What shall I see

In the late ancient times, Salona's importance was great, both politically and religiously.

Salona was an early Roman settlement, which became overshadowed when Emperor Diocletian constructed the nearby Diocletian's Palace in about the year 300 AD. Salona's most notable attractions are the Amphitheatre, the Aqueduct, Bishop's Complex, and the Forum.

The Amphitheatre at Salona was designed to hold eighteen to twenty thousand people at one time. One notable feature of the Amphitheatre, not found in other Roman amphitheatres, are the underground channels. It is a testament to the genius of Roman civil engineering that the Aqueduct of Salona (Solin) is still in use today. Built in or around the 1st century AD the Aqueduct of Salona is an impressive sight, easily accessible to the intrepid visitor.

The Aqueduct of Salona brings water from the river Jadro and continues onwards past Salona to Split, ending at the Palace of Diocletian. Restauration work was undertaken in the 19th century to repair and preserve the Aqueduct of Salona and of all the attractions in the ancient city, it is considered to be the best preserved.

After Salona and its remains we will visit the palace of the Roman emperor Diocletian, the best preserved monunent of late classical period. It has been is on UNESCO's list of the world cultural heritage since 1979.

You will see the glory of Diocletian's palace, which he built to be his summer residence. Peristyle, st. Duje cathedral (mausoleum of Diocletian), temple of Jupiter, and get to know the history and connection between Split and Salona.

We will also show you other sites in Split centre that will take you back in time and remind you of different artistic and architectural periods.
