We walked through this one of the four as we came away from the food/fruit Market and then the antique market that finishes just outside the gate. Yes, it's a gateway but this 'Silver', but stone one, is somewhat different from the normal run of the mill.

This gate looks like it's the least cared for, but it also feel like it's the oldest and the one most representative of what the city was like when it was built.

Another relatively well-preserved part of the palace of Diocletian. It should be here, even in a day when there are so many tourists. In general, the old Split is a special place interpenetration of cultures

It is very fun to visit all four gates to the Palace. Walking the narrow, worn-stone roads made it a maze and unique way to get to know the interior of the Palace walls. Suggest doing it early in the morning before the crowds start to take away from the ancient ambiance.

I just love seeing History, doesn't matter where I go. Doesn't matter what the religion is. So wandering Diocletian's Palace and seeing everything was amazing. The Eastern gate is easy to find.

Beautiful architecture, good food at reasonable prices. Although it was raining, it did not spoil the visit.

The Eastern Gate is worth a look, as it does make for a good picture, plus the history behind it ....

Our room at Hotel Peristil overlooked the Silver Gate. It one of the four original gates to the palace and still used today. If you go out, you're in the flea market. If you go in, you're pretty much in the courtyard.
