There’s something dreamy about the idea of living and working close to the sea. The calm vibe of being around nature is no doubt one of many reasons why many digital nomads are already living in Split, Croatia. If you’re thinking of becoming one of them, I’d say ‘go for it’; read on to find out more about what it’s really like to live in this beautiful country.

When most people think of Croatia they automatically jump to Dubrovnik, and while that’s certainly a beautiful spot, I think Split is better in so many ways. Yes, it can be crowded during the summer months, but it’s not on the same scale as Dubrovnik, where you can’t even move from June to August.

Can you imagine sitting on the beach with your laptop, or in a beachside cafe, with the blue of the ocean in front of you? That’s the image I had in my head when I decided to visit Split and stay for a few months to work; I wasn’t disappointed in any way, and I’d return in a heartbeat. If you’re thinking of the same thing, this digital nomad guide to Split will answer all your burning questions, and by the end, you’ll know where to go and what to do.

About Split

Split is one of Croatia’s most popular tourist hotspots, but it’s also very much about local life. As the country’s second-largest city, you can find everything here, including amazing beaches, history, local food, and culture. It’s also soaked in the sun during the summer months and remains pretty mild throughout the winter.

Located on the eastern coast of Croatia, the city is part of the Dalmatia region and is lapped by the blue and calm waters of the Adriatic Sea. History-wise, Split was founded by the Greeks and was formerly named Aspálathos, before its name was changed to Spalato by the Venetians. It’s famous for the opulent Diocletian’s Palace, which was completed in 305 CE.

Famous for its idyllic beaches, sunsets, history, and cobbled Old Town, life in Split is a variation of old and new. Nightlife is vibrant and varied, so you can always find something to suit your mood, and as far as Dalmatian food goes, you’re looking at the freshest ingredients possible, with amazing flavors.
