The Roman Emperor Diocletian decided to build a palace on a peninsula near the large Roman city of Salona. Throughout 1,700 years, the palace gradually became a city with a rich tradition, history and natural and cultural heritage. Diocletian’s Palace and the historical core of Split have been on UNESCO’s world heritage list since 1979, not only because of the exception conservation of the Palace, but because the Palace and its city still share a life with each other. All of the historical layers are still alive and in use, from Ancient Rome, through the Middle Ages to modern times. You can travel through time by examining the ancient town, viewing examples of ancient architecture such as the Peristil, gothic palaces, medieval Romanesque churches and the renaissance portals of houses of noblemen with the presence of baroque facades, up to modern architecture that has molded with the heritage. Even today there is a mixing of layers in the fact that local inhabitants walk the same streets, visit the same restaurants and shop alongside tourists, giving them the impression that the tourists have become a integral part of the city.
