Destination Essentials

Split enjoys the heavenly Mediterranean climate, making every season great to experience this coastal city's charm and vivacity. However, to enjoy the perfect combination of pleasant weather, bustling city life, and less tourist crowd, visiting between April and November is quite ideal.

Avoid the peak hotel prices of July by planning your trip in April. However, be aware that travellers on a tight budget might find the high season in June and September a bit overpriced. However, if you're up for experiencing Split's vibrant holiday atmosphere, the peak season of July and August offers everything you could possibly desire.
