Split
Split is the second-largest urban centre in Croatia. The city is situated on the shores of the Mediterranean, more specifically the eastern Adriatic Sea.

Split was founded when Diocletian built his retirement home here in AD 295. Born in nearby Salona, this able soldier went on to rule the Roman Empire for two decades. When the palace was complete, he resigned and withdrew to his native Dalmatia where he spent his final years. When tribes of Avars and Slavs rampaged through the region, the people of Salona took refuge within the abandoned palace, turning it into a town in its own right. By the 11th century, the settlement had expanded beyond the ancient walls.

Split has a Mediterranean climate: hot, dry summers and warm, wet winters. Split is one of the sunniest places in Europe.

Within the palace is Split's Town Museum that recounts the history of Split in a series of drawings, coats of arms, weapons, furniture, coins and documents. Another excellent attraction is Split's Archaeological Museum which contains fascinating artefacts from the Roman and early Christian period. Most interesting are the reliefs based on Illyrian mythical figures.

Split's daily market is a sight worth seeing, whether or not you want to buy anything. Just steps from the ferry wharf and the bus terminal, this busy market is open daily from 7am to 1pm. Not only will you find the best deals on fruit, vegetables, olive oil, local brandies and other edibles and drinkables but there are tables of tools, utensils, clothes, boot, electronic and other odds and ends.

Beside the standard European cuisine present in all restaurants and hotels specialties from the grill and the roasting-spit (lamb, pork, and poultry) are very popular. Some specialties are as follows: the Gavrilovic salami, the Dalmatian smoked ham, salty pilchards, sheep cheese, peppered Slavonian sausages, paprika-flavoured salami, etc. From fish meals the fish stew is very savoury, and in the continental region the peppered fish stew with fresh-water fish is favoured.
