Ports of embarkation

SPLIT is situated in the Central Dalmatia, on the peninsula of Split. It is the largest city in Dalmatia, the second largest city in Croatia (the wider metropolitan area has more than 200,000 inhabitants), and the third port on the Mediterranean by the number of passengers transported.
The city`s origin is associated with the construction of the Diocletian`s Palace (295 – 305 AD), which was built here by the order of the Roman emperor Diocletian, because of favourable geographic position and the pleasant Mediterranean climate. The Diocletian`s Palace is the largest and the best preserved Antique palace in the world, and in 1979 it was included in UNESCO's register of World Cultural Heritage. The interesting fact is that the aqueduct, which was built during the construction of the Palace, is still in use and supplies the city of Split with drinking water from the Jadro River spring.
The islands Brač, Hvar, Šolta and Čiovo are situated in front of Split, and are well connected to the city by frequent ferry and catamaran lines. Besides these, Split is connected by ferry lines to all other islands in Central Dalmatia, as well as to Pula, Dubrovnik, Ancona, Venice and Greece. Near the city port there are bus and railway station, and the airport is in the city of Kaštela (20 km away).
Split, with its surrounding area, has dozens of beaches, and the most popular one is Bačvice, a sandy beach situated almost in the heart of the city.
Cultural and entertainment life of the city is quite rich. During the summer season (from mid July to mid August), a traditional Split summer festival is held, when popular dramas, operas and concerts are performed. Split also hosts pop music festivals, folklore shows, folk festivity Days of Radunica and two film festivals – Split film festival and Mediterranean film festival Split. During the year, there are also Days of Marulić (in April) and The Book of Mediterranean (in October), and among traditional events, there are Day of the Assumption of the Holy Cross, the Flower Fair, the gastronomy fair and many others. The day of the city is celebrated on 7 May, on the day of St. Duje (St. Domnius), the patron of the city.
The citizens of Split tend to say that their city is “the sportiest city in the world”. In 1979 Mediterranean Games were held here, and after the Olympic Games in Athens, in 2004, Split became the city with the highest number of medals in the world, in respect to the number of its citizens.
