Split’s main site is Diocletian’s Palace, one of the most famous monuments in Croatia. The Palace, which covers an area of over 9 acres, was ordered built by the Roman emperor Diocletian and served as a combination palace and military camp. Hundreds of years later refugees from Salona occupied ruins, and the interior was converted into a town. Although over time the city spread out into the surrounding area, the palace still constitutes the inner core of the city. You will find that it is full of shops, markets, squares, and more.
St. Dominius’ Cathedral is another of Split’s famous sites, located on the site of Diocletian’s former mausoleum. Consecrated to the city’s patron saint, the Cathedral’s interior today retains much of the original decoration.
You will also visit the Catacombes of Diocletian, located next to the southern wall of the palace. Although they are empty, they are quite impressive.
Of course, you can’t miss the Mestrovic Gallery, designed in the 1930s by the great 20th-century sculptor Ivan Mestrovic. The villa and its garden contain a vast collection of his works in wood, marble, stone and bronze.
