Know More about this tour

From the ancient Roman era to the 1990s fall of Yugoslavia, theres a lot of history to discover in Croatia and were cramming it all in on this epic Split tour that takes you time-travelling through more than 2,000 years of history.

The Roman emperor Diocletian landed in the pages of history as a great reformer, and an enlightened mind who was not afraid of changes or their consequences. Yet some might say Diocletians most notable move wasnt his many reforms, but the fact that he voluntarily resigned and retired at the end of his 21-year reign, something unheard of among Roman rulers. Well learn about the legacy left by the emperor with a visit to the monumental Diocletians Palace. This UNESCO World Heritage site has stood as a witness to many changes in Splits history, and youll learn surprising facts about the palace grounds like how the ancient property is still inhabited today.

Well then fast-forward to Croatias modern history, with the Yugoslavian break-up and the War of Independence. It was a time when brave people fought for their freedom and werent afraid of the consequences much like ancient Diocletian, who had left his mark on the Balkans so many years before. This era brought in a clear vision of what the new state would be, and kick-started deep political reforms that would forever change the future of this region.

But dont worry, were not going to make this Split tour just a history lecture! Instead, were going to have a conversation about all of it, over a picnic in the most beautiful park in Split. Youll get to try a few traditional Dalmatian dishes as you chat with your local guide about Croatias past, present, and future.
