Split

Duration: 4 days

Split really has a bit of everything – Built around Diocletian’s Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site from the 4th century, the old town area is incredibly striking and authentic, with narrow streets and ancient steps that have been traversed by visitors for over 1700 years. In the summer months, the city has several pebble beaches that are a great place to relax by the sea. There is also Marjan Hill – perfect for a good walk that rewards those willing to climb the steep paths with incredible panoramic views of the city and surrounding coastline. As the main transport hub to nearby islands, there are also numerous day trips on offer from local suppliers to places like Brac or Solta.

As evening falls, Split transforms into a vibrant nightlife destination. From beachside clubs to historic wine bars, the city caters to diverse tastes. With its welcoming locals, diverse attractions, and a perfect blend of ancient and modern, Split promises an unforgettable adventure for student travellers.
