Welcome to Split

The first inhabitant of Split was the Roman emperor Diocletian who started to build his palace in this friendly bay around 293 AD. After his abdication he withdrew to this luxurious palace of about 30 thousand square meters.

The following turbulent centuries made the palace into a town first populated by the citizens of the nearby Salona, fleeing before Avars and Slavs. The town overgrew the walls of the palace and its authorities kept changing - from Croatian kings in 10th century AD, Hungarian and Venetian administration, to French rulers and Austro-Hungarian monarchy.

Such past left its traces combined in the town everyday life. The city, however, went on remaining the centre of this part of the coast till our day. This mixture of historic layers brought some clumsiness and some things done too fast but today all that makes a part of its originality.

The big city today lives by the silent beats of history, lively spirit of the young and its particular Mediterranean charm.

Climate:
The climate in the Split Region is typical Mediterranean.
Average daily temperature in April is approx.  15 °C and nightly temperature approx. 8-10 °C

Time Difference

How to get to Split

By bus
The bus station of Split is located in the very centre of the city, right next to city harbour and railway station. There are regular bus lines to and from Munich and Trieste. Most other bus lines involve a change in Zagreb. There are many buses to and from Zagreb every day. The journey takes between 5 and 7 hours (depending on the line and carrier).  For more information, see the websites of the bus stations in Split and Zagreb.

On most intercity buses you pay a fee for luggage. This fee of about 1€ per piece of luggage is paid to the driver upon boarding.

By train
Split train station is right in the city centre, it is a few minutes walk from the port and from the old town. The train station is rather basic, because train travel is not much used to Split.

It is possible to travel by train to Split from elsewhere in Europe, although the majority of routes involve a change of trains at Zagreb. There are regular lines to and from Zagreb, which take 6-9 hours depending on the line. Timetables can be found from the Croatian Railways website.

By car
You can reach the city of Split from various directions:

  • From Zagreb by Highway A1 Zagreb-Split,
  • or using the road through the inland (Zagreb - Karlovac - National Park Plitvicka jezera- Knin - Sinj - Split)
  • traveling along the Adriatic coast from the north (Rijeka - Zadar - Šibenik - Split)

By plane
Split Airport is, after Zagreb Airport, the most important in Croatia. Scheduled services fly to major European cities, with summer charter flights from more. The airport is about 25 km west from Split, near the city of Trogir. For more information visit the Split airport website.
If leaving Split by plane, be careful to plan the journey to the airport in advance, as local buses don't run before 5 AM or after midnight.

Other airports: Zadar (160 km, regular bus service to Split)  Zagreb (400 km, regular train, bus and plane service to Split)

Getting to town from airport

Public Transport
At Split Airport there is a bus stop.  Lines No. 37 (Split – Trogir; Trogir – Split) and No. 38 (Split Airport – Kastel Stari – Split; Split – Kastel Stari – Split Airport).
Local buses run from the road outside the terminal - walk through the parking lot and go to the bus stop on the other side of the road.

Taxi
Taxis are available outside the terminal building at all times during airport operating hours.
A taxi to Split centre (ferry port or Diocletian's Palace) takes a bit over 30 min and costs about 270 kn (35 EUR) on the meter, though most drivers will agree on 220 (29 EUR) if asked in advance.
