Split is a beautifull historical city on the Dalmatian coast. It was founded by the roman emperor Diocletian (a.d. 244 – 313) who built a magnificent palace where he retired after his abdication (a.d. 305). This palace is at the heart of the present-day city of Split and is one of the best preserved monuments of the late roman imperial period, with its peristil, mauseleum, temple of Jupiter, roman walls and gates. The mausoleum of the emperor was transformed into the cathedral of Saint Dujam, patron of the city, in the 7th century. The roman palace and the neighbouring medieaval, renaissance and baroque city are on the list of UNESCO sites of human cultural heritage since 1971.


The modern city of Split, which through centuries grew-out from this palace, has today about 250 000 inhabitants and a modern University with about 20 000 students. The city has a number of galleries (the gallery of the world fameous sculptor Mestrovic, born near Split, in particular), a renowned archeological museum and an opera house. Split is connected by air to major european cities, by roads (a coastal road from Trieste and with a connection to the new Zagreb-Split highway) and by sea to croatian and italian harbours on the Adriatic. It is also the main harbour for boat connections to the entire dalmatian archipelago and to cities of Hvar, Korcula and Dubrovnik.

A few kilometers from Split are the archeological remains of Salonae, capital of the Roman provice of Dalmatia. Close to the Split airport, about 25 km from Split, is the beautifull and picturesque small medieval and renaissance city of Trogir, with cathedral of St. Lovre, one of the most beautifull cathedrals on the dalmatian coast. Trogir is also on the UNESCO list since year 1997.
