Off the beaten track
Split has many UNESCO World Heritage sites to enjoy and you’ve never been to Split before, then you’re going to want to see the marbled maze of majestic historical treasures. That’s for later in the day, however, when the sites are open. If you love an early morning walk, then the dense pine forest of Marjan Park is the place you’re going to want to be. With plenty of hiking trails, this park offers a cool, quiet place to enjoy a brisk walk while getting away from the hustle and bustle of the early morning city streets.
The early morning isn’t the only time of day that one can enjoy Marjan Park. Whenever you want a panoramic view of Split, then this is one of the best places to be. There are public beaches available within the park as well, but these do tend to get busy with tourists and locals alike as the weather begins to warm up. There are plenty of facilities on site, cart vendors if you need a snack, and a cool way to enjoy whatever portion of the day you choose to spend here.
You’ll find Sustipan in the southwest portion of Split harbor and there is just as much history here as there is throughout the rest of the city. The green space dates back to Medieval times and was initially used as an agricultural space because it was outside the city walls. As the city modernized, Sustipan began to be used as the town cemetery.
The best thing to do in Sustipan is to just find an open patch of grass, watch the sea, and enjoy a beautifully sunny day that Split has offered you. There’s enough open space that you can bring a game or two to play if you want as well. Even a simple stroll amongst the trees is a viable way to enjoy the simple, classicist style of this open area.
The palace in Split is one of the most visited places in the city and for good reason. You’re going to want to spend some time there too! The varos that surrounds the palace, however, is equally breathtaking! It’s a true sense of the Middle Ages that you’ll get as you wander about this appealing part of town. There are fewer glimpses of wealth and fame here and getting lost isn’t necessarily a bad thing!
There are stone churches to see, narrow streets to navigate, and small homes with steep walking slopes to enjoy. In many ways, the neighborhoods surrounding the palace is the true heartbeat of the city over the centuries and you’ll feel that with every step that you take. There are some guided tours available of the neighborhood to see, but sometimes not having an agenda is the way to go. Do try to see the Sveti Frane while meandering.
This is another one of the neighborhoods that surround the old city center and it is named after an old water spring that was located in the area. Most people come to this neighborhood to enjoy the festival that is held there in the last week of June, but the old cobble streets and hidden alleys have many hidden gems to offer at any time of year. There are several small squares that offer little shops and cafes to enjoy and the red shutters matched with the white stone blocks make for an outstanding view.
Even if you don’t love visiting ruins, the charm of Salona is something that will leave an impression on you permanently. This old city has a museum to enjoy, but on a beautiful day, strolling the old city to see the public baths and the amphitheater is a wonderful time. There are lots of open spaces and with the mountains in the background, this is a great way to enjoy what Split has to offer all in one location.
It takes a little effort to make your way to Cetina Canyon outside of Split, but the effort is definitely worth the time and price it might take! The waters of the canyon shine with an emerald brilliance on a sunny day and the river runs like a necklace underneath the high canyon walls. If you love a good canyon adventure, free climbing, kayaking, and rafting are all available.
There are also several little villages that you can explore along the canyon and each has something truly unique to offer. Some have local wines and other alcohol for sale, while local honey is always a good option as well. Homemade dishes seem to always be cooking, providing a tempting aroma no matter where you happen to go.
