Enjoy a promenade through 1700 years of fascinating history which turned Split from a one man’s palace to the present day bustling city.
The historic core of Split, its stunning Diocletian’s Palace, was originally built as the Roman Emperor’s retirement venue at the turn of the 4th century AD. But when the Slavs ransacked Roman Salona in the 7th century, the entire town fled to the palace, setting foundation for the wondrous city Split is today. Flourishing, creative, and with a distinct Dalmatian spirit, the heart of Split enthralls with sites like its Peristyle, the Golden and Silver Gates, the Cathedral and Jupiter’s Temple. Starting underground, in the Palace Cellars, make your way to the daylight, and witness local living happen as you stroll past.
