The former Yugoslav country of Croatia has emerged as an increasingly popular tourist destination over the last few years, with millions of visitors choosing to explore its spectacular natural scenery, charming towns and villages and enjoy its reliably warm and sunny climate. Whether you’re looking to top up your tan, learn a bit about the local history or simply recharge your batteries for a little while, a holiday in Croatia is sure to have plenty to offer you. The city of Split, located along the eastern shores of the Adriatic Sea, is a truly memorable holiday destination. Here at Co-operative Travel we have a range of great deals on all-inclusive holidays to Split and much more.
One of the oldest cities in its region, Split had long been considered to be around 1,700 years old, dating from the construction of Diocletian’s Palace - now a Unesco World Heritage Site immensely popular with tourists today - in AD 305. However, more recent archaeological research has suggested the city was originally founded as part of the Greek colony Aspathalos, approximately some 900 years earlier. Needless to say, Split’s remarkable past offers plenty for the dedicated history buff to get stuck into, and there are all sorts of spectacular historical sights to see on a package holiday to Split.
Of course, there’s more to enjoying a holiday to Split than the chance to bone up on some history. The city is home to a dazzling array of restaurants offering both traditional and contemporary cuisine, while there are also plenty of shops – ranging from small arts and crafts stalls to upmarket designer brands – for visitors to experience. Whatever you’re looking for from your next holiday, Split has something for everyone.
