Currently, Croatia is referred to as “the new Italy” by some people in the travel industry. One of the country’s cities, Split, features much of the history and beauty that make Italy extremely famous.
There are many different things that you can do with your money when visiting Split. Some of the popular tourist attractions in this city include historical churches, Roman ruins, galleries, museums, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a lot more. Nowadays, there are more than two thousand residents living within the walls of the Diocletian’s Palace, which was constructed about the year 300. This former palace’s remains, as well as Venetian porticos and churches, are currently part of the Old Town of Split. Right outside of these walls sits a marble, palm-lined waterfront called the Riva.
If you want to obtain details about the attractions and activities around and in this very old city, go to the information booth located right within the palace’s wall. You can buy the so-called Split Card in order to get free admission and/or good discounts to several of the attractions of Split.
While you can enter the palace for free, there are fees for seeing cathedral treasures in person and climbing to the top of its tower. In the present times, there are shops, eateries and a museum, as well as a large open-air market just outside of the walls.
