Split

This eternally young city of about 200,000 inhabitants living in urban rhythms for over 1700 years in the heart in Diocletian’s Palace that, near the old city, UNESCO has placed under its protection. The Cathedral of St. Duje (Sv. Dujam), the patron saint of Split, is located in the mausoleum of Emperor Diocletian. His sumptuous furnishings recall always the attention of the faithful and tourists. There are many cultural assets scattered around the city beyond the walls of Diocletian’s Palace (the Renaissance Prokurative Square, and then palaces, churches, museums …). Located in the warmest part of the northern Mediterranean coast, right in the heart of the Dalmatian coast, this tourist, economic and sports keeps its “green soul” on the hill Marjan, whose forest park, a short walk from the center, offers pleasant walks light years away from crowded cities. City among the most beautiful in the Adriatic, the Split Diocletian is achieved quietly, after a couple of stops to the beautiful towns of Primosten (the excellent Marina Kremik Rogoznica), and Trogir. After leaving to starboard the islands of Drvenik Mali and Veli and left the long Ciovo, Split appears immediately imposing and proud. City (270,000 inhabitants) with a long history and excellent sailors (numerous sailing clubs for more than 2,300 berths), has a historic center of vital and amazing beauty, gathered around the majestic palace of Diocletian and easily visited after leaving the boat one of the three marinas; the closer to the center is the ACI, located on the left of the old port. Navigating the wide gulf of Split is pleasant to the passage (10 miles away) between the islands of Solta and Brac, from which you open yet another channel Dalmatian, bordered on the South by long Hvar. Solta is solitary, Brac is imposing and stylish, Hvar is young, fun, cosmopolitan and beautiful with its historical (Hvar, Jelsa, Vrboska). On the south side of Brac is a must, but only in the spring to avoid excessive crowding, the Zlatni Rat, the beach “mobile”, close to the relaxing Bol.
