Diocletian’s Palace – a spectacular Roman downtown complex

Diocletian’s Palace is an ancient palace of Emperor Diocletian in Split, which is hard to miss while walking through Split. In fact, it is not a classic palace, that is, only one building, but the whole complex in the historical center. It is more than 1700 years old and is one of the best preserved Roman monuments in the world. It was listed on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in Europe back in 1979.

When he built it, probably not even Diocletian himself could have dreamed that 17 centuries later his mansion would be so full of life.


The Cathedral of Saint Domnius in the Peristyle Square

This Cathedral is known for many things, but what makes it really special is the fact that it is one of the oldest cathedrals and that it houses the mausoleum of the Roman emperor. Inside the walls of Diocletian’s Palace is the Split’s cathedral, which was originally built as Diocletian’s Mausoleum. It is almost as old as the palace, and its treasury is rich in art and antiquities that any history buff will enjoy.

The Cathedral of Saint Domnius is also recognizable for its tall and beautiful bell tower, which is a combination of Romanesque and Gothic architecture, whose construction began in the 13th century according to tradition. The 57-meter high bell tower offers a beautiful view of the city. The cathedral is located in the Peristyle Square which is a real attraction itself. It is surrounded by old buildings and the square is also popular as a theater scene.


This is one of the most famous places in Split. Officially called Republic Square, it is surrounded on three sides by neo-Renaissance buildings whose arches and red paint give it a particularly impressive appearance. Prokurative is the cultural center of the city outdoors and many interesting events take place there in the summer. The square has long been established as a great stage for cultural events, especially the festival of popular music, and numerous restaurants have made it a popular gathering place.


Split waterfront – a symbol of the city

You simply must not leave Split without having walked along famous Splitska Riva. The center of many events in the near and far Croatian history, this promenade by the sea is probably the most famous symbol of Split. Here you will best experience the energy of this impressive city.


Marjan – the green lungs of Split

Dive into the oasis of peace on Marjan away from the city bustle. Marjan is a hill and forest park located in the western part of the Split peninsula, and forms a smaller peninsula itself. This hill over the city is a favorite and well-known excursion destination for all those who want to take a break from the city hustle. Also, there are some spectacular views as soon as you get up.

If you are a cycling fan, you can go around it that way. The road to it starts from the Split Riva. Nearby is another green oasis that we recommend visiting – Sustipan.
