Cruising to Split, Croatia

Sitting on Croatia's Dalmatian Coast, Split enjoys fantastic year-round weather, with plenty of sunshine illuminating the many historic gems that can be found in its centre. Because of this, it's the perfect place for tourists who want to combine sunbathing with culture and heritage, and is one the few cities that really does offer the best of both worlds.

When it comes to relaxing in the sun, for example, beaches like Bene, Bacvice and Kasjuni offer golden sand and crystal-clear water, providing the chance to take the weight off your feet and enjoy the natural charms of this beautiful city. It's also worth heading to the top of Marjan Hill, where you'll have some pretty spectacular views across Split while also being able to escape into the serene woodlands that surround it.

Once you're ready to get a little more active, you'll find loads of fascinating ancient sites to explore in the city centre, with the Roman Palace of Diocletian - around which Split was originally built - still standing in the heart of the metropolis. Other places that are well worth visiting in order to gain an insight into the city's history include Jupiter's Temple - which was also constructed by the Romans - and the Archaeological Museum.
