This Imperial Palace if built like a fortress with high, very thick, walls; and the town of Split took shape within the palace walls. This is definitely a city you don't want to miss on your tour of Croatia.

This is a phenomenal place. Before coming to Croatia we didn't even know that such a place exists here. We are really delighted with Croatia. This was really something special.

Stroll through the palace and shop for handcrafted local artists water or take a tour of the interior and learn the history. Lots of great places to eat too and if you are lucky you will have traditional music to listen to.

The palace is an open area and free. Go to the cellars which cost 42 kuna, very worthwhile. You access them from the promenade, just where the underground market is. Turn left towards the metal fence and tickets can be... More
