It's a must see place if you're visiting Split. A Roman Palace full of different layers of history. Would recommend this site to anyone with passion for history. What a remarkable place!

More than half of the Old Town of Split was taken up by the buildings of Diocletian's Palace. A masterpiece built in the 4th Century AD. A must see when in Croatia. More than 3000 people still live within the premises.

I loved seeing parts of the palace from 2000 years ago, plus the entire town inside the palace, most of which are several hundred years old. Many of the structures (like the Mausoleum and the church to Jupiter) have been "repurposed" through the years. We...More

Pretty crowded at any time, however.... If you are willing to get up early, you can get a memorable shot of the square without the 400,000 people in front of you. Try about a half hour before sunrise. This square is open and lit all...More

I was amazed at the beauty of Split! The roads are paved in marble that has been polished by thousands of feet through the centuries. The remains of the castle are well preserved and still used! Imagine, a palace build in the 4th century and...More

It reminds us the lost roman civilization because many of the original buildings are still almost intact and the constructions made inside the ancient building respect the harmony. Perhaps there should be more visual information because without that it obligates to have a paid guide.

A magical place to wander around day or night! We went up the Bell Tower (free for kids) where we were rewarded from the top with 360 degree views of Split and surrounding mountains!

I always visit Diocletian palace when I am in Split. Everybody should visit it and walk through it and outside.. It's also full of restaurants, bars and unique shops.

DJ was a fantastic guide who showed us the peristyle, amazing klapa singers, the undercroft, the original dining area, the overall layout of the palace and how it changed over time, and great sites in the cathedral, baptistery and chapel. So glad we visited Split!

No fee except for the church and baptistry. It's really a mini town with lots of shopping stalls set in ancient buildings.

I know we paid for tickets to see the basement of the palace, that’s the ancient part. But I don’t recall how much it was. You can go through the middle section of the basement to the other side for free, but you won’t see... More
