Information about flights to Split
The city of Split in Croatia is one of the country's hidden gems nestled next to the Adriatic Sea. Split flights will take you to the city's airport, which is around 30 minutes from the centre by car or bus so it's nice and easy to get in and out.
Take advantage of the seaside location and visit one of the city's many famous beaches. Bacvice is one of their best, attracting tourists from all over Europe. This beach's shallow bay makes it perfect for locals playing the game Picgin, so don't be surprised if you see people diving around after a small ball, you might even want to join in.
Brela beach is a little less commercial, and well worth a visit. Although it's not the only hidden beach in Split it is one of the good ones. Here you'll find a small cove and quiet piece of sand by the sea. It's best to bring supplies along with you since this area isn't quite so built up, which makes it perfect for a picnic.
While you're at the water, head over to the port to take a look at the variety of boats in Split. You'll see almost everything ranging from cruise ships to sail boats and speed boats moored at the port.
In the city
There's no shortage of impressive Croatian sights to see in Split. One of the best regarded is Diocletian's Palace. As you enter these ruins you'll feel like you're being transported back in time. The ruins can be much more interesting if you find yourself a guide to tell you about their impressive history. The Cathedral and Bell Tower of Saint Domnius dominates the city centre, and a trip to the top will give you the best view of Split.
After a look around the city you'll find there are plenty of places to eat and drink. Bota Sare is located just by Bacvice beach, within the pavilion. There aren't many places better suited to serving up a fish dinner, and the interior looks especially fishy, with various sea-themed decorations hanging from the ceiling and walls.
If you're looking for something stylish and contemporary but with a traditional Croatian menu then you'll be best placed at Apetit. Here you can enter what looks like an old Croatian building to find a beautifully renovated restaurant. The menu at Apetit has something for everyone, so you'll be fine taking the kids along too.
