Extensive archaeological site

Really interesting site near Split. Walls, a well preserved amphitheatre, an old bridge and some fascinating Christian tombs and monuments. A nice little museum too.

Salona was an ancient city on the Dalmatian coast. At first, there were the Greeks which had set up an emporion (marketplace) here. After the conquest by the Romans, Salona became the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia and, consequently, acquired all the Roman characteristics: walls; a forum; a theater/amphitheater, public baths and an aqueduct. It is also thought... More

This is well worth a visit. Not well sign posted so as previous reviews have mentioned you ideally need a sat Nav or some good directions. We followed the signs and after a few passes back and forth found the turning. Carpark spacious and mostly empty on our arrival and what a sight, so many ruins, so beautiful. The signage... More

Yet another highlight of my trip to Croatia! We drove to Salona and got completely lost trying to find it! There are very few signposts, which is a nightmare. I would say ether get your route sorted on a mapping software before you set out or take a taxi/bus. A positive (for us) outcome of the getting horribly lost was... More

We took the no.1 bus from Split which stopped right outside the site. All the people on the bus made sure we got off at the right stop! Once inside we were amazed at the quality of the ruins. It was very peaceful and we were free to walk around and through everything. A short ten minute walk took us... More

A whole lot of reviews of the town of Solin are actually reviews of the archeological site of Salona, which is located in modern Solin. Solin is a sleepy, quiet suburb of Split, with mostly residential houses and not much to do or see other than the ruins of ancient Salona.

Worth a detour from Split. Huge area and only part excavated. Fascinating groups of churches and sarcophagi as well as amphitheatre.

We liked the city of Solin quite lot. It is a small city by river surrounded with amazing nature and clean air. We liked the most the fact that it is only 7 minutes from Split but still quite and very comfort area.

We saw three parts to this site. On the uphill side near the parking lot is the ruins of an early Christian church - interesting to walk through and see all the old sarcophagi (I wonder where all the bodies went). A short walk downhill from there are the ruins of a large Roman town - no particular focal point... More

City of Solin is very close to the city of Split, with taxi it took about 5 minutes. We really like it because it is very clean and great for morning jogging.
