Croatia's largest city was used as a location for parts of Game of Thrones. Split enjoys a location along the shimmering Adriatic, ensconced by the surrounding mountains. This is where visitors on a city break can savour a slice of the authentic Dalmatian life. Step into the atmospheric Diocletian’s Palace, a Roman monument that holds within it age old cafes, shops and bars - the town's attractions are mostly centred around here. The belltower at the top of the Cathedral of St Domnius rewards brave climbers with sweeping views over the coast and inland. Make sure to rub the golden toe of the statue of holy man Gregory of Nin for good luck. Once dusk falls the lovely promenade known as the Riva beckons. Split proposes value-for-money bike tours, walking tours and kayak tours. Foodies should check out Sperun for its Dalmation fare and excellent seafood spaghetti. Wind up that weekend break with some cheese and wine at Split's trendy bars.
