What you'll do

Split: the tour starts in front of the southern wall of the palace, after hearing the story of how the emperor rose to power and built the palace, we set off into the palace and enter it through the incredibly well preserved substructures. Here we learn about the architecture of the palace and how the area managed to be preserved and then rediscovered.. After this we explore the remains of the Emperor's apartment and see how it changed over time. We stop at Vestibule- the entrance to the emperor's apartment, Peristyle- the main square of the palace, in front the Mausoleum-originally the grave of the emperor, but today the cathedral of St.Duje, Jupiter's Temple- today the baptistery of St. John and then proceed to the northern part of the palace, where the barracks of roman times still exist in fragments, and where numerous noblemen's palaces were built from the 13th to the 17th century. We exit the palace through the Emperor's gate(Golden gate) and then stop in front of the statue of Gregory from Nin, a 25-foot masterpiece sculpted by Croatia's finest, Ivan Mestrovic. After this, we see two additional medieval squares, People's square and Fruit square, and finish on the promenade.

Hrvoje

I am a professional tour guide with 10 years of experience. I have worked for every major company and cruise line that comes to my home. Whether it is a small private group, individuals or a large group, I can accommodate their needs to make the tour fun for everyone. Most of my groups would say that my style is entertainingly educational. My greatest passion is humor and history; mixing those two may seem difficult, but I tend to disagree. History writes comedies and it is my duty to present and spread these amazing stories. Come and learn a lifelong lesson, in the most fun way possible!
