The history of Split, which is 17 centuries old, is too rich and turbulent to fit in a few sentences. Although there are Greek settlements, the founder of Split should be considered the Roman emperor Diocletian, who decided to build his empire on a peninsula near the Roman city of Salona. In contrast, Split was a very small settlement. Diocletian's Palace was built at the turn of the 3rd and 4th centuries, during his reign, where the Roman emperor spent the last years of his life.
With turbulent centuries with the invasions of the Avars and Slavs, through the Hungarian and Venetian administrations, to the French rulers and the Austro-Hungarian monarchy,
outside the walls it slowly turned into a city. Today it attracts with its rich tradition, glorious history and the beauty of its natural and cultural heritage.
The palace is in the heart of Split, surrounded by walls and towers, and Split Peristyle is considered one of the most beautiful squares in Croatia, and even in Europe.Our words do not give justice to this city, come, take a walk and feel its rhythm.
Splitska Riva is the most famous promenade in Split. Exploring the old town and sightseeing all the important buildings inside the palace, you will reach 'Pazar' - a colourful green market just across the harbour where you can taste the rich flavours of Dalmatian and Mediterranean specialities, and the famous 'Peškarija' - fish market in Marmont Street.
