Magnificent Roman city.
Split is really a timeless city. Going for a stroll in the city and getting lost is the best way to explore it. If you are a fan of History you cannot miss this city with more than 2000 years of age, standing at the crossroads of civilisations.
The Diocletian palace is one of the best preserved monuments of the Roman architecture in the world. The old town is still located on the inside of the palace enclosure, combining Roman temples, restaurants and shops.
If you want to exit the city for a little while Park Šuma Marjan is your best option. 350 stairs to have a great panoramic view above the city.
At first it was “only” the mausoleum of Diocletian and was converted into a church in 650 to become the Cathedral of Saint Domnius.
Entry fee : 45 HKR Cathedral + Belfry
Hours : 8am-7pm Mon-Sat, 12.30-6.30pm Sun
Just after the peristil is the Temple of Jupiter. Ornamented by the sphinxes Diocletian brought from Egypt. It was turned into Baptistery in the 7th century and still has its original barrel-vaulted ceiling.
The crypt below the Cathedral (Diocletian’s old mausoleum) was turned into a chapel.
Entry Fee : 25 HKR = Crypt and Temple of Jupiter.
