Croatia is rapidly becoming a popular destination for tourists who wish to see more of Europe. Beyond the capital city of Zagreb, Split is also a great city to visit. The coastal city has a good mix of both ancient history as well as modern structures, so you’ll have plentiful to check out while you’re there. These hotels in Split will be great places to rest and rejuvenate during your time there.

When in Split, a must-see is Diocletian’s Palace. It’s a beautifully-preserved fourth-century complex that is both Diocletian’s retirement villa merged with a large former military camp. While it’s full of tidbits that will thrill the history geek in you, fans of Game of Thrones will also find this complex familiar, as several scenes were filmed there.

Otherwise, the historical part of Split is a large one that is best traversed on foot. Take time to explore the old city with its renaissance architecture flanked by shops and cafes. Of course, you can’t miss out on visiting the seaside. Not too far from the city is a stretch of beaches with fine sand, perfect to dig your toes into and spend the day at.
