The palace of Diocletian

This palace dates back from the Roman Empire. To be more precise, the building was constructed during the years 295 and 305. At present, the palace is largely regarded as one of the most grandiose ruins. As the name clearly suggests, the building was home to the emperor Diocletian, who is known throughout history as the one who persecuted the Christians. The palace isn’t a palace per se, but rather a small city. There are homes everywhere, not to mention that the citadel is protected by high standing walls.
If you’re passionate about peoples and cultures, then you’ll definitely want to see the Ethnographic Museum of Split.

Why visit his castle without visiting his room too? If you do resort to Gecko Guided Tours Croatia and find yourself on the coast of Dalmatia, it would be a shame not to visit the Ethnographic museum.
St Domnius Cathedral
The Cathedral of Saint Domnius was actually named after the patron of split. This huge church is entirely roman architecture. Taking into consideration how old the cathedral is, hundreds of years old, it’s in a pretty good condition. Despite the fact that the church was built to serve as a mausoleum, now it is used by Christians, namely those who Diocletian maltreated. You can say that what goes around comes around. Anyway, St Domnius Cathedral was built in an octagonal shape, being surrounded by 24 circles. The construction was built somewhere in the 300s, but the tower bell wasn’t erected until the year 1100. Yu will be impressed with the tower bell, that is for sure.
