Split in 100 Pictures: 2. New Year

Written by 

Continuing our look at the city of Split in 100 photographs, with grateful thanks to the Split Tourist Board.

The Dalmatian capital is a twelve-month destination, offering a variety of activities, sights and festivals throughout the year. While the main tourist season occurs in the summer and the popular choice is a day at the beach, Split does New Year in style, with a range of concerts and events, including the largest dancing party in Europe - salsa on the beach!

It is also a chance for the 1,700 year old Diocletian's Palace to merge architectural heritage with modern celebration, and the palace is a delight to explore with its festive decorations. This picture - Narodni Trg.

After ten years of living on Hvar, and 18 months of promoting its tourism via the Total Hvar website and island's first guidebook in English, I have decided that it is time to discover Split.

Being an islander, Split has always been a place of transit, shopping and medical emergency, but that is about to change. It is a magnificent city, from its stunning heritage to great nightlife, and plenty more in between.

The EU is here and so are more and more flights to the Dalmatian capital. And while there are several sites out there which give out the basics of Split, there is no regularly updated website in English, which really sets out to get to known the city in all its facets.

Until now. Welcome to Total Split, a journey of discovery of a booming tourist city on the Adriatic coast. If you would like to contribute, we would love to hear from you. Or why not follow us on Facebook?
