Diocletian’s Palace

Diocletian’s Palace is an ancient palace built by the Roman Emperor Diocletian more than 2,400 years ago and today forms about half the old town and city center of Split.

The palace had four gates:  the Golden gate on the northern side of the fortress, the Silver gate located on the eastern part, the Iron one – on the west, and the Bronze gate was on the south – the sea shore.

In the palace you can access the bell tower and the cathedral or got to see the small shopping street located under the palace. From here you can also access the ruins.

Remember: The Palace is not a museum, but more or less the Old Town and easy to explore. It’s free to walk around in, but the bell tower and other sights have a small fee.
