A glimpse into the Croatian Port City of Split

Croatian yacht rental experts Navis Yacht Charter have been long-standing fans of the utterly charming seaside city of Split in Croatia and were therefore particularly happy to see Croatia’s second city included in a list of ‘19 Truly Charming Places To See Before You Die’ on the BuzzFeed web portal.
Split is an ancient Roman city, beautifully situated on the Eastern Adriatic with something for every taste. A UNESCO world heritage site with stunning views, charming restaurants and ultra-relaxing spas – Split has it all. It is also one of the favoured destinations for those enjoying a luxury sailing holiday and a poll of luxury yacht charter captains and crew has given an inside scoop on how to get the best out of Split.

Many holiday-makers head for Split’s numerous spa and wellness centres for the best in relaxation, including the amazing 2,500 sq. metre Diocletian Spa in the Le Méridien Lav. Guests are invited to try out their exquisite Hot Chocolate Massage or Facial treatments.

If you do choose Split as your destination this summer, prepare to be dazzled, like millions of visitors before you, by the gleaming white stone of the Diocletian’s Palace. The palace is located opposite the harbour, the landing place for many who have chosen to sail Croatia’s extensive coastline. A UNESCO world heritage site since 1979, it is one of the most impressive Roman ruins in existence.

Finally, for those seeking exceptional nightlife as part of their dream luxury holiday, Split is home to the unmissable event of this summer, the Ultra Music Festival. The first installment has already taken place in Miami and this year’s European event includes a strong line-up of world-famous DJs. For younger travellers (or those who are young at heart) it is the place to be seen in 2014. This electronic dance music event will take place from 11th – 13th July at the Poljud Stadium, but will also include opportunities to join boat parties.

Split offers an extensive range of options to travellers, from cultural sites, to interesting nightlife and as such it is clear why it has been voted among the top places to see before you die.
