#2 of 242 in Things to do in Split
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.

  • Split, a dream city. Very clean and all very nice and helpful people. The food is very good and the prices are not high.

  • The most important part of the Old City, the second largest city of Chloe, is the royal palace of ancient Roman Emperor Dai, which has so far been preserved as one of the world's heritage.

  • This was once the history of the ancient Roman Empire, and there are many Scuting throughout the city, walking in the stone Alley is very relaxing, may be in a corner of the surprise, basically the old City is not a afternoon can walk, Split this city as an island is also a good choice.
