Diocletian Palace

By January 22, 2015 No Comments

The central part of the city of Split is a web of narrow stone streets, antique monuments and medieval buildings one of which is Diocletian’s palace. The Palace was named after its creator, the Roman emperor Gaius Aurelius Valerius Diocletian. It is one of the best preserved monuments of roman architecture, and is the cornerstone on which the city of Split grew. This exceptional building by the very sea is the last home of this strong and powerful roman emperor. Exceptionally preserved to this very day, the remnants of this building from antiquity, together with later medieval constructions form a valuable archaeological, historical and artistic
complex for which, in the year 1979, it was entered into UNESCO’s list of world heritage sites. The place which the great roman emperor chose for his summer residence, where he would spend his last days, will certainly deserve your admiration so we’ve organized a visit to Split.
