Split, Croatia Travel Guide Last Updated: Dec 2021

Split isn’t as famous as its southern neighbor Dubrovnik, but it’s arguably just as charming and interesting, not to mention a far better travel value. The Old Town areas of the two cities are very similar, though Split feels like a living city while Dubrovnik exists only for tourists.
