Prices in Split / Dinner for the family, food and drink in shops, cigarettes, alcohol

Split is a city mentioned in one breath right next to Dubrovnik and Trogir. A well-known place visited by tourists in Croatia. One of the most interesting issues that bother people going there – are the current prices in Split. Unfortunately, large and popular Croatian cities and resorts are considered simply expensive. Hence, such interest in various costs related to the stay, meals and sightseeing.

It is worth mentioning here that Split is not as expensive as the already legendary Dubrovnik, but it is also a bit more expensive than Trogir. People who travel on a budget are able to find accommodation here in a reasonable amount and eat for reasonable prices.
