Honestly speaking parking in Split Croatia can be a big enigma and sometimes frustrating venture for visitors arriving in Split either by their own or rented car.

This is particularity tricky in high season when the parking place is more unavailable because of crowding and increased traffic, predominately towards the Split harbor.

From security point Split is considered as very safe city with minimum chances that your car will be stolen.

Around the old historical part of Split (only in second and third parking zones) you can find a lot of ‘street parking’ where you can leave your car during working hours (from 07:00 to 19:00) but paying a fee using the automatic machine. The hourly fee depends on a parking zone.

Do not forget to expose a receipt of paid parking in a visible place in the car (usually front dashboard above the steering wheel). Outside the work time, the parking is free.

Try NOT to park in dark and deserted areas because this will definitely increase the possibility of car robbery. This is important, especially if you are planning to leave your vehicle for a longer period of time. In that case I strongly recommend that you use a pay parking or a garage.

For passengers arriving in Split and intend to catch a ferry connection to one of the islands of Central Dalmatia, most commonly question is ‘Where to park the car more closer to the ferry terminal?’

Are you traveling by boat, train or bus? Parking “Željeznička stanica” (Railway station), is the nearest place for your vehicle.

Parking is located in the center of town, it is only 200 m from the old city.

It is connected with the bus and train station and located only 50 m from the ferry.

This parking is the closest, safest place and gives you the best price guarantee for parking your car. The parking lot also offers parking spots for buses and campers.

Take my advice and use this safe parking in Split if you don’t want the towing service to take away your vehicle.

In case there is no free space at the harbor parking, another nearby parking place is in Bijankinijeva street (where I’ve stayed for almost 10 years). The street is only 900 meters from the Split bus station in the harbor. This map is showing how to reach this street where parking costs €7 a day.
