About the City of Split The story of Split is dating all the way back to the times of the Roman Emperor Diocletian who decided this was a perfect location to build a palace to spend the last years of his life - right on the peninsula close to the great Roman city of Salona. The Palace and the entire historical core of Split have been on the World Heritage UNESCO list since 1979. The level of preservation of the Palace as well as of all of the subsequent historical layers is just extraordinary. A walk through the ancient streets of this exceptional city is a walk through time where you can enjoy some of the greatest examples of ancient architecture like the Peristyle, Diocletian's Mausoleum, the Jupiter's Temple (St. John's Church), the Romanesque Church and Gothic Palace and the Renaissance portals of the noblemen’s palaces and houses. Split is widely known for its casual vibe, best represented by the relaxing atmosphere in the area of Riva, the main waterfront promenade, where local people as well as an ever-growing number of visitors, tend to spend hours drinking coffee and discuss everyday life whenever it's sunny. The fish and vegetable markets are just around the corner from Riva, so you can you can easily connect these two exciting activities! The city also boasts an amazing vine and gourmet offer in various restaurants as well as numerous cultural and entertaining events like the Ultra Music festival, the Mediterranean Film festival Split and the Split Summer Festival featuring a variety of magnificent theater and music performances by the most notable domestic and foreign artists. Another interesting fact about the city is that it is the home of dozens of Olympic medal winners, which is something that only a few other cities in the world can be proud of, especially when you take into account that the city has only about 200.000 inhabitants! Buying Real Estate in Split Thanks to all these advantages, buying real estate in Split has become increasingly popular among foreign buyers some 20 years ago. The prices were then much lower and with time they grow significantly, reaching up to 3.000 € / sqm by 2006 for a traditional stone house or an apartment for sale in Split old town in need for renovation. During the next few years the Split real estate market was in the phase of stagnation and then, in order to fight those unrealistic prices, the sellers that were more motivated started selling below the asking prices. The prices today are going up again since the demand for properties to buy in Split is higher than the offer. The buyers coming from abroad are usually looking for a second home or an investment property for rental business; there is also a growing number of Croatians moving back home from foreign countries and looking for a warm and cozy home to spend their retirement.
