Guide to Split

Blissful beaches, cool crowds

A pearl of the Dalmation Coast and the second-largest city in Croatia, Split is becoming a highly popular destination for luxury yacht charters. Its impressive architecture, trendy haunts and cultural beacons pull in thousands of visitors every year, but it is also equally renowned for its sapphire sea and picture-perfect beaches.

When arriving to Split by yacht, the city looks less like a thriving metropolis and more like a beachside oasis. Palm trees line the waterways, turquoise coves dot the shores and and flourishing green areas give the city a refreshing energy. 

Visitors can easily while away hours perusing the streets of Split. The city borrows inspiration from Venetian and Baroque themes, all underpinned by the signature Croatian architecture. A number of ancient sites were used as the backdrop for Game of Thrones; these include the fortress of Klis just outside the city and many of the city's elegant streets. 

The famous Diocletian’s Palace also enjoyed a star billing in Game of Thrones; namely the site’s basement played host to a den of dragons. Whether you’re a Game of Thrones fan or not, the UNESCO-listed building is well worth exploring while on a yacht charter vacation in the Mediterranean.  It dates back to the 4th century AD, and was originally built as a lavish estate for the Emperor. 

After a dose of culture, be sure to check out Split’s burgeoning creative side. The city is awash with prestigious art galleries and boutique shops peddling trend-setting bespoke goods. The city is also famous for its flourishing lavender fields, and you would be remiss not to bring back some heady lavender oil or sweet-scented cakes of soap after your trip to Split.

Within dawdling distance of Diocletian’s Palaces lies Bacivce Beach, a sandy strip where you can enjoy some down time before returning to your charter yacht to begin the next leg of your adventure.

If you are interested in incorporating Split into your yacht charter vacation, be sure to take a look at all Croatia luxury charter yachts.
