SPLIT - GETTING AROUND

On foot

Split is a great walking city for those wanting to explore. Split rises in elevation approximately 150 feet within the first quarter mile of the coastline, meaning there are some changes in elevation, but not too many steep inclines. For hiking trails up local hills and mountains, consider taking one of two routes up Marjan Hill, west of Split`s city center, or the routes up Mosor, about ten miles northeast of town. For those wanting to stay closer to town, the walk between the ACI Marina Split, Diocletian`s Palace and Riva, and Split ferry terminal, is scenic, fairly flat, and with minimal incline.

By taxi and rideshare

Taxis are not usually flagged down from the street. It is more customary for travelers to queue for a taxi at taxi ranks throughout the city. There are taxi ranks at Split train station, in Franjo Tudjman Square on the western end of Riva, on Marmontova ulica one block from the Croatian National Theatre in Split, and in front of the Pazar on Hrvojeva.

There is no one uniform taxicab color; you will note that they are taxis simply by the taxi sign and the official taxi numbers on the cars themselves. If you are traveling outside of Split, you will negotiate the fare with your driver in advance. Otherwise, you will note that fares begin at 20 kuna, with an extra 10 kuna added for every 0.6 miles traveled. Prices rise by at least 25% between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. and on weekends and holidays. Expect to pay somewhere in the range of 100-125 kuna for a taxi from Split Airport to Trogir, and 250-350 kuna for a ride from Split Airport to Split.

Ridesharing services such as Uber, and the Croatia-specific UberBOAT, are also available in Split. The UberBOAT option can be scheduled directly from Split Airport or the Split city center.

By bicycle

With many roads and paths along the water, Split offers a few different options as far as biking paths are concerned. If you want to ride in the city and parallel the waterfront, that is fairly easy to arrange, as are biking paths on Marjan Hill west of the city center. No matter the skill level, there is a cycling excursion that you can do, should you choose to.

By bus

Bus service in Split and environs is operated by the private company Promet Split d.o.o. (www.promet-split.hr/en). Twenty-two local lines and about as many suburban lines connect Split with the rest of Dalmatia. Out of all the bus lines you will encounter, Suburban Route #37 (to Kastela and Split Airport) will be the one you will have the highest probability of traveling. City Routes #12 and #21 connect the Church of St. Francis with Marjan and Bene Beach. City Routes #2, #9, #10, and #15 connects the Split bus station with Bacvice and areas east of the Split Old Town. Tickets that fall in Zone 1 (within two miles of Split`s Old Town) cost approximately 10 kuna each way.

Information on Suburban Route #37: You will be taken from Split Airport to Split`s Sukoisan bus station, a half-mile north of the Gregory of Nin statue and Strossmayer Park, on Licka ulica. Likewise, you will be taken from this station, and not the one in the center of town, to go to the airport. Tickets are 20 kuna and can be bought on-board from the driver. Buses leave the airport every 20-50 minutes from 4 a.m. to 11:45 p.m., with a more limited schedule on weekends and holidays. For more information, visit www.promet-split.hr/en/bus-line-37.

By car

A car is not particularly recommended if you want to explore the area in and around Split, as nearly all points of interest can be reached either on foot or by public or private transportation. Keep in mind that the Old Town and the areas just to the west are all pedestrian-only zones, so if you did bring a car, you would have to park on the outskirts either in one of six major pay parking lots, or on the street paying for the time and space from a meter. If you do decide to rent a car and book it with TripMasters, you will be picking it up at Split airport when you enter Croatia, and not in Split proper. If you do wait to rent a car until arriving in Split, many companies are represented on Trumbiceva obala, west of the Riva and Republic Square.
