    The "missed" Town

    by solopes Updated Mar 1, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We arrived late in Split, just in time to a very quick visit to the historic center, and I felt sorry for not having one more day to explore the town.

    At a glimpse, it left the idea of a beautiful and lively town, where time could easily be occupied without regrets nor tedium.

    Underground Room

    by shavy Updated Aug 27, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Once you entered the gate you'll arrive into some kind of basement. You will have to pass through to this souvenir vendors before you reached the hallway, over crowded.

    This is also the most crowded part of the palace, the hall way were too small for visitors, we were kind of stuck in here. Most of the people passing here stops and took a look to the shops

    The vendors sell different stuff such as silver jewelry and painting. Some other thing you can buy such as souvenirs. You will also find the entrance museum down here. If you are not interested, keep on walking to the hall way of the palace

    We visited on a summer month, and the city of Split was very crowded and hot. The advice: if you can visit the place not in the summer month it probably a lot better. Despite, the crowds and the temperature we were enjoying so much our trip to Split. The city is very beautiful and plenty to see around, is really worth it to stop by if you are in Dalmatian coast area

    Shopping Street

    by shavy Written Aug 27, 2014

    You can plenty of things to do in the city of Split. One can enjoy shopping as well, unbelievable that this place is too much to offer to everyone's needs. The shopping street were very nice, less crowded with many beautiful malls, boutiques, and some small vendors. Is nice to stroll around even you are not here for shopping, window shopping is nice too

    A memorable place for shopping experience. But shopping is not the reason why thousands of tourists every year. Most of the clothing chains are located mainly in the Marmontova Street, which runs from the sea to the National Theater

    Here, you also find stores such as Diesel, Dolce & Gabbana, Esprit, Armani, Benetton and Mexx. In the Palace of Diocletian are several small boutiques and shoe shops, including a number of exclusive shops.

    Seaside

    by shavy Written Aug 27, 2014

    We were done wandering around the palace and we walk through out the golden gate and we continue along the seaside. Here is different view, the seaside areas are full with restaurants, is a nice place for a dinner where you have a great view to the sea

    From here, you can see the ferry from a distance. Split is a hub for transportation and ferry is one of them. From here you can take the ferry to Italy so, this is a very busy port. The seaside area were lined with palm trees, there were benches where you can rest, you see many people strolling, people running all sort of things you'll see here

    Architectural view

    by shavy Written Aug 27, 2014

    Strolling around the city, there are plenty of things to admire, the city has plenty of beautiful buildings. Visiting the summer months can be very hot and crowded, but I noticed in some parts of the city were quiet and taking picture is more easier

    This building is right next to Square of Republic, if you stand in the square you will see this view, and beyond the building is the harbor where you have a beautiful as well

    Narrow streets

    by shavy Updated Aug 27, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Split is adorable town which has one of those old narrow streets. You will notice if you wander around you'll pass many into of maze streets. The same as in other town of Croatia it seems typical in this country.

    The nicest thing if you follow those small alleys, you always find something interesting which not every tourist can see and it often picturesque. Split is beautiful town not only known for his palace but the city has a lot to offers.

    Stroll around

    by shavy Written Aug 26, 2014

    After exiting the from the golden gate of the Palace we get to this place, it looks like a park and if you continue walking you get to the city center.
    On the way you'll see some sights. Just behind the ancient wall of the palace, very interesting. In the park area there were vendors selling drinks and souvenirs

    Golden Gate of the Diocletian's Palace

    by shavy Written Aug 26, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The golden gate wall is on the north side of the complex. Its entrance was once 2 meters deep and there were five enclaves for the four rulers and an eagle statue of Jupiter.
    This Golden Gate greeted land visitors and ushered them down the north-south axis road called the Cardo to the vestibule, temples, and emperor's apartments.

    Once it was perhaps the grandest gate in Dalmatia.To impress visitors, this would be a magnificent entry, most probably bedecked by statues and bristling with soldiers and the trappings of empire

    The Walls

    by shavy Written Aug 26, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you wander around and have a good look to this monument, you will find some interesting thing. If you look closely to the wall of the palace this appears to have been originally covered long ago by mosaics, making this a quite elegant place to wait until the former emperor decided to grant you an audience

    The Vestibule was the entrance to Diocletian’s apartment, and was accessed via the Peristyle. It would’ve originally been adorned with marble slabs, statues and mosaic tile work. The domed ceiling eventually collapsed leaving the opening that lets in glorious sunshine today

    The Riva

    by shavy Written Aug 26, 2014

    Heading to the center you will pass to this ancient wall called Riva the promenade of Split a very popular place in the city. About 50 meters to your right is the old city gate. Before that, you'll pass many shops and restaurants before you'll arrive at the entrance. What we see in the center of Split, it’s tough at first to find the palace through the trees . Keep on walking till you get to the gate,

    Seems, many of these wall today are being restored and leased to banks and restaurants . You can have a nice stroll where you have all the shops, restaurants, here, you meet many of the tourists and also one of favorite place for everyone. The cafes and shops here are built onto the south side of the old palace walls.

    Panoramic Flight

    by dplesko Written Jan 30, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Flight over Split and islands near by is really nice experience. You may call Split airport and ask for panoramic flight and they will give you phone number, so you may agree with pilot term, duration, route and maybe a price.

    I have flight Cessna Skyhawk 172.

    Peskarija

    by croisbeauty Updated Dec 26, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Peskarija is local fresh fish market, one of the emblems of the town and a must see. It is not emblem because of its architecture, no way, such a insignificant buildings you can see all around the world. It is emblem because of the local's people mentality. Here on the Peskarija you can noticed how colourfull mentality locals have. Do not panic if people shouting or looking alike those who will start fighting, its their way of burgain or advertaising the merchandise. Soon after shouting you will see them joking or mocking to each other.

    Very small church od St. Mihovil na obali was built in the 7th and 8th century, 6,3 meters in length and only 4 meters large. The church was doubled in size in the 10th and 11th century and later on, in the 15th century, completely reconstructed. Finaly, it was totally destroyed in 1906.
    Today it is very popular city spot and meeting point among the citizens. Here you can enjoy in fine espresso, cold drinks and refreshing shadow.

    Croatian Archaeological Monuments Museum

    by BruceDunning Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is a modernized structure built in 1976 that houses 3,000 pieces of sculpture, weapons, tools, and other pieces mostly from the Medieval period. The collection has had to be moved many times as it grew or war was threatening. Located on Ivan Mestrovic street at the foot of Marjan hill and before the Mestrovic home. Entry fee is $5 and the tour was nice but lacked some depth.
