About Split

Split, a town on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, is known for its beaches and the fortresslike complex at its center, Diocletian's Palace, erected by the Roman emperor in the 4th century. Once home to thousands, its sprawling remains include more than 200 buildings. Within its white stone walls and under its courtyards are a cathedral and numerous shops, bars, cafes, hotels, and houses. The Riva is Split’s modern seafront promenade, lined with palm trees and restaurants, and the white marble Narodni Trg (People’s Square) is a central meeting place overlooked by a clock tower. The main beach is sandy Bačvice, but there are several smaller, pebbly stretches such as Ovčice. The Split Archaeological Museum preserves artifacts from prehistoric times to the Middle Ages, and the Gallery of Fine Arts houses works by major Croatian artists. At the tip of the peninsula on which the city sits is Marjan, a wooded hill with churches and walking paths.

Hvar, a Croatian island in the Adriatic Sea, is best known as a summer resort. Highlights of the port town Hvar include its 13th-century walls, a hilltop fortress, and the main square anchored by the Renaissance-era Hvar Cathedral. The island also features beaches such as Dubovica and inland lavender fields. Boat excursions serve the nearby Pakleni Islands, which have secluded beaches and coves.

Brač is a Croatian island in the Adriatic Sea. It is best known for the white-pebble beach Zlatni Rat (Golden Cape), a favored windsurfing site outside the resort town of Bol. Supetar, the island's main town, offers a horseshoe-shaped beach and ferries to and from Split. Seaside Pučišća features traditional architecture and an active quarry for the island's famous white limestone.
Diocletian's Palace

Diocletian's Palace is an ancient palace built for the Roman emperor Diocletian at the turn of the fourth century AD, which today forms about half the old town of Split. While it is referred to as a "palace" because of its intended use as the retirement residence of Diocletian the term can be misleading as the structure is massive and more resembles a large fortress about half of it was for Diocletian's personal use, and the rest housed the military garrison. Today the remains of the palace are part of the historic core of Split, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Marjan is a hill on the peninsula of the city of Split, the second-largest city of Croatia. It is covered in a dense Mediterranean pine forest and completely surrounded by the city and the sea, making it a unique sight. It is also the setting for numerous beaches and jogging trails as well as tennis courts and the city Zoo, all surrounded by the scenic forest.

The frogs have been stuffed in a very demanding way, using a taxidermy technique through the mouth, which is an extremely complex and time-consuming process, so the exhibits are devoid of any external incisions.
Golden Gate

Golden Gate or the northern gate is one of the four principal Roman gates into the stari grad of Split that was once Diocletian's Palace. Originally the main gate from which the Emperor entered the complex, the gate is on the road to the north, towards Salona, the then capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia and Diocletian's birthplace.

Mali Kozjak, also known as Kozjak or Primorski Kozjak is a mountain located above the town of Kaštela in Dalmatia. It belongs to Dinaric Alps, and it stretches from the pass of Klis in the southeast to the above Split Airport in the northwest. The highest peak is Veli vrj above Kaštel Gomilica. Its southern slope is very steep, and northern rock slopes gradually turn to the corrugate plateau of Dalmatian Zagora. Kozjak is mainly composed of karst limestone rocks.
Trg Peristil

Peristyle, as the central square of the Palace, intended for Emperor Diocletian celebrated as the living son of Jupiter, finds its place among many temples. The red color of the granite columns emphasizes the ceremonial function. Owing to its unique beauty and unusual acoustics, Peistyle became the ideal theatre scenery, perfect for opera classics and works of ancient literature, but also the stage where abundant urban life continues.
