What is Split
Split is a city in Central Dalmatia, Croatia. The city was originally built around the Diocletian palace (built for the retired Roman emperor Diocletian) where the locals sought refuge centuries ago. Wandering the historic center of Split you can still clearly see the Roman walls, squares, and temples. The most interesting part of Split is the historic center built within the walls of the former Roman palace. This centre is a few minutes walk from the ferry terminals and from the intercity bus station. However, the modern center of Split is elsewhere.

Having again read much about how nice Split is I was disappointed. The price/quality ratio sucks big time and there really isn't anything to do here that I could think of. Notice the dead cockroach in the broken electrical outlet. The outlet was conveniently located on top of the bathtub so that we had to squat down to avoid hitting the socket while showering. Needless to say this didn't really do much good on our view on Split. Thus we decided to split the hotel and Split after the first night.
We decided to park our car and get a ship to an close by island called Vis and that was a great decision. Visiting Vis is a must if you're in the area. A million times better that Split. No tourists (well, a few dozen or so), lots of beaches and nature and all. It was a great place. A you can visit one of the hideouts of Tito as well. :)
About places near Split
Split is not a shoppers paradise, so the most wicked boutiques in the are ice cream boutiques and bars. In general the ice cream is so cheap there its almost free. And the taste, you can not compare it to nothing else. So stroll around the historical town and pamper your self with some ice cream! :)
