For all these reasons, they are almost always full, so it is recommended to make a reservation in advance. They are open from 8 am for breakfast and for lunch and dinner.
After dinner, follows a night on the town.
Nightlife in Split
Riva promenade is the center of activities with numerous cafes and restaurants.

After a day of exploring the beaches, it is time to relax in a beach bar. Our travel bloggers chose Gooshter Beach Club which is located in Podstrana near Split next to the Le Meridien Lav Hotel.
As we already mentioned this beach bar is ideal for relaxing in the afternoon hours after the beach.

Regarding the design it has lots of shade which is the most important in summertime. There are also beach parasols available and a shaded lounge and dining area. Combined with the scent of the pine trees and tasty food and icecreams this is truly heaven!

For the next day of your luxury Split city break, we recommend sightseeing the Old Town and Marjan hill.
Climb Marjan Hill for the best view of Split.

It is located just next to the Old town and there are a lot of stairs but the view is worth it. You can see not only Split but the surrounding islands Brac and Solta as well.

For those who are discouraged by many stairs, you will be happy to read that Split viewpoint is reachable by car as well.
Split Old Town
We recommend you to start from the Riva promenade where you can buy a souvenir from your city break in Split.
Continue to the Cellars of the Diocletians' Palace because you haven't been to Split if you haven't seen the Diocletian palace.

From there exit to Peristil where you will see the Cathedral of St. Domnius, Egyptian sphinx, and Roman soldiers. You can even take a photo with them.
Vestibul is right next to it. There you can see the clear sky as there is no roof in this round building.
Prokurative is on the other side of the Riva where the Split music festival takes place each year.
Downtown you can see several famous statues as well like the statue of Marko Marulic, father of Croatian literature, and the Statue of Bishop Grgur Ninski. It is said that tapping his toe brings luck. This is why it is shiny! Both statues were made by famous Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic.
Marko Marulic Statue
Grgur Ninski is situated right next to the Zlatna Vrata - the Golden door to the palace. Roman soldiers guide it naturally as they once did in the times of the Diocletian Emperor. All people who wished to enter the palace were interrogated here and if soldiers were not happy with their answers they were not let in and even worse they were killed.

Near Zlatna Vrata there is the Game of Thrones Museum because part of this World famous series was filmed here. There is a guy who looks just like Tyrion Lannister there.

The narrow streets of the palace are enchanting. You can feel the history here. If you are lucky you might even participate in summer festivities in Marmontova street with music and costumed people parading showing their folklore clothing.

To spice it all up in the evening our travel bloggers visited the Split Park Festival on Zvoncac with live music and food and drinks in the open all summer long.
