We will explore Marjan forest park, one of the most important symbols of Split. This trail will take you to about a dozen small medieval churches scattered around Marjan as a spiritual circle of old Split. Also, we will explore hidden paths through pine forest, and learn about history of this place and its meaning for Split. It's also possible to go swimming on one of many rocky spots
My name is Ivica, and I am a journalist, blogger, and a licensed tour guide. I was born and raised in Split, Croatia, and am deeply in love with my town and its spirit. Marjan is one of my favorite spots in Split where I like to spend time walking, biking or just exploring its paths and secrets.
We will visit Marjan forest park, only minutes from Split city center, and hike on its forest paths. On our way we will tour a dozen of historical small churches, which were spiritual sanctuary for Split residents. Also, I will show you important heritage and natural landmarks, including several viewing points with views on Split, Dalmatian islands and surrounding area.
Most of churches are open only on certain holidays, and not available for visit. Due to forest cleaning in March and April some parts of the park might be closed or with limited access
