Split is already 17 centuries old, dating to the time the Roman Emperor Diocletian decided to build his Palace right on the peninsula near the great Roman city Salona. During these 1700 years, the Palace slowly turned into a city, which to this day lures with its rich tradition, glorious history, and beauty of its natural and cultural heritage.
Split is the second largest city on the Adriatic coast, the capital of Dalmatia and due to its suitable position, there is a significant harbor extremely important for this area. The vast monument represents a unique cultural heritage, and it is inscribed on UNESCO world heritage list which makes Split more exciting and recognizable in tourist guidebooks. We are talking about significant building for this region and worldwide, standing under the name of Diocletian’s Palace.
