12 Churches Trail in Marjan Hill Park

Split, Croatia

Check local COVID-19 restrictions before booking

Experience hosted by Ivica

4 hours
Up to 8 people
Hosted in English, Croatian

What you'll do

We will explore Marjan forest park, one of the most important symbols of Split. This trail will take you to about a dozen small medieval churches scattered around Marjan as a spiritual circle of old Split. Also, we will explore hidden paths through pine forest, and learn about history of this place and its meaning for Split. It's also possible to go swimming on one of many rocky spots.
COVID-19 guideline: This tour is for smaller groups, families, or individuals. That makes them very safe in terms of distancing, and easier to control. Face masks are not mandatory in Croatia, but I usually wear it, especially indoor. Hand sanitizers and avoiding physical contact with guests is a must. Knowing Split (and other places where I give tours) very well allows me to avoid bigger crowds. Also, this tour is placed in more secluded places.
Other things to note
Most of churches are open only on certain holidays, and not available for visit.

Where you'll be

We will visit Marjan forest park, only minutes from Split city center, and hike on its forest paths. On our way we will tour a dozen of historical small churches, which were spiritual sanctuary for Split residents. Also, I will show you important heritage and natural landmarks, including several viewing points with views on Split, Dalmatian islands and surrounding area.

Wonderful tour! Be prepared to walk around the mountain and wear the right shoes. You'll witness the amazing nature Split has to offer as well as the rich history it contains. If it's warm you may swim. Luckily, Ivica will be there to guide you and share his expert knowledge of the region. He was an excellent tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable about many different things like the many churches you will visit, which made the tour meaningful and rich. He was thoughtful and asked me if the pace was alright and if I needed to take a break. If you desire a light adventure, hiking, a history tour, and breathtaking views, this tour is for you.

An insightful and engaging look at a dozen churches of significant historical importance around Marjan. It may not seem as flashy or dramatic as Diocletian's Palace, but I assure you, this is a must do if you love the fine subtleties of history. Ivica is a wonderful narrator that provides a great deal of context, which really breathes life into these old churches. One can't help feeling some vague sense of kinship across time & space with those that built these places. The hike itself was quite swell too; ambling along across Marjan was a rather lovely way to relieve stress. Quite frankly, the walk alone is enough reason to warrant booking this tour.

Ivica was really knowledgeable. Showed us places that only a local would have known and shared a lot of local information to help us with the rest of our trip. Really enjoyed ourselves especially the swim.

He is very good and open with people and I felt comfortable with him very quickly. he also went out of his way to let me know of events happening in Split the day before and informed me of the tourist board, which was very useful. hvala.
