1700 years old Diocletian's Palace "gave birth" to a beautiful town of Split


The city of Split truly is a living monument. Life never stopped thriving here in the last 1700 years (yes, that is correct, 1700 years).

There are numerous monuments waiting to be seen and stories waiting to be told. From the times of the Roman emperor Diocletian until our day so many nations have left their mark here.

UNESCO recognized Split's amazing value and protected it in 1979.

Would you like to get an insider's view of what the Diocletian's Palace once used to look like? How about experiencing some things "behind the scenes" and off regular tourist paths? Would you be interested to hear the stories you can't find in guidebooks and taste the things you can't taste elsewhere?

I would be honored to be your host and guide in the city I was born in and will hopefully spend the rest of my life in.

Itinerary

After we meet I'll take you on a walking tour of the old town of Split. As your local guide, whose roots reach deep into Split's old streets, houses, palaces. . . and whose heartbeat is synchronized with the ringing of St. Domnius Cathedral's belltower, I will do my best not to show you only all the magnificent monuments and buildings, from Roman period till present day (which I'll do as well); I plan to share with you all the stories only a local can know, those small details you can not find in guidebooks.
If you give me a chance to be your host in "my town", I'll do my best to make sure you take a piece of Split, a new emotion, back home, as a souvenir you'll always be able to carry with you.

A Recent Review of this tour

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with VJ. Knowing our interest in building, structure and design, he took extra care in sharing his knowledge in this area. We learned so much about the history and culture of this city that he loves so dearly. We have had experience with many guides over the years and find him to be exceptional.
