Walking tour of Split (jewish heritage)
Last few years I've been doing a lot of Jewish tours, organized by the small Jewish community in Split. This community is very proud of its turbulent history and struggles to preserve the heritage and the presence of its population in our city. You will meet one of the members of the Jewish community in Split's synagogue, today the third oldest active synagogue in the world, built in 1510. by Sephardic refugees from Spain.
In less than 3 hours you will hear all about the history of Split and at the same time enjoy walking the charming streets of Diocletian's palace.
In the Roman period, Split became the Emperor residence, later the place of admiration. By walking the streets of Diocletian's palace you will hear all about this great emperor, why did he build the palace in Split and why the palace turned from the place of Roman admiration to a medieval town.
The Jewish population in Split was here since the Roman period.
- Visiting Jewish heritage sites (old cemetery, Synagogue, graffiti from the 7th century. )
Open hours of the Synagogue: 10 am - 2 pm
- Panoramic view from Marjan hill.
The hill is completely surrounded by the city and the sea, making it a unique sight.

You will be amazed by seeing the largest and best-preserved example of Roman palatial architecture.
- Back to the place of your choice near the Old City

Peter was an excellent tour guide. We were a group with 2 adults and 3 children and he managed to keep the tour fun and interesting to everybody. We feel like we now see the city of Split though different (and more educated) eyes. We strongly recommend doing a tour with Peter for anyone interested in history, architecture, fun facts and so much more.
