Although a summer-oriented destination, Split offers plenty of entertainment all year round. The cultural season is centred on the Split Festival and Split Film Festival, both staged in summer, but there should be enough culture, sport and general leisure activity to amuse most visitors all year round. Some clubs, restaurants and hotels are summer-only and/or take a break in January.
