One of the best known cities in Croatia, Split is an ancient town that has been captivating visitor’s imaginations for centuries. Well known for the UNESCO World Heritage Site Diocletian’s Palace, Split has a lot more to offer than just Roman ruins. I spent a day exploring this coastal city and quickly realized that it was nowhere nearly enough time. What I did manage to see though was amazing and I quickly fell in love with this beautiful Mediterranean city on the Adriatic Sea.

Croatia is definitely on my list – these photos just whet the appetite!
These photos bring back a lot of great memories. Wow – that first photo is awesome. I had no idea the mountains were that close.
Yeah, it’s a neat city
Woow Matt, impressive photos! I was last year in Split but I just passed by! I need to go back there ;-)
There were some great photos! I love the architecture and grittiness of Croatia. I really need to get over there for myself :)
Matt – these photos are so gorgeous! I think you captured the colours of the city perfectly! I went here a couple of years ago and I’m hopefully planning to go back to Croatia again next summer. It’s definitely one of Europe’s most under-rated holiday destinations. x
Thanks and I couldn’t agree more :)
I have been to several other places in Croatia, most notably Dubrovnik, but sadly Split is missing from the list. After seeing your great photographs that is an omission I will soon be remedying. I’ve read about and listened to recommendations but seeing it is the clincher. It’s really a case of a picture is worth a thousand words. Thanks
Wow Gordon thank you so much for the kind and generous words! I don’t think you’ll be disappointed, it’s a wonderful city.
A friend of mine is over in Croatia at the moment and absolutely loving it… he says it’s his favourite destination. Judging by your photos, I’d have to agree.
Croatia has been on my wish list for some time and your photography has made me more determined than ever to get there soon. I especially liked the angles you captured with the arches in picture number 2. I think I’ll need to scout around your site a bit to see what else I can find… Thank you for sharing your beautiful pictures!
Thanks so much Joanne, I really appreciate that! If you visit believe me you won’t regret it. Be sure to ask me any questions!
Matt, we’re headed to Split in a few days and excited to stay there for a month this winter. Loved to find pre-trip inspiration via your wonderful set of images. What other locales did you visit while in Dalmatia?
Awesome! While in Croatia I visited:Zagreb, Plitvice, Zadar, Pag,Split, Brac and Dubrovnik
Matt, what camera and lens are you using for your pics?
For these? Nikon D-5100 and a Tamron 18-275
