New part of old town

Apart from the old town beauty and the riva stroll this is a public place with cafés and bars. Nothing special.

Delightful public square surrounded by typical Dalmatian architecture of a human height. Saturday afternoon several cafe terraces were populated in the sunshine while a group of children were singing to a nice crowd. There's a delightful book store with a dark green facade and awesome art supplies at the west side.

People in Split like to have a coffee near the sea, on Riva. But, we enjoyed our coffee here on this small square so much. Local people call this square Pjaca. So cute.

Through the Iron Gate is the city's main central meeting place. It is overlooked by an interesting clock and is surrounded by beautiful buildings and palaces. This large square contains restaurants and cafes.

Standing with you back to the Roman Iron Gate you can see examples of buildings from the French, Austrian and Venetian owners of Split over the ages and how different their styles are.

We were in this plaza twice, once on our way to see the Diocletian palace and later in the afternoon to stop at one of the bars for a drink and snack. Its a cozy place and much more relaxing than the bars and restaurants along the waterfront.

Narodni trg (People's Square) has been the old town's centre since the Middle Ages. It acquired its full function as the municipal centre during the period between the 14th and 16th centuries. During that period, several municipal buildings were completed, in the flowery Gothic style. It was the most important example of secular Gothic architecture in Split. Today, only the... More

We stayed in this medieval piazza and found it interesting- it's not as large as other European piazzas nor is it square but it's interesting to sit, sip a coffee and watch the tourists walk by.

A beautiful square in the old town. A nice public space with many little restaurants around it. Worth a stroll.

The main square is around the corner from the palace so you don't need to go out of your way to visit. It's a lovely place and another must visit in Split!
