Split, Croatia. Split, a town on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, is known for its beaches and the fortresslike complex at its center, Diocletian's Palace, erected by the Roman emperor in the 4th century. Once home to thousands, its sprawling remains include more than 200 buildings. Within its white stone walls and under its courtyards and galleries are shops, bars, cafes, cathedrals, hotels and several houses.
After going and visiting the palace walls in Split, Croatia, venture out to the Bacvice Beach, where you can enjoy the local bars, sunbathe, and play "picigin" (a game with a ball which is played in the shoal).
