Ruins of the Solin Amphitheatre

Reviewed By 908Laura - San Francisco, California

We stopped here after Sibenik on our way to Split. Very close by.
Interesting that this ruin is literally in someone's backyard. Definitely not a place for tourist groups. The family who lives there is nice enough to offer their bathroom for visitors to use.
There are still some structures standing, but the ruin is extensive. My kids enjoyed climbing up and down the rocks.
Definitely worth a stop.

Ancient Salona

Ancient ruins of the city of Salona.

Reviewed By Ksenija M

Because it is still not exploited for tourism like other destinations. You can touch and feel how Ancient Romans lived 2000 years ago. Walk through ruins without boundaries and security yelling where not to go. Take a bus to Solin and explore the history.

Galerija Mestrovic

Galerija Meštrović houses the masterpieces of Ivan Meštrović carved in marble, bronze and wood. The house was built based on Meštrović's design (1931 - 1939), and was intended to be his family summer residence, working studio and exhibition space. It is surrounded by a Mediterranean garden which, with its bronze sculptures and the view of the sea and of central Dalmatian Islands makes a unique example of landscape architecture.

We have been visiting all the Mestrovic sculptures that we can find in Croatia. We visited his atelier and his 'well of life' sculpture in Zagreb and this gallery in Split is equally amazing. You can also visit his private church with more of his sculptures in wood. His works are unique and worth seeing if at first you were not keen on sculpture.

Diocletian's Palace

The ruins of the Roman Emperor Diocletian's palace date back to the late 3rd to early 4th century A.D.

Reviewed By HeidiM929 - Cincinnati, Ohio

Learning about the Romans and Diocletian was fascinating. It was interesting to walk through the palace and see how the Romans built and constructed structures. We learned a lot about their advanced thinking and construction abilities. We had a beautiful day and would highly recommend hiring a tour guide and learning about Split and Diocletian's life.

Marjan

Reviewed By Dannyturpin1989 - Billericay, United Kingdom

What a fantastic place not too far from the old town and well worth the hike up the hill. We had a drink at the café which provides magnificent views looking back towards the old town.
We wandered around Marjan for a few hours on a very hot but there is plenty of shade and it is a good escape from the busy cobbled streets of Split.

Dioklecijanova (Cardo Maximus)

Reviewed By BigHugh51 - Adelaide, Australia

There is so much to see in this area of Split's old town. During our visit, the location was buzzing with tourists taking in the sights.
The sights to see in this locale are just amazing. Whether it is the tall bell tower, the elegant facades and columns of the old buildings or the splendid arches and cloisters, it is all breath-taking.
While we were there, there were buskers and musical groups providing entertainment for the visitors.
This is certainly a great location for photography. Many photos were certainly being taken by many people during our visit.
This locale was one of the highlights of our visit to the old town. It is a "must visit" place for any tourist spending time in Split's old town!

Krka tours

One day trip to National Park Krka from Split

Reviewed By JaneD1000 - Bratislava, Slovakia

This is a beautiful place, but very overcrowded. We went with a tour and caught up on some culture before heading down the wooden walk ways to the lakes where you can swim.
We headed into the lake away from the crowds and had a very pleasant swim pretty much on our own. Watch out for the current and the jelly fish - there were some huge ones.
Glad we didn't have to walk back up to the top, we got the boat down to the next village.
