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..

Apart from the Golden Gate, the Silver Gate is the only intact gate left of Diocletian's palace. The gate for decades, if not centuries, has been the gateway to the local marketplace 'bazzar'. Nowadays, the marketplace tends to be touristy full of t-shirts, souvenirs and cheap Chinese leather goods. I remember in 1969 and 1972, that the marketplace was full... More

It's the locals route from the fish market to the green market. I enjoy seeing it at different times of the day.

Make sure you have read the guide book or literature for as you wander through the old town, Diocletians palace or catherdrals and chapels you could miss this fabulous gate and it's awesome architecture - as many say it is a wonder it is still standing. Once out of the cobbled streets through this gate is an old nunnery, tower... More

Certainly a bustling hive of activity in Split with many touristic merchant stalls on the Palace side and the Stari Pazar markets on the other side. As I've mentioned in other Reviews this whole area is great to wander through. Diocletian's architects would not have intended for the Palace to be used as it is today. They should take some...

The casual visitor could be forgiven for not knowing what they are walking through! The farmer's market, on one side, is worth a good look. If you want an English language bookshop, try the other side of the gate.

A gate into the old, original palace of Dioclecian. If not pointed out as such it would be hard to understand what it was.

There are lots of ways to enter the Palace, but I like walking up the east side of the Green Market, through all the vendor stalls selling hats, clothes, luggage and other tourist souvenirs, to enjoy looking at the entire eastern facade of this magnificent edifice. After a few minutes, there it is on your left, the imposing 4 story... More
