Day trips from Split
For decades, Split has been attracting visitors all year round. Split is an excellent tourist destination, especially in the summer season when everything is teeming with people. For a long time, the most famous product was the sun and the sea, but in recent years things have changed and the tourist offer has become "more complex". Although Split will surely delight you, we still recommend that you explore other wonderful areas.
1. Plitvice Lakes National Park - The largest and oldest national park in Croatia, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Plitvice Lakes are one of the most photogenic and painted parts of Croatia. It consists of 16 large lakes and several smaller and four mountain trails and is open to visitors throughout the year. We advise you to leave earlier, because it takes about 2 and a half hours from Split to Plitvice Lakes. After touring the lake, you can dine at the restaurant within the park or choose one of the local restaurants.
2. Šibenik - Only one hour from Split is one of the oldest Croatian cities - Šibenik. Cathedral of St. Jakov in Šibenik is one of the most significant and most beautiful architectural achievements in Croatia and is also on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Another landmark on the UNESCO list is the Fortress of St. Nicholas. Enjoy the beautiful panoramic view through the promenade in the channel Sv. Ante. Or climb the Fortress of St. Mihovila with a beautiful view of the city and many islands.
3. Zadar - Zadar is a city of romance and love, a place of passion and spirit. You must not miss the Sea Organ - an artistic musical instrument that creates beautiful sounds by turning sea waves into a melody. Right next to the organ on the Zadar waterfront is Greeting to the Sun, another installation - during the day it absorbs solar energy and after sunset it creates a spectacular light show. Enjoy a cocktail in the many lounge bars or visit one of the nearby islands by ferry and swim in the blue sea. Take a break and listen to the sound of the waves, relax with the most beautiful sunsets in the world. Visit Nin, the oldest Croatian royal town and bathe on beautiful sandy beaches. Along the way, go to the saltworks and the salt museum and try a part of the tradition - Nin chocolate. Discover why Nin was officially named "Europe's Best Romantic Destination"! While you are nearby, visit the Biograd Riviera, Paklenica, the island of Pag and the Zadar hinterland.
