On People's Square, the clock tower is unique in that has 24 and not 12 Roman numerals surrounding what appears to be an old sundial.

Located in the old town overlooking a square which is surrounded by restaurants and cafes, this is just one of the many sights to see in old town Split.

Right by the Iron Gate this clock is a 24 hour piece, something you don't see very often anywhere, especially in a medevial situation.

Split is all beautiful and full of interesting corners and details. This old clock is above a gate in a square by the sea.

It's a lovely clock and because it's 24 hours, it's not easy to read. It's only going to take a few minutes of your time to look at and photograph but it's nice and unusual so worth a look if you are in the area.

This clock is amazing as a real 1 day clock. When built it must have been visible from many locations but today it is lost in between the buildings.

The clock is not an attraction on its own per se. The clock is visible on one of the walls from one of the squares in town. I have not seen a 24 hour clock like this one before and it is fun to figure out the time on the clock.
