Old Split, Split

4.6
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 worth a visit and lots to see and walk around the old town. Very like Egyptian atrifacts and very helpful people who are very willing to help and talk  more »
  • Walking around the old Split is a visit to the past. Unlike many people think, old Split goes beyond the Diocletian Palace. The city is not as crowded as expected and it was quiet to walk through the alleys.

  • What a gem this city is. Walk along the quay or just stroll around in the old part of Split. Friendly people. What struck us was that the city was so clean, no debris on the streets.
