Split is a beautiful city on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast in the Adriatic. Hotels in Split vary from large resorts to small boutiques, suiting both families and couples alike. Split has a pleasant Mediterranean climate, with temperatures upwards of 30°C in summer while dropping down to less than 10°C in the winter. If you want a summer getaway with sea, sand and culture, Split is a great choice. The city was built by a Roman emperor in the 4th century and hundreds of sprawling ruins remain, which are a major draw for visitors. Expect white stone walls, charming courtyards and a huge array of shops, restaurants and bars. Spend days on the beach and late afternoons exploring the Diocletian's Palace, Saint Domnius Cathedral and Old Jupiter's Temple. When the sun goes down, while away the evenings at Riva – the beachfront promenade. Split is also the ideal base if you’re looking to explore Croatia’s many island islands, like Hvar and Brac.
