    Clock Tower With Interesting Clock Face
    In People's Square or Pjaca, there’s a clock tower at the eastern end. In addition to telling the time, it also has an interesting sculpture of the Sum in the centre. The sculpture has rays emanating from the sun, with one of the rays extending further out and hitting a planet, presumably the Earth and indicating the hour position. A nice landmark.

    Still Ticking
    The city clock has been ticking for centuries on Pjaca and is an easily visible monument that has been gracing the city ever since 15th century. What makes this clock unique and an important attraction is that it runs on 24 digits rather than the usual 12 hours. It is surrounded by cafés, restaurants and bars so the citizens of Split (as well as tourists) can always find a place to rest, meet, be seen and see others. Every building on Pjaca has its story, each is a witness of history and the spirit of the city. Pjace or Narodni trg replaced the peristyle as the city’s main square in the 14th century, and is overlooked by this Romanesque clock tower with the remains of a medieval sundial.

    Nice 24hr clock with a sun face.
    I only really looked at this clock as I was walking past taking photos of the Iron gate entrance into the Diocletian's palace. It has a sun center and has 24 hour markers obviously for each hour of the day. A nice old clock that has been working for centuries.

    Very beautiful bell tower
    City clock is a bell tower located in the old town of Split, the main city in the Coast of Dalmatia, in Croatia. You can see it, if you walk around the old town and really it is a very nice tower. It is located in a narrow street and the zone and a picture with this tower and some stone buildings is really very beautiful during the day and at night. One of the top point in the old town.

An unusual clock that fits well within the old city, which is, in fact, a palace. Probably added centuries later to remind people to go to church, in a place built by a guy who threw Christians to the lions. If these walls could only talk

i struggled to find this, it’s not obvious at all where it is and i couldn’t see any signage indicating where it is. it took me a few visits to the square to find it! it’s pretty but there isn’t any signs or anything explaining the history behind it; that would have been nice to read.

We had the pleasure of looking at the clock at night and at day time while we had lunch at the Kavana Central. People stop to look at it for a few moments and walked on

The city clock situated at the People’s Square (Narodni Trg) is full of charm and brings about feelings of a by-gone era. Unique, in being a 24 hour clock (not your typical 12 hour clock), set in its location amongst medieval buildings, the clock is admired by tourists and locals alike. The sun rays that radiate from the centre add to the romantic image of days gone by.
Tip: If taken a photograph of the clock, find a good time of day as there are always hordes of tourists around the clock art certain times of the day. My pick is late afternoon or early in the day (look for the right light) to take your photograph. Its charming when it chimes.

located near the palace of Ciprianis-Benedetti, the clock tower is one of the taller structure of the old city.

Walking around Split itself is great, and the clock is just another nice spot. I found wandering around here much more pleasant than fighting the crowds in venice, and the little nooks and crannies are that much more charming too.
