Why study in Split?
The history of Split dates 1700 years back, when it was chosen by the Roman emperor Diocletian as a place to build his palace resort. Diocletian’s Palace is protected by UNESCO and it is a unique example in the world. The town is extremely attractive for tourists and it has more than 2700 hours of sunshine a year. The people of Split always say that Split is the most beautiful city and that its women are the most beautiful women in the world, and many tourists tend to agree after taking a walk around its streets and alleys. The city is located in the warmest part of the Mediterranean, at the foot of the Marjan forest, with beautiful pebble beaches around it. It is rich in tourist and gastronomic offer, as well as sporting and cultural events.
