Split rests on the cerulean waters of the Adriatic Sea. Here, within the still-inhabited Roman Ruins of Diocletian’s Palace, you’ll find bell tower views from the Cathedral of St. Domnius and many bustling labyrinthine passageways overflowing with lively music and great food. For a swim or an afternoon spent lounging beneath the shade of an umbrella, go to Bacvice Beach.

    The Ivan Mestrovic Gallery houses the work of one of Croatia’s most beloved artists. It's also excellent for a leisurely stroll before tackling a hike up nearby Marjan Hill.
