Split is a well-known cultural and historical center in Dalmatia. The story of Split is 17 centuries old, dating to the time the Roman Emperor Diocletian decided to build his Palace right on the peninsula near the great Roman city Salona, where he wanted to spend the last years of his life.
During these 1700 years the Palace slowly turned into a city, which to this day lures with its rich tradition, glorious history and beauty of its natural and cultural heritage. Diocletian Palace and the entire historical core of Split have been on the World Heritage UNESCO list since 1979, and not only for the extraordinary preservation of the Palace, but also because the Palace and its city continue to live a full life.
