A SPLIT BETWEEN HISTORIC AND MODERN

乘坐遊輪前往: Split, Croatia

Lying on the Adriatic Sea's eastern shore, Split is known for its terracotta roofs, whitewash buildings, palm tree-lined promenade and azure waters. Split has a long history, as it's home to Diocletian's Palace and the Cathedral of Saint Domnius, which were built for the Roman emperor in the 4th century. Always buzzing with tourists, Split balances its historic setting with a plethora of modern restaurants, bars and shops. Thanks to its Mediterranean climate, Split receives over 2,600 hours of sunshine every year.

Shopping

As opposed to most other destinations in the United Arab Emirates and in the rest of the Persian Gulf region, Sir Bani Yas isn't overflowing with malls.
