Split

Split is the economic and administrative center of Middle Dalmatia, with about 200,000 inhabitants. The site was first settled when, at the end of the third century AD, the Roman Emperor Diocletian built his palace here. Many of Split’s historical and cultural buildings can be found within the walls of Diocletian’s Palace. In addition, numerous museums, the National Theatre, and old churches and other archeological sites in the Split region make it an important cultural attraction.
