Where to Stay
Split is the largest Dalmatian city and a major transportation hub with a huge port which sends ferries out to the Dalmatian islands and beyond. Although Split is one of the largest cities in Croatia, the centre itself is remarkably compact. An apartment in the centre of the city will mean that all attractions can easily be visited on foot without needing to take public transport. Despite the ancient centre having a holiday town feel, Split actually covers a much larger area and staying on the outskirts or in one of the smaller towns scattered down the coast also has its advantages, one of the main ones being quieter beaches - those within walking distance of the town, such as Bačvice, can get extremely busy at popular times of the week. The Dalmatian coast is one of the most beautiful in Europe, so exploring outside the city is a worthwhile exercise.
