About Diocletian's Palace, Split

Built between the late 3rd and the early 4th centuries A.D, the Diocletian Palace was built during the Roman era as the retirement house for the Roman emperor Diocletian. Although in ruins today, this complex does make up for the most part of the old town of Split that includes twelfth- and 13th-century Romanesque churches, medieval fortifications, 15th-century Gothic palaces and other palaces in Renaissance and Baroque style. You can enter this complex for free and walk through its antiquity. However, for certain in-house attractions such as the basement, you will have to pay a price to visit. What makes this ruined but imposing structure even more beautiful is that it overlooks the harbour.

Diocletian's Palace, Split Reviews - Write a Review

  • It is an very interesting Palace in Split. Do not expect something very large but rather something smaller suitable for that period. Generally the Split old city is very nice. Split is a nice city. Also, Trogir which is in UNESCO Heritage must be visited. It is near split at approximately 25 km. Enjoy. God bless you!

  • I went to palace of Diocletian in November, it was raining lots but it was so worth seeing. Be prepared to travel back in time! There was also not very many tourist during this time, which was great! You have the freedom to walk around/stay wherever you like. There is also shops built in inside the palace; some are modern unfortunately which don't fit in just right. Other than that, it's a must see !

  • An amazing mix of ancient Roman, Medieval, and Modern. In one square you can see part of the ancient wall, a medieval addition, a Hapsburg-style building and a Venetian-style building. All of these reflect the history of this area. It's a lively old town and World Heritage Site. I visited it in early November.

  • Must take the tour to understand and appreciate the palace. Tour guides can be found in the main plaza for a very reasonable price. Beware of strangers who are overly friendly.

  • Set aside a few hours to wander the grounds of the palace complex and take in some of the sites. The Church of St. Domnius is worth a visit, as is the crypt of St. Lucy beneath it. The cellars of the palace are uniquely impressive, both aesthetically and historically. The squares and gates of the palace are always busy with activity, and there is great (if tourist-centric) shopping everywhere.
