Walk through the historic core of Old Split to see one of the best-preserved Roman remains in the world: the Diocletian palace. The town joined the list of World Heritage Sites in 1979. Enter the open-air central area of the palace and climb the campanile of St. Domnius cathedral. Enjoy a panoramic view of Split, nearby islands, and Marjan hill. Don't miss the chance to rub the big toe of the giant statue of Gregory of Nin, outside the palace gate, and make a wish. Other sites to see include 12th- and 13th-century Romanesque churches, medieval forts, 15th-century Gothic palaces, and Renaissance and Baroque-style palaces.

  • The old Split is endless and beautiful cobbled streets with plants and flowers. There you can find cafes, restaurants, houses design, major brands of clothing and footwear items, etc., it is beautiful to lose yourself among these streets and explore it again and again.

  • Nice area with plenty to see. A large local market to one side, the waterside on the other. Lovely little places inside when you explore 
  • We came with the cruise ship and were many satisfied! A city truly underestimated going visited because it is really worth! We went first to take a ride in the old part and then we went on the beach ... spectatular!
