We spent 4 nights in the beautiful city of Split in Croatia and loved every minute.
Split is Croatia’s second largest city in the Dalmatia region after Dubrovnik and home to 250k people.
The historical walled old town lays on the water’s edge and is a maze of pretty cobbled streets, beautiful buildings (including the famed Diocletian’s Palace), monuments and is also a great point from which to travel to the other islands along the coast.
In our guide to gay Split we will cover how we found the city as a gay couple, if a gay scene exists, share our experience of the gay beach, cover the best activities to do in (and from) Split, where to stay and practical tips – we highly recommend that you visit!
Is Split Gay Friendly?
As a country, Croatia is not particularly well known for being progressive and gay friendly compared to other countries in Europe such as Spain.
However when visiting the tourist hot spots, like the case in many countries, we felt very safe and had no trouble at all. We have been to Croatia twice with no issue.
In fact, our trip to Croatia was for a gay sailing trip which finished in Split (the trip goes each year) and we had a huge pride flag flying for the whole journey and never had an issue!
