My wife and I spent two nights in Split toward the end of our Croatian vacation. We arrived via ferry from Hvar about 10 AM. The hotel is a quick 5 minute walk away from the ferry station... but with the many narrow streets around old town Split... we had a problem originally finding the exact location of the hotel. However... we were able to find a street vendor who was able to point us in the right direction.
We arrived at the hotel before check-in time... but were able to leave our bags behind so we could go out and venture around the city. First we grabbed a quick lunch along the Riva and decided to take in Diocletian's Palace. I highly recommend going through the palace... including the underground halls. We also ventured up the many steps of the clock tower to get amazing views of Split and the surrounding area.
After a day of exploring Split... we checked into our hotel. The service to us was friendly (giving us a good dinner suggestion) and the room was nice... although a bit small. It met all of our needs at a fair price of 200 Euro per night. The room was extremely clean and still very new. Easy to sleep... even though you are right in the center of Split. The breakfast buffet was in the lobby of the hotel just off the front desk in a small area. Not a huge selection as compared to some of the other hotels we stayed at in Croatia... but it was a good way to get the day started.
At night... we would get dinner at a nearby restaurant and then stop for some gelato for my wife. With gelato in hand... we would wander the Riva where enjoying the evening and doing some people watching seemed to be the activity of many people. It was also packed with people... and we always felt safe.
Our second day in Split we booked an excursion to Krka National Park. This was an amazing experience that lasted much of the day. The waterfalls were amazing and the walk around the park extremely beautiful and relaxing. Food at the park was okay... so don't expect anything special. Overall... this was one of the reasons we stayed in Split... to take a day trip to Krka NP.
The next day we left for our departure city... Dubrovnik. We took the bus... which was very reasonably priced (slips my mind how much exactly it cost). Overall... I am glad we took the time to spend a couple days in Split. Even though a bigger city... it has a lot to offer.
