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

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... Somehow you can... More

At the end of Split's watefront Riva is a marvelous square called the Prokurative, which sits grandely up a few steps from the promenade. If it looks familiar, it is--actually a design based on St. Mark's Sq. in Venice. The original architect, a Venetian and lover of the city, was sent to Split and so missed his home city, he... More

Spacious square, built 1863 - 1867, often hosting concerts and cultural events. There are 2 coffee shops with outdoor seatings to enjoy the views from on a sunny day.
