Serving as the second largest city in Croatia, Split is perfect for those seeking a trip somewhere with historical charm and natural beauty. This seaside town is set along a beautiful sea of blue. Either spend the day on water or traversing the historical Roman palace.
Split is a well-known city in Europe but it remains one of the Adriatic’s most vibrant port cities. It’s perfectly sandwiched between mountains and sea and has been named a World Heritage Site. You’ll find that it’s impossible to get bored (or to leave) with day trips to islands and nearby parks, amazing nightlife and restaurants.
In this guide you’ll find a list of spots not to miss, budgeting tips, and highlights of the city from personal experience.
Accommodation – 40€ per person per night for a double room in an apartment/Airbnb booked in advance. Try to look for accommodation in the historical city center.
Food – SEAFOOD! You only need to budget around 20-50€ per day (or even less). Croatia has lots of cheap eating options, but do be sure to try the local staple of seafood and wine. Perfect combo for any beach getaway. <3
Transportation – Split is a small, easily navigable city. Therefore, no need to worry about transportation costs. If you are staying in the city you can easily reach anywhere by foot. Once you’re done visiting popular monuments in the historical city center we recommend taking a boat trip to some of the beautiful nearby islands, beaches, caves, blue lagoon and the waterfalls. If you haven’t noticed by now there is natural beauty all around!
Suggested daily budget – 50-100€ (Note: This is a suggested budget assuming you’re staying in an apartment and eating out moderately. This is inclusive of accommodation, food, transportation and entertainment costs).
