and surely one of the most beautiful ones in Croatia!
Town Split is Croatia’s second-largest city with 1700 years-long history. This town has a super lively atmosphere during summer times and offers so many things to see and do from historic sea sighting like for example walk tours inside Diocletian’s Palace and Cellars (Unesco World Heritage site) to entertainment points like dozens of bars, restaurants, and shops. We recommend you to explore the Olt Town and its maze streets that lead to main square Peristil where you will also see a St. Duje’s Cathedral (the patron saint) and live music playing during the night. There are also numerous museums, galleries to visit and for nature lovers, you can head to city park-forest Marjan… For those looking for cool interesting stuff, we recommend you stopping by a statue of Grgur Ninski in city center whose golden big toe whom you must touch and make a wish.
Trogir is very well preserved town that offers various sites that are a mix of Renaissance, Baroque and Romanesque building with sweeping views from its bell tower. Parts of this town remained truly remain intact and are protected by UNESCO Cultural World Heritage site. This town almost as beautiful as Dubrovnik but without the crowds! You can enjoy in a leisurely stroll with a guide around picturesque historical town which shows great character. On summer nights everyone gravitates to the wide seaside promenade – Riva, lined with bars, cafes… Trogir has one advantage that Split doesn’t have, and that is the fact that is closer to the airport and also it makes a good alternative base to the big city and a relaxing place to spend the last day.
