Traffic Information

Our Split Airport branch is on the first floor of the arrivals hall and once you have your keys the city centre is just half an hour's drive away. The Split branch is on Obala Ante Trumbica and an easy walk from the town centre or just jump on local buses 7 and 21.

Sat Navs help you navigate the narrow streets of old Split as well as the winding country roads of Croatia. Although city streets are generally well-maintained once away from the town surfaces are variable and roads unlikely to be lit at night. Croatians have a reputation for fast driving and horns tend to be used for greeting fellow drivers rather than as a warning. Driving regulations are similar to the rest of Europe and driving licences have to be carried at all times.

The town of Split is divided into four street parking zones with rates becoming more expensive the closer you get to the city centre. There are also guarded car parking areas, most of which operate around the clock.

Take a tour around Split in your rental vehicle to get a feel for its different districts and historical past which stretches back to the impressive ruins of the 4th-century Diocletian Palace. Continue to drive along the bustling harbourside and up the Marjan Hill for impressive views back across the city and coastline. The marble streets of the walled Diocletian Palace are home to the Town and Archaeological Museums. Also worth a visit is the Ethnographic Museum which gives an insight into the area's colourful social history with its exhibits of costumes, crafts and musical instruments. You do not have to go far to enjoy the sparkling blue Adriatic waters as Split's beaches are definitely part of the town. Bacvice Beach is family-friendly with a good range of facilities, bars and restaurants.

Explore Croatia's Ancient History in Split

The magnificent Diocletian Palace is at the heart of Split and is like a city within a city. Built by the Romans it is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This fortified palace was built by Emperor Diocletian for his retirement years and took ten years to complete. Since the 7th-century its thick walls have held homes and businesses as well as royal residences and it is now a bustling mix of local life and tourist attractions. Stroll around Roman temples decorated with Egyptian sphinxes before browsing the artisan craft stalls in the grand Basement Halls. The city gates of the palace never close and once the sun has set it is one of the most romantic spots in Split.
