A unique city with a fitting name: Split is literally split between guarding its unique history and way of life and opening up to the inquisitive world. Exploring Split means being enthralled with the locals, or amazed by how a Roman Emperor’s palace turned into a bustling city, or even smitten by the sea and mountains surrounding it. Or any combination of these on our Split photo tour.
Spending time just in the UNESCO-protected Diocletian’s Palace is an excellent choice. Narrow streets, broad basements, layers of history and culture, fine dining and lively atmosphere will feed any photographers camera with attractive images. But do go beyond, climb the Marjan hill offering excellent lookouts over the city and port, nearby islands and chain of mountains.
Split is a bustling Mediterranean port, with its own twists and stories. Out of tourist season, the architecture of the city core stands out with less crowds on the streets, but it is those crowds that generate in season the color, the action, the strife many photographers look for.
Join our local guides and let them immerse you in what Split is really about.
Required experience and equipment
All levels of photography experience are welcome, the tour leader will adapt to your knowledge and needs. Bring comfortable shoes for walking. Stone surfaces may be slippery if wet. Your camera bag, tripod and any other equipment should not be too heavy or large. Avoid rolling photo bags, use smaller backpacks. Polarizing and ND filters, as well as macro lenses are welcome, but not necessary. Starting time can be agreed with guests.
Milan Šabić’s close bond to photography began in his school days when he was thrilled by the waterfalls at Plitvice Lakes, spending over a hundred rather expensive film images just on them. His interest in photography developed into something more during his time at the Art Academy and led him to participate in many exhibitions and undertake professional work. His experience in various types of photography – sport, aerial, wedding, landscape – will meet all your needs on this journey.
Any day of the year, on request.
Your expert photographer guide will show you the scenic spots, but also any gems along the way hidden from most visitors. You can rush through the sights, or take it slow and enjoy the pulse of the city.
Taking full advantage of its milder climate, Split is open for visits all year long. The colder Bura winds in wintertime clean up the streets and atmosphere, so colors are brighter and visibility is high. The pine forests offer year-round green cover, while the sea provides the blue tones. By April, many flowers are in bloom. The tourism season kicks in in May, with many seasonal services opening up. July and August are traditionally the busiest times, so if looking to avoid the crowds, plan around these months. Autumn in Split is similar to spring, offering plenty for any visitor.
Price is set at 85€ per group for a two-hour tour of the Palace and nearby areas, payable at the end of the tour. The tour can be extended beyond the first two hours at a discounted rate. Max number of persons in group is 5.
