Visit the city of Split, Diocletian’s Palace and the Old Town that has been inscribed on UNESCO World Heritage List.

The story of 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, where he wanted to spend the last years of his life. 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.

Diocletian Palace and the entire historical core of Split have been on the World Heritage UNESCO list ever since 1979, and not only for the extraordinary preservation of the Palace, but also because the Palace and its city (or the city and its Palace, if you like) continue to live a full life. All historical layers from the old Rome, middle ages till today are still visible and alive in this structure. A walk through the ancient city takes you through time, along the great examples of ancient architecture like Peristyle, the middle aged Romanesque Church and Gothic Palace, Renaissance portals of the noblemen’s houses, Baroque facades and modern architecture superbly merged in the rich heritage.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On your way to Split, be sure to visit Solin, the cradle of Croatian history, the town built on the remains of ancient Salona, the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia. A Roman amphitheatre in Salona is certainly not to be missed.

Solin is a town in Dalmatia, Croatia. It is situated right northeast of Split, on the Adriatic Sea and the river Jadro.
Solin developed on the location of ancient city of Salona which was the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia and the birthplace of Emperor Diocletian.
After the arrival of Avars and Croats n the 7th-century town was destroyed, and its refugees moved to settlement in and around Diocletian’s palace, “Spalatum” (Split), turning
it into a fortified town. In the Early Middle Ages Solin was part of the Croatian territory and played an important role in Medieval Croatian state, being one of the political centres.
In the 20th century intensive industrialisation process of the Split basin made Solin no more than a suburb of Split.
Today, with its independent municipal status, Solin is part of the Split conurbation, well connected with other towns. Besides industry, a tourism is being developed
lately based on numerous archaeological sites and Solin’s distinctive image that comes from many urban parks along the Jadro.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When visiting Split, don’t miss the Klis Fortress, one of the most important fortifications in Croatia, bearing witness to the troubled history of Croatia and its centuries-old fight for independence. From the Klis fortress, there are magnificent views of Split and the surrounding area as well as the offshore islands.

he Klis Fortress is a medieval fortress situated above a village bearing the same name, near the city of Split, in central Dalmatia, Croatia.
From its origin as a small stronghold built by the ancient Illyrian tribe Dalmatae, becoming a royal castle that was the seat of many Croatian kings, to its final development
as a large fortress during the Ottoman wars in Europe, Klis Fortress has guarded the frontier, being lost and re-conquered several times throughout its more-than-two-thousand-year-long history.
Due to its location on a pass that separates the mountains Mosor and Kozjak, the fortress served as a major source of defense in Dalmatia, especially against the Ottoman advance,
and has been a key crossroad between the Mediterranean belt and the Balkan rear.
