Fall in love with the turquoise waters of the Adriatic and the dramatic coastal mountain as a backdrop. Despite initial appearances, the city is not just a small tourist town.
Split is actually Croatia's second largest city, and extends over a large area well beyond the ancient core. With over 300,000 people in the wider bay area, Split is the economic hub of the eastern Adriatic shoreline.
Dozens of bars, restaurants and shops thrive amid the atmospheric old walls inside the Diocletian’s Palace (a Unesco World Heritage site and one of the world’s most impressive Roman monuments).
Internet can be pretty easy to find at cafes or internet cafes without having to pay too much.
Split is a safe city and women digital nomads should not run into problems. Women aren’t ogled or harassed, and the locals are extremely helpful and welcoming.
Since Split is highly dependent on the high tourism season, it can be a challenge to find long-term accommodation since many landlords exclude summer in rental contracts.
Split has a mild climate and the weather is generally good throughout the year, although winters can be somewhat unpredictable.
Summers can be hot, with temperatures in the mid-thirties, and those seeking milder temperatures may prefer the months of May, June and September.
Although most island tourism businesses are only open from April to October/November, the shoulder months are quieter but contain some great culture and festivals. Prices are also cheaper during the off-peak months.
