple chances to change between the paved path and the steps. About three quarters of the way up, you will see a play area with interactive sculptures and other toys. There is also a zoo near to the play area, but I didn't go in there.
The view at the top is well worth the walk, with lots of photo opportunities. A nice way to spend a few hours in Split.

“Nice walk, obstructed views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We decided to spend a morning hiking up and around Marjan Hill. It was definitely a nice hike, but unfortunately many of the "overlook" areas with benches, had been overgrown with trees obstruction views of the beautiful Adriatic Sea below. Take a map, as it's easy to get off track and check out some of the beaches below the hill. They're much quieter and less populated than Bavice, though they are rocky.

“Great day out in Split”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Beautiful national park that provides great spots for swimming in the crystal clear sea. Best seen on bike - its a long walk - can be rented from the side of the road at the Marlinski put entracnce. Other way is to get a bus along the south side of the park - three good swimming spots.

“Worth climb for the view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We climbed up lots of steps to the top for the view. A rather shabby looking zoo at the top don't know if is open. There is a bar where we sat and had a drink where you see the view.
