“Living History!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

The palace is a very neat place to see. Both in terms of what is was like in the 4th century and now to see all the people living within its walls. Great shopping, dining, museums and people watching to do here as well. Take some time here to really enjoy the history and all this place has to offer - well worth it!

“Worht a visit”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

If you're in Croatia you should go there and spend some time. If you haven't been to Croatia yet, this place is one of the reasons to go there.
Very very interesting place!!

“the most beautiful city in the world!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Split is a pretty big Mediterranean city with lot of of historical monuments. The most impressive for us was Diocletian Palace - massive stone construction built in the beginning of the 4th century by Romans that has been declared a World Heritage Monument by UNESCO.

The palace has so much to offer that it is hard to navigate in only one day. We could not actually believe that people are living and renting the appartments within the walls of the Diocletian palace.

The atmosphere was always amazing – local people were more than friendly.

We will surely return to Split again and again!!!!

“incredible place”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

it's not a common palace. it's a city built inside what was a majestic palace centuries ago, and it still maintains its attractiveness. inside the area you can find shops, clubs and bars. And, of course, the beautiful architecture.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

Worthwhile visit for fans of Ancient Rome. It doesn't really feel like you are visiting one palace but more like an old town because of all the shops and restaurants incorporated into this huge structure so try not to forget that in the past, this was one gigantic palace that housed the Roman Emperor and the people that served him. Do pass by the Hadjuk ice cream shop and don't forget to ask the server to dip your ice cream in chocolate for free!
