Historically fascinating and littered with beautiful cities, beaches, cobbled streets and exuberant nightlife, if you’re coming to Croatia, Split has to be on your bucket list of places to see.

Road-trips in Croatia
Due to its prime coastal location, Split is an ideal spot for a road trip around Croatia. The journey to Dubrovnik is very popular and takes approximately four hours around the southern Dalmatian coast. However, there are so many photo opportunities, you’re likely to spend a lot longer on the road. With countryside and mountains as well as the ocean as your friend, give yourself plenty of time. If you’re heading north from Split, Zagreb is just over four hours away. And while it’s inland rather than coastal, it’s still a worthwhile trip. Zagreb is another fabulous Croatia destination.
