Daily Telegraph on Why Split Should be Your Next City Break

The Daily Telegraph writes “Why Split is better than Dubrovnik (and should be your next city break)”.

One again, international media has put the spotlight on Split. This time, The Daily Telegraph has applauded our Dalmatian capital in their piece “Why Split is better than Dubrovnik (and should be your next city break)” published on April 5, 2017.

Travel writer Linda Cookson outlines why you should go to Split now, how you should get there, where you should stay, and what you should do for the perfect 2-day city break in the city of Diocletian.

Cookson opens the text by saying the city of Split is “a revelation…a seafront gem that combines honeycombs of unique historical buildings with a cosmopolitan, palm-lined ‘Riva’ waterfront and a glorious wooded peninsula (Marjan).” 

A strong start to the article, Cookson continues by gushing over Split’s secluded beaches, fortifications, majestic monuments, and medieval alleyways crammed with “higgledy-piggledy shops and restaurants”. She suggests visiting Split during the annual Summer Festival when the “palace’s magnificent courtyard – the Peristyle – is transformed into an open-air stage”.

While there are plenty of ways you can get to Split (the article suggests flying with EasyJet or Norwegian Air), where should you stay?

Cookson considers Hotel Park a “special treat”, Cornaro a go-to for “mid-range”, and if you’re on a budget? Try Hotel B&B Kastel.

Cookson continues with a fairly detailed 2-day schedule for those on a quick visit to the Dalmatian capital, outlining each step you should take from your arrival to your departure.

So, what should you absolutely see?

Narrowing it down considerably, Cookson encourages readers to explore the depths of Diocletian’s palace, enjoy drinks at Peristyle and dinner at Pjaca, see “klapa” in the Vestibule, try chocolate “records” at Nadalina, enjoy Bačvice, Kašjuni, and Obojena beaches, visit the Ivan Mestrovic Gallery, see the view from Vidilica cafe, visit a restaurant on Matejuška, and much, much more.
