There are different guides and books about Split, a city included into the UNESCO list of world heritage sites, but nothing really beats having a human point of contact when arriving in a new place.
If you love architecture, history and culture, this city is the right place for you!
Here the Roman emperor Diocletian decided to built his palace, at the turn of the fourth century AD in preparation for his retirement.
Our walk starts at the peristyle, the monumental court and a perfect example of Romanesque architecture which has recently been restored. Here you could breathe the spirit of the Roman Empire, appreciate sculpture and architecture built of local limestone.
The only way to access the Cathedral of St. Domnius is from here. The Cathedral is composed of three different sections of different ages. It's one of the best examples of Romanesque sculpture in Croatia for the wooden doors. On the first floor of the sacristy is the cathedral treasury which contains relics of St. Domnius, which were brought to cathedral after his death. Other treasures include sacral art works, like the Romanesque The Madonna and Child panel painting from the 13th century, objects like chalices and reliquaries by goldsmiths from the 13th to the 19th century, and mass vestments.
If you have no fear of heights, we could go up to the bell tower, constructed in the year 1100 AD, and here you could have a breathtaking view of the landscape of the city.
We'll go around the church visiting the rest of the magnificent Diocletian's Palace and concluding our walk in the basement of the Palace.
After this full immersion on the Romanesque architecture we could have coffee at the waterfront enjoying the sea breeze and the time spent together.
