24 hours in Split, Croatia

In the region of Dalmatia, Split is the largest city of that region and is also the second largest city in Croatia.

We were lucky enough to spend 24 hours in the gorgeous Split before sailing off into the sunset on our week long trip from Split to Dubrovnik with Med Sailors.

What to see in Split, Croatia

Given we only had 24 hours, we spent our time in the old town. Walking along the esplanade really gives you that seaside village feel.

The cobble stone alleyways and cute little cafes and coffee shops are perfect for a snack or a rest.

Now, the best spot to look over this pretty old town is of course the Cathedral and Bell Tower of St Domnius. It is certainly worth the climb up the stairs because you end up with a view of this!

The markets along the esplanade were great! Plenty to see and do and of course you need to sample the local sweets! Our favourite was the Fritule! Basically they are doughnuts, little fried balls of dough and topped with your choice of nutella, chocolate or sugar. They were absolutely delicious!
