For the next day of your luxury Split city break, we recommend sightseeing the Old Town and Marjan hill.

Marjan Hill

Climb Marjan Hill for the best view of Split.

It is located just next to the Old town and there are a lot of stairs but the view is worth it. You can see not only Split but the surrounding islands Brac and Solta as well.

For those who are discouraged by many stairs, you will be happy to read that Split Viewpoint is reachable by car as well.

Split Old Town

We recommend you start from the Riva promenade where you can buy a souvenir from your city break in Split.

Continue to the Cellars of the Diocletians' Palace because you haven't been to Split if you haven't seen the Diocletian Palace.

Split Sightseeing

From there exit to Peristil where you will see the Cathedral of St. Domnius, Egyptian sphinx, and Roman soldiers. You can even take a photo with them.

Vestibul is right next to it. There you can see the clear sky as there is no roof in this round building.

Prokurative is on the other side of the Riva where the Split music festival takes place each year.

Downtown you can see several famous statues as well like the statue of Marko Marulic, father of Croatian literature, and the Statue of Bishop Grgur Ninski. It is said that tapping his toe brings luck. This is why it is shiny! Both statues were made by famous Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic.

Grgur Ninski is situated right next to the Zlatna Vrata - the Golden door to the palace. Roman soldiers guide it naturally as they once did in the times of the Diocletian Emperor. All people who wished to enter the palace were interrogated there and if soldiers were not happy with their answers they were not let in and even worse they were killed.

Near Zlatna Vrata there is the Game of Thrones Museum because part of this World famous series was filmed here. There is a guy who looks just like Tyrion Lannister there.

The narrow streets of the palace are enchanting. You can feel the history here. If you are lucky you might even participate in summer festivities on Marmont Street with music and costumed people parading showing their folklore clothing.
