This restaurant is run by a famous Croatian singer Grašo and his family. It has been in business for a long time and all that time it has had high-quality food and imaginative dishes. It has a wonderful view of the islands and the sea and a big open terrace. You can also try their pizza place that is next door to the restaurant but the view is not as spectacular. The prices are a bit higher than in an average restaurant but you'll get your money's worth. Service is excellent.

I love this cafe because they have excellent cakes. If you sit next to the sea the view is also spectacular, you'll be able to see the entire Kaštela Bay and small boats sailing off or coming to Lučica (small harbour).

Peristyle is the open square in the centre of the Palace surrounded by columns. It was a place of gathering and worship of Diocletian himself who considered himself deity. The columns on either side of the Peristyle and carved stone slabs between them divided this area from the Mausoleum and the temples. The columns are made of Egyptian granite. Peristyle gave access to the imperial apartments in the southern part of the Palace. From the early Middle Ages, the Peristyle became the religious and civic focus of the city. On the eastern side many Christian buildings were erected: the high Romanesque bell-tower of the cathedral, the Renaissance chapel of St Roch (now Tourist Info Centre).

Vestibule in Latin means entrance court. Diocletian entered into his imperial residence via Vestibule. Outside it has a square ground-plan, and inside a circular one. It was adorned and had many semi-circular recesses with statues in them. The interior of the Vestibule was once beautified with marble and there were mosaics in the dome. In 1912 attempts were made of strengthening the dome by using concrete ribs. These still further defaced what they were supposed to preserve. The ribs were removed in the 1947 and the lower part of the dome was partially restored. Vestibule is also amazing for its great acoustics. Croatian a cappella singing groups called KLAPE usually sing in the Vestibule.

The Diocletian Aqueduct is an ancient Roman aqueduct constructed to bring water to the Diocletian Palace, so it was constructed at the same time as the Palace (in 305 AD). The part above the ground with beautiful arches can be seen near Solin on the left side when you are entering the city of Split. It is 9 km long and is one of the first aqueducts built in Croatia. It took water from the river Jadro near Solin, which is where the water in Split comes from to this day. It was devastated in the 6th century by the Goths and renovated 13 centuries later, in 1880. A part of the aqueduct can be seen in Atrium hotel and it is possible to enter into the canal of the aqueduct.

One of the most important streets in Split that leads to Riva is Marmontova street which was called after marshal Marmont who was in charge of Dalmatia during the French rule from 1806 to 1813. It shows how important Marmont was for the development of the city of Split. In fact, many things were improved during the short French rule: they rebuilt roads, opened schools, hospitals and a post office. Strolling down this broad bustling avenue you can feel the beat of the city. While the soft sea breeze cools you on a hot summer day and the sun and its shimmer on the sea in the distance make you squint your eyes you will have caught a glimpse of the soul of Split.

The best preserved of the 4 gates of the Diocletian's Palace is the Golden Gate (the northern gate). It was the main entrance to the Palace. For that reason it used to be decorated with statues of the Emperor Diocletian and his co-regent Maximian which were placed in the upper row of the niches, and in the lower niches were the statues of their successors. The richly decorated consoles and capitals are still in place. On the capital to the west of the gate is a small but very important detail – the name Zotikos chiselled into the stone, one of the rare names of those who worked on the Palace.

The refugees that fled from the conquered Salona (Solin) in the 7th century to take shelter in the Palace chose St. Domnio (Duje) as the patron saint of what was to become the city of Split. Diocletian's Mausoleum became the cathedral of St. Domnio. The Mausoleum (now the Cathedral) is surrounded by 24 columns which carry a coffered ceiling. In its interior it has a circular form while the exterior is octagonal. St. Domnio's cathedral has wooden doors (walnut), decorated and carved by Andrija Buvina in 1214 which in 28 panels portray the life of Jesus. Right next to it stands a 57 m (187 feet) tall bell-tower built in the period from 13-16 centuries that you can climb for HRK15 (2 euro).

A 1700-year-old basement halls of the Palace have been completely preserved. They were the supporting substructure of the Emperor's residential quarters on the upper-floor. When the first settlers came from Salona in the 7th century many of them found temporary refuge in the basement. Since the city was developing above the substructure level, the basement halls gradually got filled up with debris and other waste material, and, so they became inaccessible in the course of time. That was precisely what preserved them. Only from 1955 did a systematic and planned excavation began. You can walk down the main corridor for free. To enter the other rooms you have to buy a ticket (HRK 42).

Six kilometers north of Split, in today's city of Solin lie the remains of the ancient city of Salona. It used to be the capital city of the Roman province of Dalmatia. It dates back to the 2nd century BC when it was a Greek settlement. It started as a small settlement surrounded by protective walls, but it soon started expanding. The city quickly acquired Roman characteristics: a forum, a theater, an amphitheater, public baths and an aqueduct. Outside the walls going west you can see sarcophagi, since Romans forbade burials inside the city boundaries, and a well preserved amphitheater where St. Doimo (Duje), the patron saint of Split, was killed under the order of emperor Diocletian.

The monument to Gregory of Nin (Cro: Grgur Ninski) in front of the Golden Gate is the work by Ivan Meštrović, Croatian sculptor of international renown. Almost eight meters tall (26 feet), the majestic bronze statue represents the Bishop of Nin, who at the First and Second Church Councils, held in Split in 925 and 928, strongly opposed the Pope and official circles of the Church and introduced the national language in the religious services. Until that time, services were held only in Latin. He was depicted by Ivan Meštrović as a symbol of national aspirations. Rubbing the statue's toe is said to bring good luck and be sure to make a wish. The toe has been worn smooth and shiny as a result.

A beautiful park on the southern promontory of Split that got its name from Sv. Stipan meaning St. Stephen. In the Middle Ages a Benedictine monastery of St. Stephen was erected on this site. The last Croatian king Stephen lived in the monastery after he had been secluded there in the late 11th century. The edifices that remain today are a small church from 18th century, and a Gloriette (neo-classic patio with a cupola) which is placed in the middle of the park and was designed by Vicko Andrić, a local architect. In the 19th century there used to be a cemetery which was soon moved just outside of Split because the city was expanding fast. You can come here to enjoy the view and chill out.
