Interesting!

This was a really interesting building located in the old city. I thought it was worth checking out.

Trg Republike is full of great coffee shops and restaurants. It's a neat square to hang out in and take pictures--it feels like you're in Italy (actually much of Split feels very Roman...I guess because it was). The square is beautiful at night as it's lit up. If you're a photographer and like night shots, this is a cool place.

This does look a lot like St. Marks. The architecture and scenery are beautiful. It is unfortunate that it is full of stadium seating instead f being an open air market for the public to enjoy,like St.Marks, but understandable. Great to see when you are here.

This large U-shaped square recalls Venice. It is largely opened on Riva Harbor on its southern side. It was built in the Italian style in the 19th century by General Marmont, the Napoleonic administrator of the district. As a matter of fact, he commissioned an architect, who himself was from Venice, hence the striking resemblance with San Marco square. The... More

A nice place to take a refreshing drink and rest your feet. I recommend selecting one of the restaurangs close to the harbour to get that cool breeze and nice view.

Happened to run across this because I stayed in the Bellvue hotel which is right next to the Prokurative. Very lively square or so it sounded at night. Beautiful architecture too..

The Prokurative or as most locals refer to it Trg Republike (republic square) is I feel one of the most recognisable landmarks in Split. This area was originally a park that was devised by the French Marshal Marmount during the French occupation. In the 19th century, the park was ripped up and the Prokurative was built to resemble a venetian... More

The architecture is marvelous worth a photo while you there at Riva. For me it didn’t fancy much. I felt the promenade is much more worth thn this square for a coffee.

You probably walk through this without even intending to. It was modeled after St.Marks in Venice. A nice place to have a cup of coffee and take a few photos, but this attraction wont take up too make of your time

I haven't been to Venice so far, so maybe that's why for me it is a unique feeling sitting on prokurative (= Trg Republike) and enjoying the sun and coffee while people are doing the same, or just passing by, visiting the theatre, kids are playing ball or tag on the square, cats are following their business...
