Split is the second-largest city in Croatia and the capital of Dalmatia. 

Join us to experience the amazing beauty of a 1700 years old gem of Adriatic. Nothing more proves its beauty and its uniqueness then the fact that the whole old town has been on the World’s Heritage UNESCO list ever since 1979.

Our tour will take you through time, where you will discover the way the life in the palace was organized during the Middle Ages while wandering through the labyrinth of chambers and narrow streets just as the way they were back then and walk through the „Let me pass“ street - the narrowest street in Split. Walking to the Peristyle Square- the central square of the Palace, which has become the ideal theatre scenery owing to its unique beauty and unusual acoustics, you will be amazed by the Vestibule and the Temple of Jupiter.

The walk continues to the Cathedral of St Domnius- which is a complex of a church, formed from an Imperial Roman mausoleum, with a bell tower. It is consecrated at the turn of the 7th century AD, and is regarded as the oldest Catholic cathedral in the world that remains in use in its original structure, without near-complete renovation at a later date (though the bell tower dates from the 12th century). The view from the top of the tower will leave you breathless and you will feel as if you have the whole city on your hand. There is much more beauty to see than one can describe, such as the Silver and Iron gates, fruit square with the statue of Marko Marulić, famous Croatian writer, Prokurative – Republic Square that reminds of St. Mark's Square in Venice, marketplace Pazar, etc.

After visiting main sights in the town center and getting to know its history, head towards Marjan forest hill, where you can enjoy peace and tranquillity, and experience the spectacular view of Split. Also, see the former cemetery in the Sustipan Park or take a walk through the streets of Varoš.

For your own pleasure, there are few other things to visit - upon request only.

Sports enthusiasts can stay a little bit more with us and go to see Poljud - City Stadium, the most beautiful stadium in the region, built in 1979 and is the home to Hajduk Split soccer club which also has an old and rich history.

For art enthusiasts there are plenty of city museums and galleries that will definitely live up to your expectations.

Final touch would be walking to the sunset on the West coast through the Sports Walk of Fame and learn about all winners of Olympic medals from Split.
