Split is no stranger to fabulous accommodation. Whether it be a 5 star hotel, a hostel, or an apartment for rent in the center, Split has learned to harbor its guests in the most fashionable way. In recent years, boutique hotels have made their mark on the hospitality scene, and we’re here to give you some of the best boutique hotels inside the Diocletian’s Palace for a wonderful stay in Split.
Vestibul Palace is located in the heart of Diocletian's Palace on Iza Vestibula 4. Standing above peristil, Vestibul Palace comprises stonework from Roman, Gothic, and Renaissance periods, with a modern interior design. With amenities like the hotel speedboat for island excursions, valet parking and luggage delivery, the staff at Vestibul will be taking good care of you.

Although this hotel isn’t exactly inside of Diocletian’s Palace, its proximity to it is close enough and we felt it deserved an honorable mention. Behind the palace on Zadarska 13, Hotel Marmont presents you with 21 rooms, decorated in minimalist and modern design, each with a view overlooking the city.

Dalmatia Wine Expo, opening next Friday, has announced the programme of lectures, guided wine tastings, and the restaurants participating in Stars of Cuisine.
Plitvice, with its luminous lakes and spectacular waterfalls, is one of the most popular destinations in this part of Europe! The waters flowing over the limestone and chalk have, over thousands of years, deposited travertine barriers, creating natural dams which in turn have created a series of 16 beautiful lakes, caves and waterfalls. These geological processes continue today. The forests in the park are home to bears, wolves and many rare bird species. The entire area around the lakes is so lush and wildly pristine that UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site in 1979.
The lake system is divided into the upper lakes and the lower lakes. The lakes receive most of their water from rivers called Black River and White River. After it rushes past the Sastavci waterfall on the lower lakes, water continues to flow to the Korana River and the Plitvice brook, dropping from an elevation of 76m.
The Lake areas are lovely and cool during summer, icy and calm in winter, yellow and ochre in autumn, green and fresh in spring. Most of the region gets cowered with snow from November until the end of March and, in December and January, all of the lakes freeze over creating a magical winter landscape.
The lakes and the park are conveniently located near the main road that connects Zagreb with the Adriatic Coast which enables us to offer Plitvice tours from all regions of Croatia except the islands and Dubrovnik.
Tour from Zagreb includes a visit to the very picturesque Rastoke. Rastoke is located on Slunjcica River, right before it flows into the river Korana. In Rastoke, Slunjcica creates a series of small lakes and picturesque waterfalls. Discover the rare symbiosis of beautiful nature and well preserved 17th century mills. Enjoy the fresh caught trout, delicious lamb from Lika region, veal or venison in a local tavern.

Krka National Park is one of the most fascinating regions of Croatia and one of the most popular places to visit in Dalmatia! The amazing river Krka carved a spectacular canyon of waterfalls on its 70-kilometers long journey from the foothills of Dinara mountain to the amazing estuary under the walls of historic Šibenik.
With your guide, enjoy a fascinating tour of authentically restored small stone houses, workshops, exhibits and watermills depicting how water was used to make village life possible and sustainable centuries ago. Afterwards, your professional guide will take you on a nature walk through the park to enjoy the rich diversity of flora and fauna across the network of forest paths and over wooden bridges. The walk around the waterfalls is incredible! You will walk the wooden bridges over the waterfalls and cascades to enjoy this beautiful site where river Krka flows to its end.
You continue to Skradin by boat. Ancient Scardona is still one of the most charming places in Dalmatia! This little town is one of the best preserved Dalmatian towns and is a marvellous find in all respects: from the traditional folk klapa singing that touches your heart to the roaring waterfalls of the Skradinski Buk!
After immersing in spectacular nature and small town charms, depart to the lovely UNESCO heritage town of Šibenik to visit its Old town. Šibenik is the oldest native Croatian city on the Adriatic coast and home to what many consider the most beautiful cathedral in Croatia – the Cathedral of St. James, built over an entire century by several successive architects and featuring some of the most remarkable architectural sculpture in Croatia.
