Where Should I go: Cadiz or Split?

Cadiz

Cadiz is a port city in the southwestern area of Spain. It is the oldest continuously inhabited city in Spain, and one of the oldest in western Europe, which means it has a lot of historic charm and many historic landmarks. Cadiz stands on a peninsula jutting out into a bay which is a small slice of land, and is almost entirely surrounded by water. The landscape has a lot of natural beauty, and there is plenty to see and do. Because of its long history, some areas of the city are very old and these sections differ drastically from the newer more modern areas; where the older neighborhoods have narrow, winding streets, the newer areas have wide avenues with modern buildings. Unlike most other ports of its size it seems immediately relaxed and easy going, not at all threatening, even at night. The city has a great tradition of liberalism and tolerance making it a very welcoming destination.

Split

Spit is a historic city in Central Dalmatia with many opportunities to glimpse its fascinating past in its historic city center. Centuries ago the city grew up around a Diocletian palace that was used as refuge by the locals.

Today, as you wander around the historic center, you can see the remains of the Roman walls, temples, and squares. Despite it's appeal to tourists, Split is much more than just a tourist destination. It is larger than you might initially realize and it spreads well beyond the historic center. There is a population of about 300,000 in the larger area and it is an economic center for the region.

Split is also a must-visit on a trip through the country. It can easily fit in to a one-week itinerary of Croatia, or many other routes, as it's centrally located and very accessible.

Split has a beautiful climate with mild winters, countless sunny days, and a generally pleasant temperature. As such, there are many opportunities to enjoy yourself outdoors, whether by participating in sports or walking around the city's quaint streets. Winters in Split are also quite mild, but there may be one snowy day, on average, every year. This rare snowfall can cause a significant disruption in the flow of traffic.
