Sunday is currently, on average, the cheapest day to fly to Split. Flying on Friday will result in higher flight prices.
Second-largest of Croatia’s cities and largest in the Dalmatia region, Split is also one of the oldest cities in the region at more than 1,700 years old. The city’s roots lie in the foundation of Roman emperor Diocletian’s palace in what is today the heart of the city’s old town, but also in the earlier Ancient Greek colony of Aspalathos. Visitors arriving on cheap flights to Split will discover a city rich in history and culture, a warm and welcoming destination as ideal for sightseeing as it is for soaking up sun on the beach.
As well as its abundance of historic treasures, splendid beaches, and the outstanding natural beauty of the surrounding countryside, Split has also become popular for its nightlife. Much of this centres on the Bacvice entertainment complex on the waterfront or in the old town. The city is also an excellent base from which to reach nearby islands Hvar and Brac, noted for their lively club and bar scenes which peak during the summer months.
Split is generally subject to hot and sunny summers, with July and August generally being the warmest at an average of 30 degrees and also the driest. Winters are generally mild, with the months of December, January and February being the coolest at around 11 degrees. The months of November to January are usually subject to the most rainfall.
The summer months of July and August are Split’s busiest in terms of tourism as this is when weather is warmest and driest. This is reflected in travel and accommodation prices and availability.
The winter months are Split’s quietest in terms of tourism, as this is when the weather is coolest, although often still very pleasant. The pre-peak months from April to June, as well as post-peak September and October are both good times to visit, as the weather may be almost as warm as it is in the peak season but peak crowding is yet to occur.
