Whether you arrive on business or leisure to Hotel Katarina during winter, and you decide to visit Split, do not think for a second that you will be greeted by a cold city with closed blinds or some old lady peeking occasionally because she has destroyed her vocal cords last summer behind the clotheslines, so now she keeps quiet and murmurs something to herself.

Quite the contrary, Split has many locations to visit in wintertime, as well as events that should not be missed.

Advent in Split

Although it is not very likely that it will snow, Split has something other cities do not have – the sea. Advent by the sea on the main promenade Riva has a special atmosphere. Its rich Advent program starts on November 30th and in December it includes performances of the famous celebrities from the Split Festival: the indestructible Đorđi Peruzović, the bel canto master Alen Nižetić and the excellent Giuliano accompanied by the band Diktatori, which will not leave you indifferent.

Mayors of Split Exhibition (1882-1918)

Very few people haven’t heard of the Velo Misto TV series, and most of us have watched it at least once or in numerous reruns. That is why we know that the mayors of Split, together with the town’s public services, have had a very difficult job over decades. The exhibition at the Split City Museum covers a period of more than a hundred years ago and points out an era when Split prospered significantly, while its special attraction is the everyday life collection.

25th Christmas Crusader Regatta

The sailing club Zenta has been organizing a traditional sailing event for a quarter of a century with the aim of marking the Christmas holidays. This year, 40 crusaders with over 150 yachtsmen are expected to perform, which is an attraction not only for the participants but also for all of those who will watch the regatta from the mainland or maybe from their boats at sea. The regatta takes place on December 14th and 15th and the organizers will announce the winner, while everybody enjoys some dried cod and wine.

Game of Thrones

The fans of one of the world’s most popular TV series, filmed in Split, should definitely visit the museum dedicated to the series (Bosanska 9) and the fan shop located right next to the museum. In addition, several travel agencies organize sightseeing tours of the original filming locations, from the Slaver’s Bay to the mystical Essos. And it is best to visit these locations in winter because – Winter is coming!
