Absolutely loved the views, hated every minute of the climb! Well worth putting yourself through the terror though. Particularly scary when people pass you on the way up/down and could be better managed in that respect. But if a guy with an artificial leg could do it before me, anyone can! Don't look down. Cathedral is stunning inside, small but... More

When I visit I like the scenaries and when it comes to high towers I'm the first one going up while my wife waits for me with a cold water bottle - Well Splits bell tower with its narrow steep steps did not strike me, the view was just ok and interrupted by many pillars, I'm not saying is bad,...

Nice to view but do not recommend making the climb. It's very unsafe with old rusted steps, low railings and narrow passages. There are no staff to ensure your safety as 100s of tourists wander about.

Beautiful cathedral with a rich history. Special experience to climb up to the bell tower, offering a beautiful view of the town, the red roofs, the harbor, Marjan hill ... a must ...

Both the cathedral and the bell tower were a bit small and underwhelming really. Having said that, entrance was cheap and the top of the bell tower did offer some beautiful views.

The view from the tower is beautiful, don't miss this visit ! It's really worth the climb in the steep and narrow stairs. Be careful : some steps are much higher than other ones !

If you visit Split without visiting bell tower and cathedral then you are doing everything wrong. Cathedral by itself is oldest Catholic cathedral in the world that remains in use in its original structure. The structure itself, built in AD 305 as the Mausoleum of Diocletian, is the second oldest structure used by any Christian Cathedral. In 1427 a chapel... More

A beautiful view from the top of the tower. But if you happen to go on a day when it is crowded like the day we did. It bottlenecked On the very narrow stairwell on the way down. Just be patient and laugh it off as we did. The view was especially beautiful at sunset.

The Bell tower is definitely worth the climb, it provides beautiful views over the city of Split. The downside is that it can be really busy in summer and there is only one way up and down. The cathedral is nothing special, nice to see it but if you compare it to some of the bigger cathedrals in the world,... More
