you can feel the history

you can just get lost in the sense of history, the cellars are well worth a visit, lots of little alley ways to loose all sense of direction, just explore

Such a beautiful experience walking through Split and coming across the palace. There are small shops, cafes and musicians throughout. Split was one of our favorite places. The people are so friendly and you also get great value for your Euro here.

Oh how Diocletian must be rolling in his grave with his palace being a place of Christian worship. It's a wonderful piece of history and has a number of surround areas for foodies and souvenir shopping. A few set pieces of Game of Thrones were filed here, so it's a must see place for any GoT fan.

We thoroughly enjoyed this walk through time in this old city and palace which is so clean and incredible. Every turn has so many points of interest to command your attention. The bell tower is also a must, even if you only go half way up like me!

Come and see it, it 's hard to describe it! :-) Not the most beautiful cathedrale in Croatia, but very special and unique... Totally different church from all other churches in this area. Symbol of Split! Combination of lot of styles and old cultures...a lot of details to check!

You can't go to Split without seeing it, so it almost seems silly to write a review. It IS the downtown. Easy to walk around, built upon itself over the years. A true treasure.

First of all Split is a big city, very industrial on the drive in. Very different than the quaint seaside towns we visited in Croatia. Once you get past it all though (and parked, which is a bit challenging), at the very heart, is Diocletian's Palace. This is an impressive place, and it's interesting to peruse the streets. I found... More

We had a great time exploring the back streets as well as the squares and courtyards that evoked the classical times through the remains of the architecture. This is such a cool roman ruin! It was never really abandoned, and sort of half way transformed into a small city, while still being a roman palace. It is like nothing else!... More

A must when visiting Split, a walk around the old historical area plenty of sights to enjoy whilst walking here free too unless you want to go into the museums or up the bell tower, many cafes to take the weight of your feet.
