Travel Diary from Split
This summer me and little sister visited Split for the first time and we fell in love with this city. Seriously it turned out one of my favourite countries in Europe, people are so friendly, food is good and weather is amazing!
There are so many reasons you should visit Croatia, but one of the reasons is definitely because the country is so unique, the landscape is breathtaking!
Here's a few Split tips:
You should definitely stay Radisson Blu Split, check their website here.
We really liked the hotel, the rooms are clean and fresh, amazing service, staff is lovely and the hotel offers you so many things to do, as the beach club, SPA & wellness, restaurants and great lounges.
Make sure you eat at their restaurants, their Dalmatian cuisine features rich culinary tradition and the bounty of Mediterranean flavors. With a total of five on-site restaurants and bars at our hotel, you’ll have the perfect introduction. The breakfast is served at the restaurant The Fig Leaf, if you're looking for a great lunch option then you should eat their terrace of their cozy Caper Grill restaurant with sea views and fresh Mediterranean flavors, and watch the sunset from the cool confines of Mistral Beach Club, serving cocktails and light bites.
We went every single day to Minstral and it's one of my favourite summer memories - we loved their sunbeds & cabanas!
To the west of the hotel, stands the palace of the Roman emperor Diocletian, one of the most noted sights in Croatia. Now a UNESCO World Heritage site, this massive complex built at the beginning of the 4th century ranks as one of the most imposing Roman ruins. Stroll along its marbled streets to visit city-center shops and restaurants as well as the City Museum of Split. To the south, visitors can lounge on the serene pebble beach of the Adriatic shore or visit the island of Brač. To the north, history enthusiasts and Game of Thrones fans can tour Kils Fortress, a filming site that has been the scene of its own historical power struggles.
If you need an extra tip in Split city:
Lunch or dinner at ZOI (Michelin star!), walk in Old Town and a visit to Bacvice Beach (one of our favourite!)
After Split we went to Hvar island, but this I will tell you in another post.
