THE ST LUKE EXPERIENCE
In the historic city of Split, in culturally rich Croatia, sits a small but elegant hotel, itself drenched in history.
It offers something that arguably no other hotel in Croatia can offer. The chance not just to visit a country, to rent a room. But to genuinely feel like you are experiencing another culture, another way of life. You won’t just check in. You’ll meet Branimir, the manager. And under those freemasonry stonework walls, opposite the church of St Luke and near to the Roman Emperor Diocletian’s palace, he will regale you with stories of Croatian life and culture. He may tell you the history of the hotel itself, starting out as a simple fisherman’s hut some 350 years ago.
Branimir himself sums up the essence of Split; friendly, passionate and keen to talk to people of different cultures. He may suggest you take a walk along the famous Riva promenade, or even a hike up the nearby Marjan hill or a drive to the historic town of Trogir. Or perhaps where to enjoy Croatian cuisine in a host of different restaurants. Wherever the conversation goes, the evening will go well. St Luke’s is the difference between feeling like a tourist and feeling like you belong. And when you get back from visiting Split’s many experiences, you’ll feel like you are coming home.
