The origins of Split date back to the Greek age; between 295 AD and 305 AD Emperor Diocletian ordered to build a majestic palace that is one of the biggest monuments preserved until nowadays.
The palace overlooks the sea and it was built according to the Roman military architecture, the castrum. The dimensions are amazing: the whole city of Split has been developed inside the Diocletian Palace, which is a unique jewel in the world, recognized as World Heritage by UNESCO.
There are four entrance gates (Golden, Silver, Iron, Bronze) situated at the four cardinal points. Upon the northern one you can admire the majestic statue of Gregor of Nin, the bishop who first used the Croatian language during the liturgy.
