There are four main areas in Split, Croatia that require maps when visiting. They are the airport, the Riva Promenade where the ferry docks are, the old town where the Diocletian Palace is located, and Marjan Hill which overlooks the city from above.
Despite the city of Split city being of medium size, these maps will help facilitate your first-time visiting this city. By presenting different maps of the city’s parts, will give a visitor a useful indication of what will be the priorities, a tourist must visit first.
If you take a quick glimpse on where’s Split page, it is evident its geographical position of well-known importance as a giant transportation hub for all local and international (from/to Italy) ferry connections.
In addition to its prominent maritime position, Split has a very important airport situated in the immediate vicinity. For this reason, a map of the airport will undoubtedly be very useful. Split city as every city in the world has some part that a first time visitor should add as ‘must be seen’. This first of all refers to the old city, better known as the Diocletian Palace.
Airport to Riva
If you are getting to Split city by plane, the below map visually presents the airport location and distance from it to Split Harbor. The cheapest and easiest way to go from Split Airport to Split Port is to take an airport bus (split airport schedule bus) which gets you off at Obala Lazareta. It is just a short walk from the ferry port. See the map above.
No matter whether you are coming to or departing from Split, you’ll inevitably find yourself in its most hectic zone. This is the city’s harbor area, the point where all buses, trains, ferries, and airport transfers arrive. It is the busiest and most chaotic point of this typical Mediterranean city. it is a typical hive especially in the period of July and August.
The most important and most visited part of Split in the old town is the Diocletian Palace complex. The map below map indicates the exact location of the oldest city area with Diocletian Palace. On the map, you can see the old town map from Riva promenade and four main entrance gates, Bronze, Iron, Silver, and Golden gate.
Every time you want to take a break from the hectic lifestyle of the city is enough to take a pleasant walk to Marjan Hill forest. It has always been a favorite place for walking, running, jogging, climbing, or riding a bike. I vigorously recommend to take some time to visit this magnificent natural park and I hope you’ll find this map helpful.
