What to see & do
Diocletian's Palace - Diocletian's Palace is actually a massive structure in the city centre of Split that resembles a fortress more than a palace. The 'palace' was built by the Roman emperor Diocletian with the intention for it to be used as his retirement residence, but about half of the structure housed the military garrison. After years of being an abandoned site, the palace is now filled with shops, restaurants, and even resident homes.
