Room Leon is a three star rated room on the bottom floor of a hundred and fifty year old house, the house originally was one floor and has had at least one famous person living in it, an artist called Ljubo Ivancic who was born in Split (1925 – 2003) and who later became an academician professor in Zagreb where he died. Since then the house has had a few more floors added, and now stands five storeys high. The Leon room has a large double bed, air-conditioning fully fitted shower room, tea/coffee making facility, TV, fitted cupboards and wardrobe and a gaming table for chess and drafts. There is limit parking in the street plus a car park nearby, the Dalmatian Palace; National Theatre, Riva (Sea Front) and Old Split are a few minute walk away.
The room in the centre of Split is in a street called Plinarska (which means gas), many years ago there was gas street lights. The street has retained the lamps that now have been up graded to electricity; they still seem to glow like the old gas lamps. It is a vibrant street with the bottom of the road in the centre of Split with its shops, bars, theatre, Palace and restaurants all within easy walking distant. The top of the road leads to a vast park full of trees and wild beaches. The park is called the Marjan, where you can rent bikes, swim, play tennis, soft ball, football or just sit in one of the cafes or restaurants, the beaches are pebbles with views of the distant hills a nice place to chill out in after touring the surrounding areas on the many tours on offer. Split itself has loads of history being over 1700 year old, there is the Diocletian Palace, museums, theatres, Roman ruins and miles of beaches all within walking distance of the room. To see the sights of the city there are walking tours, bus and coach tours, cycling tours and even Segway tours, for the surrounding areas there are coach trips, boat/yacht hire, mini cruises, canoeing and even rafting down a river. You can also rent a scooter or car and explore the sites yourself, nearby is an old Roman settlement of Solin, or another old town of Trogia which is surrounded by water but not an island so I am told? Talking of islands Croatia has over a thousand of which sixty plus are inhabited, the nearest island is Solta. Then there is Brac, Havar and Vis all are connected via ferry from the port of Split and run frequent services.
