No way to miss it if you visit Split, especially climbing up the bell tower if you're not afraid of height! The skyline with seashore, mountains, and the whole old town will make you impressed! Also the dungeon of dragon mother "game of thrones" is under the palace, it's actually the basement at Diocletian time. The ticket is inexpensive and... More

We enjoyed wandering the many narrow walkways and seeing the squares that were gathering places. Diocletian's Palace is a mix of history and present day shops and restaurants.

Great history mixed with variety of domestic handicraft retail shops. Often has entertainment venues throughout the summer months. Well worth the time and easy to walk and explore.

This is obviously the highlight of any trip to Split. Its right on the water so a very easy walk from the port if you are coming in on a cruise ship. The ruins cover a large area and only a portion of it requires a fee for admission. That portion is worth the price, though I would recommend an... More

Wonderful example of Roman architecture which has stood the test of time. Excavation and preservation is ongoing and it is amazing to see how generations following the Emperor's death utilised the palace or its building materials to build their homes, some of which are still inhabited today.

This palace is in relatively good condition for a complex that was constructed nearly 1,800 years ago. It was the retirement home for the only Roman Emperor to abdicate his position. Marvelous! Highly recommend this part of Split when you visit Croatia.

There is a reason why this destination is the number one amongst all the others. It is the place where everything has started, more or less. It is beautiful with many corners where you can sit and drink your coffe or eat your ice-cream and enjoy the crowds in front of you.
