About Split, Hvar and Brač
The capital of Croatia's Dalmatian province, Split, is the trendiest low-key travel destination that guests of all generations appear to be longing for – and why wouldn’t they be? Around every turn there is an extraordinary beach, fresh seafood, history, culture, and restored architecture to satisfy all possible holiday wish lists.
The remarkable Roman complex of Diocletian's Palace, in a prime harborside location in Split, is one of the most impressive remaining ancient Roman buildings. This is still the city's vibrant core, with its serpentine streets thriving with people, bars, shops, and five-star restaurants.
Brač is a white stone island off the Adriatic coast of Split known for its sunny disposition, white pebble beaches and fantastic windsurfing spots. The island produces high-quality wine, olive oil, figs, nectarines, and other fruits, but the renowned Brač stone has long been the primary export. It’s also home to the dramatic Golden Horn beach.
The smaller, swankier Hvar sits south of Brač and is home to handsome harbours in Hvar Town, as well as one of the oldest settlements in Croatia – Stari Grad. It has an elongated shape that resembles the profile of a traveller lounging in the sun, and its interior combines vineyards, rocky peaks, ancient hamlets and the island's signature lavender fields.
