What's Split Like?
Undoubtedly the greatest sight to be seen is Diocletian's Palace, a magnificent and sprawling complex constructed by the Romans in the heart of the city. This is one of the greatest Roman ruins in the world and is still a center of commerce. The octagonal Cathedral of St Domnius is almost as old, being originally built as Diocletian's mausoleum and was greatly expanded in later years. The Town Museum is housed in a late Gothic palace that serves as an exhibit in itself. In yet another fascinating building - this time, the city's first hospital - you'll find the Gallery of Fine Arts, with almost 400 displays going back 700 years. And make sure you visit Gregorious of Nin. This imposing statue of the 10th century bishop has his left big toe worn smooth - it's said rubbing it guarantees good luck and a return to the city.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Capri
Croatians are a warm people, although fairly conservative. It's frowned upon to walk around the town center in swimming outfits, which many tourists do since the beach is nearby. Dress properly if you're frequenting cafes and bars. To really ingratiate yourself with the locals, buy someone a cup of coffee, as it is a constant backdrop to life. Many speak English, but a few Croatian phrases won't hurt. In terms of food, top tips are pasticada (stewed beef in sauce), paradizet (a dessert made from biscuits, milk and eggs), fresh fish and local cakes. Now you know all about the city, start looking for Split hotels with Venere today whether you travel throughout Croatia or stay in Split.
