Right across the sea from Italy, in the bang smack middle of the Croatian coast lies Split. Built by Romans, used by Venetians, re-decorated and urbanised by Napoleon's generals, it is a beautiful city where Dalmatian tradition and urban living sit at the same table enjoying a macchiato.
Why don't you come down to boutique hostel Goli+Bosi and get one too?
Dorm-style bunk bed rooms able to accomodate 4, 6 or 8 people at the same time, with bed design that provides a degree of privacy, when you need to take a dive in the lake You or just check your NSFW emails.
Situated at the top floor, these spacious double bedrooms with a nice bathroom, balcony and a great view are the best we have to offer. Great for couples or really good friends who like to share, these rooms come with a free breakfast.
Perfect for people that don't spend a lot of time in the room. A small private room where you can grab a shut-eye and a shower after a long day and night. Tiny, but with everything you might need and can be made dark and cool for daytime kips.
With a nice terrace taking over most of a Morpurgova poljana (it is a square called Morpurgo's meadow) snack pizzeria De*Belly is a great place for a quick bite even if you are staying someplace else. Menu is rich and cooks are good, so sit down, order a coffee or a breakfast beer or whatever you like and relax for minute. Your aching feet command it!
All of the food at De*belly is prepared from fresh ingredients and for any wallet size.
Built in the 4th century by a retired Roman emperor that wanted to grow cabage in peace and take sluphur baths for his aching bones, Split is the second largest city in Croatia, but probably the first city of Croatia when it comes to beauty. The narrow streets of the Old Town, criss-crossed by drying laundry, small fishermen's port of Matejuška, sandy beach of Bačvice and shaded rocks of Marjan all tell the same story. Split rules. It is the only place in Croatia where you can hop on a ferry and spend the day on one of the islands and return in the evening for cocktails and dancing in the streets. On the other hand, you might think you will just pass through Split and stay for a week. We love Split. Once you meet it, you will love it too.
