Why Split, Croatia?

We will be setting up base in Split, Croatia, which is central to the islands, the lakes, and historic Croatian towns. It’s an exciting Mediterranean city to live in that has a small town vibe and offers great food, culture, and adventure opportunities.

The Islands
Forget bar hopping, let’s go island hopping! There are so many tiny and charming islands to explore in Croatia, and they are easily accessible through a ferry ride from Split. From the calm and cute island town of Korcula, to the beach bars on Hvar, every island has its own vibe and worth exploring!
The Lakes and Waterfalls
The Plitvice and Krka lakes are breathtaking. From dramatic waterfalls to beautiful hikes through the national park, it’s like being transported to the land of the enchanted! Plitvice is in a forest reserve located in central Croatia, known for a chain of 16 terraced lakes, joined by waterfalls, that extend into a limestone canyon. Krka is a river in Croatia's Dalmatia region, known for its numerous waterfalls. Pack your swimwear for an amazing dip!
History and Old Town
In Split, the 1,700 old history is all around you! Diocletian’s palace, which is a UNESCO world heritage site, is surrounded by 4 town gates within which lies a labyrinth of allies, cobbled streets and the Split old town passageways. You will quickly be transported to an ancient era where you can almost hear the horse run buggies as you walk down the streets. You can view this city from a 13th century bell tower or walk around and explore myths behind the famed statue of Grgur Ninski. Look out for the big toe for good luck!
Adventure
With the air being so magical while indulging in all the beauty around, you can still choose to get your heart racing with the many adrenaline rushing activities Croatia has to offer. If you think hiking up a cliff was the real challenge, brace yourself when you reach the edge and have to jump into the Adriatic Sea! This one may not be for everyone, but screaming down a forest path while zip-lining can be :). Or perhaps a good old jet-ski race or a stand-up paddle-board in beautiful blue waters might be the rush we crave after floating through the serene seas.
The Riva
This famed seafront promenade is perfect for a beautiful sunset or just people watching. The Riva is always buzzing with innumerable cafes, restaurants and bars where the travelers and the locals alike spend hours eating brunch or sipping coffee while taking in the fresh breeze from the Adriatic Sea. If there’s ever a perfect place to watch the world go by without a care, this is it.
Gelatos and the local food
Dalmatian local food is delicious with many restaurants showcasing traditional food such as beef stew, gnocchi, stuffed bell peppers, and grilled oily fish. We can go on and on about our favorite local restaurants which will all be featured in our Split guide you will receive when you sign-up, but we cannot leave without mentioning the Gelatos! Just Yummmm! The innumerable flavors and creamy rich deliciousness will always be a safe haven before, during, or after any walking around we do in town.
