SPLIT & TROGIR

Split, with its Diocletian's Palace, was included on the list of World Heritage Sites back in 1979. Take a walk through history and see the changes of Split from the ancient Roman Empire to the present day. The City of Split, currently the largest Dalmatian city and port, situated on the Marjan peninsula, will reveal its 1700 years old secrets to you. Every single stone has its own story that will be whispered to you if you only listen closely. Let the present behind and go back to the past; walk around the narrow streets of Diocletian’s Palace, visit the ancient Peristil Squares and feel like a true emperor on this place where people used to bow to the floor in admiration to the great Diocletian. Visit the ruins of his private chambers, his mausoleum which is the city Cathedral today, the ruins of Roman temples, the Golden and the Silver gates and excellently preserved cellar galleries. You can spend some time shopping for perfect souvenirs, taking pictures or just walking around and breathing in the history.

After a brief time-out, we will continue our journey through history towards Trogir, a small, well preserved town sandwiched between Croatia’s mainland and the island of Čiovo. It is hard to find another town on the Mediterranean as small as Trogir and as rich in respect of the cultural heritage. This fact was noticed by UNESCO back in 1997 when Trogir was included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. This small town is a mosaic of monuments that date from the ancient Greek period to the Middle Ages and further on to the present.
