Split

Call 01242 547 934 to speak to a specialist Enquire


Steeped in history, Split is brimming with culture and a local population, "the Splicani", which is well known for its gregarious nature, love of singing, good food, drink and particularly for its devotion to sport.  Goran Ivanisevic, the 2001 Wimbledon champion and the American basketball NBA star, Toni Kukoc of the Chicago Bulls, were both born and bred here!

A "must see" during your Split holiday is the Diocletian Palace, built in 295 AD for Roman Emporer Diocletian.  It took 10 years to build this magnificent palace and Diocletian lived there until his death in 313 AD. After that, many Roman rulers continued to use it as a retreat. In the 7th century, when the Roman colony of Salona was abandoned, many of its inhabitants sought sanctuary behind the palace's high walls and their descendants lived there until the present day.

"Tea is totally unique - her knowledge of the local area is unsurpassed. Mishlav has a love of his city and it shows. We learnt more from Ivo in a morning than we could find out in the previous six months. I would thoroughly recommend every single one of them - they are all a credit to A&K "
