There are several things you definitely need to know about Split.
Split is the second-largest city of Croatia and the largest city of the region of Dalmatia. It lies on the eastern shore of the Adriatic Sea, centred on the Roman Palace of the Emperor Diocletian. Split has a history filled with Roman emperors and a magnificent cultural inheritance. As such, it is also one of the biggest tourist destinations and one of the biggest ports of Mediterranean, due to the proximity of the airport and ferry port.
While traditionally considered just over 1,700 years old, counting from the construction of Diocletian’s Palace in 305 CE, the city was in fact founded as the Greek colony of Aspálathos in the 4th century BC, about 2,400 years ago. The perfect beginning of discovering Split’s secrets and historical monuments is Diocletian’s palace.
To understand better the term ‘splitska fjaka’ – you will have to find a coffee bar (it shouldn’t be too difficult; Split Riviera is full of them and the view is magnificent), order coffee and don’t drink it fast, don’t leave the table for at least 2 hours or so and just enjoy the relaxed lifestyle of true locals. ‘Fjaka’ is a term for a physical and psychological state in which you usually get after lunch, when you don’t want to do anything and all you want to do is actually just relaxing. Perfect for a vacation!
The market of Split or ”Pazar” is one of the central places of the morning jam – try bargaining for a kilo of tomatoes or a few strawberries. This is, with no doubt, the place where you will find everything necessary for your ideal meal if you’re into eating healthy. Well, even if you’re not – you shouldn’t miss this great chance to buy (relatively cheap) true organic food that villagers outside Split grow and sell here. The ingredients you buy at the store taste nothing like these.
As expected, Split has a rich nightlife to offer. Walking down the main street, called after the French general Marmont, will get you to the Split Riviera – feel the breath of fresh air at Riva and have a beer or two at Matejuška to relax. These are the charms of Split lifestyle.
