  • I love old churches and cathedrals. This one did not disappoint. Beautiful inside and out. A nice calming place to sit and reflect regardless of religious preference.

  • Climb the bell tower of the Cathedral of Saint Domnius for a panoramic view of Split. The climb is much less physically taxing than the climb of the bell tower in Zadar.

  • This is definitely a must do in Split. The cathedral is very ornate and nice. Very peaceful. I definitely recommend going to the top of the tower for nice views of Spilt. The crypt is tiny and has a nice statue of mother Mary. Be aware that they are closed to visitors if they have mass etc
  • Beautiful old cathedral. We got there during the rain, and it was time to look at the interior. Inside the church, one could observe many artifacts from completely different times. The view from the tower is not bad, but it was quite windy at the top and we didn't spend much time
  • The Split Cathedral and other related parts of the area were interesting, beautiful and a nice part of our visit to Split Croatia. Get the ticket that includes all parts of the tour - they have 4 or 5 different types of tickets and it can get confusing but each section only takes a little bit of time to see so see it all! Make sure you retain your ticket - they will check it at each area. My favorite part was the museum - nice and cool with lots of interesting religious (and non) artifacts.
  • The building that was the mausoleum of Roman Emperor Diocletian is now fully integrated in the cathedral but there are still many traces of the original building to be seen. The interior has a beautiful decorated altar and you can climb the bell tower, via small one way traffic steps, for fine views over the city. You can buy the entrance ticket at the ticket office opposite the church
  • One of Europe's oldest and most visited cathedrals. Very stunning. Tickets may be purchased 10 meters away. It is an important aspect of Split's rich history and should not be overlooked. You should go up to the highest to see the panorama views and see the old bell. The Roman emperor Diocletian and his wife Prisca were buried in this cathedral. However, the tomb later became a church and is today known as the world's oldest Catholic cathedral.
