Split is a hit! It’s no surprise that the number of tourists who decide to travel to Split grows from year to year, but of course most tourists come during the summer season. This year, Advent in Split has given an even bigger boost, drawing great numbers of tourism for the off-season.
Here are the statements by the Tourist Board of Split, as reported by Dalmacija News on January 3, 2017.
