If you want to get back to 4th century than you should visit Diocletian’s Palace that is the city’s living heart and it is one of seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Croatia (since 1979). The palace has built Roman emperor Diocletian and it’s made from white stone of the island of Brač. Within the palace, there are 220 buildings which are homes for about 4000 people. Each of four walls of this palace has a gate named after a kind of metal (The Golden Gate, the SilverGate, the Iron Gate and the Brass Gate). Peristil (Peristyle) is the central square of the palace, located next to the Silver Gate and has a unique beauty which is later used for theater scenery, works of ancient literature and opera classics. Every year you can see tourists enjoying drinking coffee on the steps circling Peristyle. That is not only the Roman experience but also the Egyptian because Diocletian was a lover of Egypt and put many granite sphinxes from Luxor.
Another great place to visit in Split is The Marjan’s hill and the forest. It is a place for escaping from the Split’s hustle and bustle. It is situated on the hill of the peninsula, at an only 10min walking distance from the city center. Its rich pine forest and unreal landscapes will everyone leave breathless.
