A Walk Up Marjan Hill in Split
Every time we visit Split, we take a walk up Marjan Hill. It’s a popular place for walkers and the view of the city from there is awesome.
Unfortunately, the weather was not very good while we were in Split, so we only managed to venture up the hill once during out two-week stay.
There are a few ways to get to Marjan Hill, so just check Google Maps and see which suits you best. We usually head up one way and back down another way.
Once you get the main entrance to the park you’ll see a popular café. We always stop here, as we can enjoy a coffee with a view. Prices are very reasonable compared to cafés along The Riva.
Once you leave the café and head up the hill, the first section is a concrete path that’s easy to walk. It has agave growing along both sides of this path.
If you’re lucky, you may also spot a few cats just like the two above that are relaxing in the sun.
If you keeping walking up the hill, you’ll come across the small 13th century church of St. Nicholas. The church is dedicated to St. Nicholas, a favorite saint of fishermen.
There are many paths leading off the main one, so there is plenty to explore.
If you continue along the main path, you’ll eventually come to another church and some hermitage caves. We didn’t get that far this time, but have visited a few times in the past.
Tomorrow, we’re headed from Split to Supetar on the ferry. Above is a view from Marjan Hill of the ferry heading towards Supetar, which you can just about see ahead of the ferry.
I can highly recommend a walk up Marjan Hill. You won’t regret it.

I can also highly recommend spending a week or longer in Split. We visit every time we’re in Europe.
