School Music Tour to Split
Situated on Croatia’s Adriatic coast, Split is a congenial city with a characterful old town. The city has a Roman heritage, and the Emperor Diocletian who was born in Dalmatia, built a palace here. More recently, a number of locations have been used as settings for the Game of Throne’s series including the Fortress of Kliss and the Cathedral in Sibenik which is also one of our possible performance venues. There are numerous excursions to enjoy such as the beautiful island town of Trogir, and opportunities for boat trips and beach time.
