The crowning glory or principal glory is the Diocletian Palace. Not because it is perfectly preserved and restored example of Roman architecture, but because its neither ofthese things. the real reason is that it is a richly complex and stimulating place that has been grafted from flotsam and jetsam of centuries of activity and occupation. A city within a city,... More

To my understanding, old Split is anything inside the walls of Diocletian's Palace. There are terrific medieval bell-towers and squares and a warren on twisty-turny streets. Also great flea markets outside the walls and a grand pedestrian street to the north of the Palace that is a must to walk down. Down miss relaxing like a native in the port... More

Split is fascinating … the way they have taken the walls of the ancient Diocletian Palace and incorporated them into structures used today was the highlight for me. We stopped for several days in Split following a lovely cruise from Dubrovnik with UgoCroatia. Overall, we couldn't have enjoyed Croatia more!

It's a very nice old city. We made a walking tour with a very nice guide and we also walked alone: ancient buildings, bars, shops, alleys and of course Diiocletian Palace.

I am sure if anyone is going to Split they will be visiting here! The first day we had set aside it was raining with huge wind gusts, but it was still stunning. Plus no one was around so we did not have to fight the crowd. :) We went back on a nicer day and spent more time. The... More

We visited in December during one of the coldest periods that most locals could remember in recent history. Even so it was spectacular to walk along the waterfront and the narrow walled passages inside the city. The old city architecture is amazing even as it has been blended with modern day updates. We were fortunate to witness what we believe... More

Loved old town of Split. Even though it was cold and rainy during our tour, it did not detour us from enjoying our guided walking tour. The contrast of historic architecture against more recent modern buildings makes it so charming. Lots of Roman ruins remain in this beautiful city.
