Visit Split Synagogue, a piece of Jewish history tucked into the western walls of Diocletian's Palace within the old town. The synagogue ranks as the third oldest Sephardic synagogue in the world. Formed in 1728, the interior includes the Aron Ha-Kodesh: this ark and inner sanctuary faces Jerusalem and represents the most sacred place of worship, featuring a Classicist black and white marble construction. While the synagogue does not have a resident rabbi, the tight-knit Jewish community continually meets for Sabbath. Other highlights include a display of silverwork and a memorial to the victims of Nazi persecution.

Where to stay in Split

Split and its surrounding area boast an extensive system of private accommodations for rent, which range from simply furnished rooms to elegantly outfitted multi-room apartments. Many locals approach travelers at the main bus station with offers of available lodgings, but before you agree to anything, make sure you know the room's exact location in reference to the town center. For something more luxurious, check out the city's four- and five-star hotels, or consider an elegant villa a walk away from the major sights.
