The coastline of the Atlantic Sea cradles the elegance of the historical city of Split. Chosen by the Roman emperor Diocletian as his residence, Split accommodates his giant palace — an intricate complex of quaint alleys and squares with over 1700 years of history, — a real city within a city. While the charm of the historical sites captivates many holiday-makers who flock to Split throughout the hot Croatian summer, the unspoiled nature and crystalline waters just make them fall in love.

Diocletian’s Palace

Diocletian’s Palace is the city's pride and glory — it houses the alleys and squares that compose the Old Town. Built for the Emperor Diocletian back in the 4th century CE, it boasts an impressive figure and a well-preserved building. As you walk through the Bronze Gate, a stunning view of the Palace will be disclosed to the eyes, revealing the magnificent ancient fortress. The ancient fortress is not just a dusty monument. It has become a vibrant neighbourhood with many shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as some apartments. Around 3,000 people live on the territory of Diocletian's palace today. In the popular HBO show Game of Thones, Diocletian’s Palace doubles as the city of Meereen.
