What to do in Split?
Split, Adriatic’s brightest pearl, located under beautiful park-forest Marjan hill – lungs of the city.
Diocletian, the Roman Emperor chose this wonderful location for a reason to build his palace more than 1700 years ago. Diocletian’s palace is one of the rarest UNESCO’s cultural heritage in the world, where people are still living and is free for all passengers and tourists to visit.
