Watched the Croatia vs England match here. It was a madhouse!!! Great event and although the crowd was lively nobody got out of control. Daytime it’s a nice little green park right outside the “golden gate”. Lots of shade relief on a hot day. Nice...More

Full of trees so you can take some time off especially during the hot summer days. Popular in Split called "Đardin". There are lyrics of a Croatian poet Tin Ujević carved on the surrounding walls.

Ideal location to find some shade, take a break and maybe fall asleep. Not too busy and lots of benches and grass to sit on.

A perfect place to stop for a rest or to sample the local pastries as we did! However, it seemed an erie place. There weren't many people around and when we sat looked and listened, we realised that there were no birds or squirrels! Still...More

Not the most amazing park, but it's clean and cosy. This is the closest park you can find to the old town, so good if you want to park your butt on some grass for a while. Some street vendors as well, if you have...More

Nice but nothing special, of course the location beside the old city gate. It is nice to relax after a walk through the City. Fountain is nice looking but the rest is nothing special compared to the real nature.

Along the west side of the park are several antique stalls (though maybe this is specific to a day of the week). The park had a food fair when we were there with each booth from a different country. So we had a quick bite....More
