Split is also one of the oldest cities in the area and is traditionally considered just over 1,700 years old.
The new motorway, integrating Split with the rest of the Croatian freeway network, has helped stimulate economic production and investment, with new businesses being built in the city center and its wildly sprawling suburbs.
