As with so many of the listings on here, and as said by another reviewer - it is really weird that there exist separate attraction listings for different parts of the palace. It's like a food review site dividing up a review of a cup of tea into milk, water, sugar and tea bag. The gate is part of a... More

This gate provides access or egress to the east side of palace, a way to get luggage into place with minimal steps or to get to markets. As we have found there needs to be some localised info on its history. Have used it several times already.

I don't see how you could only review a small part of the diocletian Palace. But hey, it's true that this gate is well preserved.

Visitors are likely to pass through the gate on their way in or out of the city, but the Silver Gate is nonetheless an interesting piece of Roman architecture. A history book providing historical background is recommended to place the gate in its proper context.

One of the entrances to the Palace. Plenty of history surrounds the palace so a guide or good guide book would be very useful to know what you're looking at.

The Silver Gate leads out of the Peristyle to the Markets and is really showing its age but it is only one of the four major entry points into the Palace. The North Gate has Grgur Ninski as a focal point, the Southern Gate leads out to Riva Harbour while the Western Gate (Bronze ?) heads back in towards the... More

We walked through this one of the four as we came away from the food/fruit Market and then the antique market that finishes just outside the gate. Yes, it's a gateway but this 'Silver', but stone one, is somewhat different from the normal run of the mill.

This gate looks like it's the least cared for, but it also feel like it's the oldest and the one most representative of what the city was like when it was built.

Another relatively well-preserved part of the palace of Diocletian. It should be here, even in a day when there are so many tourists. In general, the old Split is a special place interpenetration of cultures

It is very fun to visit all four gates to the Palace. Walking the narrow, worn-stone roads made it a maze and unique way to get to know the interior of the Palace walls. Suggest doing it early in the morning before the crowds start to take away from the ancient ambiance.
