What to expect

Marjan hill is considered to be the green lungs of Split. Spend a day in nature and explore the natural scenery of Croatia!

Your hiking tour will start right in the center of Split, at the entrance to the Diocletian's Palace cellars. Follow the guide through the narrow streets of the old peasants' district of Varoš to the first viewpoint, next to the 16th-century Jewish cemetery. From there, you will continue through the pine tree forest, passing an old abandoned zoo (and favorite picnic spot for the people of Split), all the way to the top of the hill. Enjoy the view over the entire city and the mountains surrounding it. If you are lucky, you will also be able to spot the central Adriatic islands! After a brief pause, continue the hike to an old hermitage of Saint Jerome. After a photo stop, you will go down the hill past the churches of Our Lady of Bethlehem and Saint Nicholas back to the old town.

The distance covered is about 6 km. The highest point reached is 178 m above sea level. The terrain is mostly gravel, with some concrete and asphalt. Elevation gain/loss is approx. 300 m.
