Imagine pine forests interspersed with small stone churches, awe-inspiring lookouts and a handful of old cave dwellings, and you'll start to picture Split's Marjan Forest Park. To reach the park's highest point, travelers will need to ascend 300-some stairs, but the view from the hilltop is worth all the burn. From the summit, you'll find several trails weaving throughout the forest.
Visitors say that Marjan Forest Park offers a great vantage of Split while providing a breather from all the city's tourists, who cluster around Diocletian's Palace, especially during peak season.
Marjan Forest Park sprawls over a jutting peninsula, just a couple miles west of Diocletian's Palace. If you'd rather cycle through Marjan Forest Park, you can rent bikes at the park's northern entrance (Marjanska Vrata). The park is free to access 24/7. You'll find a small cafe about halfway up the summit, as well as several benches along the way. To learn more, visit the City of Split's website.
