Split, Croatia

Split is the largest and most important Dalmatian city and the second-largest urban centre in Croatia. The city is situated on the shores of the eastern Adriatic Sea, spreading over a central peninsula and its surroundings. An important regional transit center, the city is a vital link to the numerous surrounding Adriatic islands and the Italian peninsula, as well as a popular tourist destination. Split is also one of the oldest cities in the area, and is traditionally considered just over 1,700 years old. Split is also known as one of the centers of Croatian culture. There is great cultural activity during summers, when the prestigious Split Music Festival is held, followed by the Split Summer theater festival. Since 1979, the historic center of Split has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
