#2 of 241 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.

  • Well-preserved city masaiwniki. The Center has been that you need from th΄4ma food and drink. Closely cobblestone streets and visiting world, certainly not at the level of Dubrovnik, thankfully!!

  • The old town of Split and Diocletian's Palace is the most amazing place that I see. Here in one place we have to approximate the Romanesque building, with the middle ages, the Renaissance and subsequent time in one place. Wonderful use of space!

Where to stay in Split

Split and its surrounding area boast an extensive system of private accommodations for rent, which range from simply furnished rooms to elegantly outfitted multi-room apartments. Many locals approach travelers at the main bus station with offers of available lodgings, but before you agree to anything, make sure you know the room's exact location in reference to the town center. For something more luxurious, check out the city's four- and five-star hotels, or consider an elegant villa a walk away from the major sights.
