The Irish Independent’s Yvonne Gordon writes why Split is the Croatian city break.
It’s no surprise, really, that Split is the ultimate destination for your next city break. In fact, just last month, the Daily Telegraph told readers to ditch Dubrovnik and not think twice about booking Split for an upcoming holiday. The Irish Independent’s latest rave about Split for a weekend getaway further proves that the city under Marjan is the place to be.
Travel Writer of the Year for the Irish Independent, Yvonne Gordon, preaches to readers in her latest piece titled “Done Dubrovnik? Split’s the difference on this Croatian city break” on May 7, 2017.
Gordon walks readers from a morning coffee on the Riva and importance of coffee culture in Split, to an exploration of Diocletian’s Palace – taking an adventure through the cracks and crevices of the ancient monument.
From Diocletian’s cellars to Peristyle, Gordon follows the sounds of klapa singers at Vestibule before becoming acquainted with our famous squares. And of course, there was time to graze through our vibrant markets.
On day two of the trip, the writer set off to explore the Dalmatian Hinterland, just a hop, skip, and a jump away from Split. Gordon explored the sights of Klis and ventured over to Sinj to enjoy the painting of Our Lady of Sinj and the Sinj Alka Museum.
While Inland Dalmatia is becoming a must on everyone’s travel itineraries, it would be a shame to miss out on exploring some of the many islands just a short ride away from Split. As easy as 1, 2, 3, Gordon hopped off to Hvar for an afternoon of lavender fields, villages, trails, and cafes.
So, what are the top-3 must do’s on this writer’s list? The Marjan peninsula, the Dalmatian islands, and the UNESCO town of Trogir just a short drive away.
