Split is football crazy – You have been warned

Football, or soccer as you may know it, is the most popular sport in the world, and its loyal fans are renowned for their passion and dedication to their teams. While this is true of most sports, the passions in Split run deep, and sometimes when alcohol is introduced, the passion spills over and translates into aggression. If you are caught in the wrong place at the wrong time you might end up in the crossfire.  Before your trip takes some time to check out the league schedule and plan your accommodation and itinerary carefully so that you avoid danger areas.

Avoid the temptation of striptease bars

For many tourists, a holiday without a trip to a local strip bar is not a holiday at all. Europe is renowned for beautiful people and a liberal atmosphere, but in Split, your local strip bar may prove to be the end of your holiday. Many of the bars are fronts for petty theft, drug deals, and solicitation, so it is best for you to rather steer clear. IF you insist on sampling these kinds of sights, then ask for advice from a concierge at a local hotel – you don’t need to stay in the hotel to get some information! This is safer than risking a roughing up and a robbery, or a night in a Croatian prison (or something more serious).

And while it is true that the summer in Split is an incredible sight that you need to be seen to be believed, the fact is that the winters get very chilly. Snow is a guarantee at least once or twice in winter, and because it is rare, transport stops, so you should plan.

Croatia, the new Must See destination

In the past, Croatia was a favourite holiday destination of royalty on the Adriatic Sea, with Italy only a few hundred kilometres away. Until about 20 years ago, most people didn’t really know where Croatia was. It was a lost place in Cold War Europe, part of “the eastern bloc”, and that was roughly the extent of Western knowledge for nearly four generations. Now, Croatia has become a true tourist destination again. All you need to see this extraordinary place is a good instinct for the unique travel experience, some good travel insurance and an appreciation for one of Europe’s lost worlds.
