Split is a great location for many reasons, whether you prefer sightseeing or nightlife – this place not only has both, but it also has the ability to mix them very well together. Due to the stunning beaches, restaurants and excursions – it’s also a great destination for family holidays or a relaxing gateway.
I have travelled to Split with three travel buddies. Due to our very tight schedule – we only had (less than) 48 hours to explore and here is what we got up to during our quick adventure in this beauty.

Stay in Style for Less
We stayed at an AirBnB due to the fact that there wes four of us and it worked out cheaper than a hostel. We even got to be quite picky as the prices were shockingly good! This was actually my first time using the app and I absolutely love it!
In fact, I loved is so much that there is a separate post coming soon specifically about AirBnB.
It didn’t take long to find a stunning apartment close to the beach, as we had a car we were able to stay slightly out of the centre which dropped the price bracket even more.

Explore the Local Beaches
Ahh the beaches.. a short walk from our apartment we had a beach with barely any people on it. It was so local, it felt like entering a ‘zero tourist’ area. The water, the pebbles, the views.. it was beautiful.
This is actually where I first ‘floated’ in the water, nope – I can’t swim. If anyone has a never ending patience, I am up for learning!
More beaches in Split: Bacvice beach, Kasjuni beach, Trstenik beach, Znjan beach and Bene beach.
If you have more time, you can look into visiting one of the islands close by which have incredible and less popular beaches.

Get Lost in the Old Town
I will be honest with you and admit that I didn’t know much about this place, also because this was a very last minute add on to our Eurotrip – I didn’t even get a chance to research it properly. Because of that I didn’t have any idea what to expect and the place just blew my mind.
The ‘Roman Palace’ is just something else – it’s not a museum, like most people would expect. No. It’s actually half of Splits old town. The sight of little shops, restaurants and alleyways is never ending and extremely beautiful – altogether covering 31,000 sq metres.
Wandering through the little cobbled streets was an unforgettable experience, it honestly made me feel like i have just stepped out of a time machine. I could wander around these streets all day long and never stop capturing it’s beauty. Unfortunately the guys thought we’ve had enough after what felt like way too soon and we decided to go for food.. oh you will love the next bit!

Taste the Exceptional Seafood..
Split is knows for it’s incredible seafood and after visiting the first restaurant – I could easily understand why that is.
I read somewhere about a small family run restaurant that does the best seafood in town and had to try it. After getting lost and getting hungrier minute by minute, we finally found what we were looking for and I cannot express how worth the wait was. If you are a fan of seafood and would like to enjoy it in an authentically prepared meal – this place is a must:
Try to reserve a table as it gets very busy 🙂
Looks like a beautiful break. I didn’t make it to split when in Croatia – now I’ll add it to the list for next time.
You really should, it’s absolutely stunning! 🙂 xx
