After Silver, don't forget Brass, Iron and Golden Gates!

The Silver gate is nicer than the Brass/south gate where most people enter and leads to the produce market. The palace being 'only' 600x600 feet, it is easy to see the Golden gate... read more

As you explore the palace you'll want to visit each of the gates. If for no other reason then to get the lay of the land and the area encompassed by the walls. None of the gates are that spectacular and you probably won't think anything of it when you see it. But still worth taking a look as you... More

The Silver gate is nicer than the Brass/south gate where most people enter and leads to the produce market. The palace being 'only' 600x600 feet, it is easy to see the Golden gate (north) leading to the mightly statue of Nin and the Iron gate (west) which leads to the people square and the fish market.

You can tell just by looking at the stone on this gate that it's old. The whole area of old Split is really interesting.

All four of the gates are interesting and different. Some lit at night make them even more enticing. The windows on the top of this one make it even more special.

Old Town Split is not very large so seeing all of the Gates will not be time consuming. Getting a map at the Tourist Office will make finding the Gates quite easy. Each Gate is different so take a walk and compare. Exiting the Silver Gate one will find the open air market with vendors selling fruits, vegetables and flowers.... More

The silver gate is the Eastern entrance to the Palace and it is quite grand with its niches and arches still mostly intact. Most of the gate was actually walled up for centuries and it wasn't until WW2 when a couple of Allied bombs fell nearby that the current look was revealed. From the steps down to the street you...

All four gates of the Diocletian palace are spectatular, impressive and breathtaking. If you are going to explore the palace, I think this is a nice place to start! ;) P.S. I adore to buy the lavender souvenirs here!

The Palace complex has four gates, Brass down by the water, go directly through the palace in a northerly direction and you get to Golden Gate up near Grgur Ninski statue. On the easterly side of the palace is the Silver Gate and on the opposite side of the palace is the westerly Iron Gate. Enjoy and compare.

well maintained gate as everyone else states leading into/or out of the busy marketplace. Can find some deals if you look. Mind your valuables as it can be crowded...

This town came. As a surprise to us.. We had taken up a cruise and this was one of the stops .. We didn't expect this town to be so beautiful.. Our shuttle dropped us to the city centre and just a walk around there did wonders.. Simply loved it..
