Gat Sv. Duje 1, Split, Dalmatia, 21000

The Basics

In addition to larger vessels, the Port of Split caters to yachts, fishing boats, and light watercraft. As it's just southeast of the city and adjacent to public transportation, it's convenient for both day-trippers and those planning a shore excursion. Walk 10 minutes from the port to reach Old Town with highlights such as Diocletian’s Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; take a shore excursion to discover the millennia-old city; or go white-water rafting on the Cetina River.

  • An array of restaurants, bars, and cafés can be found minutes from the Port; the city’s popular Green Market is also a good place to nibble and browse.
