If only the rocks could speak, but they don't - so to best appreciate this site, as in most other sites around Split (and probably Croatia), best come armed with foreknowledge or with a guide - the tourism board (if it exists) does not do a good job explaining what is, making this place a jumble of rocks at worst,...

There is nothing else to see in this quiet location, so if you're planning a day out or think that your children are going to be entertained, then you might be disappointed. There are two sites, one of which (the amphitheatre) which you drive straight up to, and the rest is a pleasant 5 minute stroll. The ruins are in... More

Ancient Solin was very interesting. There of course isn't much to see since everything is in ruins, but you will spend a good couple of hours walking around and pondering about how your everyday life could have been in this ancient city. I would recommend visiting Solin and on a hot day, be prepared as there are no shadows or... More

Solin is a very nice town situated right northeast of Split, on the Adriatic Sea and the river Jadro, surrounded by imposing mountains. Solin developed on the location of the ancient Salona (a very important cultural, commercial, political, military and religious centre back then) which was the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia and the birthplace of Emperor Diocletian....

The Roman ruins of Salona are a hidden gem. Starting from the old amphitheater, it is a nice historic walk to the old city walls with its thermal baths and aqueducts. Along the walk there are empty sarcophagi. We visited on a rainy day with enhanced the atmosphere. Make sure you have reserve plenty of time to walk through the... More

Ce site archéologique est à voir. Celui-ci est assez grand et des panneaux vous permettent de le visiter seul et éviter les tours opérateurs... Dommage que le site ne soit pas plus préservé... des voitures traversent le site et de nombreux préservatifs jonchent certaines allées....le site devrait être payant (et pas seulement 20kn pour le musée situé au milieu du...

The first thing to say about this site is that it is big, the excavated areas take a good walk to get round and the museum doesn't quite match up. Leaving those things to one side what you see is striking and, to the extent needed, explained by the accompanying displays. If these types of site interest you, this one... More

This is a very interesting site, which, when we visited, was very quiet. Some areas are very easy to understand and picture the past. Beware of very uneven paths and there are no barriers or roped-off areas - a complete lack of H&S instructions which was most refreshing!

We stayed for 4 days in Solin and found it to be a quiet and restful place although the local youths can misbehave. The nearby ancient ruins are spectacular and very worth seeing. It is a lovely evening walk from Solin to the first ruins and then on to the amphitheatre which is some distance away. There is only one... More
