Typical street in the Old Town of Split, Croatia features glistening white marble paving stones and buildings of white local limestone. Sidewalk cafes are a common feature on nearly every street in the Old Town, and many of the ancient buildings have been converted to shops. This particular street is located next to the fish market, where local fishermen sell their fresh catch from 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day.

Dubrovnik is beautiful , crowds cannot spoil its beauty. I would suggest staying in the beautiful town of Cavtat 20 mins down the road if you are going during peak season of 5th July to 25th August. It is a gem and you will not regret it.
Crowds unfortunately are part of all the great cities in the world ie Venice, Dubrovnik, Santorini during peak season. I for one get a little annoyed as we can all travel outside the main tourist seasons but when we choose not to we complain about crowds when we too are part of the problem.
I am in live with Croatia is a place with alot of history but with class
I was in Split and Dubrovnik briefly a few years ago. I’d read much more about Dubrovnik. It seemed to be the most popular place to visit, or perhaps was more active in advertising to tourists. I found Split more interesting. The palace alone was fascinating. There is so much history to absorb in Croatia. Hope to get back there soon. Thanks for the picture to remind me how lovely Split was.
Hi Gina: Unfortunately, I ran out of time before I could get to Dubrovnik, but everyone has told me it is very touristy, crowded, and expensive. I guess I’ll see, as I’m going this year, but I suspect that, like you, I’ll still prefer Split.
