We came upon the bell tower by accident in the central part of old Split. Only 15kn entrance fee (£1.50). Very steep climb up narrow stone staircase to start with up to level where the bells are. Try to go when the bell will chime - it's fun to see the bell working but also loud. From then on it's... More

When in old town, if you climb all the steps to the bell tower, from there the view of Split old town is the best. Is worth it to take some super nice pictures.

15kn to get up the bell tower but I think it was well worth it. Although it was quite crowded there was still enough time/space to have a look out each opening. Steep steps but not that difficult to climb. Worth it.

Although this one is not to compared with St Paul or other grand cathedrals, it is still a very beautiful and full of history. The climb is not too difficult but it's worth the efforts. A must see in Split!

The bell tower and cathedral in Split are a must see. 45kn/5euro for a ticket which gives access to the cathedral, bell tower, crypt, treasury and bapitstry/Temple of Jupiter. This is fantastic value with the all in one ticket. The cathedral itself is not like any other I have been to in Europe. It is small yet beautiful and obviously... More

After climbing the bell tower on a windy day, wearing flip-flops, I can truly say that croats don't fear heights. Only a thin rail separating you from certain death? Wow. Got so focused on don't slipping to a tomato juice death that didn't really pay attention. Anyway, the view is great, you can really grasp the size of the palace... More

I bought the full ticket that included everything (45 kn). I thought the cathedral was very beautiful and quite different, both in architecture and decor, from cathedrals in Western Europe. The bell tower was kind of a lot for me, as I generally do not like heights, and the open metal stairwell that starts about halfway up is pretty intense.... More

The Cathedral is beautiful, more than just a work of art, a spiritual place. And the view from the bell tower is spectacular.

The cathedral is small but beautiful. Bell tower: the first part of the stairs up are enclosed. About a third of the way up they become rickety, scary and open-aired. This second part is not ideal for young children, and may not be suitable for people who are afraid of heights or have vertigo. The combined ticket cost 45 Kunas.... More
