Split Destination Guide
Glorious beaches, a dramatic mountain backdrop and fascinating Roman architecture make Split one of south-eastern Europe's top destinations
Beyond the palm tree-lined promenade of Croatia’s second city, a fascinating old town centres on the iconic Diocletian's Palace, and lively streets lined with bars and restaurants offer an atmospheric taste of the Dalmatian Coast.
Fly into Croatia from London City Airport and you’ll land at Split Airport, about 16 miles (25km) to the west of the city in nearby Kaštela. The country's second-largest airport saw considerable investment and refurbishment through 2018, and is well-served by public and private transport services, ensuring speedy transfers into Split.
The simplest way to access the city centre from the airport is by road, with the 37 bus departing from outside the terminal every 20 minutes. The journey into Split takes roughly 30 minutes, depending on traffic. Airport shuttle services run by local operator Pleso Prijevoz offer an alternative to public transport.
Taxi services are also available 24/7 from the concourse. There are also more than a dozen vehicle rental operators based at the terminal, should you wish to hire a car.
