Emperor Diocletian Palace and the UNESCO town Split tour


Welcome to my hometown, welcome to Split!

Split is the biggest city on the Croatian coast and one of the most historical places on the Mediterranean.

We will explore together the compact, pedestrianized center of town, almost entirely preserved 4th century Diocletian's palace, its basements, as well as the St. Domnius cathedral. We will walk through the palace fortifications and gates, visit the Jewish ghetto and admire one of the main symbols of Split - its main promenade, the seafront - Riva.

You will hear the story of the life of Diocletian - of one of the most successful Roman emperors, but also the worst Christian persecutor ever. St. Domnius was one of the martyrs from that period, nowadays he is the patron of Split. . . You will learn how the palace of Diocletian was turned into medieval Christian town and. . . yes. . . why we have the oldest cathedral building in the world (!)

You also might be interested to hear why is Split considered to be the sportiest town in the world. . .

A Recent Review of this tour

Matej was waiting for us when we arrived and was very knowledgeable throughout the 2hr walking tour of Split. He adjusted the tour according to what we had already seen and was very helpful in making recommendations for the remainder of our time in Split and in Croatia. I would highly recommend Matej as a tour guide.
