Explore the Top 10 attractions in Split with Coach Charter Europe - your bus rental company
Split, a city on the Dalmatian coast of Croatia, is known for its beaches and the fortress-like complex of Diocletian's Palace in the center, which was built in the 4th century by the Roman Emperor Diocletian. Once consisting of thousands of structures, the ruin still comprises more than 200 buildings. Within its white stone walls and under the courtyards there is a cathedral and numerous shops, bars, cafes, hotels and houses. Split, on the Dalmatian coast of Croatia, feels like a city forgotten by the time. The ancient centre, with a vast Roman palace in a whole city, becomes powerful after 1700 years, is like nothing you’d seen before. Over the years this style has been retained intact and then integrated into modern structures, such as the Cathedral of St. Duje, the heart of which is the mausoleum of the fourth century.

Coach Charter Europe can advocate top 10 points to be on your program when exploring Split as follows:

1. St. Duje’s Cathedral

The way old buildings have been repurposed is one of the enchanting aspects about the architecture in old Split. Split 's cathedral, once Diocletian's mausoleum, is the finest example. The core section of the building dates back to 350, making St Duje the world's largest cathedral. It's a real thrill to see how Roman features like the original 24-column ring combine with characteristics of a Catholic place of worship. Take just a moment to see the elegant wooden doors of the cathedral that have survived unaltered since 1200. 

2. Diocletian’s Palace

Diocletian’s Palace dominates the city’s historic core. There’s nothing else like it in Europe: It’s a wonderfully-preserved 4th-century complex blending Diocletian’s stately retirement villa with the remnants of a large military camp. Such is the scale that it’s more of a citadel than a palace, and surprises await around every corner. Needless to say that the palace is UNESCO-listed, and you’ll even be able to tread the original Roman streets that cut through the complex: decumanus and cardo still have their original paving stones. It won’t come as a surprise that scenes from Game of Thrones have been filmed at this stunning location.

3. Peristil Square

Peristil Square is the original Roman court, where you can soak up the architectural majesty of old Split. Afternoon cups of coffee don’t get more dramatic than this, that’s for sure! Diocletian made his public appearances at just this plaza and his devoted subjects would prostrate themselves in front of the former emperor. Still standing are the two 3,500-year-old Egyptian sphinxes brought to the city by Diocletian. The epic stone monuments around the square have endowed Peristil with fine acoustics so you could definitely catch an opera or theatre performance in the summer. 

4. Historic Split

You'll need at least a few hours to sample the old town and you can't do this better than on foot. Travel to the Pjaca square where the old town hall of Split overlooks a modern plaza with polished marble tiles and outdoor cafes. Also important is Fruit Square, with its name taken from the market that has been held here for centuries. There is a lot of beautiful Renaissance architecture here, remains from the Venetian age of Split. To see how Split people go, try Marmont Lane, which stretches down to the water and is flanked by stores, cafes and restaurants at the edges. 

5. Marjan

This steep, 170 meter high hill with cypress trees and Mediterranean pines is just west of the city. It's just the ticket if you're in the mood for a bite of fresh air and exercise or want to map some of the less visited attractions in Split. The Jewish cemetery on the eastern side of the hill is especially significant. There have been no burials since 1945, but many of the graves are still visible and some date back to the 1700s. Two churches, Saint Nicholas from the 1200s and Saint Jerome in the 1400s, with a renaissance altarpiece designed by the Venetian Andrea Alessi, are located on the peak.

6. Campanile

Next to the cathedral is the famous Split bell tower, a spectacular view, which is six stories high as you climb to the highest levels. On your way up you will be open to the elements, and you will be able to see the arched windows of the tower, which are a classic characteristic of romance and have not been altered since the thousands. At the top, your reward will be the view of the townscape of Split and the Adriatic, worth the very costly climb and the small entrance fee!  

7. Klis Fortress

You will know why this hamlet on a mountain pass also appeared in Game of Thrones when you see it. Klis Fortress is perched on a bluff over the eponymous town's terraced hills and is surrounded by even more rugged cliffs of pale gray granite. It's a sight that you won't forget, and this system has spilled blood for two and a half centuries. The ancient Illyrians were the first to build a fortress here, and Klis has been the seat of Croatian Kings for centuries since the medieval period. Whoever held this castle 10 km northeast of Split during the Ottoman Wars had the upper hand in the area. 

8. Statue of Grgur Ninski

The subject and maker of this strong statue are both a great deal beyond the Golden Gate. Ivan Meštrovic was a master of his craft and he continued his career after communism in America, where his public works are still as appreciated. More later on him. Grgur Ninski is a 10th century Bishop, a Croatian hero who challenged the pope with the conduct of religious services in the Croatian language, helped spread Christianity in the region and developed the national identity of Croatia. People rub Ninski's big toe for good luck and this little club of bronze glaze was created by years of touch.

9. Museum of Croatian Archaeological Monuments

If you wonder where the stuff from all of Split's historical landmarks ended, here's your answer. About 20,000 objects, of which only a quarter can be exhibited, have been collected by the Archeological Monument Museum. The majority of these are medieval and usually contain jewellery, arms, armor and household objects. The numerous stone-inscriptions, reliefs and sculptures relating to the Croatian rulers, the aristocracy and the clergy from the 1980s to the 1100s were the most important items in terms of Croatian history.

10. Salona

An simple bus journey from the center of Split, Salona was once the largest city in the Balkans in the Roman Empire. Sixty thousand people lived at the height of the city at Salona and while the archeological park was sacked and abandoned in the 600s, this was a spectacular day out and it retains important parts of the buildings that once stood here. The most prominent of these is the amphitheater that once had 18,000 spectators. You can trace the perimeter of the area and see how the terraced seating is aligned with the slope of the hill on which it was built.
