There always seems to be something happening in Split, either along the Riva, amid the alleyways of Diocletian’s Palace or down on Bacvice beach. This is a Mediterranean culture where people spend most of their time outdoors, and discovering what’s around the next corner is most of the fun. Read on for Culture Trip’s round-up of the best things to see and do in Split.

Split’s city beach, just across the railway tracks from the bus station, is packed with Splicani and tourists all summer long. A half-moon of sand with shallow water for quite a way out, Bacvice lends itself to endless games of picigin, a ball game played with four or five people at the edge of the water. The Zbirac bar provides sun bathers with a welcome cold beer.
