Split Large Cover Image

The largest city in Dalmatia, Split is on a peninsula in the Adriatic Sea and is  famous for its  ruins of the Palace of Diocletian (built 295–305 CE). From 812 Split developed as a major Byzantine city, then  from 1420 to 1797 it was held by Venice until the Austrians took over until  1918. Not surprisingly the Palace, together with the ancient  royal residences, fortifications, and churches means it becme a UNESCO site in 1979.
