Diocletian's Palace

What can’t be missed when visiting Split is for certain Diocletian Palace. The palace is 1700 years old, and it overlooks the Split harbor. It is one of the most important architectural heritage of the Roman Empire. It can be entered through four gates, all named after four different metals: Golden, Silver, Bronze, and Iron Gate. At the heart of Diocletian Palace, there can be found the Peristyle square, surrounded by columns, which is the center of cultural life in Split. The extraordinary acoustics make it the main place for all the traditional cultural and musical events, such as the Split Summer Festival. Lastly, when it comes to the time for rest, there is the legendary City Café (Gradska kafana), surrounded by stunning buildings, such as the Renaissance clock erected on the ruins of a Roman tower, the first town hall, and Renaissance palace of aristocratic family Karepic.
