Hidden Gems of Split
Hidden Gems of Split
Coastal Croatian cities have one thing in common; they have a heavy Italian influence. You can tell this from their food, romance, their historic buildings and their culture. Split is a heritage site. It is intact and when you walk through this medieval city, you get the feeling of an old-setting movie. It is a city where you cannot get satisfaction staying indoors. Head to the Marjan Hills for hiking, cycling and sunbathing at the many beaches around the city.
The Bacvice Beach, which is located at the harbor at the center of the town, is the best place to sunbathe or to party when the summer sun shines. There is more to Split besides sunbathing, biking and hiking; you can sail the islands surrounding the city by ferry or boat through a local charter, you can fish, swim and a plethora of other activities.
This is one of the gems in Split. It is a serene spot to chill out in the afternoon after a long day sailing, fishing or biking. It is located at the Southwest part of the city’s harbor and has been in existence since 1962. It is a great blend of grass, sea and stone. It is classicist styled and adorned with a glamorous gloriet. The fun in Sustipan is in lying on the grass and watching the seas and the islands. Most tourists also play outdoor games like badminton and Frisbee.
Sailing to Islands from Split
There are lots of Islands surrounding Split that you can visit. You can get a boat through a local charter or join any of the local tours. The beauty of sailing to islands from Split is that you are never alone in the voyage. You can start with the Bisevo Island and see the famous Blue Cave.

Head to Ravnik Island where you explore the famous Green Cave. Visit the Pakleni Islands next and later enjoy the cultural heritage of Hvar, one of the most glorious harbors in the world. Later, you can enjoy Zinfadel wine with the friendly local people.
Varos Palace, Radunica and Salona
Varos Palace gives visitors a feel of the medieval Split. For the longest time in the history of Split, the area has been inhabited by the lower classes of people but the buildings are reflective of the high classes from the medieval times. There are no tall buildings or any monumental edifices but long narrow streets. Radunica is a populist suburb mostly flooded with immigrants from other parts of Croatia. It is more or less like Varos. The Days of Radunica party is the greatest attraction. You can walk the streets and the hidden alleyways of the town. If you thirst to see ancient buildings, then Salona is the place to be.
Here, you see preserved Roman ruins of a town that was first inhabited by Ilyirs. The town has the northern part which harbors the museum and the southern part which has the old Salona city.

For us the experience of Korcula is like having a tiny slice of Croatia with all of its ... Continue reading
