SPLIT Croatia, where is the best place to stay?


We would like to visit Split but want to feel like we are having a summer/beach holiday too.

We like having somewhere to visit, bit of culture and history but would also like time to relax on the beach.

Should we stay in Split and where is the best place? ie, close to beaches?

Or, should we stay in Podstrana?

Thanks very much

Being in Split will feel like being in a big city, so you should get out of there and get to a place with more of a beach feel....where depends on how far you want to go from Split...you could go as far as the Makarska Riviera, out to an island such as Brac, or stay close to the airport like Trogir.

The Radisson Blu is 20 minutes out of the center but with fabulous sea views, big pool, three separate beaches, a dock--a real resort in the city and four stars to boot. Stunning location. You dont need to go all the way out to Podstrana or to the islands. While Split is the second largest city here; 300,000 people, the Old Town is car free and the ambience is village like.

We live in an apartment within walking distance of the Old Town and never get a sense of "city"
