Venue and Accommodation


Split is the largest city in Dalmatia, and the second largest city in Croatia, and represents the economic and cultural center of Dalmatia. It is located on the central part of the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea, bounded by the Kaštela Bay on the west and north, and the Brač Channel on the south, and spatially covers the greater part of the Split peninsula, which connects to the mainland on its northern and eastern sides.
The city center, located on the eastern side of the Marjan peninsula, which is now a protected park-forest, consists of the ancient Diocletian’s Palace from the 4th century (under UNESCO protection since October 26, 1979), which is a unique example in the world. Leaning against the ancient palace, along the southern seacoast towards the west, rests the medieval core. Around these two cores, which today form a whole, towards the west, east and north, many newer and even modern Split settlements have sprung up over the years.
On the northern coast of the Split peninsula is the City Stadium Poljud, which has been the home of the famous football club HNK Hajduk, the famous Split shipyard, which today is called Brodosplit and which has been Split’s largest economic entity for many years, as well as the port of Lora, where today it also houses the headquarters of the Croatian Navy.


The University of Split was officially established on 15 June 1974 when the units having already had an effect in their professional, scientific and teaching areas entered its structure.

As a predominant scientific and teaching public institution in the region the University of Split has expanded during the course of the past 45 years to include eleven Faculties, one Academy of Arts and four University Departments.

There are about 20,000 students enrolled in the University’s undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate programs.


The Faculty of Science in Split is one of the founders and one of the oldest faculties at the University of Split, and with approx. 900 students and 140 employees, it is one of the university’s larger departments.
