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

  • Not a palace nor a museum but the city's living heart. Diocletian's Palace was the palace of the Roman emperor Diocletian, an extraordinary example of well preserved monuments of the Roman architecture. The Palace was built as a combination of retirement residence of Diocletian and other buildings, intended for housing military garrison. At that time, Split was only four miles far from Salona, the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia. Nowadays, don’t expect a palace though, nor a museum as this is the city's living heart (moreover, around 3.000 people permanently live “in the palace” today) and probably you will spend most of your time while in Split here (or at the beach) since its labyrinthine streets offer a wide array of restaurants, bars and shops.

  • The only thing to be admired It is present right on Split Riviera. Partially intact. along side the palace there are many shops where one can find good bargains.

  • Historical, very nicely renovated all around. All the tourists in Split visit this place so it can get pretty packed... Wear good shoes if it’s raining since the slick streets can get very slippery. Nice restaurants inside the palace too.

  • This is a unique place in the world. The centre of the city with population of about 300,000 inhabitants, is in fact, an actual Roman palace, built by emperor Diocletian in the turn of 2nd to 3rd century CE. It's pretty well preserved and original Roman streets, buildings and temples are still very visible. The place looks like magic/miracle. Enjoy ...

  • Very beautiful piece of history, middle passage now serves as a souvenir market, some parts of the original palace are now residential buildings, streets of central Split, etc. The preserved part is mainly empty ruin, but still it gives you a feeling of past grandeur. I highly recommend exploring all parts of the museum, and then all areas around it, the "used to be" part. For photography you may want to use your wide angle lens.
