Le comitat de Split-Dalmacie couvre la partie S de la Dalmatie. Le chef-lieu est Split, deuxième ville de Croatie par sa population et c'est la plus grande ville Dalmate.

Split est située sur une péninsule entre la partie E du golfe de Kastela et le chenal de Split.
La ville est un passage obligé vers les nombreuses îles environnantes et la péninsule des Apennins. Elle est de ce fait une importante destination touristique.

Split est aussi l'une des plus anciennes villes de la région. On considère généralement que sa fondation remonte à 1700 ans, à l'époque de l'ancienne colonie grecque d'Aspalathos (6e siècle avant J.-C.).

Le parc naturel de Biokovo (seconde chaîne de montagne de la Croatie) est situé le long de la côte entre les rivières Cetina et Neretva. Cette zone côtière aux qualités naturelles uniques s'étend de Brela à Gradac sur une longueur d'environ 50 km. C'est une succession de plages, de forêts, de paysages cultivés sur un fond montagneux.

L'île de Hvar est la reine des îles dalmates. Elle est connue depuis l'antiquité en raison de son importante position stratégique. Elle offre de nombreux ports et mouillages avec les îles au large (Pakleni et O. Scedro).
Parmi les nombreux monuments à visiter on retiendra la Cathédrale, l’ancien Arsenal et les palais nobiliaires (styles gothiques et renaissance).

Makarska est une petite ville sur la côte adriatique à environ 60 km au sud de Split et 140 km au nord-ouest de Dubrovnik. Son centre touristique est situé sur une baie en forme de fer à cheval entre la montagne Biokovo et la mer Adriatique.

Situé à moins de 30 km à l'ouest de Split, Trogir est un port au bord de l'Adriatique. Son centre historique, classé au patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO depuis 1997 se trouve sur une toute petite ile située entre le continent et l'ile de Čiovo.
