The story of Split lasts for almost 17 centuries, from the age when the Roman emperor Diocletian decided to build a palace in this area. Today, Diocletian's palace with its entire historical core is one of the biggest tourist attractions in the city of Split, where visitors are impressed with the magnificent history, tradition and beauty of the heritage. Walking through the old city you will get the feeling that you travel through the time. You will have the opportunity to see the sights of ancient and Renaissance architecture such as the Romanesque church, Gothic palace, Peristyle, portals of noble houses up to modern architecture. Such diversity is felt in Split everyday life, too. Split locals sit in the same cafes and buy in the same shops where the tourists sit and buy. That's how they show visitors that they have become part of the city and perfectly fit into its rhythm.
