Situated on the eastern shore of the Adriatic Sea, Split is Croatia’s second-largest city. The coastal city offers travelers historical attractions, Michelin-starred restaurants, UNESCO World Heritage sites and beautiful views of the Adriatic Sea.

GETTING THERE & AROUND
Split Airport, also known as Resnik Airport, serves Split. The international airport, about 11 miles from city center, completed an expansion project in 2019 to serve more passengers. Visitors may travel into downtown via bus, shuttle, taxi, rental car and rideshare services. Once downtown, it is easiest to get around on foot or by bus. Parking can be scarce, so while rental cars are convenient for travel outside the city, they might not prove the best option if you plan to spend most of your visit downtown. Ferry service provides access to nearby islands including Hvar, Brac and Vis.

Saudi Arabia Fosters Sustainable, Regenerative Tourism Along the Red Sea

 My first experience of Saudi Arabia's Red Sea coast now seems like ancient history. It was 1995, and I was visiting my ornithologist cousin and is wife. Getting into the kingdom wasn't easy; I needed sponsorship letters. and a pre-trip interview at the Saudi Arabian Embassy. When I arrived in the country, there was no tourist infrastructure. We toured by SUV ad often slept under the stars. Thus, one morning, we woke up on roll-out mattresses on a Red Sea beach 200 miles from Jeddah.
