is the new shining star of Croatian touristic offer! It is the 2nd largest city of Croatia, populated with around 180,000 citizens. It lies on the Adriatic coast, central Dalmatia, on the Marjan peninsula. Autumn in Split is, in many ways, the most beautiful time of the year to visit Split, especially at the end of September and in October. It is the time when the summer heat is at its low (average T in October: 19 ͦC), and the main season is still on. Sometimes the northeast wind “Bura”, which blows intermittently, is bringing cold, but sunny weather. Therefore, before departure, check the weather forecast.

Split has good airline connections with major European cities, as well as the capital of Croatia – Zagreb and well-known touristic destination – Dubrovnik. In October, there are a number of low cost flights to Split. From the airport to Split, you can use the bus after each flight (price: 30 kn) which will drive you to the main bus station (railway station and ferry port). You can take a taxi (price: 250 kn (cash/card), max 4 persons) or rent a car as well. It is also easily accessible by car from Zagreb or Dubrovnik and by ferry from Italy by international line from Ancona (SEM-MARINA, Jadrolinija, SNAV). The main bus/railway station and ferry port are located less then 10 minutes walk along the coast from the conference hotel "Park" and just 10 minutes walk from the city center ("Riva", city promanade). Instructions to the conference hotel "Park" and the city centre ("Riva") will be available in September here.

IMPORTANT! Although Croatia is a full member of the European Union, national currency is the kuna not the euro (1 € = ~7.5 kuna). In most restaurants and shops it is possible to pay by credit card, but this is not the case in the coffee bars and at the famous “Pazar”- market.

History... The story of Split is already 17 centuries old, dating to the time the Roman Emperor Diocletian decided to build his Palace right on the peninsula near the great Roman city Salona. Diocletian Palace and the entire historical core of Split have been on the World Heritage UNESCO list ever since 1979, and not only for the extraordinary preservation of the Palace, but also because the Palace and its city continue to live a full life.

Split nowadays... An intraregional transport hub, the city is a link to numerous Adriatic islands, as Hvar, Brač or Vis. Surrounding areas around Split  are rich in cultural or tourism value. Nearby Split there are many fish processing factories, some of them have a hundred-year tradition.
