Split is the second-largest city in Croatia, with a population of 160 thousand, located on the beautiful Adriatic coast. Its historic centre resides inside a Roman palace (Diocletian’s Palace) built in the 4th century. The city of Split is surrounded by lovely beaches and is the gateway to the beautiful Dalmatian islands.
