Old Town and History

The city of Split is the second largest city in Croatia after Zagreb and has over 200,000 inhabitants. The city has been inhabited for over 2,000 years and has a rich culture as well as a breathtaking history, which can be traced back to Roman times.

The city was built in the 4th century by the Roman Emperor Diocletian as his residence and is now an important historical monument in Croatia. Diocletian’s Palace is the most famous structure in Split and consists of several buildings, including a mausoleum, a temple and barracks.

After the fall of the Roman Empire, Split became part of the Byzantine Empire and later part of the Kingdom of Croatia. Over the centuries, Split was ruled by various rulers, including the Venetians and the Ottomans. During World War II, the city suffered severe war damage and was subsequently rebuilt.

The old town was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1979.

Cultural Scene and Gastronomy

Split is also known for its lively cultural scene and rich gastronomy. The city is full of bars, clubs and restaurants serving Croatian and Mediterranean cuisine. Some of the most popular specialties in Split are fish dishes, olive oil and wine. One of our favorites is the Ćiri Biri Bela . Here you can have brunch, as well as delicious dinner.
