- Split is the second largest city in Croatia.It is economic, administrative, educational, sport and tourist center. The first inhabitant of Split was the Roman emperor Diocletian who started to build his palace in this friendly bay around 293 AD. After his abdication he withdrew to this luxurious palace of about 30 thousand square meters.
The following turbulent centuries made the palace into a town. The town overgrew the walls of the palace and its authorities kept changing – from Croatian kings in 10th century AD, Hungarian and Venetian administration, to French rulers and Austro-Hungarian monarchy.
Such past left its traces. This mixture of historic layers brought some clumsiness and today all that makes a part of its originality.
The big city today lives by the silent beats of history, lively spirit of the young and its particular Mediterranean charm.
Marjan hill is the first symbol of the town of Split. The people of Split started the forestation of Marjan in 1852, with the planting of the first pine trees. In 1903, society “Marjan” was founded which today takes care of this nature preserve. All the visitors in Marjan can enjoy its peace and quiet, recreation and entertainment, numerous small churches, hermit refuges and natural and jogging paths. A modest zoo is great fun for children.
- In the 11th century a church “Gospa od Zvonika”‘ was built, originally dedicated to St. Teodor, with a beautiful early-Romanesque bell tower. During the Middle Ages the area served as a courtroom, and only 50 years ago it was a haven for small shops. Especially is interesting the specific style of residential construction in the wall, bell tower, part of the guard pathway over the remains of the octagonal towers and a beautiful view of the entire decumanus and a part of the People’s square.
Prokurative is synonymous with portico, decorated promenades of cardo and decumanus, main streets of the Diocletian’s Palace.
This architectural details was used by the Venetians on their central square in front of the cathedral of St. Marco.
Bačvice is a phenomenon of nature, a sandy beach at the heart of the city, in the vicinity of the city harbor, and it can accommodate about r ten thousand people. In springtime Bačvice turn into a split version of Copacabana where many famous soccer players first displayed their talent, where the rugby in Split was born, where even in wintertime a unique game of “picigin” is played (a sort of volleyball, played in the sea shallows with a small ball).
Bačvice today represents a best known promenade for all generations, and during nighttime is the favorite center of nightlife.
