About this sound

Split is the second-largest city of Croatia and the largest city of the region of Dalmatia, with about 200,000 people living in its urban area. It lies on the eastern shore of the Adriatic Sea and is spread over a central peninsula and its surroundings. An intraregional transport hub and popular tourist destination, the city is linked to the Adriatic islands and the Apennine peninsula.

Hugely popular locations from the Game of Thrones can be visted throughout the city.

Papalićeva Street in Split became one of the Streets Seen in Slave Rebellion Scene.

Home to Diocletian’s Palace, built for the Roman emperor in AD 305, the city was founded as the Greek colony of Aspálathos (Aσπάλαθος) in the 3rd or 2nd century BC. It became a prominent settlement around 650 when it succeeded the ancient capital of the Roman province of DalmatiaSalona. After the Sack of Salona by the Avars and Slavs, the fortified Palace of Diocletian was settled by the Roman refugees. Split became a Byzantine city, to later gradually drift into the sphere of the Republic of Veniceand the Kingdom of Croatia, with the Byzantines retaining nominal suzerainty. For much of the High and Late Middle Ages, Split enjoyed autonomy as a free city, caught in the middle of a struggle between Venice and the King of Hungary for control over the Dalmatian cities.

The apartment has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a flat-screen TV with satellite channels, a dining area, a fully equipped kitchen, and a patio with lake views.

At the apartment guests are welcome to use a spa center and a sauna. There’s a playground and a terrace at this property and guests can go hiking nearby.

Bacvice Beach is 3.1 miles away, while Diocletian’s Palace is 3.3 miles away. The nearest airport is Split Airport, only 14 miles from the accommodation.
