Part of it has since been converted into the Roman Catholic Cathedral of Split. It was fascinating to walk through what used to be the cellars. These are in a fantastic state of preservation and one reason for... More

Old Split is simply wonderful, lovely old buildings, small streets with hundreds of places to eat, drink, shop, look, wander. It has a really nice cosy feel about the place and my wife, friend and I felt very safe there. There were NO beggars which made a very pleasant change. Worth a visit.

Wonderful little streets and alleyways with a huge variety of bars, restaurants, shops and the like. Cheap 'fast food' stands are available through to very lovely and pretty expensive restaurants. Lots of locals give the place an authentic feel.
