The Archdiocese of Split-Makarska, the city of Split and the parish of Uznesenje BDM celebrate the feast of their heavenly patron St. Domnius on May 7.This centuries-old traditional holiday is dedicated to St. Domnius, the Salonitan bishop, who lived during the time of Emperor Diocletian when he was executed.

St. Domnius is the most precious Split tradition, the concept of faith in the city that chose him as its patron saint and placed his bones in the cathedral, one of the oldest cathedrals in the world.

There will be over 60 religious, cultural, entertainment and sports content in more than 20 city locations. The event also marks the day of the city of Split. The holiday itself begins with a traditional procession from the Cathedral of St. Domnius, which starts in the morning and flows through the city, and ends at the promenade of Riva. In the evening, a traditional concert gets everyone on their feet, and the evening ends with a magnificent fireworks.The foreign concert program at Pjaca is also a novelty.

The most important sports event is the 22nd International Rowing Regatta of St. Domnius which brings the cream of European rowing, and the central stage of one of the most famous manifestations of university sports in Europe will be Split's waterfront.

Every year, the best teams from Oxford and Cambridge replace the course on the Thames with the one in Spinut, giving Split an honor that no other city in the world has had.

For years, the world's most popular rowers have been coming to Split to steal part of the English Boat Race tradition and at the same time create their own new tradition, another event that makes the city of Split recognizable on the world sports map. The international rowing regatta "St. Domnius" consists of the Student Regatta in Spinut and the Race of Legends on the Riva in Split. This year's novelty is the arrival of teams from other continents, from Johannesburg in Africa and faraway Korea.

Enjoy the charms of the city of Split, the festival and the rowing spectacle.
