Additional Location Information
Split is a wonderful city to explore and is a perfect spot to explore the coast and the islands too. Some highlights of Split are :
Diocletian's Palace (UNESCO heritage site) - The historic centre of Split is built around the remains of this Roman palace. You only need to wander around to experience it but you can also pay to visit the excavated remains of the basement of the palace. The palace has well preserved main streets cardo and decumanus. Roman palace is enriched with gothic and renaissance buildings. The Palace has 4 monumental gates Porta Aurea (Zlatna vrata, Golden gate), Porta Argenta (Srebrna vrata, Silver gate), Porta Ferrea (Željezna vrata, Iron gate) and Porta Aenea (Mjedena vrata) forming the North, South, East and West entries to the Palace. It is probably the best preserved Roman palace in general.
St. Duje's Cathedral - Originally built around 305 AD as a mausoleum of Roman emperor Diocletian's (the oldest cathedral building in the world). It is a mixture of Roman temple and Catholic church. It also has a fantastic bell tower which provides you a great panoramic view of Split, nearby islands and Marjan hill. (this tower is seen from the living room of Palace View apartment)
Peristil square (Peristylium) – This is the main square of Diocletian's palace with well preserved Roman architecture which has just been fully unveiled having been undergoing restoration for the last eight years.
Jupiter's temple - Ancient Roman temple which became St. John's church.
Two original Egyptian sphinxes- One is located on Peristil square, and the other in front of Jupiter's temple or St. John's church. They were brought from Egypt by the Roman emperor Diocletian.
Riva is the main city promenade which forms the waterfront of the Palace and Old Town.
Marjan - a National Park which is situated on the west of Split. Marjan is an oasis for many people who look for a natural stress relief, a great place for long walks, jogging, and bike rides. Marjan's peak, Telegrin is 174 m high and gives a wonderful panoramic view of Split. South cliffs are popular within alpine climbers. St. Nicholas church is situated on the east of Marjan, on it's south side are beautiful St. Jeronimus church and "Gospe od Betlema" church (Madonna of Bethlehem). House building is strictly forbidden in order to save Marjan - the lungs of Split.
