Aug 27, 2014  Split • City tour including Diocletian's Palace

Hotel President Solin  

Today, we toured Split, an active port that is home to the ancient Roman Palace of Diocletian.
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the greatest Roman ruins in Central Europe. Built in AD 305 by the Emperor Diocletian,
this fortress-like palace was protected by walls 590 feet by 705 feet. As one stands in the peristyle (central court)
of this grand structure, its scale becomes impressively clear. The medieval town of Split took shape within the palace walls;
Diocletian’s Temple of Jupiter was converted into a Christian baptistery and his mausoleum became a cathedral.
The entire old section of Split, with the palace as its centerpiece, is a virtual open-air museum with
the city’s contemporary life bustling through it.
