Split Region

About

Split is situated on a peninsula between the eastern part of the Gulf of Kaštela and the Split Channel. The Marjan hill (178 m), rises in the western part of the peninsula. The ridges Kozjak (779 m) and its brother Mosor (1339 m) protect the city from the north and northeast, and separate it from the hinterland. Split peninsula is surrounded by the islands of Brač, Hvar, Šolta and Čiovo. Ferries from Split port is often the only link between the central Dalmatian islands with the mainland. Panoramic, Split can be seen in more detail from the first Marjan ‘vidilica’, or the 11 km away Klis fortress, from which you can see the entire archipelago with the islands.
