Drive beyond Split Airport

Arriving at Split Airport is a great option for a car hire as Split is in the perfect position for further travelling. From Split, you can decide to cruise among the Dalmatian islands or you can choose a coastline sightseeing road by taking the old Adriatic “magistrala” road. You can choose to either go north towards the Istrian coast or to the south towards Dubrovnik. You can visit Dubrovnik by car, however, a part of the road stretches across the Bosnia and Herzegovina territory, so check your car hire agency’s terms of use to see if crossing the Croatian border is allowed. If not, another possibility is to take a car ferry to Korčula island and perhaps stay the night there, and continue your journey the day after from the island via ferry to Orebić, which is a town approximately 70 miles/112 km away from Dubrovnik.

Commercial flights to Split started in 1931 with the Yugoslavian airline connecting Zagreb and Belgrade. The current Split Airport was opened in 1966 but several extensions followed to handle the increasing traffic and industry demands. Split Airport was frozen regarding the civilian passengers as the war in the former Yugoslavia broke out. Traffic began to rise again after 1995 and today, Split airport is under development. Work is expected to be finished in 2019 and include a reconstruction of the existing terminal and construction of a new one.
