In the very heart of Dalamtia, in the bay of Aspalathos (Split), well protected by the islands of Split Archipelago and on the land protected by the high mountains, Split was a natural fortress for the Roman Emperor. The palace he built for himself was beyond comparison in his time, although the palace has lost many of its original features over the last 17 centuries, it has been enriched by subsequent architectural and artistic interventions. Amongst these is the Catholic Cathedral, which rose out of the magnificent mausoleum of the last Pagan Roman Emperor.
The Cathedral dedicated to a Christian martyred by the very same Diocletian. There are number of magnificent small and large palaces from different periods standing beautifully dominating the fours famous piazzas in the old town along with many small beautiful buildings nowadays used as shops, bars, restaurants and boutique hotels.
Altogether this enchanting unique heart of Split has rightfully been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The lively promenade is a real delight especially at night when many locals and tourists gather over a drink, stroll and have a bite to eat. It has a real holiday feel, a wonderful place to enjoy the balmy summer evenings with your friends and family.
