Split is the largest city on the Croatian Adriatic coast. The early development of the city goes far back to the 3th century when the Roman Emperor Diocletian built a palace which is now a protected UNESCO cultural heritage site. During these 1700 years the Palace slowly turned into a city, which to this day lures with its rich tradition, glorious history and beauty of its natural and cultural heritage. Such stratification is mirrored in everyday life of Split.
Today, despite the centuries of additions, palace remains the heartbeat of Split’s old town; an unique mix of architecture in a maze of narrow streets. Local inhabitants sit in the same cafes and restaurants, shop in the same stores as tourists, giving them the impression that, by arriving to Split, they became a part of the city and its rhythm.
