Island Solta, small island near Split, for all who are looking for peaceful holidays, apartments Solta, Middle Dalmatia, Croatia
Island Solta is a small island located near the town of Split, one of the most popular tourist destinations on the Adriatic. Solta is considered a Central Dalmatian island with a surface of 51,9km2. During socialism, it was unaffected by the mass tourism so the island preserved its natural and cultural heritage which is particularly appreciated today. The island of Solta is sufficiently undiscovered, but holds numerous charms despite the obvious lack of larger urban settlements. There are eight smaller settlements on the island: Grohote, Gornje Selo, Srednje Selo, Donje Selo, located within the island, as well as Stomorska, Necujam, Rogac and Maslinica located along the shore. The settlements situated within the island are older than the ones on the coast because the inhabitants wanted to protect themselves from numerous pirate robberies and devastations.
There are only 1500 inhabitants on the island during the year, but the island comes to life during summer, when tourists and locals who have left Solta, come for their holidays.
