Split has been known as a top destination of Croatia in recent years. As we already know, coronavirus changed everything in 2020, so the picture of this amazing Dalmatian town is different.
I took a walk around the town on November 18, 2020, to see how does it look like and if there were any visitors.

Usually, during November Split is visited by groups of people who make tours around Croatia. Especially Koreans and Chinese enjoyed that kind of sightseeing. Unfortunately, this year it's a real rarity to see any Asian walking around Croatian towns.

Most of the people you can see on the streets of Split these days are locals, which is quite expected considering the epidemiological situation. However, while walking through Split Riva and the old town, I could notice many foreigners from the EU as well. Especially young people are not feeling discouraged to travel despite the pandemic.

Split has been known for its Diocletian's Palace, the most acclaimed attraction in the old town. With the reduced number of visitors, the Palace looks even more appealing. Whenever I come across the glorious Split Peristyle square inside the palace, I stay there and enjoy it's appearance, despite the fact I've been watching it for a hundred times.

The answer is YES. Split is even more beautiful these days with a reduced number of people outside.

As of November 18, 2020, Croatia did not impose lockdown, meaning people are free to move as they want.

For EU visitors, Croatia did not impose any travel restrictions. They can enter Croatia for any reason whatsoever. Non-EU citizens may be asked to show proof of reserved accommodation in Croatia
