Flights to Split in Croatia
Split is the up and coming city in Croatia. Split is a beautiful coastal city in the heart of the Dalmatia region. It has a wealth of Venetian and Byzantine architecture and beautiful sea views. The centre of Split is recognised by UNESCO as a world heritage site. Thanks to this rich history, Split is home to the Museum of Croatian Archaeological Monuments and the Ethnographical Museum. The city dates back to at least 305 AD with the construction of the magnificent Diocletian's Palace, but may have been first settled as early as the 4th century BC. Many locations in the Diocletian's Palace were used in the filming of the hit TV series Game of Thrones. Split is the ideal gateway city for exploring the Adriatic Sea, with buses and trains connecting it to the rest of the Dalmatian coast. Frequent ferries link Split to many beautiful islands in the Adriatic, including Brac, Hvar and Šolta. During the summer season, ferries travel across the Adriatic to Italian cities such as Pescara. Split has a pleasant Mediterranean climate, with temperatures in summer reaching an average high of 29°C. If you've overdosed on culture, Split has many sandy beaches on which you can relax and sunbathe. If you take a trip to Bacvice, look out for locals playing Picigin, a unique traditional version of water polo played with a small rubber ball.
