Split is a city in Central Dalmatia renowned for its incredibly mild climate all year round and historic centre where you can see Roman walls, squares, and temples. Due to its idyllic climate (2,800 hours of sunlight per year), and stunning architecture, the Croatian city has earned a reputation as one of prettiest locations in the Mediterranean. As you would expect of a predominantly summer destination, there are a larger number of seasonal flights to and from the major European cities, such as Rome, Paris, London, and Frankfurt. The low-cost carrier EasyJet operates a large number of routes during the holiday season and is a good option for cheap flights to the city. Obtaining a cheap flight to Split during the winter months might be more of a challenge as there is a limited number of carriers offering air travel. However, it is still possible to find low cost flights from London and some of the other airports around the UK.

Anyone looking for a flight to the island of Hvar or a flight to Bol must also fly to Split and take a ferry from there.
The city of Split has a visually striking centre built around the remains of the ancient Roman Palace of the Emperor Diocletian, a Roman structure that is a UNESCO world heritage site. Another must see for tourists is the St. Duje's Cathedral, which dates back 305 AD. The cathedral's bell-tower offers incredible panoramic views of the city and the nearby islands. The city is famed for its stunning natural beauty, and an abundance of great restaurants and wine cellars. In fact, the locals are so taken by the city's attractiveness that they refer to Split as the "Mediterranean flower". What's more, Split is the gateway for many beautiful islands such as Brac, Vis and Solta and so any travellers looking for a summer getaway to one of these should book a flight to Split. For those who would prefer to enjoy the Croatian beaches around Split without taking a ferry, the seaside resorts of Brela, Baska Voda and Sibenik are well worth investigating.
Following your flight to the city there are a couple of trusted options for getting to and from the airport. Bus number 37 runs to the city every 30 minutes or so and costs 16 kn, tickets are bought from the bus driver, but you should be aware that this bus will not bring you all the way to the historical centre. If you would prefer to take a taxi to the city once your flight has touched down, there is a large rank outside the main terminal building. A taxi to Split city centre (Diocletian's Palace) takes approximately 30 minutes and will cost about 270 kn, however you can arrange a lower price with the driver if you discuss the journey beforehand. Another option for transport to the city is the Pleso Transport Company shuttle bus that costs 33 kn for a single ticket. From the harbour in Split there are many ferry options for those looking for onward travel to the islands of Hvar, Silba and Solta.
